From the owner

A luxury villa for family, friends and fun. This is Rustic Villa - hitherto only let in the summer, it is now available all the year round.

“Ta Cikku” (meaning “Of Cikku”, a diminutive of the name Francis) has been built with luxury very firmly in mind. Its 5 bedrooms and very large living areas can accommodate up to 10 people with ease. The main rooms are air-conditioned but this is billed separately (by a separate meter). A cleaner comes in every five days to ensure your comfort.

It is situated near the centre of the old village of Gharb, yet with open country views. Gharb has plenty of history as any of its local inhabitants will testify!

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”).

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.
