My daughter and I spent a wonderful week here. The house was fully equipped with all we could need and it was great to have the private pool. We had the added advantage of being there during the week long fest so there was something to see every night in the square. I definitely recommend this farmhouse, Victor and his wife are very friendly and helpful, we couldn't have been happier with our holiday.
We have just spent a wonderful week at 'Ta Cikku'. Victor and his wife are wonderful hosts and even picked us up from the bus stop on arrival.
The farmhouse is large and spacious with a lovely small but deep pool in the enclosed back courtyard. We were welcomed with a generous pack of foods that helped us start the week and the home is very clean and well appointed throughout.
Plenty of towels, condiments, a well appointed kitchen even toilet rolls etc so no need to bring anything of your own. Bedrooms are large,all are en suite and have a/c.
The pool area has 3 large bed loungers, a rocking chair lounger and a large table and chairs for al fresco dining plus a new BBQ.
Throughout the week we looked forward to returning to our little farmhouse from our day trips.
Top tips - 1) J and M groceries is a short 600m walk down from the house and they will drive you back free of charge. Well worth it when you stock up at the beginning of the week.
2) As with most of the Med. there are mosquitoes around so bring some spray if you get affected by them.
3) The square in Xaghra is lovely with 3-4 good restaurants
4) The Ggantija temples are the same length of walk to the square (20 mins.) but a different direction. Watch out for google maps if you are walking there as it sends you to the old entrance that is now closed. New entrance is signposted. Thank you so much Victor and Sandra
Have a great time ☀️
On our first arrival it didn't disappoint, Victor and his wife met us with the warmest of welcomes.....they even had gone out of their way to purchase lactose free milk for my little one and me and my husband were really happy with the wine and beer as well
The farmhouse is beautiful with plenty of space for our family of 5 the pool is amazing my 3 children spent every single day in there. Xaghra the town in my opinion is the best on the island plenty of restaurants and bars etc, we will defiantly be back to visit Ta Cikku
The farmhouse has everything you could possibly need. It's fully equipped to cook a meal or BBQ or just snacks if that's what you want. The pictures didn't do it justice!! I fell in love with this lovely farmhouse and the location is perfect.
The bedrooms are spacious and we had lots of room. I had forgotten to bring coat hangers but was so surprised when the wardrobes were full of them. So a little tip, don't bring any as you don't need them, keep the space in your case for essentials like shoes!
The pool is great and it looks stunning of an evening when the lights are on. I wish I could include a picture for you all.
The square is five minutes away, and has delicious restaurants and they are reasonably priced for the quality of food you get.
We had a gift pack waiting for us, with bread, cheese, olives,apples,water, butter and wine. I can honestly say it was all delicious.
There is a really good reliable bus service that takes you into Victoria.
I may be booking this farmhouse again next year as we had a fantastic holiday. I can't recommend this enough, if you book it, you will love it.
Beautiful farmhouse in the village of Xaghra....about a 15 minute stroll to the village square. The farmhouse is spacious and has a lovely pool area to relax and enjoy a BBQ lunch. We used the BBQ on a number of occasions during our stay. The farmhouse was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and equipped with everything you need to self-cater.
The village square has some great restaurants and if you don't want to hire a car there is a regular bus service to other villages on the island.
Victor and Sandra were great to deal with and always replied the same day. Arriving in the evening we were very grateful for the lift from the port and the welcome pack.
All in all a great relaxing holiday in a beautiful property....will definitely look to return and would recommend!!
One of our favourite holidays! The farmhouse is in a great location on the island, is very well equipped and very homely. It has a relaxing patio area and pool is kept exceptionally clean. The BBQ was used on a number of occasions!. We didn’t hire a car as wanted an adventure holiday so plenty of walking, used the local buses and taxis. Even hired a taxi for the day to take us on a tour round the island and the driver was a great guide, stopping wherever and as for as long as we wanted! (cheaper than using the tour buses!) Ramla Bay with sandy beach (and the best ice cream van!) within walking distance (20 mins) and Marsalforn not too far either. Fantastic hospitality from Victor with plenty of informative emails and even a welcome pack! We would love to return some day! Thanks Victor!
Victor was responsive, flexible and helpful without ever being intrusive. Perfect service.
The property was a delight; beautiful flowery courtyard, comfortable sitting room, well-appointed kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms all clean and comfortable. The small swimming pool was clean and well maintained.
The quiet location on the edge of town was pleasant but we could saunter into town in 10-15 minutes or drive in 5 minutes.The town of Xaghra was small and friendly with lots of cafes and restaurants and little groceries. `Favourite was the pizzeria opposite the Toy Museum where we picked up bread every morning fresh from the authentic brick bread oven.
Xaghra is well located for quick trips to the beach at Ramla or into Victoria. But really on Gozo, nowhere is far at all.
We loved our stay in Ta Cikku.
