    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Dar Rahal is a self-catering holiday home, a little piece of paradise – quiet, secluded, family friendly and walking distance to the centre of Xaghra and all it has to offer including restaurants, shops, historic locations, village square, etc. Our 400yr old farmhouse has been sympathetically converted into a comfortable holiday home retaining many of the original features whilst allowing for easy living.

    You can spend your days lounging by the roof top pool and on the sun terrace, or venture to the many beautiful beaches that Gozo has to offer. In the evenings, you can cook or BBQ at the farmhouse, or head out to savour the tastes, sights and sounds of Gozo.

    How to get there
    Airport: Malta International Airport:: 35.0 km
    Ferry: Mgarr: 5.0 km
    Air Malta , British Airways, Ryanair as well as the big charter airlines which fly from most major UK airports to Malta International Airport during spring and summer.

    To get to the island of Gozo is a drive and a ferry ride from the airport, allow at least 1.5 hours for this.

    We recommend hiring a car to be able to get to Gozo and then take in the sights of the island however we've had good feedback from recent guests who've tried airport taxi transfers and taking buses as a means of getting around so this is an option which should not be discounted if you don't fancy driving. We can provide further details on these options if required.

Great place, farmhouse well equipped, swimming pool great, my 14 year old twin boys and 77 year old mother loved it! Lovely ground floor bedroom and bathroom, my mother felt like she had her own apartment. Have a cup of tea, sit by the kitchen window and watch the travelling shops go by and listen to the village life. Make... more

Dar Rahal was the perfect location for our holiday in Gozo. The house is tucked away in Xaghra but still only a 10 minute walk to the village square and its restaurants. We really enjoyed everything about the house, particularly the rooftop pool and, given that we were travelling with a toddler, really appreciated the children's toys and stair gates.... more

Management response:

Thank-you for your lovely review. We're glad you found the stair gates and kids' toys useful. As parents ourselves we always find such facilities make a world of difference to any stay in a rental property. We hope we can welcome you back to our farmhouse again at some point in the future. more

Once again we fell in love with Gozo and the wonderful people living there. The weather was great, the food is outstanding and Dar Rahal is just a such a beautiful, authentic house to stay in. This time the weather permitted us to make good use of the pool on the roof, and even though we were 7 people altogether... more

Management response:

Thank-you for another great review. We're glad to hear our farmhouse easily accommodated your increased numbers following on from your previous stay as a couple the year before. Hopefully we can welcome you back for third stay in the future. more
