Excellent accommodation on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently enjoyed a wonderful 2 week holiday on Gozo staying in this beautiful house. This was our 7th holiday on Gozo and Dar Zebbuga is by far the best house/villa we have stayed in.

The interior is spacious, homely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is very well equipped with everything you would require during your holiday.

The pool area is wonderful with an excellent size (south facing) pool, patio area, BBQ and sun loungers.

If you are considering Gozo for your holiday destination and want 5☆ accommodation then look no further than this beautiful property.

Rowena and Alex are both very friendly and helpful.

We are already looking at dates to return next year.

Great place to stay on Gozo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully converted farmhouse providing spacious and comfortable accommodation in a great location. The pool is lovely (with regular visits from a lovely red dragonfly during our stay), and on very hot afternoons you have the option to retreat to the cool tv 'cave' room.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

From the initial contact with Rowena, everything ran smoothly.

From extending the holiday to the greeting we received it was brilliant.

The villa was everything we hoped for, for a family holiday of 6 adults.

It is spacious, modern and airy and the TV room was certainly a hit.

Although this was our second visit to Gozo we still discovered more of the island and i couldn't recommend it more as a place to tick off the list.

Along with the villa i have been recommending it to anyone that will listen!

Thank you Rowena for letting us stay in your home and we certainly hope to be back soon

Thanks

Donnelly Family

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is outstanding - clean, modern and spacious. Really good facilities which we put to good use such as a washing machine and dishwasher. The bedrooms are an excellent size and each has an en suite bedroom. It is well worth having the air conditioning.

I didn't think we would make use of the tv room but it was a welcome retreat from the sun on a couple of afternoons.

The villa is in a quiet location (other than the odd firework!). Kercem is a fantastic location and the people in Gozo are very friendly. We were lucky enough to be staying at the villa during the Kercem 'festa' which was good fun. There were fireworks, food stalls and a brass band during the evening.

Like many villas in Gozo, it isn't ideal for very small children. The stairs are stone and the pool is deep but we managed to escape without any injuries! You just need to be extra vigilant.

Rowena and Alex were very helpful leading up to and during our holiday. They both answered any questions we had very quickly.

We had a fantastic holiday at this villa and would recommend. We will certainly be returning if we have an opportunity.

Beautiful Villa perfect for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found this beautiful villa to be as described, fully equipped, clean and well maintained. There was great communication in both the UK (prior to our trip) and Gozo. You can't really be far from anywhere on Gozo, so the location was great. We took the opportunity to go sea kayaking, which we would definitely recommend, but with such a great villa we enjoyed spending days by the pool and movie nights! We feel privileged to have been able to stay at Dar Zebugga and would definitely recommend this villa.
