About the neighbourhood
Supermarket and restaurants very close by. On bus route. Many historical sites on the island. The busy night-life on Malta is a short ferry away.
Getting around
There is a regular bus service 50 yards away on the main road.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Malta International: 25.0 km
Ferry: Mgarr: 6.0 km
Many airlines fly to Malta International Airport. From there you can either
a) organise a transfer. A number of companies do this. They will meet you at the airport and take you to the property. e.g. Gozoway (tel 0035621564461).
b) hire a car. If you do this you need to drive to the most northerly part of the island (Cirkewwa, 20 kms away, well signposted) and catch a ferry across to Gozo (takes 25 minutes). There are ferries every 45 minutes (see Gozo channel website for times). The ferry will take you to Mgarr and then drive from there to Gharb (7 kms) on a straight road. On entering the village there is a fork in the road, take the left (towards San Lawrenz) and the farmhouse is 50 yards in the culdesac on the right (red door, il Hoxna).
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 2.0 km.
