About the Property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 9)

Il-Marhab in Xewkija is a typical farmhouse from the early 17th century. It is located in walking distance to the picturesque pebble bay Mgarr-Ix-Xini. Through the main entrance with stone arcs and tiled, patterned floor you reach an open, sunny square that is surrounded by plants. This leads to a spacious bedroom with en suite bathroom. There are three more double bedrooms on the first floor, a sunny loggia and a terrace with view on the Rotunda church. 9 persons will find sufficient space in this house. On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen with granite worktops, dining table with 8 chairs, fridge, washing machine, gas-/electro-stove, cable TV, telephone, fireplace and the main bathroom. Outside there is a large terrace with stone tiles and tables where you can enjoy your dinner al fresco. The farmhouse fully deserves its 5 stars.

Sun, Sea and History: Il-Marhab farmhouse offers the discerning traveller to make the best of their quality time while on vacation. The farmhouse itself is a place of relaxation with its own superb swimming pool (14 x 8.5 m), huge sun deck area (over 100 m) with sun deck chairs, pool shower, built-in-barbecue and a lovely walled garden with mature fruit trees facing due south for maximum sunshine. The medieval village of Xewkija is halfway between the port of Mgarr and Victoria, the capital, and is within walking distance to all basic amenities including mini market, bank, pharmacy, and the local baker and butcher. For those interested in archaeology one can see the monumental remains of prehistoric sites older than the Pyramids. The island of Gozo (population around 29,000) is 14 km by 7 km and therefore you can easily reach any part of the island in a very short time.

Xewkija is the oldest village in Gozo and has approximately 3000 inhabitants. The impressing Rotunda church has the second highest tower in Europe after the St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome. The small, rocky bay of Mgarr-Ix-Xini, which has been used as a harbour during medieval times, can be reached on foot or by car. Today it opens for spectacular views on the sea and great possibilities for diving and snorkelling. There are many caves to discover.

Other Activities: volleyball, basketball, squash, bowling and valley climbing
