Property description

This 300 year old, converted farmhouse is a charming house of character located in the quiet village of Zebbug, Gozo. It offers relaxed living in a tiny hilltop village just about 1 km away from the Mediterranean. This property offers both a swimming pool/ garden area with a large stone barbecue, as well as a sun terrace and charming internal courtyard. Fans are available in each bedroom although rooms are naturally cool due to metre thick walls and high ceilings. The owners use this as their own holiday residence and have therefore ensured that it lacks for nothing - truly a home away from home.

PAINTING HOLIDAYS - contact the owner - who runs art painting workshops during the winter/spring months - for groups up to 8 persons.

WATERSPORTS: All types of watersports are offered by centres at the nearby (10 minute drive) resort of Marsalforn, including scuba - diving, waterskiing.

S P E C I A L O F F E R S: During the months of Spring/Early Summer and Autumn/Winter we are offering SPECIAL RATES

Ta'Xmun Farmhouse is a 150year old property purchased around 15 years ago by its present owners. It sleeps up to 10 adults and 2 infants. When it was restored, the layout and work carried out was kept as faithful to the original as possible. It has high ceilings and metre thick walls. Arches, loggias, stone floors, and patterned tiles which are all original keeping the atmosphere relaxed and romantic. On the ground floor there is the split level, open plan, sitting/dining/kitchen area. Both lead either to the garden and courtyard and to the downstairs bedrooms. There is also the internal spiral staircase which leads to the the first floor bedrooms.
The main bedroom leads to the garden/pool area and the double single bedroom leads on to a closed loggia with a large arched door on to the courtyard.

5 STAR RATING *****
The farmhouse is a well kept secret, behind blue doors on the road through Zebbug. As soon as you step through the doors you are met with a beautiful, tranquil courtyard, filled with plants and light. Then through the large kitchen, fully equipped with everything you will need, into the outdoor courtyard with the lovely swimming pool, plenty of sun loungers, an outside BBQ and plenty of sun and shade. Everything was beautifully kept, a real home rather than just a holiday let. The bedrooms are large, airy, with plenty of storage space. Each one leads on to a balcony, terrace or courtyard. Plenty of little outdoor and indoor spaces to hide away with a good book! There were seven of us staying, including four children, and the farmhouse never felt cramped as there is so much indoor and outdoor space. A real delight. We loved exploring Gozo, the capital Victoria with it's winding lanes and the beaches, especially at Xlendi with it's diving ledge. The pizza restaurant in Zebbug has the most amazing views over the valley and is great value for money. Avoid the 'Blue Lagoon' unless you want to do an impression of a seagull in an overcrowded colony, clinging to a rocky ledge! We would highly recommend this property and will be returning next year.

Car: Recommended

The old hilltop town of Zebbug, Gozo, is located in the northern part of the island. It is set on a peninsular ridge with agricultural land and valleys on either side and the sea at the northern edge.

The area has significant views of surrounding landscape right up to the capital city of Victoria. The capital city has plenty of well stocked supermarkets and also boosts a daily outdoor market. The town of Zebbug is situated close to seaside village of Marsalforn, which is ideal for evening dinning and after dinner strolls by the sea.

Other Activities: painting, photography, walking, sight-seeing and eating out by the sea

Why the Owner Chose Gharb:
This property is unique in character in having preserved all its authentic and original features. If you crave some old world charm and a nostalgic atmosphere you can certainly find it at Ta Xmun Farmhouse - In fact it has been the inspiration for many artists, particularly painters - including Lucy Willis, who visited in 2011. If you'd love to experience some artistic inspiration in comfortable stylish surroundings this is the place for you and your group.
