Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeff

We are safely back in England (very wet and windy) and thought we would just drop you a quick line. We all enjoyed our stay in your beautiful farmhouse which was so relaxing that some of us could hardly bear to leave it. We made full use of the pool and sundecks!

I hope we left everything intact and tidy. No breakages that we know of.

We ate a lot of meals by the pool/barbecue and one item which would have been very useful would have been a tray. I know there is one under the drainer but that was doing an important job already; couldn't see another.

Pool man came regularly and the pool remained clear and clean. Got a bit worried that no one appeared to water plants, not sure how drought tolerant some of them are, so I watered everything at least once, and some things more often. We gardeners can never relax completely!

Hope you enjoy lots more bookings this summer. If Charles reminds me of anything else, I will get back in touch.

Best wishes

J Norman

Charming and full of character!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were amazed how lovely this 300 year old farmhouse was! its everything they said is was and more! Very charming and full of character spaced out over different levels. Jeff (owner) rang the villa on our first day to make sure everything was ok and if we needed anything which was nice of him. I travelled with my husband and a family of 5. The way the villa is set out was perfect for us, myself and husband taking the main bedroom upstairs and the family having the downstairs bedrooms giving us all our own space and privacy.

The décor is lovely and goes well with the traditional building, very clean and well equipped. The pool was a great pleasure to have especially as there was a heatwave while we were there!! The pool was cleaned out during our 10 day stay, and also bed linen changed with fresh towels left.

The bathrooms have a hand held shower in each over the bath but there is a full shower cubicle just across from the pool which was fine for us all. The bathroom in the main bedroom isn't very private with only a screen across the toilet so could do with a more suitable patrician. The beds are comfy and there are fans in each bedroom, but could do with a couple of extra ones especially on very hot nights which made it difficult to sleep.

The pool area was lovely surrounded by greenery and flowers, the only downside is that you had to keep clearing the flowers from the pool before jumping in! It also seemed to attract a lot of flies/mosquitoes, so take plenty of DEET spray and bite cream!! (Although I do know that due to it being exceptionally hot, it did attract more than usual)

There is a local bus service, but we found it a lot easier just to jump into our rented car rather than standing in the heat for a bus. Gozo itself is a lovely place and quieter than mainland Malta, and there are some lovely restaurants, the best one being "BROKIES" Restaurant just a short drive away. The food was exceptional and very friendly staff, well worth a visit!

We all had a fabulous time here and wouldn't hesitate to book again!!

Thank you Jeff for a wonderful holiday in your charming place!

Beautiful, old farmhouse with pleasant atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse in zebbug. The ambience is quiet and peaceful. The private pool served refreshment all day. The house is well situated as much for relaxing days as for adventures all over the island. The bus station for Victoria is just nearby. So it is absolutely no problem to travel by bus. There are "mobile groger's" nearby every morning, which sell really everything you will need. We will recommend this site to everyone who loves to spend some time in Gozo.

A rustic holiday home, full of character and charm

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 5 adults wishing to stay in a traditional Gozitan village close to family who live on the island. The house is perfectly placed on the outskirts of Zebbug and benefited from easterly countryside views over the Xaghra valley, with easy access to the local tourist resort of Marsalforn and a short distance by bus or car to the capital, Victoria. The house oozes old rustic charm, and the original features have been used to full effect - particularly in the magnificent dining room boasting fabulous stone arches and animal feeding troughs, and a large family dining table.

The bedrooms also retain their features and have open ensuite facilities to two main bedrooms. The upper level master bedroom opens out onto the middle terrace with views over the valley and which has steps either up to the top terrace or down to the poolside. Note that the ensuite bathrooms only have a bath and no shower cubicles. A separate shower room is available when needed. The third bedroom has two single beds in it and more suited to children than adults. It is also a cool bedroom whereas the others have ceiling fans to circulate the air.

The living room opens out onto the poolside and picturesque courtyard area which is well planted and cottage like in it's features.

Note that Zebbug is the highest village on the island and is known for being windy. However, the pool area is lovely, sheltered and fairly private with high walls around it. Whilst the pool isn't heated it doesn't take long to adjust to the temperature and enjoy a cool, refreshing swim or area to play for the kids. There is no shortage of sun loungers and a barbecue and outdoor dining table completes the alfresco setting.

It is recommended to hire a car for getting around on the island, and it is easy to take to the road and see the lovely villages and other areas worth visiting. 20 mins is all it takes to get from A to B in the car.

There are several top quality restaurants around the island worth visiting, and we found plenty on our travels. But if you simply want to dine at the house then Ta'Gianmarie has enough facilities to accommodate. Whilst the kitchen is small it is well equipped.

Our hosts, Jeff and Mariella were always available if there were any queries, and happy to act on requests we had.

If you want to experience the rustic charm of a 300 year old farmhouse which has been sympathetically designed throughout then this house is for you.

Zebbug is perched on two adjoining hill tops, and is the highest village above sea level in Gozo. Zebbug enjoys fantastic sea and country views, some would say the best in the whole of the Maltese islands! The village is situated some 3.5km away from Victoria, the capital of Gozo and the nearby popular seaside resort of Marsalforn is just a short distance away.
