About the property

Villa in Birbuba, Gharb, Island of Gozo, Malta-Gozo - Extremely Tranquil Location, 10 Minutes Drive Away From Anywhere On Gozo

Razzett Harruba is a fabulous house of character in ‘Birbuba’, an extremely tranquil ‘cul de sac’ on the outskirts of the village Gharb and just a few minutes’ walk from the famous San Dimitri chapel. The house is a couple of kilometres away from Dwejra and close to cliffs on the North and West coast of Gozo. This area around the farmhouse is an ideal location for country walks, making the house a great place to stay in Spring and Autumn as well as the Summer season. The farmhouse has been built using traditional Maltese architectural features like wooden beams, limestone arches, stone floors and wrought iron. Swimming Pool faces West giving spectacular views of the sunsets. The surrounding terrace is ideal to lounge around and has plenty of space for BBQ’s as well. The pool is 5.25mt x 2.75mt (Shallow part is 1.2mt deep and deep end is 2.2mt deep). There is an outside shower near pool. The kitchen leads into a large sitting/dining room that overlooks the pool/BBQ area. Views of the sun setting on the sea in the distance beyond the Gozitan countryside can be enjoyed from here. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, gas cooker/electric oven, microwave oven, electric toaster and electric kettle, and is open plan with the Dining Area.
