Behind that hefty front door you’ll find stone ceiling arches leading you to the sort of reception area/atrium you might expect to find in a traditional Gozitan nobleman’s house. From it, wooden stairs and wrought iron railings lead you to the first floor. 

The kitchen sits (appropriately) in the centre of the ground floor. Its wooden doors and local slate tile work surfaces enhance the rustic feel, while the freestanding island unit provides plenty of space to cook and prep, or simply gather around over a glass of wine and enjoy a good chat.

Elsewhere on the ground floor you’ll find a grand dining area with antique table and chairs; a comfy lounge (with flat screen TV and Wi-Fi) that overlooks the pool; and an en suite bathroom with marble antique finish.

First Floor:

Bedroom 1 is at the top of the stairs. It’s spacious with twin beds and ensuite shower. The solid wooden furniture and original antique tiles add to the classic rustic feel.

Bedroom 2 has a wrought iron double bed. Again, the room is spacious with an antique feel fuelled by oak ceiling beams and feature shelves cut into the stone. There is an en suite shower room.

Bedroom 3 is the master bedroom with the emphasis on ‘master’. A real treat, this room is flooded with light from 2 large arched terrace doors that lead onto a private terrace balcony. It’s so gorgeous up here – with wonderful views of the citadel and surrounding countryside – that you might never want to come down. Inside, the bedroom itself features a solid wooden four poster bed, antique local tiles and an en suite. 


The pool and terrace make for a peaceful, private retreat with some of the most magnificent views on the island. And when you’re not gazing out towards the horizon, you’ll find the sunbeds and outside dining furniture make this the perfect spot to enjoy a BBQ.

Additional information:

All rooms have ceiling fans.

Idyllically situated, Xaghra is a mere 15 minute drive to most localities in Gozo. Victoria is about 4km away. Apart from being in itself a picturesque village, Xaghra is rich in historical heritage with plenty to offer to its visitors. It is encircled by the beautiful bays of Ramla, Ghajn Barrani and Marsalforn. The village’s main square has a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars.

Xaghra is one of the oldest villages in Gozo - one can find the Neolithic temples of Ggantija - acknowledged to be the oldest free-standing structures in the world. At the edge of the village on the other side from the hotel there is Calypso Cave; the home of the nymph Calypso, mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey. Xerri’s Grotto and Ninu’s Cave are renowned for the fantastic shapes of their stalagmites and stalactites.

The village also has an attractive windmill known as Ta’ Kola and a popular toy museum. The hotel is ideally situated for walks in the countryside. The real beauty of Gozo, apart from its stunning seascape and interior, lies in the villages. Here, it seems as if time really does stand still. The locals treasure their peace and the villages are tranquil, proving to be a wonderful respite from the trials and tribulations of everyday life for visitors.

Cheap public transport is available; however car hire is relatively inexpensive and will give wider opportunity for exploring. All roads in Gozo lead to Victoria, also known as Rabat, which is where the fortified citadel sits atop a summit. It is a great place to watch the Islanders go about their day, especially when the main market square, It-Tokk, comes to life.

The town also has a thriving cultural life all its own, with some surprising attractions ranging from opera to horse races in the main street on festa day.

Gozo is about a 1.5 hour transfer from Malta International Airport by road, including the 25 minute ferry crossing from Malta to Gozo.
