Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was our fifth trip to Gozo, and the fourth farmhouse we have stayed in, and by far the best. The building is in an excellent location, and parking was never a problem. Xewkija has good local shops and the best bakery by far on the island(Fresh local bread to die for at 8 in the morning) and is less...

Villa Xini is nice. There is plenty of space inside and out and the facilities are good. There are some downsides though. The pool is too deep. The shallow end is 1.6 m so there is nowhere you can stand in the pool to chat or whatever. The ants were a pain in the proverbials but we found some ant...

Management response:

Dahlet Qorrot is indeed one of the best for snorkling. You might have also enjoyed Mgarr ix-Xini where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie shot their last movie, By The Sea.

We stayed at this lovely villa in early July. The transfer from airport to villa with Frankie, was seamless and organised by our wonderful host Ted. The villa is very spacious and clean. The private pool is wonderful. It is very deep so non swimmers would need to be supervised at all times, and swim vests are essential as there...

About the neighbourhood
The village sprawls along and of the main Victoria-Mgarr road, and is well signposted. On the 4th Sunday in June Xewkija celebrates its festa to St. John the Baptist, patron of the knights of Malta.
From Xewkija it is 2km to the pebbly beach at Mgarr ix-Xini (meaning 'the galley's landing place). Fork left exactly 1km out of Xewkija - the road is not for the drunk or fainthearted. The swimming in the small fjord at the bottom of teh steep single track is clean and suitable for children. Gozo's south coast has the same topography as Dingli cliffs: the waters are dark, deep and clear against the sheer cliff face, offering good diving and snorkelling.
