Villa overview - owner's description

Blade Farmhouse is an authentic stone-built original Gozitan farmhouse brimming with local flavour, with a serene walled garden, private pool, stunning terrace and proximity to the pretty village of Xaghra.

Bursting with rustic style and local charm, guests will immediately have the sense of having stepped back in time into an original stone clad farmhouse. Six guests can be accommodated across 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (plus a seventh guest sleeping on an extra bed), while the potential for stylish outdoor living is endless. Surrounded by luscious palm groves, just a short distance to the bustle of the village, this home ticks all the boxes for those who seek tranquillity away from the crowds and authentic island living.

Executed for cooling spaces in the summer and insulated warmth in the winter, the interiors at this home are characterised by the exposed stonework, arches, and exposed timber beams; the timeless arches offering a Moorish-Arabo touch. Simplicity, elegance and understated style are the hallmarks of this chic retreat. Stylish open plan living features natural tones offset with accents of warm crimsons, while the stone courtyard garden is offset by vividly flowering bougainvillaea.

The sleek terraced garden has an Italianate touch along with the exotic oasis feel thanks to the palm trees; a beautiful stone build seating and dining area sets the scene for stylish outdoor living, for barbecues on balmy summer evenings. The airy interiors are full of character, charm and abundant individual style, antique woods, re-worked timbers, those ever-so elegant arches - a timelessness that sees exquisite original charm with modern-day comfort.

Reclining as a family in the living space, with the views of the gardens, in the cooling enclave of this charismatic home will be a pleasure, or sitting as a family on the long timber dining table enjoying local flavours will see guests enjoy the local pace of life. Unpretentious style, tranquil proportions and ultra-pretty outdoor spaces characterise this home. For stunning views, guests have a sleek terrace - an ideal nook for an evening drink as the sun softens over the hills.

Blade Farmhouse blends Gozitan charm, elegant group or family living spaces, stylish outdoor living and timeless farmhouse chic, just a short distance from the picturesque Xaghra with its rich heritage.

Location

Blade Farmhouse is nestled on the outskirts of the pretty, historic small town of Xaghra (pronounced ‘shara'!), which offers a taste of local life, shops, restaurants and eateries. Just a short distance away, guests can enjoy the spectacular Ramla Beach, considered one of the finest in the archipelago, it's known for its striking red sands, family amenities and water sports.

Gozo is the sister island of Malta, accessible by a 25-minute ferry crossing from Malta, it is the second-largest island in the archipelago, and the second largest of the three inhabited Maltese Islands. With a population of just 37,000 (7,000 of these in the capital Rabat, also known as Victoria), the island covers an area of 26² miles and is known for its historic charm, its slow pace of life and sumptuous seafood. Like Malta in years gone-by, Gozo offers authentic local village life, original fishing villages and local crafts and endless stretches of coastline with clear, calm waters.

Xaghra is known for its rich history and heritage; home to the extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Ggantija temple complex, consisting of two Neolithic stone temples built from as early as 3600BC (among the oldest freestanding stone buildings in the world), it also offers local piazza life and sumptuous seafood eateries. The Ta' Kola Windmill is a restored eighteenth-century windmill, with an original mechanism and restored miller's living quarters, it makes for a fascinating visit and insight into the island's industries.

From any spot on the island of Gozo, the sea is no more than ten minutes away, and the gentle currents offer ideal conditions for diving, fishing and sea kayaking. Ramla Beach is known for its red sands and is one of the island's finest, while trips out on boat trips to the surrounding islands make for stunning days out.

The capital of Gozo, Victoria (also known as Rabat), offers a bustling and colourful array of local culture, plazas and flower-filled terraces to watch the world go by, historical sites and summer open-air concerts. Known for its exquisite seafood and family-friendly atmosphere, local crafts and slow pace of life, this unique island that time forgot is a hidden gem in the glittering bay of Malta.
