Holiday Rental House
A luxury villa for family, friends and fun. This is Rustic Villa - hitherto only let in the summer, it is now available all the year round. “Ta Cikku” (meaning “Of Cikku”, a diminutive of the name Francis) has been built with luxury very firmly in mind. Its 5 bedrooms and very large living areas can accommodate up to 10 people with ease. The main rooms are air-conditioned but this is billed separately (by a separate meter). A cleaner comes in every five days to ensure your comfort. It is situated near the centre of the old village of Gharb, yet with open country views. Gharb has plenty of history as any of its local inhabitants will testify! Gharb is the oldest village in Gozo and his home to the larger of the two charming holiday homes offered exclusively by Gozo Luxury Properties...A luxury villa for family, friends and fun.

Gharb has plenty of history as any of its local inhabitants will testify! Gharb is the oldest village in Gozo and his home to the larger of the two charming holiday homes offered exclusively by Gozo Luxury Properties. There is evidence that people lived here as long ago as c.3,800 BC. The Phoenicians used to plan their sea journeys west from here. Later, the Romans, also, built a small settlement. When the Arabs settled they gave their language to the Maltese – and the name Gharb is derived from Arabic (the GH is silent, so it is pronounced “Arb”). It is no surprise that foreigners, in particular those from the UK, like this place. There are still signs of the old British occupation, which lasted nearly two hundred years. The traditional red telephone and post boxes are still very much in use – as well as the local police station's blue lamp! Many foreigners have come to settle here and many old farmhouses have been carefully restored. There are several bars and a couple of restaurants within walking distance. The village is surrounded by dry-stonewalled fields and the peace that is part of an agricultural community. Like other villages it is characterised by narrow streets of terraced stone housing of varying age and style. The church dominates the central piazza. At night, when the stars come out, the silence dedescends almost palpably. More

Ta Cikku is a lovely villa. The swimming pool was great and a welcome respite from the hot mediteran sun. Some really nice restaurants within waking distance varying from chap and cheerful to a little more expensive but all are good value. The rooms are...More

The information on the website is very clear but in my view it underestimates how great this place is for a holiday. We went as 7 adult members of the same family. The pool is fantastic with loads of room around it for all of...More

We arrived earlier than stated to drop off food so it didn't go off in the heat, and Mario put it all away for us. We came back later to a super clean farmhouse. This is the most amazing place to relax and chill out....More

About the neighbourhood
Xewkija the village of the rotunda church, takes its name from a place where thistles grew. At the crossroads (and traffic lights) on the Rabat-Xewkija-Mgarr road, there is a unique windmill. Instead of a square building, it is an eight-sided edifice corresponding to the eight points of the compass and the eight dominant winds. A most spectacular effort is the parish church dome dedicated to St. John The Baptist. Completed in 1981 and paid for by the 3,500 villagers, it boasts the third largest supported dome in the world, coming in after St. Peter's in Rome. The dome is 74 metres high, with a diameter of 27 metres and a circumference of 85 metres. Its total weight is calculated to be around 45,000 tonnes. Of particular interest is the chapel of Our Lady of Mercy around which revolv...
How to get there
Gozo is the smaller, sleepier and more tranquil sister island of Malta – a haven of peace just a stone's throw away from this bustling and cosmopolitan centre. Air Malta, the islands' national air-carrier, fly directly to most of Europe and beyond, making it the perfect choice for an island getaway throughout the year and with convenient, accessible connection possibilities. Once in Malta, allow around one hour to get to the Circewwa Harbour, Malta's most northern point, and allow a further half an hour for the pleasant regular ferry crossing to Gozo. Once here settle back, relax and let the tranquil Mediterranean atmosphere wash over you.
