Xaghra Farmhouse

Gozo, near Malta

A huge rustic townhouse in the charismatic small Gozitan town of Xaghra; ideal for families or friends and excellent value (sleeps 6-8)

For a small island, only 14km in length and 7km at its widest point, Gozo packs in an astounding amount of charm. It’s an otherworldly landscape of terraced, curious little hills, fantastical seacliffs and red-sand beaches lapped by the blindingly blue Mediterranean sea. And Xaghra is one of the island’s prettiest and most intriguing towns - small enough to feel like a village, but large enough to be interesting.

Xaghra Farmhouse is only a short walk from the main square, situated on a narrow little street. It’s built out of sandy-coloured limestone, a great renovated house that’s about 400 years old; it was formerly a working farmhouse. Walk in and it’s the sense of space that hits you first of all, with a big entrance hall and large kitchen leading through to the spacious sitting room, with its huge fireplace. Vast arched French doors give onto the pool terrace, where you'll find loungers and an alfresco dining table. It’s not fancy but it's a great place for a holiday with a group of friends or family.

Highs

  • A great location in picturesque Xaghra and close to Gozo’s best beaches and the mystical Ggantija Temples
  • Fantastic value for money
  • Lots of space to spread out; 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin), plus a sofabed and 4 bathrooms
  • A very well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker and BBQ; wonderful fresh ingredients are on sale in town, and there are great local restaurants if you want a night off
  • A local concierge will meet you and is a phone call away if you need any help

Lows

  • In places it feels lacking in furnishings
  • Bathrooms are functional rather than luxurious
  • Not loads of outdoor space
  • Minimum 7-night rental (though they can occasionally be flexible on this)

Simple but characterful townhouse...
