The Island of Gozo region
Gozo is the second largest of three Islands in the archipelago of the Maltese Island sat in the South of The Mediterranean. It benefits from wonderful weather all year around.
Gozo is easily accessible by a 15 minute ferry ride from Malta, is quieter than Malta and provides a tranquil, yet far from boring holiday experience. Gozo has good beaches and is blessed with many walking trails and historical sites. Gozo is also a migratory path for many birds and is a haven for the bird enthusiast. There are also many opportunities for snorkeling, diving, sailing and fishing.
Xaghra is centrally located for enjoying the sights and sounds of the beautiful island of Gozo. The beautiful beaches of Ramla Bay and San Blas Bay are within striking distance and easily accessible by car or just a 40 minute walk away. Xaghra itself hosts the World's oldest Neolithic Temples, which are a World Heritage Centre.
The central Church Square of Xaghra is just 10 minutes stroll away and is replete with excellent cafes, bars and restaurants for the discerning diner. A mix of Mediterranean, Gozitan and Asian food is on offer within walking distance of the farmhouse.
Xaghra is one of the larger towns in Gozo and is close to the central City of Rabat, just a 5 minute drive away where you can shop, wander and enjoy the many and amazing historical sites of The Citadel.

"Characterful farmhouse in a lovely town, great courtyard - home from home."
Everything about this rental was great. The house was so quirky and beautiful in the uniquely peaceful setting of Xaghra and Gozo. Every major point of interest on the island within short driving dist… More
I am so pleased that you had such a relaxing time in Razzett Ta' Marija. The private rear garden and pool are just perfect and as you say the annexe is ideal for those with limited mobility, larger families sharing and makes for an excellent teenagers' retreat. I hope very much to provide a 'home from home' and so I was very glad that you found all you needed for your comfort during your stay.
The island of Gozo is easy enough to explore by car, bicycle, walking or the reliable public transport. Xaghra itself is just a 5 minute walk away and is a great village to enjoy good food and wine.
We hope to see you again some time.

"Great location for relaxing or exploring, lovely Gozitan farmhouse"
I've just returned from a week on Gozo with a group of friends (five in total) at this lovely farmhouse in Xaghra. It was large enough to give us space to be apart, yet also to eat together at either the kitchen or patio tables; the kitchen has been very recently refurbished to a very high standard, and includes a dishwasher to save time on mundane chores. The area around the pool is spacious, with high quality loungers, umbrellas, sofa, coffee and dining tables, plus a barbecue: the pool itself was a little on the chilly side for me after one of the regular cleanings, as it's fed from an underground well and that water is cold… but it was only May and it quickly warmed up a few degrees in the continuous sunshine we enjoyed. The bedrooms & bathrooms are well equipped and all window have mosquito screens.
It is perfectly situated to use as a centre to explore the island, which at roughly 8.5 miles by 4.5 miles is entirely walkable if you enjoy that sort of thing – the nearest beach, at Ramla, is only about an hour on foot at a relaxed pace. It is only a few minutes' walk from the main square, and a selection of reasonably-priced restaurants with excellent food – I'd personally recommend Oleander on the square (especially their daily fresh fish), and the nearby Xi-Xi Chinese restaurant. There are also handy food shops, including a very nice bakery & sandwich shop (Stephen's) and a nearby mini-supermarket.
Car rental is not really necessary, as the bus service (which includes an open-top hop-on, hop-off bus touring the island) is regular & comfortable. But if you're minded to explore wonderful locations such as Mdina, the Mosta Dome or Mellieha on Malta itself, then a car may be handy – Brits will be pleased to know that the Maltese drive on the left!
The owners, Ginette & Barry, have very helpfully provided a folder containing useful information, including a history of the farmhouse itself, and specific features to look out for. It was remarkably easy to book the farmhouse online, and Ginette was very helpful in responding swiftly to emails and also providing information on bus & ferry times to assist with our journeys to & from the airport.
An excellent holiday and I look forward to a return trip.
I was so glad to hear that you and your friends had such a good time at the farmhouse. I guess the pool would be just a little chilly at the start of May, so well done for getting in!
The farmhouse is deceptively spacious and yet still cosy and characterful at the same time. The large rear deck area with plentiful seating and dining is certainly one of the farmhouse's delights.
We hope to see you again soon.
