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 Xagħra
I think that Xaghra is one of the nicest villages on Gozo 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

Fantastic house on a fantastic island ! We were a family of 4, including 2 kids 14 & 12 years old. We really appreciated the pool on the evening, coming back from visiting this wonderful island.
We fell in love with the roof where you can spend hours looking at the stars, lying down in the hammock. Bedrooms were great, as the terrace.
It's easy to find a parking space for your car around the house : on that point, I thank Sonja, the owner, who gave me a nice contact to rent the car. They brought us the car to the house the day we arrived !
House is well located, a few minutes walk from the town center, and short drive to go to the beach or to go to other part of the island.
Sonja, the owner, is a wonderful person, always available on Whatsapp : thanks for all !
To resume, I think we rented more than 20 houses since we travel with our kids and it is the most fantastic one we rented.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review but what pleases me more is that you had an amazing time at my house making memories with your family which you ll cherish forever!
Welcome back any time!
Beautiful property, lovely location. A luxurious home from home.
We recently spent a week at Sonja's gorgeous house. So comfortable, we hardly wanted to go out! Our teenage son particularly appreciated being able to have his own space - afforded by the sheer number of rooms and outdoor areas. Oh, and WiFi of course!
Pool area perfect for relaxing - always a mixture of sun and shade to suit, and the pool itself was clean and the perfect temperature.
Bedrooms lovely - air conditioning a very welcome essential - with en suite shower rooms fully equipped with toiletries.
The village square is a ten minute walk away, with several great restaurants to try. Lots of delicious fish and seafood.
And you can pretty much get anywhere on Gozo in 5-10 minutes by car!
A perfect spot for relaxing and recharging the batteries. Thank you.
I am thrilled you had a relaxing family holiday at my house! Away from all the hustle and bustle but + all the comforts :)))
Welcome back any time! S
nice comfortable villa but little issues didnt get it a 5 star rating
irritating small issues reduce the rating
Fantastic stylish home in a great location
Just got back from a wonderful 7 night stay at Sonja's beautiful home in Xaghra, Gozo.
What a great choice we made! Her place is a stylish and comfortable converted farmhouse, a little like an upmarket boutique hotel but with the touches that actually make it a home which most obviously it is.
When we opened the front door and went in we were hit with the wow factor and after exploring the house further felt immediately at home and took no time to feel totally relaxed.
It has some great areas in which to chill out like the pool area and the upstairs terrace that sits just outside the bedrooms. We were out exploring beautiful Gozo most of the time but when back at home we really enjoyed making use of these areas and took a dip in the pool everyday.
The living room too was nice and comfortable just to relax in sometimes when inside.
The kitchen was great although we only used it for breakfast mostly as we ate out a lot, but it was very well equipped and I imagine you could make some really nice meals in it. It has a breakfast bar type island in the centre which we liked to sit around in the mornings discussing our plans for the day.
The location was pretty much perfect for us too. The island is small and easily navigated in no time at all really. We had a car for the week but there is a great bus service provided and there is a stop just a stones throw from the house. Taxis are also plentiful and cheap.
The main thing with the location though was it's proximity to Xaghra's village square, only about a 5 minute stroll away. We made use of the fantastic little restaurants that are there most evenings and were most lucky to visit the week before their annual festival. There was always something going on in the square and everyone was so happy and friendly.
Sonja was great too even though we never met was a fantastic host and was extremely helpful - she was absolutely brilliant with any correspondence and pretty much replied to any emails in no time at all.
All in all it made for an absolutely wonderful holiday and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Do yourself a favour, stop searching and book now!
We loved Gozo and Sonja's home and promise we will be back soon!
PS I could have carried on with this review and gushed about the home and holiday a lot longer but have ran out of available characters!!!!
A Secret Little Paradise
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.
Beautiful contemporary farmhouse in Gozo
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!
I am thrilled you had a super time and thank you for staying at my home.
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.
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.
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.
A list of recommended restaurants and bars is available in the house.
