L’Għarix Temple Retreat

Welcome to my home L’Għarix Temple Retreat on Gozo one of the Maltese islands. L’Għarix (La Reesh) means “Sanctuary” in Maltese and it is a place of healing and relaxation.

L’Gharix is a 765-year-old farmhouse and it is built from the local limestone and is said to be the second oldest house in the town. Visiting the retreat is an opportunity to see the beautiful architecture and deep history of Xagħra and the other villages on this magical island.

There are some known and unknown temples to explore, as well as lovely beaches to visit. The sunsets are memorable and many visitors experience profound healing on this island.

Guests have a choice of two bedrooms the double Rose Room and the single Orchid room. Both bedrooms have an outside entrance with a private balcony with a view of the sea. They can make use of the swimming pool, sun loungers and cave when not in use.

Unfortunately use of the kitchen and living areas is not permitted due to the small size of those spaces.

The Rose Room

Waking up in the romantic Rose Room sets the scene for a lovely day to unfold. The Rose room is air-conditioned, has a bar fridge, kettle with complimentary water, tea, and coffee.

Guests can book breakfast on the patio as well as early morning yoga or meditation. One can also enjoy a morning walk around the town with its lovely views.

Delicious Vegan lunches can be ordered during the week and enjoyed on the patio. There are many good restaurants within a few minutes’ walk or can be enjoyed in the other villages which are a short drive away. Meals can also be ordered in and enjoyed on the patio on warm summer nights.
Please note: The romantic sleighbed is not suitable for someone taller than 185 cm, as the bed is 190 cm.

The Orchid Room

Waking up in the lovely Orchid Room sets the scene for a wonderful day to unfold. The Orchid Room has air-conditioning, a bar fridge, a kettle with complimentary water, tea, and coffee.

There is also a workstation/desk with a chair, lamp, large screen and keyboard – perfect for working getaways. I often have writers stay as it is an ideal space to create.

Guests can book breakfast on the patio as well as early morning yoga or meditation. One can also enjoy a morning walk around the town with its lovely views.

L’Għarix is also my healing space where I conduct private and (small) group sessions. However these are in my healing studio in a separate part of the house, and in my cave, and will not interfere with your space.
