    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11
    This property offers both a swimming pool/ garden area with a large stone barbecue, as well as a sun terrace and charming internal courtyard. Fans are available in each bedroom although rooms are naturally cool due to metre thick walls and high ceilings. Ta' Xmun Farmhouse is ideally laid out for family groups, large or small. This larger than average property also offers ample secret seating areas where one can escape to read or draw in its charming and tranquil surroundings. As the owners use this farmhouse as their own holiday residence and they have therefore ensured that it lacks for nothing - truly a home away from home.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Ta'Xmun Farmhouse is a 250year old property purchased around 11 years ago by its present owners. It sleeps up to 10 adults and 2 infants. When it was restored, the layout and work carried out was kept as faithful to the original as possible. It has high ceilings and metre thick walls.

From the minute we enquired about the farmhouse availability, the owner could not have been more helpful.
The Farmhouse was exactly as described, but the photos do not do the sheer enormity and beauty of this stunningly restored building justice. Upon arrival there was a supply of coffee, tea, sugar, eggs, bacon, butter and various other supplies.
Zebbug village itself is exceptionally beautiful and quiet but do keep in mind this is not the village for you if you're looking for an exciting nightlife. It was exactly what we were looking for however, a peaceful village, with stunning views, a shop which opens 09:00-12:00 and 17:00-19:00 Monday to Saturday, 2 pizzerias and a never-ending number of vendors selling fresh fish, fruit, veg, bread and virtually everything you'd ever need.
The house itself is massive with 4 large bedrooms, a beautiful open plan living / kitchen / dining area and several terraces and courtyards. There is always somewhere you can hide from the...

Dear Stuart and family, It was a pleasure to meet you and have you all stay at Ta Xmun Farmhouse. I look back on our meeting fondly especially knowing that your little ones enjoyed the pool so much. Seeing their beautiful, happy and proud faces while showing me their swimming 'medals' hanging round their necks is something I shall treasure... more

We had a great stay at Ta Xmun. Zebbug is a small, quiet town but convenient to everything on Gozo. The house is well furnished and was supplied with everything we needed. There was a nice welcoming package waiting for us with basic supplies until we could go shopping. Victoria (Rabat) is a short drive and I recommend doing most grocery shopping there (for price and variety) although the vendors who come into town have just about anything you could possibly need so the trip is not essential.

Restaurants are close by in Marsalforn or Qbajjar or try Francesco's pizza right on the square by the church. It isn't fancy but it was a short walk, a great value and tasty. Get there early if you want to sit outside and watch the sunset. It seems to be quite popular at sundown.

We put the pool to good use swimming every day.

Although there is no wi-fi in the house the connection was good sitting in the square outside of Francesco's pizza.

All-in-all a very...
