4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Xaghra, Island of Gozo
Dar il Gnejna is a spacious village house with swimming pool and outdoor space for lounging and al fresco eating. 3 terraces, one for sunbathing, one for taking in the views and one (that is shaded) for escaping the sunshine - ideal for sipping a glass of local rose as you watch the cruise ships on their way to Valletta.

There are 4 double bedrooms (2 en-suite), a family bathroom, a large kitchen dining room with doors to the outside eating area, sitting room with doors to the poolside.

Located in the village of Xaghra, it's square with bars and restaurants is only 10 minutes walk away. Ramla Bay with its golden sandy beach and clear waters is just down the hill (5 minutes in the car) and Ggantija temples are also nearby. There's something for everyone.

The village is quiet and peaceful, yet only fifteen minutes from Victoria...

We chose Dar il Gnejna because we were looking for a house in the Xaghra area and fell in love with the images of the house on this site. It absolutely didn't disappoint - in fact everything exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The house is extremely spacious and is on three floors, with...
