Description

My home is a high end 17th century farmhouse located on the edge of the historic village of San Lawrenz in Gozo with breathtaking open sea views. You’ll love my home because of the unique artistic conversion and attention to detail. I provide top quality linens tableware and a welcome hamper to ensure your experience of a boutique farmhouse. Inspired by the famous Harry Potter books, this is a home of colour, whimsy and joy, where holiday memories are made and never fade. As an artist, the homes I have created around the world have always been havens of colour and imagination. I design homes to be practical, yet very theatrical, and this is the foundation of the design behind my latest home, Diagon Alley, which will take you into a world of fantasy and creativity. Harry Potter’s perfect holiday home in the Med! Diagon Alley is one of the oldest farmhouses tucked away in a small alley on the seaside edge of San Lawrenz in the beautiful Westside of Gozo. It is a large house flowing over four floors with different entertainment paces, catering for all your comforts throughout the day and the year. Meters thick stone walls keep this house cool during summer afternoons and cozy warm during winter. At the house I will provided you with a guide to explain in detail all the local amenities, attractions, restaurants and activities. The house has undergone a complete restoration in summer 2017 to become an exclusive and quaint holiday home. Every room will play with your imagination. Whimsical surroundings are what makes this home feel young, playful and so much more alive. When you meander from room to room, the changing colours and light will make you smile. Diagon Alley offers an atmosphere of Mediterranean romance and inspiration, colour and joy, where holiday memories are made … and never fade. The entrance leads you into the hallway facing a beautiful central courtyard through glass doors. This south facing courtyard is dotted with bistro tables and chairs to follow or shade from the sun. The courtyard gives access to all the rooms downstairs, to the Leaky Cauldron grotto swimming pool as well as the upper floors. Blue and white Mediterranean tiling combined with bright yellow woodwork set the holiday mood for the entire house. Back in the entrance, to the right, into the lounge, to the left, into the Severus Snape ensuite bedroom or via the Victorian spiral staircase to the upstairs bedrooms. The arched lounge has access and Windows into the courtyard and another window onto the alley. It is fitted with comfortable club chairs and sofas. Cable tv and wifi are also available here. At the end of the lounge and up 4 steps through a very large arch you enter the dining area leading into the main kitchen. Here the ceilings are high and the drama of a historic farmhouse can be found in all the details of the stonework. The dining table sits eight under a dramatic resin antler chandelier. Beautiful tableware continue the quaint experience. The kitchen too has access directly onto the central courtyard. It has been equipped with a double ceramic sink, a dishwasher, a large fridge freezer, a second fridge and a smeg cooker. A large split system air conditioning unit and a ceiling fan for ultimate comfort. Every room of this house is fitted with split air conditioning to cool or heat depending on the season. We also installed a wood burner in the lounge for that extra touch of extra romance. Back in the courtyard we go down into the Leaky Cauldon. This underground level boasts unaltered historic featured, arches, meter thick stone walls and mystery. Here is Dumbledore’s bedroom with its window into the courtyard and the entrance to the fantastic arched grotto pool. The pool is kept at 27c all year long for optimal holiday fun. The swimming pool pump has been installed with the latest technology of salt based filtration system which is ecological and far healthier than the usual chlorine type of filtering systems. The filters work on a timer and get filtered 3 times daily. The skimmers are linked to those timers and create a stunning rippling atmosphere inside the cave. Upstairs on the first floor the stonework is more delicate, windows are large, the colours are flooded with light and the ceilings are very high. Here are the Minerva McGonagal and the Aurora Sinistra bedrooms. Both are ensuite and have their individual balconies overlooking the courtyard. All our beds in this house are double and fitted with thick spring mattresses for ultimate comfort. Luxurious fine Egyptian sateen cotton bedding. Our bathrooms are fitted with dramatic Mediterranean tile work that offset the bespoke wooden vanities to merge history with modern comfort. Brushed cotton bath sheet sets complement the experience of luxury. On the 2nd floor we have a second kitchen fitted with a fridge and 8kg washing machine, a tumble dryer, kettle and tableware.
