Location description from manager

The Island of Gozo region

Many visitors wrongly presume that Gozo is just an extension of its larger sister, Malta. Though its villages are built from the same honey-colours limestone, Gozo has a completely different ambience. Gozo’s capital, Victoria lies approximately in the centre of the island and a visit to its historic citadel is a must. The fishing villages of Marsalforn and Xlendi, set around eye-catching bays, has developed as the focal resort for tourists.

Diving and swimming are excellent in the deep blue waters around Gozo’s coastline. There are also good walks both along the coast and inland, passing by family farms and farmhouses where one could enjoy historical sites, forts and remarkable panoramas. Some of the most picturesque scenery of all the Maltese islands can be found in Gozo- there's always something to discover, whatever the season. Gozo is not meant for rushing around, but for relaxing at its peaceful bays, sipping a coffee or a beer at its local bars and cafes, or enjoying a traditional meal at its pleasant restaurants.

Xaghra

Ix-Xaghra (pronounced: shara) is built on a hill to the central north-east of the island of Gozo. It lies just under four kilometres from Rabat, the town of the island, and is aptly described as the village of the goddess and the Madonna. Ix - Xaghra was one of the earliest inhabited areas of Gozo. In early modern documents, the plateau is referred to as Xaghret il-Ghazzenin.. In modern times, the people first settled on the hill's highest point, aptly called tal-Qacca. This was Italianized to Caccia, the name by which ix-Xaghra is referred to in the majority of written documents until before the Second world War.

This earliest sector of the village is now referred to as ta' Sant'Anton, after the dedication of a late Medieval chapel dedicated to Saint Antony the Abbot. In the spoken language, the place was commonly referred to as ix-Xaghra, literally, a rocky plateau covered with patches of red soil. The name is derived from the second sector or central area of the hill known as Xaghret il-Ghazzenin, the herdsmen's, literally lazimen's,plateau. Eventually the name Ix-Xaghra prevailed.

A third sector of the village that developed on the eastern part of the hill became known as ta' Gajdoru. It is thought that the name is derived from a chapel of the blessed V irgin Mary of Joys, Latin Gaudiorum, that once stood in that area, but the derivation is dubious. This section is now referred to as tan-Nazzarenu, after the dedication of still another chapel that was built in the area early in the twentieth century. Colloquially, it is referred to as t’hemm isfel, of the lower sector. The name of ix-Xaghra is first recorded as thax ahara in the acts of Notary Joannes Bondin (Notarial Archives, N A V, R 69) on 17 February 1518. The inhabitants of the Village are referred to as ix-Xaghrin.
