'totally relaxing weekend made evermore so by the fantastic atmosphere of this brilliant house, a rare farmhouse. It has been a week getaway, hideaway, whatever you call it. Totally amazed at the size, yet still snug and comfortable surroundings. This place made us 'chill out' to the maximum. Love it, love Gozo. Thanks and hope to be back sometime.' Charles, Clefton.

Stunning views, gorgeous outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

Cannot recommend this property highly enough! Stunning views from the two raised terraces, gorgeous private outside area with lovely pool and seating areas, airy, clean rooms and perfect hosts!

This was our first visit to Gozo and the house was in a great location to explore the island. We hired a car, but good local bus services mean that this isn't necessary.

Laura and Louis have created a beautiful house, with a high quality finish. They went out of their way to make us feel very welcome. Their generosity and friendliness was very much appreciated.

We hope to return again one day. X

All we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Very special holiday, special house & owners, met & exceeded all our expectations.

This house renovated by Lois so beautifully done, amazing views from each of the three terraces, lovely garden with comfortable seating area's, we all enjoyed the pool & jacuzzi, the house was so clean & well maintained.

Our stay was over Easter on Easter Sunday we all went to the race course & for lunch we returned to the house to find a delicious home baked cake & a bottle of Louis's wine so kind, so thoughtful, thank you

The location is also ideal 10-15 minute walk into Victoria lovely buildings, squares to sit & enjoy coffee & cake, restaurants shopping & buses to anywhere on the Island.

There were six of us on holiday,the children called the house "the castle" we all have the best memories of the holiday & hope to return, we would without a doubt recommend.

Tony, Suzanne & family

Wonderful farmhouse...would highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was absolutely brilliant...great facilities, location, views and extremely helpful owners. The village of Kercem has all the basics that you need (supermarket, bakery, bar, restaurant) and it's only 10 minute walk or short bus trip into Victoria for more variety and to use the bus network that covers Gozo. We has a fabulous time and I would highly recommend this farmhouse to anyone planning a trip to Gozo.

It was not a dream, it was reality!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Laura and Louis! They aren't only the owners of il-kiffixija, they're really hosts. Their only wish is you to feel well and comfortable. We had a wonderful welcome with Louis' own wine, we tasted Laura's dessert and a lot of fruits of their garden and we loved their kindness. Sitting together with them was like feeling at home.

The house - of course - is a dream. Especially the pool area. Everything was clean. The whole island of Gozo is very safe and the people are more than friendly. We enjoyed the time very much and it was hard to say goodbye. Hope to return again.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A thank you to Laura and Louis for making us feel welcome and for their help, even picking us up from grocery shopping on our first day.

The house is beautiful full of character in honeyed stone. We especially liked the pool which was stunning.

We felt a car was a good idea to explore all the island however the buses were good and easy to get around.

We had a wonderful two weeks which went all too quickly.
