We spent a fortnight in this magnificent farmhouse conversion in the heart of Kercem, close to local stores and pharmacy, and within easy walking distance of Victoria. The facilities on all three levels were of the highest standard and the attention to detail is remarkable. The furnishings and decor are the perfect blend of modern and traditional for a property of this type and the decorative touches throughout gave the house a homely, welcoming feel. The kitchen and dining rooms were extremely well equipped, with everything you could ever need, including plentiful storage (and fridge!) space. The bedrooms all have highly effective air-con and ceiling fans, and were very comfortable and spacious. The exterior was equally impressive, with a fabulous pool and jacuzzi set in gorgeous terraced gardens, complete with mature olive and palm trees, alongside a well-designed shaded exterior dining area where we enjoyed many of our meals. Our wonderful hosts Laura and Louis were a delight and could not have been more helpful and hospitable, making this a holiday we will never forget.

For the second time I spent my holidays in that wonderful farmhouse Il kixxifija at Kercem. And I can't expect going there the next time. The house with its pool area and the terrace is like paradise on earth. Laura and Louis are the best hosts you can imagine: helpful and very friendly. The house is in the middle of Kercem, the bus stop nearby, but you feel as being alone on the world. There's much privacy. Il kixxifija is really the best holiday house I have ever stayed.

I got to know the farmhouse from my brother who stayed there 5 years ago. First we stayed at the house in October 2012 and we came back here this May. You can't expect more from this place. It's just brilliant. The owners are lovely people with open hearts and delicious home-made wine once served for us ;-) We were a large group of 3 families (10 people in total) and we still had plenty of room for the next few ones. The house is clean and fully equipped. The best added value is the big table in the garden where we used to dine together during the day and to have a party in the evenings ;-)
Kercem is excellent location in the middle of Gozo so you will have a perfect starting point for both driving or walking throughout the island.
We have been to Gozo for the 4th time and we definitely wish to come back to this peaceful charming island and particular to this farmhouse.

“The house is much better then on photos !”

We rented the house first time in 2013 and we came back in May 2015.
We (three families with kids) have rented before a number of different farmhouses in Gozo and this one is no doubt the best.
The house is simply great. It has all you may expect from a holiday rental. Ideal location, a walking distance to shops, well equipped kitchen, well maintained swimming pool, specious rooms and very helpful owners. The star of the house is the outside table where you can relax or eat while your kids have fun in the swimming pool.
The photographs of the house are (in my opinion) misleading as in reality it looks much better !
I would recommend this farmhouse especially to families with kids.
