Like a step back in time

  • 3 of 5

The property is nice and clean and could, potentially, be amazing. It was definitely worth what we paid and we loved the village and the locals. You are a little out of the way, but we liked that and the public transport is very cheap and reliable. The property did smell a little damp, which you noticed when you first walked in, but got used to and try as we might, we couldn't get the hot tub to work. Be prepared for being woken early in the morning, as delivery trucks beep and stop right outside. All in all, the character and size of the property are excellent for the price - it really does look just like the photos. However, with a little attention to detail, e.g. clean dish cloths, new bedclothes and smarten up the roof terrace, this really could be 5 star.

68 Nights

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cozy accommodation for almost 10 weeks and felt very much at home. Very clean upon arrival (and departure). Comfortable bed, although the pillows could do with some replacing. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable living areas. Basic TV service. Steps from butcher, grocery, and bus service. Vegetable, bread, and fish mongers stop 6 days a week just outside the door. The only reason for not assigning five stars is, the house is on a much traveled street. Traffic all day long, including delivery trucks for the grocer; and drivers would leave the engines idling underneath our windows. Nothing the landlord, or her local representative Laurence, can control. Otherwise a great stay.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was same time historical and homely. The best of all was the jacuzzi at the roof of the house. It was so nice to go to cool water after a hot day.

Laurence was very helpful and everything works well.

Authentique maison ancienne pleine de charme.

  • 5 of 5

Au coeur du village , très agréable maison ancienne parfaitement aménagée.

Superbe terrasse sur le toit avec une vue magnifique sur la ville et les villages environnants.

Et lorsque nous y étions, nous avons pu profiter de feux d'artifice en dînant sur la terrasse; le vrai luxe!

Chambres climatisées et parking pour la voiture juste devant la maison. Petite épicerie juste en face.

Accueil très sympathique de Lawrence, le "gardien" de la maison.

Un très bon choix d'hébergement pour séjourner à Gozo.
