                              Why not spent your holiday in a converted 150 yr. old farmhouse in the mid of the Mediterranean Sea on the sunny, quiet and picturesque island of Gozo with its more than 3000 yr. of history?

                              Farmhouse Arzella ('Shell') is a beautifully converted 150-year-old farmhouse with a spacious garden at the border of the picturesque and quiet town of Xaghra (pronounce: shara).

                              Hot off the press : GOZO HAS WON THE 2014 TRIPADVISOR ISLAND AWARD FOR BEING: 3RD BEST ISLAND IN EUROPE !!

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2003

                              About the owner: Hi , I am Dutch by nationality and married since 1982 to a Maltese lady. My profession has made us live for the last 25 + years in 8 different countries around the world and we recently decided to settle down in Portugal .

                              Why the Owner Chose Xaghra:
                              Considering our strong family ties with Malta we always wanted to purchase some property on the sister island of Gozo. Why Gozo ? because it is much quieter and more intimate than Malta, also greener throughout the year with lovely beaches close by.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                              We purchased this property at the time and had it converted because we loved the location being on the outskirts of Xaghra ,with green areas behind,the possibility to have a nice garden, quietness but nevertheless still with all amenities of Xaghra within walking distance (10-15 mins)
