Converted to a high standard, it still retains rare features of when the property was a working farmhouse including its own arched millroom, now a beautifully furbished living space.
A separate kitchen and dining area also retains the ambiance of times gone by when it was the heart and centre of rural family life.The old back garden has been turned into a spacious sun lounge and sizable pool, with a build in Bbq area to one side, ideal for a summer evening meal.
The property sleeps 8, in four rustically furnished bedrooms (one ensuite) on the first floor, all of which retain old original features, some with arches spanning the room and others with stone roof side supports, quite rare to find in present day Gozo. The bedrooms are accessible through a wide airy corridor overlooking the pool area, again an old feature which takes you back centuries and gives the place a serene and cool ambiance. This floor is also service with two separate shower rooms.
Facilities include a well equipped kitchen, flat TV, DVD and free Wifi, while the bedrooms enjoy Air-condition units that are available with an electronic coin system (€1 & €2 coins) installed at property with a screen to display the credit remaining, each AC unit consumes around € 2 per night.

The farmhouse including its facilities was fantastic. I would have given our stay experience a 5-star rating if there were not several ‘minor’ inconveniences that we had and which I believe boil down to insufficient care for detail in maintaining the facilities. As examples I cite: 1 outdoor umbrella was torn and broken. A second outdoor umbrella was in the shower room, damp, moulded and stinking. Had to leave it in the sun for 1 day before it became ‘usable’. Downstairs bathroom had a faulty flushing (needs new valve?) limiting its use. Upstairs main bed was too squeaky on every movement. Upstairs fan only worked on maximum speed and only after prodding. Pool shower – loose shower head, leaky pipe… This is what we came across. As I said, I cannot complain about the farmhouse – loved it. But it is these small things that make a difference. I did not expect it especially since we are at the start and not the close of the main season. Hope my comments help you. David
