Just perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely restored house oozing character and charm. We received a great welcome from Mary and Andrew, given refreshments and a tour of the house and loads of information about Gozo. Extremely comfortable, loads of space and a great view from the rooftop terrace. In a great location for touring the island. Three very nice local restaurants only a few minutes walk away. Our six nights here went by too quickly. We really enjoyed our time here, many thanks again Mary and Andrew!

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

This property is a hidden gem in Gozo; despite very humble appearances from the road, the property offers a unique setting for a holiday. We particularly enjoyed the views from the roof top terrace and the jacuzzi. The layout of the property is unusual but all added to its character. The host were very gracious and helpful and provided a lovely meal for us one evening. A very memorable holiday.

Beautiful atmospheric home with character

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly memorable stay in Mary and Andrew's house. It was a special experience to stay in a 300-year-old converted bakery, and we enjoyed all four floors of living space - most especially the rooftop from which we could have spectacular views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Mary and Andrew welcomed us warmly upon our arrival, and provided us with a very extensive orientation with helpful information about places to visit in the area. They were attentive and gracious hosts and put a lot of energy into making sure that we were doing fine and having a good time. We would be happy to stay in their home again.

Il-Forn to znakomite miejsce!

  • 5 of 5

Oferta zgodna ze stanem faktycznym - bardzo przytulny, czysty, wspaniale urządzony dom, niezastąpione SPA świetnie uzupełnia walory domu. Pachnące ręczniki i szlafroki, powitalny poczęstunek, przyjazna atmosfera od pierwszego maila. Właściciele Mary i Andrew byli bardzo pomocni zarówno na etapie przygotowania do wyjazdu jak i podczas całego pobytu na Gozo. Wyspa zdecydowanie godna polecenia na jesienny lub wiosenny wypoczynek - znakomite widoki, pyszne jedzenie, wygodna komunikacja po wyspie.

Everything being so very close helps one to enjoy every little secluded part of the island in a short time and thus a car is not needed. And yes, the food is also great! Thank you once again and hope we'll have the pleasure hosting you both once again at "il-Forn". Take Care:)) Mary & Andrew GOOGLE TRANSLATED REVIEW: Offer in accordance with the facts - a very cozy , clean , Great furnished house , indispensable complements SPA great home values ​​.

The island definitely worth recommending for autumn or spring break - great views , delicious food, convenient communications around the island.

wonderful wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful! We spent a week and loved every minute of it. Andrew and Mary were incredible hosts and made us feel right at home. They went above and beyond in hospitality from a home cooked meal upon arrival to dropping off fresh veggies from their garden to providing excellent tourist information and helping with directions numerous times. They have a gift and take such great care of the house.We cant wait to return!

The farmhouse is situated in a small village in the north of Gozo. By car it is only five minutes away from the beaches. It is located in an alley, and it is very peaceful and quiet. In addition to the spectacular sunrise and sunset from the roof you can admire the beautiful view from the hill TA 'Gordan and the lighthouse with the valley and the deep blue sea. The historic walled town of Victoria, the Citadel, which is only 2km away, can be reached in a short time.
