My wife and I stayed for just under a week at this beautiful property. We were greeted at the airport by Raymond, the owner, who took the trouble to wait whilst we got our hire car and then "led us" to his property.

The villa is spacious, very well equipped and charming; if anything, the photographs on this site do not do it justice.

It is in an excellent, quiet location close to the Blue Grotto but within a 10-15 minute drive of key places such as Valetta, Mdina and St Juliens for a night out.

Raymond gave us a very warm, friendly welcome, provided us tips and advice and left us alone for the rest of the stay which was just right. There are numerous reviews in his visitors book, all of which are very positive demonstrating this was not just a one off.

Overall, we had a lovely, relaxing break and we would strongly recommend this villa to anyone.

Beautiful villa - full of rustic charm

Il Kiostro is a beautiful villa, full of authentic Maltese charm. The villa is bigger than we imagined with lots of lovely 'hidden' spaces from the spiral staircase to the balconies and terraces. We were a family of 5 and never felt on top of each other; there was always somewhere to escape to read or relax!
The villa is in the centre of Zurrieq, a typical Maltese town which maintains its strong traditions and makes you feel that you are part of the 'real' Malta. A car is important if you want to explore further afield, however the bus service was excellent too. Our daughter has coeliac disease and has to eat a strict gluten free diet; we were over the moon to discover the huge range of gluten free products available in the supermarket 'Pavi' a short drive away), more than we have ever seen here in the UK! Restaurants and bars can be found a short drive away in the Blue Grotto and Valatta as well as all the other tourist destinations in Malta. We didn't eat out often as the BBQ next to pool was perfect for al fresco dining and the villa was so charming we didn't feel the need to venture out night after night.
Raymond, the owner was on hand if we ever needed him and always happy to help - when one of our party needed a doctor he arranged it all straight away. He also met us at the airport which was a great start to our holiday.
We stayed during the festival season, where the Maltese celebrate their Saints with a feast. This meant that there was a real celebratory atmosphere - the Maltese love their fireworks!
We would definitely go back to Il Kiostro and would recommend it to anyone who wants a true taste of Malta.
Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your comments, i am happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to meet you all again in the near future.
Your host,
Raymond.

Raymond,

We are now from yesterday evening in our house in Vieille-Eglise en Yvelines.
Every thing works well from your house to our.
We would like, my brother, my sister-in law, my wife and I, to tell you how we were lucky to rent your house.
It was exactly the house what we expect to have.
The location in Zurriecq, the volume of the rooms, theirs design, and the fact that the bedrooms in the house are isolated each one from each others, It’s give to the house around the swimming poo,l a strong impression of lot of space.
Thank you fot the “design magazin”.
We also enjoy your kindness, your affordability and availabilty, which really help us to have a better and a true understanding of every thing about Malta.

Once again, Raymond, Thank you

Raymond hi,

Here we are home again – enjoying our photos and recommending Malta and your lovely home to all our friends.

I tried to put my review on your site but had trouble with the password and it would not let me do it. Maybe you can put this review on your site for me:-



We could not have found a more perfect place to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday together with children and grandchildren. The beautifully renovated farmhouse was not only spacious but spread out in such a way that each couple had private space and the children could run freely without disturbing anyone. While the adults appreciated the local flavor of the tasteful furnishings and the well appointed kitchen, the children loved exploring the nooks and crannies, spiral staircase and secret patios, as well as the attractive pool. The warm hospitality of our host, Raymond, was replicated by all the local people we met. Zurrieq is a delightful way of getting to know Malta without the tourist trappings.

We had a truly wonderful holiday, thank you Raymond from all of us,

Nomi, George, Josh, Lisa, Oren, Veneta, Yoan, Aviv, Lily Rose

The property is located about 200mt. off the main village square. Zurrieq village is 1 kilometer away from the famous blue grotto ( sea side ).A typical old maltese village full of character.

?urrieq is the largest village in the southern area, and one of the original medieval parishes. Much of the village survives from the time before the arrival of the Knights and provides an insight into pre-baroque Malta. The village is near some spectacular coastline - the picturesque, tiny harbour of Wied i?-?urrieq at the end of a rugged valley. From the harbour, you can take a short boat trip to the Blue Grotto, a series of natural, sea-level caves, and a local beauty spot. ?urrieq and the surrounding area are rich in archaeological and historic sites, including several ancient chapels, a Roman tower, Punic tombs and a strange, free-standing room with an Egyptian cornice - possibly part of a temple of Melqart mentioned by Ptolemy, the 2nd century Greek geographer and astronomer.

Other Activities: the island itself is full of Historic places dating back to prehistoric ages.
