About the Owner
We live in Devon, having just moved from Oxfordshire, and have owned a property in Gozo for the last 30 years. We have been letting the house in Gozo during the summer months since the swimming pool was installed fourteen years ago.

This was our first visit to the Maltese Islands and our expectations of having a great time were well and truly exceeded. We loved Malta (we spent a couple of days there) but loved Gozo even more. The vagaries of the road system (we never got anywhere at the first attempt), the great beaches and coves, sea kayaking, the friendly islanders and watching the world go by sitting in one of the many restaurants in the square at Xaghra made it a great holiday but the farmhouse made it excellent. The view from the balcony was stunning whether early in the morning or last thing as the sun set - we ate outside beside for the pool for just about every meal. The farmhouse was perfectly situated for walking into the square or driving down to the local coves or visiting any other part of the island. It was well equipped and very spacious which was great for our 4 teenagers +. We loved having three bathrooms and plenty of space for drying our towels and swimming costumes after a day on the beach. The 'grown-ups' really appreciated having our rooms and ensuites away from the youngsters! We will definitely return!
Activity and Interests
The property overlooks the beautiful Ramla valley and the beach here is just 5 mins away by car. The island has numerous small sandy coves and rocky inlets which are ideal for snorkeling.
Car hire is recommended. Malta International Airport is 40 mins away from the Gozo ferry terminal on Malta.
The farmhouse lies on the edge of the village of Xaghra and is five minutes walk from a well stocked minimarket. The island is only 9 miles by 4 miles so travel times are short.
There are a wide range of restaurants, bars, and shops both locally in Xaghra and the rest of the island. Visitors to the house leave notes of their own recommendations and experiences which provides a useful resource for up to date information.
