Bezitt is a lovely traditional Gozitan house with many original features including a beautiful interior stone staircase. It is situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Xaghra (pronounced ‘shara’!), which has many restaurants plus a bank, supermarkets, a petrol station and gift shops. A short drive away is Ramla beach. This is Gozo’s, and arguably Malta’s, best beach. A wide stretch of red sand, it is often referred to locally as “Ramla il-Ħamra” – the Red Sandy Beach! It is a fabulous place to swim, snorkel and chill out in the sun. The area around the beach is wonderfully undeveloped, although there are a couple of cafes and a stall set back from the beach.
On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with en suite shower plus a twin room with separate shower room. This twin room can easily accommodate a third folding bed, if required. The enormous dining area and adjoining kitchen is perfect for entertaining and has patio doors leading out to the garden, which also has a built in BBQ and an amazing stone table and benches. Back inside, the fabulous winding stone staircase leads to a landing with a door to the large outside terrace that curves around the house. Leading off the landing is the third bedroom. This light airy room has distant views of the sea and its own en suite bathroom. A cot is available if needed.
A large pool is surrounded by vibrant gardens. Secluded and quiet, this walled garden gives you total privacy. There is also an upstairs terrace with views out over the countryside, the valley of Ghajn Barrani and the sea.
This very spacious house has fans and, air conditioning in the bedrooms, for both cold air and heat and, a wood-burning stove in the living room. The air conditioning units are coin operated, taking one and two euro coins.
There is plenty of parking, which is shared by our house next door, Sinjura. The two houses together are ideal for a larger group of people.
