Gozo Farmhouses & Traditional Houses in Malta

Farmhouses in Gozo and Houses of Character in Malta are typically found in the older villages of the Maltese Islands.  A farmhouse is a property that has been built hundreds of years ago and usually include traditional features such as archways, flagstones, high ceiling, cellars, central courtyards which in most cases have been modernised to include a pool and outdoor space. A farmhouse in technical terms means the main house of a farm which served as a residence for local farmers working on adjacent lands. Many local farmhouses were combined with space for their animals with many rooms usually surrounding a central courtyard. Over the years these properties have of course been modernised and some properties are truly magnificent, which make them and the smaller local houses of character, architectural gems of Gozo and Malta.

So What is the difference between a farmhouse and a villa ? Firstly it is the architecture, farmhouses have certain features which you will not find in a holiday villa in Malta, secondly it is the type of stone used to build these properties, farmhouses are built out of local limestone, whilst villas may be built in cemenet bricks, thirdly it is the locality where farmhouses are found, more often than not farmhouses are found in the older and more rural villages, like Zurrieq, Zejtun, Zebbug, Bidnija & Mgarr whilst villas are found in the seaside and more modern areas of Malta, such as Mellieha, Sliema & St Julians.
