Old renovated farmhouse that is also my second home so not just another rental farmhouse located near Xaghra village with a private 19 x 11 foot pool, first floor al fresco dining and roof terrace with sea views. Has plenty of authentic old features set in a boutique style inspired interior. Near the famous sandy Ramla beach and a very short walking distance from all amenities and a quaint village square with restaurants and bars. Wifi and washing machine available on request.

About Sonja Mohlich

I am a freelance fashion stylist originally from Belgium but now living and working in Dublin, Ireland. I fell in love with Gozo - and in particular Xaghra - about 10 years ago. I love the peacefulness and the surrounding of the sea. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs if you need some action!

Sonja Mohlich purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Sonja Mohlich chose Island of Gozo

I think that Xaghra is one of the nicest villages with the nicest square that has plenty of restaurants and bars just a stroll away from the house.

Equally, the house offers tranquility enabling guests to relax in very comfortable surroundings as well as relax beside or in the lovely private gorgeous pool.

What makes this farmhouse unique

While its an old farmhouse, it features the traditional arches on the inside as well as the colourful original Maltese tiles. While the stones are old it keeps the house very cool even when it gets hot outside making it extremely comfortable during the Summer.

The specifically picked colourful and tasteful furniture makes it both modern looking but also making you feel at home!

Why not looking at the sunset from the roof top with a glass of bubbly in your hand....bliss!

A Secret Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This amazing revamped old farmhouse, at walking distance of the centre of Xaghra, might go unnoticed at first sight. But when entering the house ... private pool with a terrace, a terrace on the roof and a terrace on the 1st floor! The character of the house is combined with contemporary touches of interior design. Plenty of space for unwinding, wining & dining. Very suitable for a relaxed holiday. And if you want to go for some trips (like Ramla Bay, Xlendi, Victoria, Marsalforn, ...): the house is near bus stops or a hired car brings you anywhere on the island within 10 to 20 minutes. And Xaghra's cosy little centre, with restaurants, bars, ... A perfect holiday hideway.

Perfect getaway at anytime of the year.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a hidden gem, having never been to Gozo before I was curious to see what it had to offer and I wasn’t disappointed.

The accommodation is wonderful, a modern take but compliments the traditional Maltase look the owners have a great eye. The rooms are very spacious, Wifi and the house has its own private pool.

This beautiful farmhouse is located in the heart of Xaghra which is handy for shops, coffee shops, restaurants etc. It is also conveniently located to beach such as Ramla Bay if you fancy topping up the tan in addition to the main city of Victoria if you would like to do some shopping or visit the amazing Citadel. This island is full of historical locations

I was there in mid June of last year so got a feel for the place in the sun which was fantastic but returned earlier this year when the temperature was still very pleasant and even though it would have been off season there was still plenty to do, place to explore.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Beautiful contemporary farmhouse in Gozo

  • 5 of 5

Had a super time with my family enjoying the pool and relaxing reading my book on the terrace with a glass of wine.

We didn't always feel like cooking dinner and the picturesque Xaghra square which has plenty of restaurants and bars is only a 5/10 min walk away. Would love to come back staying 2 weeks instead of 1!

Lovely relaxing holiday on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay on Gozo. The farmhouse is fabulous and a lovely place to stay. It was very clean and even bigger than it looked in the photos. It is really close to the square in Xaghra and we had some great meals out - we found all of the restaurants on the square very good but our favourite was Latini. Tal Furnar which is just along the road from the farmhouse was also really good, serving traditional maltese food and their own wine - Tony and his wife were very welcoming. The farmhouse is also near to Ramla beach which is lovely. All in all, a great location.

Sonja was very helpful before our stay with good advice on arranging a pick up from the airport which all went very smoothly and Frances met us on arrival at the house to show us how everything worked.

We would love to go back and would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Chloe & Pete were fantastic guests to have at my house in Gozo! They were really friendly and communicative before their arrival making it easier for me to prepare the house before their arrival and to recommend transfers and car rental to make their stay comfortable! Highly recommend them as guests!

I think that Xaghra is one of the nicest villages with the nicest square that has plenty of restaurants and bars just a stroll away from the house.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

A 2 minute drive from the renowned sandy Ramla beach which is great for sunbathing as well as for snorkeling, surfing and any other water activities.

Travel:

Its recommended to pre-book a taxi for your pick up from the airport to go to the ferry and brought to the house. Alternatively, take the shuttle bus and walk to the ferry and use a taxi by your arrival in Mgarr (Gozo) harbour.

Distances:

2 minute walk from a local shop for all your essentials and a 5 min walk from Xaghra main square which has a great restaurant and bar called Dvenue as well as coffeeshops and a pub. 10 minute drive from the capital Victoria where is the citadel and plenty of shops and market stalls.

Further Details:

A list of recommended restaurants and bars is available in the house.
