Description

This delightful small villa near the quaint village of Xaghra has been beautifully converted from a traditional farmhouse and exudes charm and rusticity from every corner.

Built from local stone and notable for its large arched windows and doorways, it stands alongside similar properties and boasts a wonderful small swimming pool, which is walled to give you maximum privacy during your sunbathing and swimming sessions. Suntrap terraces surround the water, giving plenty of room for topping up your tan and the owners have provided a barbecue to make your days here even more enjoyable. Lovely wooden doors from the terrace bring you into a gorgeous, open-plan sitting-dining room tucked under original stone arches and comfortably furnished with well-cushioned wickerwork armchairs and a sofa. Close by is a wooden dining table just the right thing for candlelit suppers, and the adjoining kitchen has a romantic spiral staircase to the bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms, upstairs.

A useful external staircase leading from the poolside is also perfect for easy showers and changes in your bedroom after a swim.

If you can drag yourself away from this cosy retreat, the famous Ggantija temples and Xaghra, with its shops, restaurant, grottoes and toy museum are handily close by, as are the sands of Ramla Bay.

Location description from manager

The Island of Gozo region

Gozo, which in Maltese is called Għawdex (pronounced: Awdesh),. It has an area of 67 square kms, is 14 kms long and 7 kms wide. With a coastline of 43 km, it is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago that, together with the smaller isle of Comino and the main island of Malta form the Republic of Malta.

To Get to Gozo, it involves a 25 minute ferry crossing. It therefore enjoys warm summers and mild winters and this makes it the ideal holiday destination at any time of the year.

Gozo earned its popular nickname the Island of the Three Hills probably derived from the hilly view when observed from mainland Malta. Throughout the years Gozo has been vastly influenced by the cultures and history of a series of dominators including the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, the Knights of St. John, the French and the British, who all left their mark on the cultural and the folklorists heritage of the population.

In comparison with mainland Malta, one finds a more varied geology and larger relief contrasts, with typical flat-topped hills.The island of Gozo is not overpopulated, and therefore greener and quite more peaceful.

The main sources of income are from Tourism, Agriculture, Fishing together with a number of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Xaghra

Apart from being in itself a picturesque village, the village of Xaghra is rich in historical heritage and therefore has plenty to offer to its visitors. Situated on the north east of the capital town of Victoria, on a lengthy stretch of high ground, Xaghra is encircled by the beautiful bays of Ramla, Ghajn Barrani and Marsalforn, while the valleys of Ramla, Ta' l-Ghejjun and Marsalforn caress this lovely village. Ramla Bay with its unique honey-red sand is by far the most popular beach on the island.

The plateau hilltop on which the town stands descends towards several evergreen valleys. Amongst them one finds the Eghzien Valley and Ghajn Xejba Valley, which lead into Marsalforn Valley. The terraced fields are the utmost fertile areas and are henceforth the source of the best agricultural products and grapes of the highest quality.Xaghra is certainly one of the spots in Gozo where there has been human habitation since extremely early times. Here one can find the Neolithic temples of Ggantija, which are acknowledged to be the oldest free-standing structures in the world.

On that edge of the town overlooking a splendid view of Ramla Bay, one can find the mythological Calypso Cave, the home of the nymph Calypso mentioned in Homer's Odyssey. Yet other caves are renowned for the fantastic shapes of their stalagmites and stalactites, formed over the ages by the slow filtration of rainwater through the limestone which composes the tableland. Xerri's Grotto and Ninu's Cave are ample examples of such natural marvel.

The village boasts an attractive windmill known as Ta' Kola Windmill, after its last tenant. The present windmill structure was built on 5th September 1786. It is the only windmill in Gozo that has its own original wooden cogwheel machinery in good functioning order. This is due to the last tenant who took prestigious care according to the conditions of the lease that was granted to him by the Order. Intensive restoration was carried out on the Windmill in the early 90's that gave her back its original splendour. Today it is functioning as a museum rendering Ta' Kola Windmill an ideal attraction to hundreds of tourists who visit Xaghra all year round.

A curious museum that one should not miss when visiting Xaghra, is the "Pomskizillious" Museum of Toys, where a display of antique collectors' toys is exhibited.

Bishop Davide Cocco Palmieri established Xaghra as an independent parish on 28th April 1688. The first parish church was the medieval chapel dedicated to St. Anthony the Abbot, still standing today. The beautiful, present-day Parish Basilica is dedicated to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The feast is celebrated every 8th September, locally known as "Il-Festa tal-Vittorja" commemorating the victory of the Maltese under the Knights of St. John over the Turks in the Siege of 1565. The feast of the Nativity of Our Lady has been since then a traditional national holiday.
