Great villa for family - well located and private
We had a lovely two weeks at this villa with plenty of space for our family (3 teenagers and 2 adults). Maria is a wonderful host and even though we had to contact her a couple of times she was very quick to get back to us and sort out any issues (mainly ants - which thankfully we got rid of!) The pool is perfect and the rooms and general living space more than ample. The shower pressure wasn't very good in general, especially upstairs, however, we appreciated having an outside shower and this was used daily.
Kercem is very accessible to Victoria (we walked in 20 minutes to main square) and rest of the island for exploring. There's a lot to see on the island and just exploring the local streets is fun - the two local restaurants are great and decently priced and we used the bbq a lot, making use of local supermarkets and Lidls. As we had a hire car, we found some amazing beaches - our favourite, despite the road down to it being very steep, was Mgarr xi Xini and also San Blas. We also hired a boat for the day and went around the island which was amazing. Just beware of the jelly fish! We would definitely like to come back at some point!
Loved the area !
We just stayed at this farmhouse and had a great time! The local grocery store owner was the kindest man I have ever met we putbought groceries me thinking I could use a credit card because we hadn’t changed over to euros yet he told us take the groceries and come back when you changeover your money that would not happen in the US Maria the owner of the home was very helpful she met us and showed us to the house She sowed ius how to open and lock all the doors And when we had trouble starting the washing machine she came over Sunday to Show us, I would love to go back I would stay in this house again Gozo and its people were fantastic !
Sehr schönes Bauernhaus
Es handelt es sich um eine sehr schönes Bauernhaus mit eigenem Schwimmbad. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereite Menschen. Abends war es etwas kühl, das Haus verfügt über kein eigenes Heizungssystem. Die Räume scheinen auf den Bildern größer, als sie in Wirklichkeit sind. Aber es war für 8 Personen absolut ausreichend. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Vielen Dank an Maria und ihre Familie.
Great weekend away in an old but cosy place :)
Place is pretty much as one sees from the photos except for the living space which appears to be larger on the photos than it actually is... perfect for a family or small group of friends, if your gonna be staying in the winter make sure you make use of the heaters which the owner can provide as it can get quite chilly in these old Maltese houses... actually quite cosy once you get the temperature right... definitely a great place for summer, quite secluded in a private alley accessible only by walk... overall great stay and the host is very helpful and welcoming :) would visit again in the future :)
Wasn't as clean as we were hopeing. The large rug in the lounge was dirty . Abit cobwebby.
We had trouble finding the place as the number to phone was'nt correct & needed an additional number. Also, one of the downstairs bedrooms, was off the main building and you went outside to it seperately, but the elderly lady couldn't sleep there on her own, but went in the much smaller room downstairs. Every room you went in there were steps, and steps down into the shower room, you reallt had to be careful. I wasn't expecting the upstairs bedrooms to be reached by the stone steps from outside. ( these definatly needed a hand rand, especially when you have bad knees)
It was very spacious & a lovely big fridge. We just had breakfast, then ate out for the rest of our meals. The ferry going there and back is only €25, which is remarkable compared to the Isle Of Wight!!
It was very quiet at night, but they were builders during the day. Admittedly, you couldn't hear athing when the windows were closed.. the pool was very cold,
We are very proud for the positive remarks we receive about the farmhouse by the discerning holiday makers.
The description and photos are as it is.
It was as described in the photos. We were a family of 6 adults and one infant.
Tucked away in a very quite area, it was just what we wanted. Maria and Joe were very helpful and kind. As the weather was very hot, the pool was a very welcome bonus for us all.We left very early on the morning of our departure and did not have time to place all the rubbish outside.WE will revisit Gozo next year but we will be a much larger family group and therfeore we will need a larger Villa.
Many thanks to spare some time to write a review.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Gozo.
Maybe we meet again when you will come back to Gozo.
Kercem is a small village on the western side of Gozo.It is five mins by car from the capital city Victoria and near the sandy beach of Xlendi.Like most villages in Gozo the church which was built in the middle of the 19 th century is found in the centre of the village.Most of the inhabitants which in all total 1200 are employed for the goverment, in the services and manufacturing industry.Although few families earn their living from farming the big majority till the land as a part time job.
A suburb which is further to the south of Kercem is Santa Lucija.This community is basically rural and the number of inhabitants is about 500.This place took its name from the saint to whom the small church in the little square is dedicated.
Places of interst in Kercem:

Ghadira Ta' San Raflu.
Breath taking country side walks.
