Xlendi apartment description

We named our property “Azure Escapes” for a good reason as it really is a place to kick back, unwind and escape everyday life for a while. Originally a girls school, the building, built from the local creamy limestone, has been cleverly converted into bright and spacious apartments in the seafront village of Xlendi, while our road “Ta’Karolina” is named after a convent of nuns who used to bathe in the nearby bay.

We offer good quality self catering accommodation in an ideal location, being set back against the commanding cliffs that surround Xlendi Bay, in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet only a two minute walk to the beach and village. Xlendi is undeniably very pretty with the village being centred around the horseshoe shaped bay that is superb for snorkelling, swimming and diving with its own natural reef. The beach is ideal for children as it gently slopes down to the water with several restaurants that overlook it, meaning you can relax while the children play. The bay is especially suited for those wishing to try diving as you can swim out from the edge and there is plenty to see even up to the 10 metre trial dive limit. There are plentiful restaurants within a few minutes walk as well as a superb gelateria while a very friendly fruit and vegetable man and van visits every week day.

With tastefully decorated bedrooms, large open plan living area with balcony overlooking the village and a kitchen equipped with fridge freezer, halogen hob, coffee maker etc together with numerous guide books and local information, our apartment offers you a peaceful retreat whatever time of year you choose to visit.

Airport transfers and car rental can be arranged. All bookings include free WIFI, welcome grocery pack, linen and indoor towels, maid service and local assistance.

                                Just a note to let you know we had a super week on Gozo. It was a lovely time of year, the temperature was just right. The transfers ran like clockwork - thank you for organising them. I'm so glad we spotted your apartment on the Farnham Ramblers website. The flat was ideal, it had everything we needed and was an excellent base. We loved Xlendi - it was always a pleasure to return there at the end of the day. Sandra McGuire - May 2007 We had a super holiday and the flat, Xlendi, Gozo and the weather were perfect. We were most impressed with the transfer arrangements which allowed the holiday to pass without a hitch. Thank you for letting us share your home for 2 weeks. Nigel and Alison McKee - July 2007 We had a wonderful time in Gozo, despite the sun burn! The apartment was great, it couldn't have been much closer to the sea. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves, they spent most of their time snorkel ling. I am sure we will visit again. Wendy Gilmour & family

                                Elaine’s apartment was exactly as described on the website and as shown in the photos. It’s a good size for holiday accommodation and provides an ideal base for anyone staying in Xlendi as it’s just a minute’s walk from the sea front. The rooms are spacious and clean and the kitchen is equipped to cater for holiday style catering requirements. The balcony faces inland, rather than the sea, and catches the morning sun through until just before noon (in March). As other reviewers have mentioned and I can testify there is a flock of geese, together with a cockerel residing about 25 metres away, but the bedrooms are situated on the inside/far side of the apartment, so whilst these are still audible at times the inevitable dawn chorus is reduced to acceptable levels. Elaine provided lots of detailed information and happily answered all of our pre holiday queries which was very useful. We went in late March, so pretty much had the entire block, if not the street, to ourselves. Happy to recommend.

                                We did a lot of searching for a good value apartment in Gozo, but it was surprise to discover that this huge 3rd floor apartment was also in by far the the most interesting village in Gozo. As well as being visually dramatic and a great place for strolling/reading/watching the sunset and setting out on hikes, Xlendi is also the only place in Gozo – in early April, anyway – that has any semblance of nightlife. From six or seven restaurants there was always at least one open, with Ta' Karolina particularly brilliant. Still a quiet village though. The town is down a steep (though recently tarmaced) road that does separate it from the rest of Gozo, principally because we couldn't find a bus service. So a car is probably worth having, though probably less so here because of all the restaurants; you wouldn't have to leave save for the lack of a grocery store. Initially we were a bit disappointed that the apartment didn't overlook the sea, and soon also feared the nearby birds (peacocks, cockerels, geese ...) would keep us awake, though neither was an issue. Note that the spacious balcony is only in sunshine in the morning, until about midday – so lazy mornings and busy afternoons is the best way to make best use of the apartment. In all other respects the property was excellent – huge and great value, with a large bathroom and a useful pack of groceries when we arrived.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with young children, romantic getaway.

                                The apartment is beautiful, the photos do not do it justice! It is so clean, spacious and the balcony provides a relaxing place to sit and read with gorgeous views. The apartment has been well thought out with everything you need, and lots of holiday information about Gozo. We parked outside the apartment block with no trouble and the sea is just around the corner. Xlendi is a really pretty,peaceful bay with stunning views and walks, if it isn't too hot, (we come from Cornwall and it is similar to look at but with constant sunshine!) We stayed mid July and it was really hot,the daily swims in the clear blue sea were divine. If you have a family there are various cheap inflatable sea toys/snorkels/lilos for sale as the sea is safe for children. The food in Xlendi restaurants is amazing the best we have ever eaten! Sitting outside the restaurant on a hot evening by the sea with all the candles twinkling is just magical! Read the visitors book for recommendations on the best places to eat and make sure you try the ice cream it is delicious! We popped into Victoria for food shopping supplies and went to The Duke supermarket which is really good and similar to home. We did the boat trip to Comino and Blue Lagoon which was worth seeing, although go later in the day as it is very busy. We booked at Xlendi and had free transport to the harbour which made it a hassle free trip. We really enjoyed our holiday in Xlendi and would recommend this apartment to anyone who wanted a relaxing break with lots of sun, swimming and good food!

