Tal-Barun Self-Catering Farmhouse

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Aug-2016
Farmhouse in San Lawrenz,- Quaint location,minutes away from Victoria and Dwejra Bay, excellent location

With its classic red shutters, stone slab ceilings, limestone flooring and a history that goes back to 300 years, Tal-Barun farmhouse will appeal to the most discerning of guests. This farmhouse is only a couple of minutes drive to the famous Dwejra Bay and it is only a short stroll away from the village square and local shops and restaurants and bars. On entering the house from the street where nothing is revealed of what lies beyond, it is only when you step inside that the 'farmhouse' aspect is enjoyed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This farmhouse is a wonderful place for a stay full of character and charm.



The welcome was just what we needed after a long journey (the wine was absolutely nice, no the usual rubbish you would normally expect)



We went all round the island and went to new places that were just amazing, we especially loved San Blas Bay, but it was such nice to come back to the farmhouse at the end of the day!



We will be definitely be coming back for a third time to this beautiful island.

Tal Kitarra Farmhouse - third time here :)

  • 5 of 5

Large, clean, nice layout with nice pool and outdoor areas. Four bedrooms (three ensuite) and extra bathroom downstairs. BBQ was easy to use. All cutlery and linen (including towels) available. Very helpful owners. Very good value for money.

Suggestions for improvement: add wall shower head support to upstairs bathroom. It is a nightmare trying to wash long hair and hold the shower head at the same time!

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is full of character and charm. Don't be put off by first appearances from the outside as this place has so much to offer and plenty of space you won't believe!

The pool is obviously small but all we needed and was very refreshing as tended to be shaded. The upper balcony has a lovely view of the sea and surrounds you in 3 directions which gave for lovely sunsets and sunrises.

Very comfortable beds and effective fans provided.

The farmhouse is very well located. The local restaurant is excellent and a 2 min walk away. We would recommend a car though if you want to see more of the island. Driving was fairly straight forward and well worth it if you want to get to some of the more remote picturesque bays.

We were greeted warmly on arrival and all communications from the family prior and during our stay were very prompt and helpful.
