“Gorgeous Gozo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We just got back from an amazing week at Villa Xemxija in Xlendi. We are a small family of 3, and chose to book a one bedroom apartment (apartment X12) because of the large balcony overlooking the pool area and the sea. The apartment was spacious and clean, Manoel had arranged for a baby cot for our 2 year old son and the balcony was just as large and perfect as we had hoped for! We felt very welcome during our whole stay and loved the friendly and laid back atmosphere at Villa Xemxija. The pool area is great, not crowded at all, clean and a very good alternative to the small Xlendi Bay beach.
Xlendi is a really charming, small city with lots of cozy restaurants overlooking the bay. Even though there are a lot of tourists, it still feels quite authentic and not overrun at all. As there are no supermarkets in Xlendi we recommend renting a car (Manoel helped us with that as well, but notice that they drive in the left side..), so you can go to the nearest city for grocery shopping etc. If you prefer not renting a car it is also possible to take the bus, which stops quite close to the Villa.
We also used the car for a few trips around Gozo and especially Rabat (Victoria). However, we found that the most beautiful sights are reached by boat - The blue lagoon and the Azure window. Various tours are arranged from Xlendi bay, - easy and not too expensive.
We would definitely recommend a trip to Gozo, - and make sure to stay at Villa Xemxija!

We had a very relaxing and restful time in Gozo. We enjoyed the
sunshine, the swimming the walking the food and wine and the festa. The
accommodation was excellent and Manoel's advice and assistance
most helpful. If and when we return to Gozo we shall certainly choose
to stay at Villa Xemxija. Manoel and Pauline were always available when needed. On arrival they arranged for the visiting grocery van to wait for us. We would also recommend this - it stopped outside the Villa, we bought all our groceries and wine there and it saved having to spend time going to a shop. Manoel arranged the transfers for us from and to the airport. The Villa is close (200m?) to the beach although coming back it is a short but quite steep hill. The pool at the Villa was very good and clean.

Just enjoyed another 2 weeks at Villa Xemxija. Spacious apartment with lovely views down to the sea. Had a really relaxing time . Manoel and Pauline as usual were very welcoming and very helpful if we required anything.

Be back again in September. Can't wait

We've just got back from another fantastic holiday at Villa Xemxija in Xlendi. This time as there were only two of us, instead of four, we stayed in the beautiful two bedroomed ground floor apartment over-looking the pool. The apartment was clean and well decorated which gave it a lovely homely feel. Once again we had all of the facilities to make our stay very comfortable including fridge, toaster, oven, kettle, hairdryer etc. the balcony has a lovely view across the pool and down the road to the sea. Our hosts are always fantastic, welcoming and very helpful if we ever need anything. I couldn't recommend these apartments more highly - we will definitely be back again in the future!

Our time at Villa Xemxija was great: the apartment was clean, spacious and in good condition, as was the swimming pool and outside area; Manoel and Pauline were very friendly and helpful, ready with tips about the local area; Xlendi was a lovely little town with good restaurants and amazing cliffs. All in all, it was perfect, a great spot for relaxing and having fun.

Back again...We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and in Gozo. We are walkers and discovered a new book of walks on Gozo. The weather was great for walking.

The apartment is nice and quiet and Pauline and Manoel are nearby when we needed to ask them for something.

We had a great trip to Gozo and our thanks go to Manoel and Pauline, they were very helpful and welcoming hosts. We were only in Gozo for 5 days but found the accomodation and location to be ideal. The apartment was very clean and had everything needed for a self catering stay. The patio is great for sitting out in the evening sun with a glass of wine whilst looking out at the sea. The pool area is good for a bracing dip or to relax and lie in the sun!

Xlendi is a great wee place with fantastic rocky views and restaurants that line the shore, we can honestly say we didnt have a bad evening meal during our visit. The fish in particular was tasty and fresh everywhere. We were going to hire a car but in the end just decided to use the bus service to get about the island and see the sights, it goes everywhere, its cheap at 2.60 Euro PP for a day ticket and all the services are regular in and out of Victoria. it is also very handy as the bus stop is about 200 yards away from the Villa.

The only tiny location negative is the lack of local shop, but its not a real problem as Victoria is so close where supermarkets can be found to stock up on food/drink supplies once you first arrive.

Also a quick thanks to Joey the taxi driver that Manoel organised. Quick, friendly service.

Thanks again.
