About the surrounding area of Villa Xaghra
Rural Location Walking/Hiking Paths

The wonderful Villa Xaghra enjoys a splendid rural location with stunning panorama on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Xaghra. The village is surrounded by lush fertile valleys, some of the best agricultural land in Gozo and stunning beaches. Xaghra is the third largest place on Gozo after the capital Victoria and Nadur. The village boasts gorgeous ancient buildings including the Ggantija Temples and Ta’ Kola Windmill, a restored eighteenth century windmill with its original mechanism and restored miller’s living quarters which are now a folklore museum. The Ggantija Temples are the most famous prehistoric site of the Maltese islands. Xerri’s Grotto and Ninu’s Cave are two caves that are easily accessible from the village square with fabulous examples of stalactites and stalagmites. On the edge of Xaghra, with breathtaking views of Ramla Bay, is the mythological Calypso’s Cave, supposed home of the nymph Calypso in Homer’s Odyssey. On the shore below Calypso’s Cave are the ruins of a fortification built by the Knights of Malta in the mid 18th century. The Xaghra toy museum, Pomskizillious Museum of Toys, enjoys a display of antique toys.

Gozo offers a quieter, more tranquil holiday experience than its larger neighbour, the island of Malta. It is roughly twenty five minutes away by ferry. The capital city of Victoria offers plenty of historical interest, boasting a variety of museums such as the Cathedral Museum, a Folklore Museum, the Gozo Nature Museum, the Old Prison and a Museum of Archaeology as well as a state-of-the-art Visitor’s Centre. Victoria offers excellent shopping with a daily market on Independence Square and a number of smart shopping malls. Its pretty Villa Rundle Gardens are lovely. Only a few families now live within the Citadel walls. In the main square, you will discover the Law Courts, Bishop’s Palace and the magnificent baroque Cathedral of Gozo dedicated to Santa Marija.

Though the island is small, it is best to hire a car to explore. You can hire one in Malta and take it across on the ferry for a surcharge. There are some magnicifent beaches and coves including Ramla, San Blas Bay and Dwerja. Guests that enjoy hiking will appreciate breathtaking scenery when visiting the valley of Wied l-Għasri or heading up Tal-Merżuq Hill. The island is sprinkled with soaring cliffs, turquoise waters and lush valleys. When night falls, there’s no better place to stare at the stars than the remote coastal spot of Xwejni, known for its wonderfully clear skies. On the north coast of Gozo, just past Qbajjar Bay and west of Marsalforn, the coast is characterised by three hundred and fifty year old rock-cut saltpans which protrude into the sea and stretch for roughly three kilometres. During the summer months locals can still be seen scraping up the crystals of salt.

The Dwejra Tower is a small watchtower in Dwerjra Bay which was completed in 1652. It is open to the public and is one of four surviving coastal watchtowers in Gozo, the others being Xlendi Tower, Mgarr ix-Xini Tower and Isopu Tower.

The Ta’ Pinu Sanctuary is a must stop. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta’Pinu is a Roman Catholic basilica and national shrine roughly seven hundred metres from the village of Gharb. It sits in open countryside with sensational views.

Villa Xaghra is an excellent holiday pick for families. Its list of entertainment is endless and there are many living spaces. Children love having an indoor and outdoor pool. The indoor one can be heated when it is chilly. The cinema room is phenomenal with seriously comfy leather reclining seats and a huge screen.

Gozo is wonderful with a great variety of beaches from rocky coves to sandy shores. Families love their beach days on Gozo. There are plenty of watersports available from inflatables to waterskiing, jet skiing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and diving.  There are good diving schools providing PADI courses such as BubbleMaker, aimed at giving small children a taste of diving. Children love boat rides and again there are plenty to choose from. You can explore the coast line, sail to the island of Comino or head out for a sunset cruise.

Children can learn a lot about history on Gozo, stopping at the Ggantija Temples and other wonderful buildings. The temples are considered to be some of the the oldest freestanding structures in the world and conjure up a lot of questions in the minds of little ones. Victoria’s Citadel offers incredible ancient buildings and breathtaking views. Victoria’s museums are also super interesting and the windmill in Xaghra is fantastic. The small and privately owned toy museum of Xaghra boasts a wide array of old toys including an 18th century Maltese doll with a carbed wooden head, a 1930’s Noah’s Ark, a Hornby train set and lots of dinky vehicles. Children enjoy discovering this wonderful island by bus, bike, segway and tuk-tuks.

The Three Hills Garden offers excellent play areas for children. It is a great spot for a picnic. Other popular outings include Qbijjar Bay and the saltpans, the trackless train Gozo and the Villa Rundel Gardens. The cultural and historical Calypso train from Victoria to Xaghra passes St Martha’s Chapel, the Rotunda Church, Xewkija, The Villa Rundel Gardens, Ta’ Kola Windmill, the Ggantija Temples and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel.

The island’s lush interior is perfect for families that love to cycle, walk, hike or horse ride. Gozo is a magical place during the Christmas season and its mild winter weather makes it a brilliant getaway. In the summer, children love the fiestas where they will enjoy fireworks, marching bands and live music.
