All about Analisa’s place

Fancy spending a unique few days or even weeks in a picturesque 400-year-old farmhouse situated in the peaceful village core of quaint Gharghur? Would you like to travel back in time for a romantic break, or to get away from today's rushed life? This is now possible with the careful restoration of a room that in the past served as the farmer's main living area. To make it even more enticing, it comes with a/c and also ample free parking space in the centuries-old streets that surround the area.

The space
For the traveller that is not content with run-of-the-mill accommodation but would like to savour Maltese history and see how it must have been to live in a typical village farmhouse hundreds of years back; this while still being physically close to all that the island has to offer nowadays!

The spacious room enjoys the same basic facilities one has come to expect from today's accommodation, such as a comfortable bed, complete with a semi-orthopaedic mattress and plush pillows, together with recently installed air conditioning, a sizeable dining area, tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge, crockery/cutlery, a small library (including a number of Malta travel guides), etc.

More importantly, the room has the added benefit of being totally cut off from the rest of this scenic farmhouse, thus affording lots of privacy sadly lacking in most accommodation options of this type nowadays. Furthermore, you are assured of our undivided attention during your stay since we only accept one couple (or individual) at any given time.

The farmhouse itself is a labour of love and has been meticulously restored to offer a unique experience that will definitely not disappoint! We tried our best to keep true to the original features without overly modernising the place in order to maintain its unique charm. Unfortunately, places similar to ours are sometimes spoilt with conversions of the sort where walls are inexplicably whitewashed and gypsum walls + modern tiles installed, thus destroying the original beauty of such unique buildings from another era.

So... if you:
- would like to be hosted by a welcoming Maltese family that is well-versed in the islands customs, history and traditions;
- are looking for an off-the-beaten-track experience;
- to unwind in rural settings that stood the test of time;
- to be immersed in nature, or;
- simply searching for a secluded romantic getaway...

...then this is definitely the place for you! :)

Where you’ll be

Ħal Għargħur, Malta

The farmhouse is located in the ancient village core of peaceful Gharghur. It is primarily a very idyllic and welcoming residential area with narrow winding streets and the right mix of village folk and high-end professionals who prefer living away from the hectic life noisy cities usually have to offer.

Amongst other things, one can find a quaint little Wine Bar and Bistro round the corner, a handful of surprisingly exquisite restaurants and pizzerias, a traditional Maltese bakery a couple of paces down the street, together with other tiny food outlets such as a green grocer, mini market and a conveniently located store selling all sort of food and every day needs that is open from seven in the morning till eight o'clock in the evening, Monday-Sunday. For those who would like to really immerse themselves in local village life, the local band club situated opposite the church, two minutes away from us, also offers breakfast from as little as two euro per person, while those in search of something more extravagant can visit the upmarket cafeteria that recently opened its doors in the main square. Guests can also avail themselves of a newly-installed ATM two blocks away.

We are situated a stone's throw away from one of Malta's most picturesque valleys and a very short walk from one of the island's most scenic view points - the 'Top of the World' belvedere that gives one an outstanding view of the north of the island, together with the islands of Comino and Gozo. On a clear day one may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Sicily and the iconic Mount Etna Volcano. One can also admire some historic artefacts such as the idyllic Victoria Lines, a romantic picture-perfect chapel popular for weddings, go for a morning jog along the scenic route and also enjoy mingling with the very friendly locals.

Our listing was for a long time the only one with super host status in the village and to this day it is still one of the most sought after for the authentic experience it affords (as attested by the reviews). Super host status was lost last year when we had to regrettably stop hosting owing to the pandemic situation at the time; we are, however, very much looking forward to bounce back and regain the much coveted top hosts badge possibly with your help! :)

During your stay

We are a very down-to-earth Maltese family that go out of their way to make our guests feel welcome without impinging on their privacy. The actual setup of our historic farmhouse more than allows for this, since the guest quarters are completely cut off from the main house, therefore allowing guests the benefit of both privacy and the warmth expected by a host.

Both my husband and I have been hosting guests for a number of years now and consider ourselves very knowledgeable about Malta's history, culture and general way of life. Moreover, we are very in-tune with what different guests look out for when they visit our sunny islands and therefore find it easy to dish out practical tips to enhance our guests' holiday break. By doing so, we help our guests avoid the hassle of having to decide what is worth a visit in the limited time at their disposition. The reviews on our page more than attest to this. We are also available to help guests plan their stay down to the last detail if they require any help with their itinerary.

Please feel free to browse and send us any enquiry you may have. We will be more than glad to guide you in the best way possible.
