Farmhouse in Xaghra, Island of Gozo, Malta-Gozo - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Walk To Town Centre And 10 Minute Drive To Beach
About Krishna Ramcharran
I live in the Scottish Borders with my wife, 2 boys, our 4 year old black lab and 14 year old Russian Blue. We love chilling out together.
Krishna Ramcharran purchased this Farmhouse in 2001
Why Krishna Ramcharran chose Xagħra
My wife and I visited Gozo by chance in 2001. After a long weekend we had fallen in love with the island and had purchased the farmhouse. Since then we've had two boys who in turn have also fallen in love with the Island. The farmhouse is our second home and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Relax and enjoy the tranquillity and privacy of our garden and pool. If your feeling energetic Ramla bay a lovey sandy beach is just a 10minute drive away. Looking for a pre-dinner cocktail then sample our olives and lemons from our mini orchard. Finally having worked up an appetite check out the local restaurants in the village square a 10-15 minute walk and sample the fantastic local cuisine, or visit the oldest bakery on the island for fantastic bread and pizza - a 10minute walk away.

Third stay. Ideal holiday farmhouse.
Our stay was as lovely as the previous ones. Goodies left in fridge by owner which is always a bonus. Good facilities. Fantastic pool but outdoor furniture needs attention.
Beautiful villa but furnishings desperately need updating
Beautiful building and lovely big pool. The location is great and a nice walk into the village with lots of choice of good restaurants.
What let’s the farmhouse down is the furnishings. The garden furniture is old, with broken arms, not adjustable and poor cushions.
The living room sofas are in poor condition and covered with some grubby throws.
The dishwasher was rusty, smelly and filthy. I did try and use it once but it didn’t wash anything.
If these were replaced this would be a perfect property however at the moment they are letting the building down.
Excellent facilities very well equipped though garden furniture is a bit run down.
Nice setting , Gozo is much more rural than Malta therefore ideal for those who like to get away from it all. Plenty of good restaurants however if you do not wish to cater for yourself. Great cliff top walks and fantastic views around the island.
Thank you so much, Krishna, for letting us stay at your amazing farmhouse. It certainly lives up to the photos and we enjoyed staying there immensely. We are a family of four and there was so much space - the property has such interesting characteristics (e.g spiral staircase, external staircase within the enclosed inner courtyard, four poster beds etc). It could easily have accommodated another couple of people.
We had planned on staying in Gozo, but visiting Malta too - however, we loved Gozo so much we stayed there the whole week and only visited Valetta on the way back to the airport. There was certainly enough to see (and more) for a week on Gozo. We found the recommendations you provided in the welcome booklet very useful - thank you.
Our teenage children liked the wifi and the full package of TV/film/sports packages available. The showers were hot and powerful, which was great. Thank you for the welcome food package and you (and the agent) were really fantastic at communicating and quickly sorting out any questions we had.
Many thanks again x
Lovely house with lots of character.
We enjoyed our holiday in Gozo very much. Xaghra is a charming village with lots of places to eat and drink and plenty going on in the square, especially in the run up to the festa. The house is full of character and has a lovely garden area and pool. The welcome pack was much appreciated.
We hope to return again one day.
Character farmhouse on a beautiful island
Lovely large farmhouse with plenty of facilities - 2 ensuites upstairs, downstairs bathroom, very large living room and well appointed kitchen with a great modern oven (which you don't always get abroad). We loved the pool area which, although you could hear neighbours next door, was very private and not directly overlooked. Gozo had developed a bit since we last visited 12 years ago but still had a great laid back feel. We agreed with comments in the visitor book that the fridge is a bit small - perhaps the owners could think about supplementing with another fridge on the terrace? We also found the bedroom furniture just a bit too rustic for our taste. However neither of these points distracted from a peaceful break in this lovely property.
