Beautiful house. So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 23/08/17 for 9 days of glorious time with family. The house is wonderful and traditional but also has the trademark Gozitian quirkiness in layout.

Can't praise the outside space enough really, lovely sized pool that you can swim in, lots of sunbed space all around and you never feel squashed together. Lovely shaded dining table area around the side of the house which was my favourite area. We sat round here most afternoons after catching the sun all day at the pool. The architecture of the house is wonderful and it stands so well .

Only a 7 minute walk to the village square which is a bonus. Always lots happening on the square in August with the celebration of santa Maria.

Overall no complaints about this property and communication with Jean Christophe the owner and Joseph who looks after you when you get here were very good.

Thanks to you all from the Birch family from Mansfield, England.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful authentic Maltese house. We stayed in master bedroom very clean and spacious . Bed comfortable! We liked the big doors that opened onto small balconies so we enjoyed the fresh air while sleeping. Living room couches very comfortable and the kitchen was a wow factor . It was the original about 300 years.

The outside area with pool, lounge chairs was great for relaxing and the charcoal grill was a plus! We will definitely stay there again !!

Communication was excellent with owner, Jean Christophe. Also, Joseph the caretaker was there when needed. Thank you Jean Christophe for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Schönes Anwesen mit einem traumhaften Innenhof mit Pool

  • 3 of 5

Großes, renoviertes ehemaliges Schulhaus. Toller Innenhof mit mehreren Sitzecken von schattig über teils sonnig bis Sonnenplatz mit Liegen. Sehr schöner Pool. 3 Schlafzimmer, wovon 2 eher funktional sind. Lage in Xaghra praktisch zentrumsnah. Alle Lokale und insbesondere der schöne Hauptplatz fußläufig zu erreichen. Abstriche aufrgund von teilweise inakzeptabelen Matratzen , die ihre Zeit lange hinter sich haben. Küche gut ausgestattet. Einige Geräte sollten einmal gecheckt werden (Wasserkocher wirft die Sicherung heraus, Gasherd hat zum Teil nur einen halben Flammenkranz). Sonst empfehlenswert. Für Fußballfans oder andere TV-Gucker gibt es leider kein TV.

Bel endroit, bien situé

  • 4 of 5

Très belle demeure, disposant de l'ensemble des équipements nécessaires à une famille. A proximité de la place centrale du Xaghra. Le propriétaire prend soin de ses occupants en fournissant les conseils utiles et en assurant l'accueil.
