“Stocks is one of a private suite of three farmhouses, all secluded, in a quite spot in the village of Ghasri. Through a private entrance, the front door opens into a wide open living area of light and generous space. This is consistent throughout
A limestone archway leads into a spacious and combined living area where light from pool terrace doors enhances the space further. The kitchen is finsished in painted cream wood and complemented by the farmhouse dining table with the same finish. Both add a Mediterranean feel to the house. Stone archways cleverly define the use of open space. A good size private pool and terrace offers a great opportunity to enjoy a lazy sunny day and BBQ at home.
All 3 bedrooms have a modern finsh and are particularly generous in space.
Comfortably furnished, Stocks provides a generous and comfotable family holiday home and great base to explore the riches of Gozo” JULES
If you take the Victoria-Gharb road to the Aqueduct and fork right you will find the smallest village on the island nestled between the hills of iz-Zebbug and Ghammar.
The village of Ghasri sits amongst the fields and valleys of rural Gozo near to Victoria’s commanding Citadel and close to one of the best swimming spots on the island. Worthy of a stop is Tal Gordan a flat-topped hill with an iconic lighthouse. At 180 meters above sea level the Lighthouse towers over the village and stands proudly on top of Gurdan Hill. Inaugurated in 1853 the Lighthouse’ beam could be seen as far as 50 kilometres away so affords a fantastic 360 degree view when you get there. It’s a must for ramblers.
From Ghasri village square a road leads to the fabulous valley of Wied l-Ghasri 2.3km away from your Gozo holiday farmhouse. The Wied l-Ghasri area is a marvellous place for country walks or rewarding cycle rides especially in winter and spring. The valley ends at the sea wedged between high cliffs where a secluded inlet makes an ideal spot for swimming snorkeling and together with the sea surrounding it a very popular spot for diving.
On the way be sure to stop at the charming old chapel dedicated to the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
