"Through the front door of this Gozo holiday home you’ll find an authentically rustic blend of stone arches wooden beams and Gozitan floor tile mosaics. It’s a colourful refreshing space and every time I come here I find myself drawn to the large open living area where the light is magnified by the terrace doors.
All three of the Djar Ta’ Menzja holiday homes carefully balance the modern with the traditional. You can see the thought that’s gone into it – and it has really paid off.
One major draw of Djar Ta’ Menzja 1 is its year-round appeal. In summer you can enjoy the peaceful lure of a lazy BBQ by the pool terrace. During the cooler off-peak months why not pop open a bottle of champagne whilst sitting in the extravagant hot tub? It’s the most relaxing of vantage points from which to enjoy the countryside views.
With additional underfloor heating air conditioning and an open fire Djar Ta’ Menzja 1 makes the perfect luxury Gozo holiday villa for cool summer breaks or warm winter getaways.
And with the added benefit of a communal gym and sauna (shared with the two other villas) whenever you choose to stay this house has a lot to offer" - Jules

Stairs to access some areas of this villa
The name Ta’ Sannat possibly derives from an Arabic-Greek family who moved across from Sicily. The village lies in the southerly end of Gozo and is best known for Ta’ Cenc plateau. This fantastic plateau of typically Maltese flora and fauna overlooks the Hanzira Valley - a natural gorge with steep rocky sides separating Ta’ Sannat from Xewkija village. The plateau can be found at the edge of the village close to the highest cliffs in Gozo - the Ta’ Cenc Cliffs. Down from the Hanzira valley you find Mgarr ix-Xini Bay a particularly delightful spot for swimming and diving.
Aside from the splendid views Ta’ Cenc is a place of natural interest as a number of prehistoric remains have been found here including the remains of the ancient L-Imramma Temple (a roughly shaped horizontal limestone slab supported on three sides by blocks of upright stone).
The village is also known for gaining independent parish status in 1688 making it one of the first Island villages to do so. The church today dedicated to St. Margaret the Martyr was built on the site of an earlier church. This earlier church dating back to 1718 was consecrated twice - once in 1755 and again (after the significant structural changes) in 1868. While you are there take a look inside at the fine altarpiece by Stefano Erardi. The village festa celebrating St Margaret take place around the third week of July and is always worth watching.
Private private parking is available.
