Wheelchair-Friendly, Shell Apartment
Xlendi, a popular fishing village, is only a 10-minute drive from the island's centre on Gozo's western side. It is a bustling little swimming spot through the summertime and diving is a popular attraction. The promenade is scattered with bars and restaurants and in the wintertime, Xlendi turns into a quiet getaway, perfect for peaceful walks whilst watching the sunset.
Please note that the photo above is of the area, not of this apartment or its views.
This wheelchair-accessible apartment has a wide hallway. There is a box room and bathroom on the right-hand side and an open plan living/dining/kitchen area. From here you can step out through wide patio doors onto the internal yard. This spot would look great with plants scattered around and perhaps a hammock for relaxing on. At the back of this home is the bedroom, overlooking the front of the property.
This apartment would make a great holiday home or even serve well as a rental investment. It forms part of a project which is estimated to be in shell form by the end of December 2021.

Xlendi is a small fishing village on the island's southwest coast, surrounded by the villages of Munxar, Fontana and Kercem. It is a pebbly bay, hugged by its promenade that is scattered with restaurants, bars and hotels. It is also the best spot for early evening swims and stunning sunsets.
The village is named after a galley, ‘Shilandi’, that was wrecked along the coast. The Romans sought shelter in the port and the cliffs around the bay proved perfect for protecting their ships from the wind.
There is a beautiful valley underneath a tower built by the Grandmaster Juan de Lascaris-Castellar, which is home to many species of flora and fauna.
Xlendi’s church is dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and, every year, on the first Sunday of September, a feast is held in honour of the patron saint. Water games are played at the bay, including the traditional 'gostra', a greasy pole that the players have to walk on to catch a flag.
