Full description:

A truly delightful farmhouse with many original features which has been fully restored and sympathetically extended to create spacious living accommodation full of natural light. Situated on high ground in a tranquil area at the edge of the village of Kercem it enjoys panoramic views over Gozo. The entrance hall and reception room with oil-fired stove looks into the inner courtyard and a couple of stairs lead down past a guest toilet to the kitchen. This has been finished to very high standards with marble work-surfaces, Rangemaster oven and an informal dining area. At one end of the kitchen there is the formal dining room with arched ceiling and steps lead past the courtyard into a 40sqm living room. This has an exceptionally high ceiling to enhance the feeling of space and the wood-burning feature fireplace creates a wonderful focal point. At the far end of the room doors open onto the garden and the first dining area surrounded by raised beds and planters with mature climbing plants such as bougainvillea, plumbago, yucca, bananas, and mulberry, almond and palm trees. Beyond this there is another garden with a covered pergola and BBQ and a fully tiled 45sqm swimming pool surrounded by lush planting with an Indonesian breeze house.

Returning to the entrance hall the original stone stairs take you to three double bedrooms all with ensuite shower rooms. The third bedroom also enjoys access to a large roof terrace on two levels with a shaded wooden pergola overlooking the sea and west-facing to enjoy the sunset. A short flight of stairs takes you to the spacious and light master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and oil-fired stove. Its' east-facing terrace welcomes the morning sun and enjoys lovely views across the island. A really special property, full of atmosphere and charm, when you visit you will not want to leave!

The village of Ta' Kerċem lies close to the south-east edge of Rabat , and is surrounded by the most beautiful inland landscapes in Gozo. Spread between the picturesque Lunzjata Valley, the green hills of "tal-Mixta, Għar Ilma" and "ta' Dbieġi", and stretching up to the Pond of San Rafflu and the ix-Xlendi cliffs, this is an ideal place for artists, walkers and cyclists. Walkers and cyclists can easily go from here to the village of San Lawrenz or down to Dwejra Bay.

Archaeological discoveries have shown that the area of Ta' Kerċem was one of the earliest places to be inhabited on Gozo beginning some 7000 years ago. Remains of Roman Baths and an early Christian cemetery at Għar Gerduf (not visitable) indicate continued habitation and by the sixteenth century there was a significant community here centred on a chapel dedicated to Pope St. Gregory the Great built around 1581.

The community became well-known due to the annual St. Gregory procession from ir-Rabat (Victoria) to this chapel, on the saint's feast day (12th March). This is still celebrated, but now Kercem has two patron saints - the only village in Gozo to do so.

Today's parish church, built in 1851 and enlarged in 1906-10, is dedicated to both St Gregory and to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. As a result the village has two festas each year, in March for St Gregory and on the second Sunday in July for Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The latter is now the larger of the two celebrations.

The village of Ta' Kerċem has a population of only 1700, but it is culturally very active. The annual Għadira Fair is a particularly popular old-style family fair with traditional music, food, drinks, pony rides and competitons in the beautiful countryside around San Rafflu. Prizes range from the modern to the definitely traditional, including goats, sheep, rabbits and poultry!