                                We made the right choice with this apartment, it was very clean and bright and close to the sea. The restaurants in the village are all really good value and the service was always faultless and cheerful. We spent many hours just people watching. We didn't hire a car but you don't need it with the local buses. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who visits Xlendi and will be going back. There is a vistors book in the apartment, which has some good tips but don't believe everything you read and try things out for yourself.

                                It was lovely to spend our first week of the honeymoon in the apartment. The weather was just perfect (mid March, warm and sunny) and it was lovely that it was off peak so it was nice and quiet. There are lovely restaurants (right by the water front) literally about 3 minutes away from the apartment, so it was very handy. Victoria was only 10 minutes bus ride away (or a leisurely 45 minutes) where there are more amentities. The apartment was big and the airport transfer was good. One big plus is that the cleaner certainly does a great job as the apartment was spotless. There is a little book in the apartment in which previous guests write little notes/tips...there were some useful points worth taking a look. All in all, great.

                                We really enjoyed our stay in Xlendi. The appartment was very well placed. Peaceful and safe but only a minute away from all the restaurants and the sea. Temperature was fantastic and we appreciated the fans. The stairs were good exercise and the appartment was very clean and spacious. We felt at home here and could easily have stayed longer. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We were pleased to have a car for getting around the island but the buses seemed very popular and cheap. So much to see on this island that we didn't get round it all yet. However we found it very tempting to just stay in Xlendi and enjoy the scenery, the snorkelling and the fantastic sea temperature!! Highly recommended.

                                The apartment does correspond to the description. Customer service was actually not needed, as we found the apartment fully equipped and no inconvenience occured. The area is quiet,l no traffic at all in the cul-de-sac. Parking facilities are within a very short distance. All restaurants in the area are offerinf good food and service at fair prices. Price of drinks is very low compared to other mediterranean islands. Xlendi is a very nice place, the bay is unique. The only drawback? I was using crutches at the time and there is no elevator, but It was good to make exercise! Emanuele and family - Aug 09

                                Thank you so much for your home; it was a real treat to have a place to be able to cook in and not be jammed into a hotel room- a nice change. Location was key. It couldn't be any better in this small, beautiful village. The flat was clean and spacious with plenty of warm blankets and space heaters for December weather. There are many outdoor activities nearby if you are adventurous (great walking) or you can just lay on the couch and read. The only tip would be to bring some groceries from Malta or another town in Gozo if you are there in the winter as the local market is closed. There was a basic starter packet of food which helps. Azure escapes is less expensive than other hotels in Xlendi, even during the low season. Overall, I would certainly go back or send friends and family there, even my parents who are in their mid 60's. Families with children would find it spacious enough for a family of four. Azure Escape is highly recommended.

                                In October 2010 we spent ten nights in beautiful Xlendi. It was very relaxing, the weather was nice beside two days with heavy rain - which was an experience as well. Xlendi is the nicest little spot on Gozo, and we really enjoyed it - especially the food in the restaurant "Ta Karolina". One thing that has to be mentioned - next-door-neighbours to this well-furnished appartment are chicken, duck and goose - so even at night you had the feeling of really being in the countryside. We didn't have any earplugs with us, so it took a while to get used to it. The appartment itself is nice and you have everything you need for a relaxing holiday. There is no TV program, but the possibility of watching DVDs. We will definitely come back to Xlendi.

                                Recommended for: Tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2003

                              About the owner: As my husbands family still live in Malta, we have been regular visitors to the islands since I lured him away from the sunshine to live in the UK many years ago. He claims he is still waiting for summer to arrive! Needing a bolthole from the hecticness that comes with being part of a large and noisy Mediterranean family, we bought our first property in Xlendi in 2003. It's only when several friends and colleagues began asking if they could visit that we thought maybe renting was the way to go. The overwhelming interest took us by surprise, so we felt more confident in buying our second property in 2007 this time with a pool because us Brits do love to swim in a pool rather than the sea! Desperately not wanting to fall into the pot of cliches, but both places truly are magical, charming and soooo relaxing.

                              Why the Owner Chose Xlendi:
                              I used to live in Malta and Xlendi was the first place I visited in Gozo. I just love the location and the friendly village feel to it, even in the height of summer. The shopkeepers have always got a smile and time to chat. It's a great place for a morning swim then you can relax while having your post workout cappucino on the waterfront or equally a great place to sit in the evening with a drink while the harbour lights sparkle on the water. There is a great choice of restaurants that defy the size of the village and the best gelateria by far on the island. If I sound like a walking gastronomic advert, well it can't be helped really and you will see what I mean once you have been there. It's a pretty well connected village by Gozitan standards with a regular bus service running from early morning until late at night, and the nearest bus stop is just a couple of minutes from the apartment.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              Our apartment is in a quiet residential cul-de-sac set back against the cliffs so there is no traffic passing in front of us or behind for that matter! It is a large apartment and being third floor it looks out over the rooftops of the village, rather than at a brick wall, so it is bright and airy too. There are very few apartments in the flat village area of Xlendi, so our location is pretty special as you can enjoy the amenities yet still be in a quiet location. The apartment is very spacious and individually furnished, with beautiful views over the village. It makes me smile .... and I hope it does you too ...
