Our spacious, 5 bed, 6 bathroom terraced house with on the roof pool enjoying the sun which is the perfect place for your holiday, on the beautiful island of Gozo, Malta.

The Terraced House situated within a short walking distance of the village of Xewkija with it's good selection of restaurants and other amenities, very close to supermarkets selling daily fresh products to great wines,beers etc.....

Ta Ferrres enjoy 2 terrace, on the top floor where one can enjoy most part of the island and the other terrace enjoy the pool . It is 10 mins drive away from the capital city Victoria and 20 minutes drive from the Azzure Window at Dwerja Inland Sea which is ideal for diving. Xlendi/Ramla bay/San Blas bay are sandy beaches Marsalforn and Hondoq and are all 15minute drive.

Xewkija lies 3 kms east of Victoria. It's name is derived from the Maltese word 'Xewk', meaning thistles or thorns. It is dominated by a huge rotunda church completed in 1971 having taken around 20 years to build. It was built to rival the Mosta Rotunda in Malta and it succeeds in height, but not in diameter. The dome is larger than St Paul's Cathedral in London, and can hold a congregation of 3000 - around the entire population of Xewkija. The village was the first parish outside the capital, and it is said to be the first place on Gozo to convert to Christianity.

Gozo is Malta's secret hideaway island. Not many in the outside world know it actually exists.

It is only a short ferry ride away and yet it offers a completely different experience to the main island. Here, as we say, “every day is a Saturday – apart from Sunday!” Laid back, tranquil, it is the perfect get-away place.

Although largely unknown, it has history. Folklore has it that Gozo is the legendary island of Ogygia to which the nymph Calypso lured Odysseus on his return from Troy. He was held captive for seven years. And the chances are, you will be captivated too. Once people come here they tend to want to stay – as many settlers bear witness.

The oldest buildings in the world are here, at Ggantija (pronounced “jig-antia”) temples – older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge!

Our coastline tends to be rugged, not dissimilar to the north coast of Cornwall. Stunning cliff top walks in winter and spring are a treat. And the experience of diving off the rocks into deep, blue, crystal clear water in our hot summer is second to none. Or splash in the sea at Ramla, our main sandy beach, if you prefer!

Agriculture and fishing still form the bulk of the island's product. The landscape is a mosaic of miniature fields lovingly tended. Traditional luzzus still put to sea from the harbours and coves. Local fish, fruit and veg could not be fresher.

For an island only about eight miles long by four wide, Gozo has plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. The busy little capital Victoria is where it is busiest – except from 12 noon till four when everything shuts down for siesta! Marsalforn and Xlendi, originally fishing villages, are the main seaside resorts, with their own little beaches. Buzzing in August, they follow the Gozitan rules of being laid-back, for the rest of the year!

The Sunday Times recently voted Gozo one of its top destinations. Our main beach – Ramla Bay (from the Maltese word ramel, meaning sand grain) – is tops, too. For sunbathing, picnicking or building sandcastles, it is an unspoilt paradise.

All year round there are special events. The summer is the main time for festas, when all the villages celebrate their patron saints. The two main ones are in Victoria – Saint George, in July, and Santa Maria, in August, when everything and everyone goes mad with fireworks, band marches and partying! Off-season there are almost two weeks of Carnival in February and the wonderful Mediterranean festival in October, with opera and other cultural events.

Gozo is a very special place. Largely unknown to the outside world it has, nonetheless, attracted many people through the ages. Folklore has it that Gozo is the legendary island of Ogygia to which the nymph Calypso lured Odysseus on his return from Troy. He was held captive for seven years.

And the chances are, you will be captivated too. Once people come here they tend to want to stay – as many settlers bear witness.

Xewkija is one of the oldest village in Gozo and is home to this large and charming holiday home offered exclusively by Gozo Luxury Properties.

There is evidence that people lived here as long ago as c.3,800 BC. The Phoenicians used to plan their sea journeys west from here. Later, the Romans, also, built a small settlement. It's name is derived from the Maltese word 'Xewk', meaning thistles or thorns..

It is no surprise that foreigners, in particular those from the UK, like this place. There are still signs of the old British occupation, which lasted nearly two hundred years. The traditional red telephone and post boxes are still very much in use – as well as the local police station's blue lamp! Many foreigners have come to settle here and many old farmhouses have been carefully restored. There are several bars and a couple of restaurants within walking distance.

The village is surrounded by dry-stonewalled fields and the peace that is part of an agricultural community. Like other villages it is characterised by narrow streets of terraced stone housing of varying age and style. The church dominates the central piazza. At night, when the stars come out, the silence dedescends almost palpably.

Xewkija

Gharb is the oldest village in Gozo and his home to the larger of the two charming holiday homes offered exclusively by Gozo Luxury Properties.

There is evidence that people lived here as long ago as c.3,800 BC. The Phoenicians used to plan their sea journeys west from here. Later, the Romans, also, built a small settlement. When the Arabs settled they gave their language to the Maltese – and the name Gharb is derived from Arabic (the GH is silent, so it is pronounced “Arb”).

The traditional red telephone and post boxes are still very much in use – as well as the local police station’s blue lamp!
