A traditional 18th century village farmhouse, fully modernised in 2004. Air conditioning in all bedrooms. 4 bath/shower rooms each with its own individual hot water tank. Sun terrace, private pool, loungers, barbecue. Located in the centre of the village within yards of the main piazza. There are a very large number of food outlets within a 2km radius, ranging from pizza houses to a 5 star restaurant.
This was a beautifully presented farmhouse. We had a wonderful time and very comfortable stay. The pool was perfect! We will remember this as one of our top holidays. Well done! (Anne Rogers, USA).
Lovely. The best of the three farmhouses we have stayed in. Gave us exactly what we needed - lots of comfort for us to relax in. Many thanks (Emma and Lee Bradford, Essex, UK).
We can't fault this place! Beautifully restored and equipped. Perfect and peaceful location. Thank you very much for contributing to our wonderful holiday in Gozo (Pam and Ginny Winter, Adelaide, South Australia.)
On arrival there were a few issues - BBQ was dirty and had no gas, dishwasher unusable, pool light broken, door handles broken. However on contacting the owner the things that could be sorted straight away were sorted. Air conditioning is perfect. The villa pool is small - perfect for cooling off but not really ideal for older children to play/race etc. Villa doesn't get full sun until around 1pm but sun still very strong well past 6pm. Two local shops very well stocked. We travelled around by taxi and bus. I don't think walking into Xlendi or Victoria is an option if travelling with children or during the day as far too hot so therefore nowhere to eat within walking distance. Would advise using earplugs - if the neighbour's dog doesn't wake you up at 5.30 then the church bells will at 6am.

The local beach is Xlendi a 5 minute ride away. This was/is a small fishing village with many restaurants. The clear seas are excellent for swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving. Gozo has many qualified dive schools operating in many languages. As the island is only 15km long by 8km across there are many beaches to suit all interest close by. Malta and Gozo were rated the third (3rd) best scuba dive site in the world in 2008 by the USA Scuba Magazine. (1st Moldives; 2nd Egypt; 3rd Malta/Gozo)
The international airport is in Malta, it is a 40 minute drive to the ferry to Gozo, ferry crossing time is 25 minutes and then a 10 minute drive to Munxar. Taxi from and to the airport can be arranged through the local Gozo agents at a very reasonable price. There is a bus stop in the piazza direct to the bus station from where buses run to all points on the island. Car, motor scooter and mountain bikes can be hired from many reliable operators.
Victoria is the capital of Gozo and is approximately in the centre of the island. The cittadella is the prominent feature with museums, craft exhibits and small cafes. There are many places of interest within walking distance of the farmhouse but transport of some kind is recommended in order to get the most out of your visit to the island.
There is a very friendly store in the piazza and a further local store very close. In addition traders come into the piazza every day with fresh produce. There are a very large number of food outlets within a 2 km radius, ranging from pizza houses to 5 star restaurant. The main village festa reaches its climax on the last weekend in May. Gozo is an ideal holiday destination for hikers and mountain bikers as there are many places of interest for them to choose from on a daily basis.
Gozo is also the heart of scuba diving with dives ranging from beginner to specialist dives only for the very experienced. There are many shore based dives as well as boat dives all of which will be readily arranged through any of the many dive schools.
