L-Ghabex is a rustic style villa built at the edge of the village of Ghasri. Set in the countryside, the back (pool area) overlooks terraced unobstructed countryside. Very quiet location. The villa comprises an entrance hall with a live planter, leading into an internal courtyard ideal for shaded relaxation and reading which further leads into the main living/TV den/dining and kitchen area, all combined in one huge open space. This area opens directly onto the very private swimming pool and deck area complete with B-B-Q.

Unobstructed country views and the landmark shrine of Ta'Pinu makes the view from the back unique. A spare toilet/shower and laundry room complete the ground floor. In the upper floor 4 bedrooms, all with an en-suite bathroom, makes this villa your natural holiday place.

Further details indoors

This property is very nicely finished with rustic furniture and soft furnishings. Bedrooms are all very airy and all have own en-suite bathrooms, making them very private. Ceiling fans installed and electric heaters are made available in winter. In the TV den/living room , a live fireplace makes this villa a very romantic and unique winter setting. Kitchen is well equipped with crockery and cutlery, electric kettle, toaster, gas cooker/oven, dishwasher, 2 fridge freezers (for the bigger groups). Hot water supplied through electric heaters all year round. BBQ available at the outdoor pool area. Cable TV, internet WiFi and telephone available and included in the price (needs card to phone out).

Further details outdoors

The exterior is made up of a very quiet hamlet at the edge of the village, the home of a handful of farmers. Surrounded by countryside and nature. We would like you to respect the environment and the produce in the surrounding land. If you are a nature enthusiast, L-Ghabex would make your perfect base as on foot or bicycle you can explore the natural gems of "Wied il-Ghasri", il-Fanal (lighthouse) and the hills that characterise the north of Gozo. Highly recommended in the middle seasons when the heat is less and the greener land is more, the area has a lot of walking tracks that one can explore.

The Island of Gozo region

Gozo is the smaller of the inhabited islands of the Maltese archipelago. It is situated north-west of mainland Malta. Life in Gozo is calmer, slower and therefore relaxing. Away from the noisy and chaotic city life, Gozo is the place where time stands still.

The mostly farming community leads a simple life. The ratio of countryside vs built-up areas in Gozo are highly in favour of open land and there is a lot to explore in nature and culture. Gozo is a supreme diving location for the deep sea enthusiasts.


Ghasri is a typical Gozitan farming village with a total population of less than 1000. In the Ghammar hamlet

live a handful of people, and in particular around L-Gahbex, one extended family.

"One of a kind"

Maybe I should not be writing a raving review. It's like letting the world know of a well kept secret. But I think I owe it to the owner for the unbeatable hospitality shown to us during our repeat visits to l-Ghabex.

L-Ghabex is situated in an idyllic location. The view from the pool area is of the unmissable Ta Pinu Church. If you happen to wake up very early in the morning, the view from the bedroom of sunrise over Ta Pinu with the church surrounded by mist will stay in your mind for ever.

L-Ghabex is equipped with all you can possibly need. Gozo is very small, so whatever you need is never far away. Yet l-Ghabex is in a secluded alley with the only noise being that of the occasional cricket and the peaceful church bells. Parking is not an issue.

Truly a home away from home.
