Thank-you for your kind review of our farmhouse, we were delighted to welcome you back. Like you we are very disappointed in the state of Xaghra Square and hope this is returned to its former glory soon. Whilst not ideal it does provide an opportunity to explore Gozo in search of bars and restaurants set around a typical Gozitan Square...

About the neighbourhood
Xaghra is one of Gozo's larger villages and is well supplied with restaurants, bars, supermarkets and bakeries. In addition Xaghra has a number of historical sites, including the Ggantija Temples (a neolithic temple older than Stonehenge), all within walking distance of our farmhouse. <BR><BR>
Car advised
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. <BR><BR>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. <BR><BR>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.<BR><BR><BR>
