Xewkija bungalow description

A true haven offering guests an attractive outdoor swimming pool and walled garden. This is complemented with a spacious terrace and sun deck area with barbecue under the shade of a natural bamboo trellis ensuring guests enjoy this unique, fully detached trullo featuring new furniture and fittings. It is reached from the village of Xewkija by a small track and a private driveway.
There are two spacious double bedrooms, one with en suite. Both bedrooms have air condition/heating system (Mitsui and LG) on pay per use basis; moreover, there is an extra single bed in each bedroom, plus the main bathroom. It can accommodate up to six (6) persons comfortably. The fabulous open plan sitting/dining space gives the trullo an unusually intimate feel, that only deepens when it is looked at from inside as it shape is constantly changing.
The fully equipped oak kitchen comes with a Smeg cooker (hob & oven), Smeg refrigerator, LG washing machine (8 kilos), cable TV, free WiFi + Lavazza espresso/capuccino machine. There are four sun loungers to relax and unwind by the superb pool.


Mightily Impressive: The Rotunda church has the second highest dome, internally, in Europe (after St Peter's in Rome), is 6 m taller than St Paul's in London and can accommodate nearly three times the village's population. The villagers wanted such a church and it was constructed and paid for entirely by local volunteer labour and donations.
The fanatical dedication and skill of the stone masons is remarkable. Seen from within, the 16 clear -glass windows of the dome and 16 smaller windows in the lantern illuminate the milky limestone, invoking more space than actually exists. If you stand at a distance, the fields opposite Ta' Lambert at sunset, the dome presents a striking silhouette as the orange light powers through it.
The interior is restrained and simple in its execution. Part of the rich interior of the old church has been dismantled like Lego and rebuilt stone by stone in what is called the Musuem of Sculpture to the left of the Carrara marble main altar.

Unique Trullo and the power of design: The harmony and intriguing energy of this architectural trullo lends its power of design with the massive stone jutting out is a masterpiece and testament to the skill of the local stone masons. The endlessly shifting surfaces convey the infinite variety of the hand-crafted ethos of an earlier era, the cultivation of a sense that something has been shaped by a human hand, providing angled views of the superb pool ( 8 x 7m) to celebrate the joy that can come out of creative freedom, and by extension, to reassert the individual's place within a larger dimension.

                      Car: Recommended

                      The village of Xewkija (Scheukiia) is famous for its church simply known as 'the Rotunda', dedicated to St John the Baptist. Not only does it dominate the village, it dominates the entire island. The village has an eccentrically suburban air for an agricultural community.Men on ancient lilac-coloured Vespas roar noisily through the narrow twisting medieval streets wearing soup-bowl helmets and shot guns slung across their backs; a handful of people too old to work the fields sit beside their bamboo-slatted front doors awaiting the cool of the day, while tourists gawp at their cathedral-sized church.

                      The single most impressive feature is the dome, a 45,000-ton structure set on eight columns. A short walk from the trullo leads down the valley of Mgarr ix-Xini.The road is not for the drunk or faint-hearted. The swimming in the small fjord is clean and suitable for children. Further out the waters are dark, deep and clear against the sheer cliff face, offering good diving and snorkelling.
