    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Dar Rahal is a self-catering holiday home, a little piece of paradise – quiet, secluded, family friendly and walking distance to the centre of Xaghra and all it has to offer including restaurants, shops, historic locations, village square, etc. Our 400yr old farmhouse has been sympathetically converted into a comfortable holiday home retaining many of the original features whilst allowing for easy living.

    You can spend your days lounging by the roof top pool and on the sun terrace, or venture to the many beautiful beaches that Gozo has to offer. In the evenings, you can cook or BBQ at the farmhouse, or head out to savour the tastes, sights and sounds of Gozo.

    How to get there
    Airport: Malta International Airport:: 21.7 mi
    Ferry: Mgarr: 3.1 mi
    Air Malta , British Airways, Ryanair as well as the big charter airlines which fly from most major UK airports to Malta International Airport during spring and summer.

    To get to the island of Gozo is a drive and a ferry ride from the airport, allow at least 1.5 hours for this.

    We recommend hiring a car to be able to get to Gozo and then take in the sights of the island however we've had good feedback from recent guests who've tried airport taxi transfers and taking buses as a means of getting around so this is an option which should not be discounted if you don't fancy driving. We can provide further details on these options if required.

Dar Rajal is really beautiful, especially when the patio is lit up at night. The only sound in the morning is the crowing of a cockerel, so it feels truly rustic, even though it is only a 15 minute walk to the main square in town. Booking the farmhouse was simple. Rachel, the owner, is very efficient in sending all... more

Management response:

Thanks for your lovely review. We're glad you appreciated the beach towels, kids' toys and welcome bottles of wine! Improvements we're working on for next year include some child safety gates for upstairs as well as installing WiFi so hopefully this improves our offering still further. I hope we can welcome you back to our farmhouse again in the future... more

We stayed at Dar Rahal for a week in late October and we were blessed with good weather nearly every day. The house is in a great location as its easy to walk to local (and very good) restaurants and then some great beaches are within easy driving distance. The house itself is lovely, well presented and well equiped. There... more

Management response:

Thank-you for your feedback and recommendations. We're delighted to hear you had a great holiday and really appreciated your thoughts on some areas for improvement. The stair gates are a excellent idea - not sure why this didn't occur to us during our holidays with our 1 year old and 3 year old twins! We hope we can welcome you... more

The property is a lovely old farmhouse. All the rooms are comfortable and spacious with en-suite facilties in each bedroom. The courtyard is very pleasant and ideal for eating outside as it provides shade. The swimming pool is small but ideal for coolling off and there is a nice area next to it on the roof for sunbathing with sun... more
