"It’s the light bright airiness of this luxury Gozo self-catering villa that makes the biggest first impression. It’s like bringing the outside in and it makes the living space wonderfully refreshing and revitalising.
That’s helped of course by the peaceful lure of a dip in the pool or a BBQ on the pool terrace. And during the cooler off-peak months enjoy the extravagance of champagne in the hot-tub or the gym and sauna shared between the 3 villas.
That’s the real beauty of all the Djar Ta’ Menzja Gozo holiday homes. Year round appeal (helped by underfloor heating air conditioning heaters and an open fire) contemporary comfort and an authentically rustic blend of stone arches wooden beams and Gozitan floor tile mosaics.
You can see the thought that’s gone into every tile frame and arch of Djar Ta’ Menzja 3 – I think you’ll agree it’s really paid off". Jules
An ornamental stone feature is the first attention-grabber as you enter the house – but there’s plenty more beyond. Two arched glass doors lead to the living space illuminated by light from the terrace doors that run the length of the room.

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.
