There was plenty of room for all of us, with lots of space to sit, bathrooms, books, guidebooks etc. The welcome pack was much appreciated (although we struggled to find capsules to fit the coffee machine when we needed more). It was very useful to be so close to a bus stop as we used the bus most days in order to get to different parts of the island for some long walks (good walking guides in the farmhouse). Meanwhile our children enjoyed walking up and down most days to Ramla Bay, rewarding themselves with the excellent ice cream sold by the van there. The information sent to us before our arrival was helpful, although it would have been useful to have had some foolproof instructions on how to walk from the village square to the property (as well as the driving instructions from the ferry). We arrived in Mgarr after a very early morning flight and the friendly taxi driver took us to the square to have lunch because it was too early to check in. He confidently pointed out the direction we needed to walk to find where we were staying, but it turned out to be the opposite direction. It took us about an hour to find our way there, eventually with the help of Carmen the housekeeper. Once we were less sleep-deprived we realised it was actually a really easy 15-20 minute walk in almost a straight line. We felt, briefly, that we were part of the local community, having happened upon the lampuki festival held just down the street on our first night, and with nightly exchanges of "good evening" with the locals we encountered sitting out as we walked to and from the square. Both the farmhouse and the island were fantastic and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others, especially anyone with adult children.

It is situated in a very quiet part of the village, within easy walking distance of restaurants, which are busy and popular so remember to book, and small shops for all your essentials. It is also very well situated for exploring all round the island. We are very grateful to Sue, the owner, who had made the whole process of booking, transfers, car hire etc so easy, and also to the car hire company and drivers that she organised who went out of their way to be helpful and told us so much about the island and its people. Thoroughly recommend this lovely house and Gozo for a perfect holiday. We also spent a few interesting days in Malta but decided Gozo was the winner by far.
