Maltese farmhouse with pool

Il-Kiostro is a historic 350 year old expertly converted Maltese farmhouse, retaining all its original features such as “Xorok”, “Kileb”, arches, nooks, niches, Maltese flagstones and birth rooms. Professor Stefano Zerafa, a Maltese academic of the 1800’s and the person who identified the Maltese national plant “Widnet il-Bahar” as endemic to Malta, lived in this house. This home is impeccably furnished to high standards with 3 guest bedrooms all with an en-suite shower, 2 double sofa beds with superior memory foam mattress in the living room, a large hall with a sitting and a dining area, a picturesque authentic mill room that serves as living quarters, a beautiful garden with pool and Jacuzzi, a lovely sun terrace, an ‘al fresco’ dining and BBQ area and an internal yard which contains a herb garden.
