We are an English family who have visited Gozo every year since 1976. With family also living on the island since 1986, the island is a home for us, our 3 boys and many friends.

Clean, cosy, authentic in a friendly neighbourhood
We spent a very comfortable week with our two adult children. There was plenty of room for all of us, with lots of space to sit, bathrooms, books, guidebooks etc. The welcome pack was much appreciated (although we struggled to find capsules to fit the coffee machine when we needed more).
It was very useful to be so close to a bus stop as we used the bus most days in order to get to different parts of the island for some long walks (good walking guides in the farmhouse). Meanwhile our children enjoyed walking up and down most days to Ramla Bay, rewarding themselves with the excellent ice cream sold by the van there.
The information sent to us before our arrival was helpful, although it would have been useful to have had some foolproof instructions on how to walk from the village square to the property (as well as the driving instructions from the ferry). We arrived in Mgarr after a very early morning flight and the friendly taxi driver took us to the square to have lunch because it was too early to check in. He confidently pointed out the direction we needed to walk to find where we were staying, but it turned out to be the opposite direction. It took us about an hour to find our way there, eventually with the help of Carmen the housekeeper. Once we were less sleep-deprived we realised it was actually a really easy 15-20 minute walk in almost a straight line. We felt, briefly, that we were part of the local community, having happened upon the lampuki festival held just down the street on our first night, and with nightly exchanges of "good evening" with the locals we encountered sitting out as we walked to and from the square.
Both the farmhouse and the island were fantastic and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others, especially anyone with adult children.
Beautiful house, full of character
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house has been very tastefully restored and is constructed of lovely Gozo stone. It would not however be suitable for anyone with mobility problems due to the spiral staircase. It is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. On our arrival there was a very handy welcome pack...especially the bottle of wine! The locals are warm and friendly. Gozo is a small island so you are never very far from anywhere but personally I would recommend having a car as you can see so much more than on any organised tours/sightseeing buses. We would have no hesitation in recommending it.
A lovely holiday home.
A beautiful property just as you see in the photographs.
Everything of a high quality and standard. The house is actually a credit to the owners. The house was immaculately clean on arrival. Probably one of the best I have stayed in over many years of holiday home rentals.
We experienced noise issues at this property . The owner was happy to refund us so we moved for the remainder of our holiday to a quieter locality.
Also be aware the house has a spiral staircase which won't be suitable for young children or mobility issues.
Lovely Gozo house. The perfect getaway.
The house was tastefully restored and quirky. Comfortable and cozy. Good location, within easy walking distance of Xaghra Square. The property owner was helpful and efficient and the lady who looks after the house in Gozo was on hand if we needed anything. There was a welcome pack, including wine, waiting for us when we arrived. Over all, a wonderful and restful holiday.
A beautiful apartment in an excellent location
The apartment has been restored to a very high standard, and the layout is unusual but attractive. The living room with kitchen is cool with thick walls keeping the heat of the day outside. The staircase is quite steeply spiralled and so might be a factor for some people. The upstairs is an outdoor corridor with rooms leading off, and they are also very stylish. All rooms come with air con, which we did not need to use. Everything has a modern feel, but set in an old building that has real character.
The location is excellent with easy walks to a beautiful beach (Ramla) and the village square has a selection of restaurants. A car helps with access to the island, but is not essential as the bus service is frequent.
Overall, a very calm and relaxing setting for a great holiday.
Our third stay in this gorgeous house.
Our third stay in this gorgeous house. Thoroughly enjoyed it, as always. Close to the beach & a local shop. (Its only down side for us has always been the tree that blocks the view from the terrace down to Ramla!) New owners very obliging & very quick to provide the assistance we needed with a couple of technical hitches. Would definitely stay again.
