Description

TAL MASKLU GOZO SELF-CATERING FARMHOUSE - BY JULES

“Dating back to the 1700s, this lovely Gozo self-catering cottage is generously proportioned and distinctive in character. It boasts lots of original features to enhance the Mediterranean farmhouse feel – like the mater bedroom’s original cantagura limestone floor – but there’s all the contemporary home comforts you’d expect too.

“Adding to the Mediterranean flavour, you’ll find grapes growing on the patio trellis during summer.

“Then there’s Gharb itself, just a short stroll away, with shops, bars and restaurants waiting to be explored.

“Don’t be deceived by Tal Masklu’s small, hidden entrance. You’ll be surprised and delighted by how much house is hidden behind it.”

Tal Masklu Gozo self-catering farmhouse

Living space:

There’s a real grandeur and gravitas to Tal Masklu’s living space that you really have to see and feel for yourself. Beneath its arches and within its thick, traditional stone walls, you’ll find comfortable sofas, a wood burning fire, and a flat screen TV with cable and Wi-Fi.

It all makes for a welcome escape from the sun.

Bedrooms:

Bedroom 1 is cosy and self-contained, independent from the main house and nestled beside the pool amongst a pretty herb garden. It has two single beds and an en-suite shower room.

The remaining 3 bedrooms (and a family bathroom) are on the first floor, reached via a bright and airy landing with a comfortable seating area. Two staircases lead to the first floor: one external stone stairway and the other an internal wrought iron spiral staircase from the kitchen.

The master bedroom is grand and spacious, and features an antique dresser, a solid mahogany bed and wardrobes, and its signature cantagura tiles. Double patio doors open onto a spacious terrace with views of the garden and pool.

Bedroom 3 is similarly sized and has a similar authentic feel. It also has an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom 4 has a single bed.

Outdoors:

Double terrace doors lead from the kitchen to the pool and spacious terrace – perfect for lazy days and tempting barbecues.

Location description from owner

The Island of Gozo region

WELCOME TO GOZOLet me tell you about the Mediterranean's best kept secret.5km North West of Malta and south of Sicily, the small island is 9 miles long and 5 miles wide – the equivalent of Manhattan! It was first inhabited in 50000 BC when farmers from nearby Sicily crossed the Mediterranean and settled. Today it has about 27 000 residents. Not just a summer gem, it's a worthy all-year destination.Fondly regarded as having “stood still”, Gozo has managed to preserve its traditional ways whilst adapting to the future. The island is relaxing, peaceful and “laid back”, compared to Malta. It is rural and green with beautiful countryside landscapes and coastal views. For a small island, Gozo has a big personality, rich in folk law, history and culture. Rustic, charming, and charismatic with a warm hospitality, describes Gozo. Unique and authentic, the Gozo experience lures visitors back time after time. “Foodies” are also drawn to the island by the variety of excellent fresh and flavoursome Mediterranean Gozitan cuisine. Its wineries also produce some of the most respected wines.Gozo's main town is Victoria where you'll find a hive of activity. There are many café's, bars, restaurants and shops, a Culture Centre and the Citadel, Victoria's Cathedral. There are 2 shopping arcades, each with a supermarket open all day. Pjazza Independenza is Victoria's main square, shared by a morning market and number of open air café's. It is normally found buzzing with the chatter of locals and tourists enjoying a coffee or Cisk. Great for people watching.Victoria is surrounded by 13 smaller towns and villages. The main bus terminus is here with a network of routes to all villages. There is now a frequent Gozo “Hop on, Hop off Bus”. A great leisurely way to see all of Gozo. BEACHESThere are five main beaches on Gozo and many smaller bays and coves. Beaches include; Xlendi it is possible to swim in a small sandy beach or paddle, dive and snorkel off surrounding rocks. Xlendi is an excellent dive site, a thriving fishing village and small harbour.Malsaforn has one of the best known bays and buzzes with a hype of activity in summer months. Restaurants and bars surround the turquoise Mediterranean, serving local cuisine such as Gbejniet (cheese), fresh local fish and rabbit. Lampuki is a seasonal speciality. As migrating fish, they pass the island in autumn. Ramla is Gozo's largest, yet unspoilt and beautiful beach dating back to Roman times. It is a vast blanket of red sand, ideal for sun worshipers. The sea is shallow and perfect for children.San Blas is a delightful little beach of red sand. Of exceptional charm, it is quaint, idyllic. Quite secluded, it always escapes the crowdsDahlet Qorrot beach is quaint and you can swim from rocks on both sides in crystal clear water. Fishermen use this tranquil bay as a base and boats can be seen bobbing quietly on the sea.The Azure Window at San Lawrenz is a popular feature on the tourist map. It is a natural arch formed out of the sea millions of years ago when a limestone cave collapsed, RELIGION AND HISTORYReligion and culture play a significant role in life on Gozo. The Saints are the focus of worship both past and present. For such as small island, Gozo has a high concentration of churches - forty six in total. Each village has a unique church. So impressive, they say is the church dome in Xewkija is larger than St Paul's in London!Every year, Gozo celebrates its Saints by organising spectacular feasts throughout the summer months. Each town and village will host a splendid “festa” with celebrations every weekend from late May to mid-September. Each festa is organised in honour of the patron saint to whom the parish is dedicated. These are lively celebrations with coluorful illuminations, brass bands, processions and plenty of fireworks. The façade of the village church and main streets are dressed with thousands of twinkling lights. Scenes we may compare to a major street party – but times a thousand. Other churches and temples of historic acclaim include Ta' Pinu Church. This is Gozo's national shrine and most iconic church. Legend has it that Ta' Pinu touched many with its mysterious powers and today, is a world renowned relic. Also parts of Gozo's heritage are a number of historic temples. The Ggantija Temples in Xaghra, a World Heritage Site, are the oldest freestanding temples in the world. Dating back to 3500BC, they are attributed to a mythical giantess. CLIMATEThe temperatures are typical of a lovely Mediterranean climate and long warm summer. Warmer temperatures appear as early as March and climb steadily as months of April and May are very pleasant. June can offer hot climate with July through to September being the hottest – average temperature 30C/86F. As we would expect, August is the hottest. October is a great time to visit if you're looking for less heat but a pleasant sunny climate. Although lesser temperatures November to February, these months can still offer as many days of 5 – 6 hours of pleasant sunshine.
