Quirky Apartment In Xewkija
Not far from the village square is this two-bedroom apartment. Xewkija is not only Gozo's oldest village, but it is known for its church, the Rotunda of Xewkija. The church's dome is the highest in Gozo and the third-highest unsupported dome in the world.
The image above is of the area, not of this maisonette or its views.
This quirkily shaped apartment starts off with a wide and short hallway leading to the living/dining/kitchen area. This cosy space will open onto a balcony overlooking the front of the property. To the left of the living room will be the first bedroom, or perhaps a cosy TV room if the new owners wish, leaving more space for the dining and kitchen area.
At the back of the dining area is the main bedroom with an en-suite. Between the bedrooms and past the main bathroom is a short hallway leading to a room being proposed as a study or an office. This space could also serve nicely as a bedroom, nursery or playroom.
This apartment forms part of a project which is estimated to be in shell form by the end of December 2021 and completely finished by June 2022. Also available are optional garages.

Xewkija, Gozo’s oldest village, is located between Ghajnsielem and the capital city. It is a quiet and laid-back village.
The village’s name is derived from the Maltese word “Xewk”, meaning "thistles", suggesting the area was once covered in them. Thistles are also Xewkija’s emblem.
Xewkija is known for its church, the Rotunda of Xewkija. It is the Seat of the Knights of the Order of St. John and was built from Maltese stone by local masons and craftsmen. It is not only the largest dome in Gozo, but one of the largest in the world, and this dome dominates the village.
Also interesting in Xewkija are the cart ruts coming from Borg Gharib, Mgarr ix-Xini, Ta' Cenc and Tas-Salvatur. Xewkija’s closet bay is Mgarr ix-Xini, one of Gozo’s most beautiful spots.
