Fantastic holiday in a beautiful farmhouse in gozo

5 of 5
Cannot praise Carmen enough for our stay at ta mounsey 1, from getting off the plane in Malta, Carmen arranged a taxi to pick us up drive us to ferry and stay with us and drive us to villa in gozo, the villa is beautiful, clean and full of character, a stone spiral staircase leading to upstairs and the highlight was the large pool and comfortable sun beds. The beds were comfortable and the showers weee powerful. When we needed to do a shop Carmen arranged for Tony the shop owner to pick us up (it is a 15 minute walk to shop) we did our shop then bless him Tony gave us a lift back to mounsey1 and even helped us carry it all in, as our first day was my birthday Carmen helped me book a table for a meal at d'victoria in nadur and even dropped us off there, (beautiful restaurant and meal) they made our stay feel so special. We were at the farmhouse for 8 days and stayed by the pool for 7 of them only went out round the beautiful island one day we had everything we needed there and found it easier going for a walk into the villages at night when the sun had cooled down a bit. ta mounsey 2 is joined to ta mounsey 1, and the owners keep there horses and dogs at the stables just behind the villa it's nice to wake up to animals in a morning. Overall I would advise everybody to book a stay here you will fall in love with it, I have never been on a holiday like this before where the people treat you like this going out of there way to make you're stay welcome one word FANTASTIC. Thankyou Carmen....

Fantastic apartment with great sea/bay views

4 of 5
The apartment was spacious and comfortable and all facilities are to a very good standard. Air conditioning is a must at this time of the year and is very good during the night for sleep! The balcony with the sea view is outstanding and to be honest this is where we spent most of our time when we were back at the apartment. The only issue was that their was no outside light at the main entrance, minor. Restaurants in the area were 50-50 good to fair/poor, and we ate out for the 2 weeks of our stay and to be fair depends on your tastes. Good value for money. Public transport is good and bus cards can be purchased in main centre. The pick up/drop off to airport is great and Jason is a very good host. A good place for a couple to holiday. David
