About the property

Farmhouse in Xaghra, Gozo, Malta - 5 Min Drive from Ramla Bay

White Pampas has been converted into a beautiful holiday home by English owners. The house retains many original features and has been beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. As you step through the front door you immediately enter the pretty courtyard with swimming pool. There is a large patio with six sun loungers and also a patio table and chairs. The courtyard is well lit and houses a built in BBQ - perfect for alfresco dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place you have, we had a wonderful time in the farmhouse, it met all our needs. As divers we have a lot of kit and it was great to have plenty of room to dry it out. It should be advertised as diver friendly as it is very hard to find suitable accomodation. Pete Hodkin Sept 12 Back again!!!!

I just wanted to say what a great time we had at your farmhouse a couple of weeks ago. Its a great place to stay and we really loved the location and the house itself. We have just got back after spending the second week in Malta and now much prefer Gozo to Malta. John Bryant and family Nottingham July 10.

The farmhouse is a home away from home, great location, very clean and well kept, kitchen is well kept and equipped for all the needs of a large family. We thought the complimentary needs in the fridge were not expected but a really nice thought. Highly recommended we will be back again. Thank you Maria for a very pleasant stay.

Relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to this lovely cosy farmhouse. It has been 8 years since we were last here and now a family of five. The kids would have happily spent everyday at the house playing in the pool! The property is well maintained and very clean and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely Maria. Xaghra is a lovely village and the centre is a 10 min walk from the house with a good choice of restaurants. Not sure why a reviewer below States Victoria is a 10 min walk - it's a good 10 mins by car so this must be a typo. I'd definitely recommend you hire a car and explore the rest of the island. We look forward to our next visit.

Enjoyable holiday

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the farmhouse for 2 weeks in May and had a lovely time. House was very clean and the courtyard was well equipped with sunbeds and a BBQ.. Although the pool is small it is adequate to cool down in. We had a small problem with hot water but Maria the housekeeper had it fixed within a couple of hours. Maria was brilliant and arranged our taxi transfers from and back to the airport. We were provided with lots of towels and Maria's lovely daughter came in and changed the bed linen etc at the weekend. We did have a local dog barking some nights but otherwise a great location.

The town is only a 10 minute walk and there are plenty of places to eat glorious food inexpensively. The Church in Xaghra is absolutely beautiful don't miss it. We walked miles in Gozo hopping on & off buses on one day passes for 1.5 euro. Very hilly so not for the fainthearted. Everyone is very friendly on Gozo so if you like walking and visiting beautiful churches & isolated beaches then this is the place for you. One of our party also went diving off the island . Unfortunately we explored Gozo so much we didn't get to Malta so will need to come back again!

Beautiful farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a wonderfully relaxing stay in this beautiful farmhouse. The facilities were perfect (beautiful private swimming pool, bbq, sunbeds etc) and the location is fantastic. It is situated 8 minutes by foot from Xaghra (where there are several lovely restaurants and a really fun late-night bar called Rubbles where the service is both extremely friendly and efficient) and ten minutes by foot from the capital Victoria. You can take a bus to almost anywhere on the island from Victoria (for only 1.5 Euros for a day pass) and everywhere is really close (maximum about 20 minutes).

We went at the end of September to the beginning of October and the weather was lovely (about 28 degrees each day) and there weren't many tourists but lots of people out and about so it was lively whilst being relaxing.

Graham (the owner of the villa) was extremely attentive before we arrived (he recommended a very good taxi service on Malta: Christina Sammut who was very reasonable and reliable as well as organising for us to be collected from Xaghra to take us to the villa free of charge).

Overall, I would highly recommend this villa as you will have a fantastic experience.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here, as a family of five we had a relaxing week on the island of Gozo, in our opinion much nicer than Malta.

The accomodation is great, suited our needs, ok there is no dishwasher or washing machine, but hey you are on holiday, so you eat out a lot and you've only got to wash shorts and tee shirts.

Despite the 35 deg heat, we didnt need the air con, just opened the windows and let the breeze waft through.

The pool is big enough to swim around in and cool off, you're not going to swim miles in it, although the children tried to, and some of it gets shaded from about mid day onwards which is also good to protect the children. However there is plenty of sun to be had all day around the pool. The centre (about a kilometer away) has a number of good restaurants and an HSBC cash point.

Overall a great place to stay, Maria is very friendly and helpful and i'd have no problem recommend ing anyone to stay here.
