We spent a brilliant week in the farm house this February, even though the weather was a bit unpredictable and it was too cold to use the amazing looking outdoor pool we thoroughly enjoyed using the hot tub instead. The house itself is enormous and we felt like we were living in our very own castle! Massimo was the perfect...

Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

About the neighbourhood
The peaceful village of Munxar lies to the south of the island of Gozo between Xlendi valley and the village of Sannat. Munxar is very close to the capital Victoria and has a population of about 1019 people.

This village offers spectacular imagery such as Xlendi valley, Ghancija valley, and Bardan cliffs. Also worth mentioning are the remnants of a prehistoric temple at Ta' Marziena which date approximately to the Ggantija period.

The Parish church, a small baroque temple is dedicated to St. Paul. The feast of St. Paul falls on the 10th of February which is also a national, public holiday. However the outside festivities are celebrated on the third Sunday of each May.

A swift ten-minute countrywalk takes you to Xlendi Bay, a very popular tourist resort. Wedged between majestic cliff...
