Wonderful, very tasteful country house near Rabat

  • 5 of 5

We spend a relaxing week in this wonderful house. The house is very beautiful and very well equipped with everything one needs. It is situated in a very calm and quiet neighbourhood. We always found a parking space close by. A small supermarket is also in walking distance.

We were welcomed very nicely, professionally and received a lot of useful information. Alex was so kind and even brought us coffee and some milk. Thanks again :-)

Two minor points that were not fully ideal: the last few meters to the house are also used by the goat farming neighbour (also a very nice man). So, the wheels of our stroller were from time to time covered with goat dirt. And we couldn't manage to lock the front door from the inside (which is probably totally unnecessary in Gozo).

All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and would indeed recommend this property to our friends and family.

Beautiful well equipped farm house

  • 5 of 5

This amazing farmhouse was ours for seven days. Rowena's directions were spot and the journey from port to "home" took 25 minutes. When we arrived we found milk, tea and coffee which given the time we arrived were most welcome. The following day we met Alex, Rowena's sister-in-law who went through the running of the property and gave us tips of what was around. We shopped at the local store and used David the local baker, both within walking distance, there are 2 bigger supermarkets in Victoria which are accessible by both foot or bus.

The house is clean, spacious and airy with a patio area and the pool is great addition.

There's a down stairs TV room with DVDs and a range of satellite channels.

We would definitely recommend the farmhouse and look forward to going back.

Beautiful, spacious and well-equipped villa in a relaxing and quiet location but close to city

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days with 3 adults and 2 teenagers and never felt we were stepping on each other's toes. The movie room was brilliant for the teenagers to escape from the sunshine. The pool was larger that I expected and entertained all of us and provided the opportunity to cool off on hot days.

We loved staying in and took advantage of the barbecue and also a very well-equipped kitchen. Also, we did occasionally walk into Victoria (takes about 20 minutes) to eat out for breakfast/dinner. We hired a car via

from the airport and we were able to go further afield to seaside restaurants etc.

Highlights of our stay were the Blue lagoon (thanks to Alex for recommending we get there at 4pm when everyone else is leaving and avoid weekends !), Arzella restaurant in Marsalforn ,the Citadella in Victoria at night and the Azure Window/internal sea (despite Window not being there any more, it's still an amazing place )

All in all a lovely villa and location

Stylish, contemporary well appointed farmhouse.

  • 5 of 5

A group of four spent a brilliant week in this wonderful house. Located near Victoria, all the sites of Gozo are a short drive away.

Great communication with the owner, we were shown around the property, and everything was explained in detail on our arrival.

Three spacious bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities. Comfortable inside seating area, although most of our visit was spent on the terrace surrounding the pool. With a well appointed kitchen, and the added bonus of a barbecue area, you have the choice on how to end your perfect day on Gozo. I cannot recommend this house and island enough!

The nearest beaches to the house are the picturesque beach village of Xlendi bustling with bars and restaurants and the Inland Sea featuring the Azure window. Both a 10 minute drive. The two sandy beaches Ramla and San Blas are a 15 minute drive.


There are no direct flights to Gozo. Air Malta, B.A, Ryan Air and Easy Jet fly to Luqa - Malta International airport. We would recommend hiring a car from the airport, we can advise car hire companies. Make the 40 minute drive, which is well signposted, to Cirkewwa ferry port where the ferries cross to Mgarr, Gozo. The ferry timetable can be viewed in Alternatively, we can arrange taxi transfers from the airport to the ferry port and advise car hire companies in Gozo.


Victoria 1 km / 5 mins drive

Xlendi Bay 2 km / 10 mins

Inland Sea, Dwejra 2 km / 10 mins

Ramla beach 7 km / 15 mins

Mgarr Harbour (ferry port) 10 km / 20 mins
