Why Mr. & Mrs. Farrugia chose Xewkija
Arjuza farmhouse is an Architect designed accommodation. A welcoming traditional courtyard set within a loggia type façade fills the interior with natural light and fresh air. This characteristic led to the name of the farmhouse, ‘Arjuza’, that means airy. Entering the house one steps back more than five hundred years in time. A long room built of coursed rubble walls and roofed over by a corbelled stone ceiling referred to as kileb in Maltese, is likely a pre 1530 structure. The room has been expertly converted into a dining room that accommodates up to 14 covers and boasts of several mediaeval elements such as a couple of stone hewn cupboards, a ‘barumbara’ (stone pigeonry) a couple of ‘mrabat’ (stone tie rings) and a ‘Nara’ (a torch holder). Four steps down from the dining room an arched sheep pen has been tastefully transformed into a functional kitchen and a cosy space has been turned into a ‘study room’ where desk facilities complete with cable and wireless internet are provided. A couple of steps up from the ground floor loggia a double corbel roofed room, has been converted into a cosy sitting room. A full shower room complete with sanitary facilities is found at ground floor. Three bedrooms are situated at first floor level. The Sunflower Suite, a main double bedroom, is fitted with antique furniture, has an open balcony and an en-suit bathroom. The loggia corridor segregates the Geranium Suite from the rest of the house. This comprises of a double bedroom with a cot, and a separate room that is fitted with two single beds and a shared shower room. The Red Rose Suite, is the third double bed room complete with an en-suite bathroom and exclusive terraces is at second floor. This bedroom also enjoys a terrace / roof from which one can enjoy unobstructed views of the Citadel and other nice scenery of Gozo. Outside areas comprises of a quaint courtyard ideal for an afternoon tea party, BBQ's and pool relaxation.
