Wonderful traditional farmhouse perfect place for a family holiday.
The photos do not do it justice!
You enter through a walled gateway next to the windmill. Then enter a private walled garden with this beautiful pool and the famhouse in front of you. Delightful!
The pool is big enough for three lilos and an inner tube and all of our family.
4 bed rooms are on the first floor. 2 bedrooms on the ground floor.
There is a huge lounge/dining room with a smart tv. Good kitchen space too.
Shady areas to sit away from the pool. Two roof terraces.
Washing machine, all mod cons!
Albert has installed modern and effective air conditioning throughout.
Albert and Lily are friendly and very helpful.
We had a BRILLIANT time staying here. Lots of different levels and areas to explire within the property. Highly recommended this property.
Shops just down the road, bakery etc Many restaurants to choose from on the main square of this village. Playground, historic windmill and temple worth a visit too!
Loved the house, the location and the people. Before the holiday an throughout our stay communication was fast friendly and helpful. Cannot than everyone enough. Thank you
lovely place to stay with a few quirks
This is a great place to stay in the center of a lovely quiet historic village. The villa has 6 large rooms all tastefully decorated. It is exactly as you would imagine an old Gozoan farm house to be. There is no air conditioning but each room has a fan and the thick walls and careful use of the windows will keep you from getting too hot, even during the recent heatwave. There is also a reasonably sized and deep pool and several secluded shaded areas to keep cool and 2 sun terraces to get warm!
The kitchen is well equipped with a gas range, a large fridge freezer and plenty of china etc. There is also an outside barbecue. There are tables in the lounge for meals if you want to eat inside or tables by the pool to eat outside.
There are a few quirks - in that you might have to switch the shower and the tap on in the rooms to get water pressure. But, that is not too much of a difficulty when most rooms have en-suite. Not all of the rooms are lockable or in the same part of the house but you are in a big enclosure with high walls, so we never felt unsafe.
Alfred and Lilly are just wonderful lovely people and solved and minor issues as quick as possible. They were friendly and nice to talk to - as were most of the Gozoans that you meet.
Xaghra is NOT a nightspot but there are good restaurants in the square although most a ££ rather than £. Beer and wine is cheaper especially if you go to the nearby band club. There is lots of archaeology and history to see very nearby. E.g the caves, the neolithic monuments and the basillica. The buses stop next to the villa or very close by. It is easy to get to Victoria or Marsalforn by bus. Taxis are not easy to come by in Xaghra, but they are easy to get back.
There are numerous shops, a supermarket, a pharmacy, a carry out, florists and electrical stores close by. Just be careful of opening hours.
Special recommendation to the Hideaway Restaurant though it is only open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and the Cafe Reale (for Cake and iced coffee) in the afternoon.
The villa comfortably sleeps 12 (14 probably) and would be great for an extended family - with great places to play!
Located in a very quiet area in the centre of the village, walk out to the village square to enjoy a drink with the locals, take a five minute walk to see the Neolithic Temples of Ggantija or take a five minute drive to the beach.
