Gozo Farmhouse Dhyana, Oasis of Tranquility WIFI
Serenity, now! ... No, it's not the marketing battle-cry of a Buddhist Monastery tucked away in Tibet, but it's more of a promise we like to make. And with good cause, too! ;) They say that seeing is believing. We also like to add 'Feeling' to that caveat. Set on 2500 sq metres of Land, Razzett Dhyana is a 350 year old farmhouse, that has been lovingly restored and extended over the years, retaining all its original character, with a good deal more thrown in for good measure. Gozo is the sister island of Malta, an island oasis of tranquility where even the Maltese like to 'get away from it all', for a weekend or week's break, and even longer. Greener, hillier and far more rural than the Maltese mainland, Gozo is renowned for its beautiful coastline, sea, countryside and unique diving spots. Gozo is also a goldmine of history and culture that belies its size, and a treasure trove of all that comes to mind when one thinks "Authentic Mediterranean". Gozitan villags are known to be havens of peace and quiet all year round. The village of Ghasri, outside of which Razzett Dhyana lies, is the smallest village in the Maltese islands, synonymous with rustic charm and natural calm beauty. The farmhouse just outside the little village, on the rise of a valley, a panoramic sanctuary in the open country, which even the residents of Ghasri themselves consider to be ' pretty peaceful and quiet'!.
Set in the midst of all is, the farmhouse has been divided into two distinct units. The rented part of the property is mainly downstairs (as per photos shown here) , each with its own separate entrance. Downstairs opens onto a large arched living room which can also double up as a second bedroom with a single fold out bed, a double bedroom, a very large bathroom with a sunken bath, and a large fully-equipped kitchen/dining; Outside you have a hammock area, an area with sun loungers and a BBQ with plenty of outdoor eating areas. Sheets, linen and towels are provided and maid service is included for stays of one week and over (Once weekly). - Upstairs which is larger is sometimes available. Contact us for details. Minimun stay is four nights but ask..we may have a slot to fill in..
Although not essential, having a car in Gozo it is advisable. Private parking is available at no charge for guests. Alternatively, the public transport system is quite efficient and regular, whereas the more adventurous are also known to hike and walk as well as rent out bicycles. Many of Gozo's natural and other attractions are well-within easy reach, some only as far as a leisurely 25 minute walk (but NOT in the summer noontime sun!).
And in the truest tradition of hospitality that these islands are so renowned for, we look forward to welcoming you warmly at Razzett Dhyana. See you soon!

We stayed in ana's farmhouse for a week at the end of June this year and wished we'd had longer. Gozo is a relaxed and beautiful island, very clean and safe, with a lot to explore. There are stunning churches in every town and village, delicious traditional foods to enjoy (ftiras, local cheese etc. And we quickly became addicted to the National drink, Kinnie :)) and wonderful coastal experiences to choose from: the saltpans and dramatic cliffs to the north west; the azure Window with it's deep diving spot amid beautiful natural rock formations and its Inland Sea for a peaceful swim; the breath-taking blue waters of the Blue Lagoon on Comino island; the natural beauty of San Blas bay with its sloping farmland down to the beach...
We hired bicycles to explore the island - a choice I almost came to regret on realising the terrain was much more "up and down" than we'd judged from Google Earth! However, tackling a few incredibly steep and endless coast roads afforded us some unforgettable views. Sitting at the top of the coast road out of Marsalforn, surveying the vista over the island in the evening haze of the sun, was a wonderfully peaceful and satisfying experience. But the bikes quickly became secondary once we discovered the extremely efficient and economical bus system available in Gozo. All buses go to and from the capital, Victoria, leaving at least hourly for every town and village in Gozo and for 2.6 euros per day you can go anywhere you like with a day ticket. We found this worked seamlessly for beach stop-offs, pizza pick-ups and town wanders, allowing us to create our own tours and itineraries with freedom and ease.
The farmhouse itself was perfect. Spacious, peaceful, comfortable, cool after the deliciously hot days, and beautifully furnished. Wonderful views and lovely touches like the well-stocked spice shelf in the kitchen and recipe books for cooking and ana's naturally warm hospitality and helpfulness made it extra-special. We hope to return :)

Me and my partner stayed for ten dais at Razzett Dhyana and we want to go there again and again. It is like paradise on earth and one of the most spiritual places I have been in ever. We never see the stars so bright as here and with many shooting stars. The peace is like magic and the island of Gozo is fantastic. So beautiful, historic and calm. Ana is a wonderful host and help us with everything we need or want to know. The house is superb and with much character and the land around is amazing. In Gozo everywhere is close and everythging is so beautiful as well as the people and the food and the sea. It is like being in another world. We want to go again for sure. Thank you for the wonderfull experience. Mikel and Susanna.
