Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
‘Armonija’ is a newly finished house at the outskirts of the beautiful village of Qala. The house is situated just above one of the many beaches to be found on the idyllic island of Gozo.
The house is minutes away from the ferry terminal and five minutes drive from Qala’s main sandy beaches of Hondoq ir-Rummien, San Blas and Dahlet Qorrot. Ramla l-Hamra, Gozo’s largest sandy beach is just ten minutes drive away.
The property has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6. The two main bedrooms, each with their own terrace offer the breathtaking panorama of countryside and the Mediterranean Sea. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with one of the main bedrooms also having a whirpool bath. On the ground floor one can also find another bathroom close to the living area.
The premises are designed on an old country house style. The ground floor is split on two levels where one can find a large living/dining area featuring massive limestone arches, in Maltese “?nejja”, a typical feature found in old local farmhouses, as one of the main archictectual features of the house. A modern stark white kitchen equipped with all modern cooking amenities stands to the side of the living area. A large dining table seating 8 people is situated on one side of this large room.
A big 4 seater sofa stands on another corner of the room. Opposite is a 42” LCD TV with Cable TV offering a variety of channels in several languages. Wireless internet coverage is also available throughout the whole area.
A big wooden/glass door at the back of the living area opens up to the pool and deck area. Typical Maltese rubble walls surround the property offering a truly Mediterranean experience and privacy without spoiling the majestic views. Wooden garden furniture, a BBQ set and deck chairs are situated close to the pool area for one to enjoy a truly relaxing holiday.
Adding character to the house are the stone stairways which lead to the first and second floor. The first floor houses two bedrooms and two other rooms leading to the bedrooms, which can be used as sitting rooms. Along the corridor one finds another stairway leading to a bedroom on the second floor.
This bedroom, being secluded from the rest of the house, offers more privacy and tranquility. Two glass doors lead to two terraces ; one offering views of country and sea while the other overlooking the court. A big spacious bathroom ensuite is complete with a whirpool tub. A 5kg washing machine and clothes line are found on one of the terrraces.
The house, decorated with country and modern fixtures, brings beauty, tradition and modern lifestyles together; so truly living up for its name ‘Harmony’, which simply translated in Maltese is ‘Armonija’

Despite its compact size, Gozo has a lot to offer. Historical places can be found in an abundance, as a visit to the Ggantija temples is a must! It is believed that these temples are older than the Pyramids of Egypt in actual fact. They date back to 3.500 years B.C !

"Fantastic villa, peaceful location, beautiful views"
This villa is huge, tastefully decorated throughout, even an en-suite hot tub attached to one of the bedrooms. The photos do not really show the many balconies and sheer height of entrance hallway and downstairs lounge which is quite impressive. The pool is smallish but perfectly adequate for cooling off, which as we stayed in August was a bit of a must!
Kevin was most helpful, meeting us at the ferry point and guiding us back to the villa, which was just a five minute drive away.
Qala is a peaceful rural location but is still close to all the main attractions and beaches due to the sialnd of Gozo being small anyway. I would recommend a car for getting around so that you can truly explore this wonderful place.
Thanks Kevin and hope to return one day.

"Fabulous property, lovely location, incredibly accommodating owner!"
Armonija is almost exactly as described, only better! The house is very spacious, light and airy. We were a party of six, ranging in age from 21 to mid-60's, and the property lent itself to both communal living and having one's own space. It is beautiful, brand new and stylishly furnished, and well equipped. Being the first people to use it, we did miss those little 'extras' that accumulate in houses over time, but if we mentioned anything to the owner Kevin, we were sure to have it the next day! Kevin lives locally and was there to meet us on arrival and he was very helpful with information about the local area and suggestions of where to go and what to see. Qala is a lovely village, bigger than I had imagined, with a mix
of housing. We walked to the square most days, where there are a couple of excellent
general stores that seem to sell everything! There is also a pharmacy and a very good butcher. The walk only takes 10-15 minutes and whilst it is a bit of a hill on the way back, one of the stores does offer local deliveries if necessary! There is also a green grocer, baker and fishmonger we saw selling from their vehicles just outside the property. The two restaurants we tried ( there are 4 or 5 to choose from) offered fresh home made food and excellent service and the local Zeppi's bar is fun, with occasional live music. We barbecued quite a bit and ate out by the pool. The pool area is totally private, but the property is in a courtyard setting and attached, so we were aware of other people being around. But they all seemed very nice and we were never bothered by any noise. Hopefully we did not disturb them too much!
The local bus service is very good but a car makes things much easier. We rented a jeep
on the island from Eagle Garage and also used their taxi service for airport transfers. The
owner Franky and his wife are great, really helpful and accommodating and their service is
very competitively priced.
Overall it was an excellent week and I will definitely stay again!
