37, Triq Sansun, Xewkija, Gozo


The Villa Xini is a delightful first class villa built in a traditional Gozitan style in the tranquil village of Xewkija, a 10-minute walk from the pebbly beach of Mgarr ix-Xini and the dramatic cliffs of Ta' Cenc. You enter from a narrow alley into the Villa Xini's private courtyard. The villa itself has a spacious open-plan lounge/diner, beautifully furnished with a rattan sofa and chairs, and a superb oak kitchen with verde granite worktops. The huge verandah, which opens off the dining area, has a great view over the swimming pool (8m x 5m) and beyond to the surrounding fields with their almond, carob and fig trees, fennel and prickly pears. There is a 21" stereo-sound colour TV, Pay Phone, optional washing machine, and a fire-place. A built-in barbeque is near the private swimming pool.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one has a double bed and an en suite shower room, the other has three single beds. There is also a separate bathroom. A traditional stone staircase leads from the living room up to an airy landing with a double bed and opens onto the large roof terrace. It can sleep 7 persons comfortably.

A short walk from Villa Xini leads down the valley of Mgarr ix-Xini, which finally opens out to an inlet. The valley itself looks as if has been cut into the land by an invisible hand. At various places over-looking the valley, trough-like depressions are carved in solid ground, rectangular and square. A report in 1946 described them as "troughs of unknown antiquity".

Availability and prices on request. Maid service once weekly. Early booking is essential.

Bicycle/car hire is recommended. Transfer to and from your accommodation (including the ferry/helicopter) can be arranged, regardless of your arrival time. You will be greeted at the airport and transferred straight to Villa Xini.
