Fully detached bungalow with amazing lagoon overflowing pool & walled garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
ECO Certifiied Magical trullo with private swimming pool (16 x 9.5m)

The fully detached Eco Certified Trullo built in beautiful honey-coloured limestone is unique. This bee-hived shaped Trullo is located in the village of Xewkija, the oldest in Gozo. Set in its own south facing garden with mature olive, cypress and citrus trees, the lagoon overflowing swimming pool 16 x 9.5m) is sure to please.

Inside, the rooms have been tastefully decorated and furnished in restful shades of summer to give a stylish, yet practical interior.

The accommodation consists of 3 BR, one with en suite plus main bathroom. Two bedrooms have an LG air condition/heating system on a pay per use basis. It can sleep 8 persons comfortably. There is a lovely sofa in the round open plan lounge/diner, oak dining table with 6 chairs, a fully equipped kitchen with black granite worktops - this leads onto the splendid patio/sun deck area with pool shower and built-in-barbecue.

Outfitted with everything from iPod dock and WiFi to a washing machine and cable TV, you will enjoy the comforts of home while you explore the ancient prehistoric valley of Mgarr ix-Xini with its perfectly pebbly beach and clear waters.

The pebbly beach of Mgarr ix-Xini is the same bay where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have shot their most recent film, By the Sea.

The village of Xewkija (scheukiia): Xewkija is famous for its church simply known as 'the Rotunda', dedicated to St John the Baptist. Not only does it dominate the village, it dominates the entire island. The village has an eccentrically suburban air for an agricultural community. Men on ancient lilac-coloured Vespas roar noisily through the narrow twisting medieval streets wearing soup-bowl helmets and shot guns slung across their backs; a handful of people too old to work the fields sit beside their bamboo-slatted front doors awaiting the cool of the day, while tourists stare at their cathedral-sized church. The single most impressive feature is the dome, a 45,000-ton structure set on eight columns.

A short walk from the trullo leads down the valley of Mgarr ix-Xini. The swimming in the small fjord at the bottom of the steep single track is clean and suitable for children. Further out the waters are dark, deep and clear against the sheer cliff face offering excellent diving and snorkelling.

Trullo Gozitano is one of just 7 properties awarded ECO certification by Malta Tourism Authority in Gozo. The Eco certification is the national scheme for ensuring the environmental, socioeconomic, and cultural sustainability of tourist accommodation on the Maltese Islands and has been recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council as fully reflecting the GSTC criteria.

Fabulous Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ted's villa for three weeks on our Honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing. Everything is extremely clean and the pool is just heaven. Lovely and big. Ted was really helpful throughout our entire stay. The pool area is very private. The BBQ is brilliant. There are two stores just a couple of minutes from the villa which stock pretty much everything. The Maltese White and rose wine is amazing. A car is really recommended and we hired Ted's car which is a 1991 Honda Civic, manual choke, wind down windows and the most coolest car on the island. It was brilliant. It did not matter where we parked, it was alway cool when we got in it. No need to hire anything posh. This car was ideal. You could park anywhere except for in from of garages and double yellow lines. Rules of the road are simple - take it easy and expect people to pull out in front of you - no worries. Victoria took about 20 minutes to walk to from the Villa. We found the ideal gym - Shape Up run by Anton. €22 each for two weeks plus personal training from Anton - amazing! Our favourite bay was Hondoq which had very cheap amazing wine and simple, wonderful food. I am vegetarian and found plenty of choice. The sea is so warm. Go and hire a boat from Xlendi for half or full day - drive it yourself. It is such fun. Go to Crystal Bay rather than the Blue Lagoon as it is not so touristy and just as amazing. When finished go and have a meal in the Pirates Galley and watch the fish feeding on bread. Best meal ever there. If you want Newspapers, go to book shops or Arkadia shopping centre and you will find them.

We had the. Last amazing Honeymoon and thank you Ted for looking after us. We will be back.

Dianne and Geoff Armstrong.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Great pool and location. Close to good restaurants and shops. The rental car was needed to fully explore the island. Secluded garden and Mr Mizi was very attentive and knowledgeable of the island. We even purchased his book. Ample facilities for the price. The outstanding feature of the villa aside from the fascinating bee hive design was the pool. The whole family spent hours in the pool. A great and memorable holiday.

Belle location avec piscine

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour sur l'île de Gozzo en juillet. La location est tout à fait conforme à la description, la piscine est magnifique. Située au centre de l'île, le logement permet de sillonner l'île en peu de temps: avons profité des plus belles plages du Nord et du Sud, des festivités de Saint Georges à Victoria. Le propriétaire est très disponible et intervient rapidement si besoin. Il avait organisé un transfert aller-retour pour notre famille (5 personnes) de l'aéroport à la location. Nous recommandons ce service mais conseillons de bien verifier auprès du chauffeur tout ce que le prix comprend (ferry aller-retour compris dans le tarif par exemple). Nous recommandons la boulangerie du village: personnel très sympathique.

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in July in Trulo Gozitano. Situated at the end of a road it's a very quite and relaxing place. The swimming pool is spacious and invites for relaxing swimming. The welcome was very cordially. Ted organized not only the airport transfer, but also the rental of a car (which is highly recommended), welcomed us with a food basket and recommended various restaurants all over Gozo, where the food was absolutely delicious. As we are pationate divers he also recommended us the Calypso divers in Marsalforn. It is only 10-15 minutes by car and George and his team were simply wonderful. Beginning from the diving equipment to the dive sights we saw, it was simply fantastic! We truly can recommend to stay in Trulo Gozitano and definitely will come back again!

Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen absoluten Traumurlaub im Trulo Gozitano verbracht. Wer Ruhe und Erholung abseits der Massen sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Ein echtes Truli (wie wir es davor nur aus Süditalien kannten) mit kreisrundem Wohnzimmer und einem großen Pool, das zu Muse-Stunden einlädt. Der Empfang von Ted war absolut herzlich und wann immer wir eine Frage hatten, stand uns Ted mit Rat und Tat zu Seite. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder und können einen Aufenthalt nur rundum empfehlen!
