Overview

About the property

Villa in San Lawrenz, Island of Gozo (Malta) - Peaceful, Private Pool, Views

Situated in the small tranquil village of San Lawrenz, on the Island of Gozo, this marvelous villa/ farmhouse is truly one of a kind. The property, acquired in 2004, was converted from its derelict state, to a villa / farmhouse of the highest standard, keeping the property’s original and traditional charm whilst responding to modern needs. The intention was and will always be, to offer those travelers looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday on the magical Island of Gozo, a home away from home.

Tal-Bjar villa / farmhouse consists of 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8+), all enjoying an en-suite bathroom/ shower room . All 4 bedrooms come equipped with air-conditioners that function on a pay- per- use card system. All rooms are flooded with natural light and are very airy.

The villa / farmhouse boasts stunning sea and country views, right from the pool deck, kitchen and 3 of its 4 bedrooms. Furthermore, the early and late summer months offer spectacular sunsets right opposite these viewpoints. The fully equipped spacious kitchen with island and living room conveniently overlook the private pool, outdoor dining and BBQ area. The indoor dining area, suitably just off the kitchen, comfortably sits 8 people. For further practicality, there is a spare toilet both inside and next to pool. The outdoors consists of a good sized private overflow pool with an open Jacuzzi, BBQ, a large teak outdoor dining table and teak loungers, adequate shading and pool shower.

Moreover, the villa/ farmhouse is located just a short walk/ drive away from Gozo’s most popular attraction, the Azure Window at Dwejra bay. The property is handily also within walking distance from minimarkets and restaurants.

Great emphasis is placed on the property’s cleanliness when handed over and that the guests are also attended to appropriately during their stay. The owners choose to personally welcome guests themselves and show them around the house on arrival.

The property undergoes thorough maintenance during the lesser busy periods, and improvements are made on a yearly basis in order to continue to raise the quality of the time that guests choose to spend at Tal-Bjar.

Tal-Bjar Villa/ Farmhouse is accredited by the Malta Tourism Authority.

A very lovely farm house stunning views out over the fields to the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely farm house well maintained and with good facilities. It is situated on the edge of St. Lawernz but only a 5 minute walk back to the town square. The garden and pool as superb and have the sun all day. We will be coming back.

Relaxation away from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful 14 nights has been spent in Gozo, in this delightful farmhouse. We were a party of 5 adults, which included our two children, well a 19 & 22 years, so adults really.

The description on the website is spot on, we found the villa to be clean, have everything we needed. The stunning views of the sea were wonderful, particularly watching the beautiful sunset.

The swimming pool came into its own with the hot temperatures. The location is perfect, Gozo has so much to offer. There is a restaurant within walking distance, a small supermarket too. Joe was very helpful throughout our arrival, stay & departure, nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend this Farmhouse. Many thanks Joe.

Pristine and Pretty Villa in a quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for our family holiday with 4 teenagers. The house is lovely; clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished and with every convenience. There was plenty of space for us all to spread out, including a generous patio area around the pool, and a big outdoor dining table - all a bonus if you are a group of adults. The pool itself was beautifully clean and deep enough that it remained refreshingly cool in the heat of the sun. The location is quiet, the views lovely (especially at sunset), and the villa is within walking distance of the small supermarket and bars / restaurants in San Lawrenz. Dwerja and the Inland Sea are a short drive away. Joe provided excellent customer service, even making the round trip from Malta just to replace the wifi router - it seemed that nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this property to others.
