Complete perfection

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in several holiday homes over the years and also in gozo but not a patch on this beautiful farmhouse. We could not fault anything and i can tell you i would find one if there was one. Ive had bad health the last few years and i can honestly say im revived in energy and happiness. We didn't want to leave this wonderful haven. There is everything you could possibly need or want there. The local area is so friendly and quite with a lovely shop a walk away. Stunning views across the way and the church bells adding to the serenity. Pool is amazing and water was perfect on the hot days. Best hot tub ive ever been in and ive been in lots ! . Massimo you have every right to be proud of what you have achieved and must make you very happy knowing you make everyone feel ecstatic to be there. Thank you once again as this visit will stay with us for ever. Will always love malta and gozo and keep returning.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

A stunning location, spacious property (the photos don't do it enough justice), exceptionally clean and well kitted out with everything you'll need. The decor and detail is superb.

Add to this the welcome and attentiveness received from Massimo, which made our stay a wonderful experience.

stukje hemel op aarde

  • 5 of 5

Wat een heerlijk huis ... voorziet in alle gemakken. Super lokatie op een fantastisch eiland. Op loopafstand van Victoria en van Xlendi. De gastheer zorgt ervoor dat U zich meteen thuis voelt. De faciliteiten in het farmhouse zijn helemaal geweldig. Het zwembad en de jacuzzi onmisbaar, de prachtige slaapkamers groot genoeg en de volledig ingerichte keuken helemaal top! Wij verbleven met 4 volwassenen en 4 kinderen in de leeftijd van 17 tot 10. Tien dagen lang niet één reden om te klagen gehad. Schoonmaak zwembad en farmhouse perfect! Interieur en meubels zijn in stijl gehouden van het farmhouse. Parkeerplaatsen voor twee auto's, meer dan genoeg badkamers en toiletten. Gelegen in een rustig, landelijk dorpje waar een heerlijke sfeer hangt. Ideaal voor gezin met kinderen, 10 personen kunnen makkelijk gehuisvest worden zonder het gevoel te hebben dat je boven op elkaar zit. Kippen-, geiten- en vogelgeluiden overheersen de soms idyllische stilte ... je waant je bij het zwembad in het zonnetje echt in een stukje hemel op aarde. Een betere lokatie is op Gozo niet te vinden!

The absolute best accommodation in Gozo ... superb facilities, great host, wonderful swimming pool and jacuzzi, fantastic location close to Victoria and Xlendi for great food and entertainment. If you are looking for a piece of heaven on earth ... this is the place to go!! We stayed with four adults and four kids aged 10 to 17 and had a blast. Very spacious, endless bathrooms and toilets, fully equipped kitchen (althought dinner at the Boat House in Xlendi is a must). The sounds of the animals in the surrounding farms, the birds flying around, the great pool and jacuzzi, the view ... oh my god, the view! Overlooking the valley. We loved every minute of staying at this place ... Two cars can park indoors ... wifi ... satellite tv ... a great selection of kitchenware and equipment ... beautifull furniture ... great beds ... cleaning of the pool and jacuzzi and the farmhouse are done profesionally ... the view ... the view! Location in Munxar is brilliant, 20 minutes walk to the coastal, pretty little village Xlendi which hosts great restaurants. This is the place to go if you are looking for a little piece of heaven on earth!!!!!!!!

Lovely rural farmhouse with gorgeous pool and view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Gozo and we chose this property for it's wonderful location in a sleepy village between Xlendi Bay and Fontana. A stroll down the hill leads to the road between the sea and Victoria and then both can be reached in 15 minutes on foot or a few minutes by bus. There are beautiful circular walks in all directions and we chose to hire a car for one day to go further afield.

The property is spacious and comfortable with a gorgeous pool, numerous terraces and an amazing view over the lush greenery of the valley in the spring sunshine.The internal courtyard and terrace is a lovely sheltered spot and the hot tub room is an amazing bonus. The village has a well stocked shop for basic needs.

Massimo made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We had a brilliant holiday and I have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful farmhouse .

Dar is-Saqwi is an idyll, we came for a week and kept prolonging our stay, the house is an amazing and tasteful combination of old and new, the location almost perfect, Nice beds, linens and bathrooms, a fantastic jacuzzi room and a decent kitchen. The photographs do it justice, it is that lovely! Munxar is very quiet (apart from the odd cock and goat), rustic and sleepy but it's a nice walk to Xlendi bay (the best swimming and sunset spot on the island) and a stroll to Rabat for food and drinks. The host, Massimo, is a lovely guy and couldn't be more helpful and friendly. I regret writing in such glowing terms that I'll have to compete for future bookings but I can't help it. 6 stars!

Car: recommended

The peaceful village of Munxar lies to the south of the island of Gozo. Munxar is very close to the capital Victoria and has a population of about 1019 people. This village offers spectacular imagery such as Xlendi valley, Ghancija valley and Bardan cliffs. Also worth mentioning are the remnants of a prehistoric temple at Ta' Marziena.

The Parish Church, a small baroque temple is dedicated to St. Paul. The village feast falls on the 10th of February which is also a public, national holiday. However the outside festivities are celebrated on the third Sunday of each May. A swift ten-minute country walk along Ras il-Bajjada Road or Victoria Road takes you to Xlendi Bay, a very popular tourist resort. Wedged between majestic cliffs, this fishing village is one of the most picturesque spots on the island.
