Dar Alessia is a quaint, very traditional Gozitan house. It has lovely old tiled floors, an open stone fireplace and lots of original features. The open plan downstairs area has a large dining table for entertaining, a cosy lounge and a well equipped kitchen. Doors from both the kitchen and living room lead out to the walled pool and patio area.
From the ground floor, a wood and metal spiral staircase leads up to the first floor. Here there is a double and a twin bedroom, both with en suite bath/shower rooms. The double room is large and can easily accommodate a foldaway bed and/or cot, if required. This room also has a lovely tiled terrace leading off it and the twin room has its own balcony overlooking the pool area.
A short drive away is Ramla beach. This is Gozo’s, and arguably Malta’s, best beach. A wide stretch of red sand, it is often referred to locally as “Ramla il-Ħamra” – the Red Sandy Beach! It is a fabulous place to swim, snorkel and chill out in the sun. The area around the beach is wonderfully undeveloped, although there are a couple of cafes and a stall set back from the beach.
