Dar Ta Nina is just a two minute walk away from Xaghra's beautiful square with its excellent selection of restaurants and bars. This stunning five bedroomed, 300 year old house of character is a haven of peace and tranquility and has been tastefully furnished throughout.
Guests and friends say that the house has the feel and style of a baronial castle due to its central wrought iron chandelier, original thick walls, high ceilings and galleried stairways.
Set over three floors with a private outside pool and garden patio, the house has recently been fully renovated to exacting standards.
The house contains many original features including high ceilings, wooden beams, traditional Gozitan floor tiles and a wealth of stone arches.
The brand new, craftsmen built kitchen includes a polished marble counter top and a larger than standard fridge freezer. A large capacity stainless steel oven with five burner hob offers holiday chefs the opportunity to create their own dining experience. We like to cook and entertain and have therefore provided high grade pots, pans and utensils along with restaurant quality crockery, cutlery and glassware. A full sized built in dishwasher takes care of the washing up!
The handmade dining table will easily seat 10 to 12 guests and is overlooked by a feature lit ancient rubble wall, set within a tall stone arch and has views out to the swimming pool and garden.
The thoughtfully designed garden area is also equipped with a 10/12 seater dining table and chairs along with a brick built barbeque, stainless steel sink and ambient lighting to enjoy the lazy Gozitan evenings.
The garden also features an ancient and functional freshwater well that is covered by a laminated glass top for the safety of our guests.
The lounge area features an L shaped handmade sofa, another three seater sofa and a 42 inch LED TV linked to an IPTV box (Internet) giving access to a host of international TV channels and films. An Xbox (doubles as a DVD player) and a selection of games will keep the youngsters happy.
A traditional huge Gozitan feature fireplace takes pride of place and our winter guests will have the pleasure of being warm and cosy in front of the Norwegian Jotul log burning stove.
At the rear of the house our guests will find the ground floor double bedroom and next to that an open plan wetroom and toilet with rainfall shower. This room also accomodates the very latest Samsung, eco friendly washing machine
