Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, i just wanted to say a big thank you for an amazing holiday. Your farmhouse was lovely and the pool was perfect! Gozo is an amazing place with lovely frinedly people. Tony was very helpful and Joe at no38 was really nice, giving my daughter the best surprise ever when she woke to find his horse tied up outside.



Thanks again for a wonderful time

Beautiful farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous farmhouse for a week in August. From the moment I contacted the owner, Noel, regarding availability, until after we returned home, the level of service he provided was fantastic. He replied promptly to all emails and made the booking and payment process very easy and stress free.

We were met on arrival by Toni, the caretaker, who showed us around the house and gave us a few tips on places to visit in Gozo. I would recommend hiring a car as buses didn't seem to run as frequently as in Malta and you wouldn't really be able to walk to the places of interest. Gozo is so small that nowhere was more than a 15-20 minute drive away.

The house is located in the quiet village of Munxar and there is a little grocery shop just a few minutes walk away. Lidl is about a 5 minute drive away in Victoria.

The farmhouse is very well maintained and there is enough space for 2 families to share. There are 2 large bedrooms upstairs, each with their own bathroom and 1 bedroom downstairs, again with its own bathroom. There is also an extra bathroom downstairs too.

The pool is a great size and not at all overlooked and it was lovely to be able to have a refreshing swim in the August heat. The kids were sometimes already in at 9am! The garden is also beautifully maintained and the visiting cats were a bonus.

Unfortunately the house doesn't have air-conditioning in all rooms. The main bedroom does, and we didn't realise this, but it can be used on paying a small supplement. However, during a heatwave when the temperature was very high even at night, (around 30 degrees), the fans and leaving all doors and windows open is just not enough to keep you cool.

Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay and one which I would highly recommend for a holiday in Gozo.

What a gem!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had staying in this beautiful farmhouse on Gozo. It was all we hoped for and more. The house itself was fab, bedrooms all ensuite and especially the main bedroom with its own sun terrace. The pool area with all its flowers and plants was to die for and so well maintained. We rang Marios car hire ( no. from Noel) before we went and they provided transfers to and from Luqa making it so easy and at a very reasonable cost and we hired a car through them as well which they dropped off and collected from the farmhouse, no paperwork or waiting around at the airport. You must go to Xlendi, what a beautiful place for an evening meal by the water, only 5 mins by car, we walked to it and got a cab back!! Gozo is beautiful, Ramla beach is a must for a swim. The salt pans were extraordinary, don't look for the Azure window , it had fallen a month before we arrived! The Citadel in Victoria was beautiful and go into as many churches as you have time for, they are amazing. Ladies must cover their shoulders as a mark of respect so bring a scarf or cardi to wear before you go in. We went to Valetta (Malta Capital) for a day and is also beautiful. St Johns Co Cathedral is breathtaking.

Thank you Noel for your wonderful house and thanks to Toni and to Jo the lovely farmer who gave us a glimpse of how the Maltese farmers spend their days. What a treat. The Maltese people are wonderful and we were bowled over by the hospitality and friendliness. What a gem of a place.

Amazing luxury farmhouse..just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this idyllic farmhouse for 6 days and simply loved every minute. The house had everything you could possibly need for an amazing , relaxing holiday. The pool was perfect..big, great temperature and a great way to cool down in July weather.

The house is ideally located with supermarket and bus stop just a couple of mins walk. Great base to explore the amazing island of Gozo. I honestly can't praise it highly enough..photographs don't even do this house justice..it is even more beautiful in real life!! Jaw dropping from the minute you open the door. The owner , Noel, was extremely helpful and made booking a breeze! Thank you for everything. Neighbours especially Joe are lovely people and so friendly..Tony called on first day and offered lots of useful advice regarding places of interest and transport etc. Can't wait to go back next year x

Simply Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our short stay in this wonderful big farmhouse/villa and would like to say a big “thank you” to the owner and all who made our stay so special.

Everything was perfect and to be honest far exceeded our expectations. The bedrooms and ensuites/wet room are fabulous as is everything about this place.

Of course Gozo, the resort of Xlendi and the summer weather are a great combination.

On arrival Toni did a grand job in meeting, welcoming and advising us about the island.

We are already planning to visit again. So until next time.... with very many thanks.

Heavenly peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the property do not do it justice - Tony met us with the keys and our jaws dropped as we went through the door, he was very helpful, showed us on the map places of interest, places to eat and local festivals. We met the gardener twice, nice friendly local chap. The owner Noel was very helpful, answering our many questions before we travelled. The house is amazing and very spacious, large well equipped kitchen, lots of bathrooms. We spent a lot of time around the pool, in the afternoon and also in the evenings with a glass of wine. There is a small supermarket in walking distance which has everything you could need. We hired a car at the airport, managed to negotiate the ferry to Gozo very easily. Malta looked very built up and over commercialised so we didn't bother visiting. Gozo is set back in time and unspoilt. We heard the horror stories about driving in Malta/Gozo but we needn't have worried it was fine. We found a beautiful beach - Ramla which was fairly quiet, just a few umbrellas scattered but not ten deep as seen driving through Malta. We spent a lot of time at Xlendi - what a beautiful bay, several restaurants for all tastes, try dives, boat hire, pedaloes, snorkelling, fabulous ice cream. Visitied Azures Window, lovely cove for swimming, snorkelling. The weather was fantastic - very hot. Even with the children with us, this was probably one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had and we will definitely go back again one day - hopefully to this house.

Beautful & Relaxing in the heart of the Country

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 1 week in April and I just had to write a review to let you know what a wonderful house this is.

It really is something special and the Owner spared no expense in its renovation.

Set amongst farms you wake up to the cock crowing in the early Morning!

2 shops within walking distance and xlendi bay 5 mins by car down the road.

Beautiful garden & swimming pool everything you need for a wonderful holiday - you wont be disappointed.

GOZO IS AN EXPERIENCE! This quiet Maltese island is only 9 miles by 5, standing south of Sicily in the heart of the Med. The 13 villages with fort-like limestone buildings are all dominated by large churches. Munxar is a quiet village, minutes drive away from the sea at Xlendi Bay with its restaurants, boats & scuba diving. Victoria, the capital boasts a wonderful citadel, daily market, shops, fish vendor and busy cafes. The history of Gozo from its prehistoric temples, attacks by the Turks and Arabs, through French and British rule, together with its geological features makes this island a fascinating holiday destination.
