Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Ta' Leli Farmhouse is an expertly converted 100 year old farmhouse situated in the rural area in the heart of the village of Gharb Gozo. It is surrounded by spectacular country views, having access to bars, restaurants and food supermarkets within a 5 minute car drive.
This property was used as a family home by the parents of the current owner. The ground floor used to be occupied by the animals and their mill, while the family used to live upstairs. Having a number of memories attributed to it, this property was extremely close to the owners' hearts, and so they decided to tastefully convert the house to cater for the modern comforts of the 21st century including the introduction of a swimming pool and a deck area, while making every effort to preserve the original features of the house and using local materials in an innovative and authentic way. Having a license from the Malta Tourism Authority, the couple started renting this property and they continued improving their property based on the feedback they received from their guests. Their main aim is to provide their guests with an enjoyable and relaxing stay in the comfort of their farmhouse.
The farmhouse is able to accommodate 6 persons, however 2 folding beds can be added if need be, raising the capacity to 8 persons.
Ground floor has a twin bedroom with ensuite shower, wc, washbasin. Small lobby with seating, separate shower, wc and washbasin for the ground floor twin. Large combined kitchen, dining sitting room. Kitchen has built in hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and T.V. with door leading to private pool and terrace equipped with BBQ. Outside pool shower and toilet are also available.
First floor has another twin bedroom with ensuite shower/wc.wb and a large master bedroom with double four poster bed and large comfortable sitting area. This has an ensuite bath/wc/wb and a door to terrace overlooking the pool.
Although the property does not have a garage, there is ample street parking available. Being a family-run business, the owners are very flexible with their guests, and they try to accommodate every wish of their clients. Therefore, should you have any queries please do contact them.

The Island of Gozo region
Believed to have been inhabited at an earlier stage than its sister island of Malta, Gozo boasts a varied history and a rich cultural heritage. It is estimated that in 5000 BC, farmers from nearby Sicily settled first on the island, leaving behind beautiful earthenware resembling that found in Agrigento, Sicily, as well as impressive stone structures known as the Ggantija temples. Deemed to be the world’s oldest free-standing structures, these temples are a vivid symbol of Gozo’s early cultural and religious evolution.
In the period following the birth of Christianity, the island of Gozo witnessed the arrival of the Phoenicians, who were followed by the Carthaginians and eventually the Romans. It is also believed that Christianity reached the Maltese islands in 60 AD through St Paul. This was then superseded by an Arab period which started in the late 9th century AD, after the Arabs had taken over the neighbouring island of Sicily. The Arab influence can still be felt on our toponymy and on our names and surnames, as well as on our present language, which has a clearly identifiable semitic base.
The Normans came to rule the islands in 1090; after this period Malta and Gozo experienced brief periods under the Knights of St John, Napoleonic rule and the British Empire successively. Both islands were involved during the First and Second World Wars due to their strategic position in the Mediterranean region; these were times during which the islands suffered heavy bombardment. In 1964, after thousands of years under many a foreign rule, Malta and Gozo gained their independence and continue to enjoy national autonomy, having also recently become members of the European Union.
Both Malta and Gozo have a rich history to tell due to their varied centuries-old cultural influences and heritage. Gozo, the sister island that is smaller in size and somehow less industrialised than Malta, stands nonetheless at the same level of importance, having an impressive array of traditions, archaeological gems, and a haunting landscape and seascape that are unique to this mythical Mediterranean island.
Gharb is said to be one of the oldest villages in Gozo, where various discoveries from the Neolithic period and Bronze Age were made. Gharb also houses the Ta' Pinu Sanctuary, a place of pilgrimage and worship. Among the attractions of this village are the Gharb Folklore Museum and the Ta' Dbiegi Crafts Village, displaying various handcrafts such as traditional Gozo lace, filigree, pottery and mouth-blown glass. This picturesque village is well known for its beautiful old-style farmhouses adorning its landscape.
