Gharb Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Authentic 4 bedrooms with private pool

This centuries old property compliments the charm of the rural village of Gharb where it is situated, which is a gem in itself with its quaint streets, a splendid church and exceptional country walks.

Converted to a high standard, it still retains rare features of when the property was a working farmhouse including its own arched mill-room, now a beautifully furbished living space, complete with a stone inbuilt fireplace. A separate kitchen and dining area also retains the ambiance of times gone by when it was the heart and centre of rural family life.

The old back garden has been turned into a spacious sun lounge and sizeable pool, with a build in BBQ area to one side, ideal for a summer evening meal.

The property sleeps 8, in four rustically furnished bedrooms (one en-suite) on the first floor, all of which retain old original features, some with arches spanning the room and others with stone roof side supports, quite rare to find in present day Gozo. The bedrooms are accessible through a wide airy corridor overlooking the pool area, again an old feature which takes you back centuries and gives the place a serene and cool ambiance. This floor is also service with two separate shower rooms.

Facilities include a well equipped kitchen, flat TV, DVD and free Wifi, while the bedrooms enjoy air conditioning on a pay as you go basis.

We also can provide you transport for your arrival as follows, choose from the following 2 options:

1. Direct transfers from Malta Airport to property and vice versa; our driver will be waiting for you at Airport arrival gate holding a sign with your name on it. The driver will accompany you all the way to property including the ferry crossing to Gozo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our first impression on entering this property was "wow" - although the property looked beautiful on the website, it was even better than we expected. It is HUGE! It has a very interesting lay-out, lots of lovely, historic features and a large, sunny pool and garden. The booking with the Baron Group was fast and seamless with a great welcome - with strict instructions to call the rep. at any time should we require anything at all, day or night - and lots of tips on how best to enjoy our stay on Gozo. I would definitely use this company again and can't recommend them, or the property, highly enough. Thank you for everything.

Impressive property

  • 4 of 5
We had a family holiday in the Ponderosa for a week in May. On arrival the property had that wow factor. There were seven adults and a child in our party and this property was big enough that we were not in each others pockets. The area is very quite, except when the honkers come in the mornings!! I would advise that you hire a car as Victoria is a 15 minute drive away. There is a couple of local shops which you can walk to however they are 15 minutes away.
On arrival we went for a "big shop" which we did in the new Lidl's. They have everything you would need. Your basics, bread and milk you can get in the local shop. We ate out twice while in Gozo. They were in Marsalforn. The first was called Arzella, which had a lovely spot in the bay, the food was very good and worth a visit. The other was called smugglers Cave. The food was again very good and the owner Vincent was very nice and made sure we all enjoyed. He also gave me a bottle of wine on leaving as it was my birthday. Both were very reasonable on prices.
I would recommend this property and area for families. We all had a lovely holiday.

A very nice Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
Larger than portrayed in the description; well fitted out; plenty of outdoor space, the pool needed maintenance during the week it was green by the end of the week! A shame that the downstairs bedroom was so far away from the cloakroom; would be helpful if there was clearer information of the layout of rooms; info said sofa bed in fact it was a proper bed; upstairs one room was shown having 3 single beds only had two. When sharing with other families this information is important. Excellent having fly screens on the windows and some doors. Clean throughout; we would definitely go again. Some good restaurants in the area; don't recommend the one in the village,good food in Marsalforn and nearby Xlendi. Good local shops didn't have to go to Victoria.
The farmhouse was in a very quiet location and not overlooked.Would recommend.

Gharb village lies in the West of the Island. It started life as a small hamlet centuries ago. The decorated and sculpted stone balconies found in the village square witness its ancient roots. Approximately 1266 people live in the village. Gharb village is surrounded by two small villages namely San Lawrenz and Ghasri. The baroque church is found in the village square. Countryside walks are ideal for visitors to explore during spring and autumn. Places of interest in the village are the folklore museum, Crafts village, San Dimitri chapel, Taz-Zejt Chapel, Ta' Pinu Shrine, and the window 'Tal-Mielah'.
