“So charming, will definitely be back!”

Cannot believe we have been back a month, can't wait to go back! Kenneth and family were so accommodating, communication was excellent prior to our arrival, I had advised Kenneth of some activities which we were interested in and he had a list of all the places which he recommended we visited, the local knowledge is highly appreciated.
When we arrived in Gozo and drove to Qala it was mid day heat - it was silent, we met Kenneth in the square and he guided us to the property, down a side lane to the giant rustic door which led to the spacious open plan dining and living area. Kenneth and family were there to great us, we spoke about all of the places to see and things to do, they kindly showed us how everything worked and as we unpacked the bags the kids were already taking advantage of the pool, I followed not long after. The water was a refreshing respite from the heat of the Mediterranean sun.

The property is well thought out, very adequate for a family of four, would comfortably sleep 6 - 8 people. It was immaculately clean and as the previous reviewer wrote the pictures do not do the spaciousness of the property justice. The kitchen was fully equipped to make even the largest of meals and the dishwasher is a welcome addition! I enjoyed the six burner barbecue and have since bought a smaller version of the same brand as it was such a pleasure to cook on. Plenty of seating outside and at night time it was relaxing to sit by the pool with the outside lighting, the cooler breeze and a nice cold drink.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and the fans were good to get a slight breeze through the house whilst acclimatising over the first couple of days, I will be honest I was dubious about the property not having air conditioning but it was so airy it really didn't need it, (it did come close to 40 degrees whilst we were there).

We took our laptop so the kids could watch cartoons/movies when they needed to be in from the sun, the property also had a good wifi connection which allowed us to keep in touch with friends and family and keep up to date with T.V back home!

I would recommend the hiring of a car, we booked in advance with Ray Bezzina and collected the car at Malta airport, the journey to the ferry port was very straightforward and Gozo is well sign posted. The beach which visited nearly every day was Ramla, only 5/10 mins in a car, it is served by public transport but with two kids in tow I would advise to drive, it also gave us complete flexibility to explore the Island, we really liked the Azure window and took a guided tour by a local fisherman for €20 through the caves, money well spent as we could see the coral glowing effervescently beneath the surface of the water, this made us want to learn scuba diving! (which this island is perfect for).
On the way from Victoria (Citadella a must!) to the Azure Window there is a small crafts village which has local crafts people producing local goods such as metal work, glass, lace and leather, I would have spent more money here had we have had sufficient space in our luggage! Very good quality products at reasonable prices.

Local to the property were two small well stocked shops although I headed back towards the ferry port to a larger supermarket when we needed to get a wider range of shopping, there were also a number of restaurants and bars which were very nice to sit outside in the evenings, I would recommend Ta' Vestru very good food at reasonable prices. We were quite fortunate to be visiting during the villages local festival when they celebrate their parishes saint, to roads were all closed off for a street party which included traditional dancing as well as modern music, there was a really nice party atmosphere but so relaxed at the same time, the church was lit up and flags lined the streets.

I could go on and on, we go on a summer holiday every year and always want to go somewhere different the following year, but I really think that Gozo is something special and makes it difficult at this stage for us to want to go anywhere different for the for foreseeable, even though in the Eurozone everything was very reasonably priced which made it so much more enjoyable, the Gozitans and the Maltese are such warm people and make you feel very welcome, even when passing by traders selling their wares they are not at all pushy and a simple no thank you would not be met by a torrent of abuse as I have experienced in numerous other countries.

I hope it continues to retain it's charm, I know the government is focusing on an eco Gozo which I hope prevents the Island from turning into a crowded high rise tourist development.

If you want peace and quite, a relaxing holiday and feel rested afterwards then this is the place, we felt like we were at home the whole time and can see ourselves returning for years to come.

“Fabulous farmhouse, brilliant holiday”

Dar tal - genn is a beautiful, chic farmhouse in a peaceful location with an amazing pool. The farmhouse is spacious, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. It is located within walking distance of the village piazza where there are a selection of bars and restaurants and Qala is full of warm friendly people. Thank you Kenneth for a brilliant holiday.

“A wonderful relaxing stay at a delightful Family house!”
Reviewed 20 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We were looking for somewhere our extended family could take a short break together and found Dar tal-genn.
Mr Zammit was most helpful and professional, arrangements for our arrival went smoothly and we were met and accompanied directly to the house.
We were all pleasantly surprised since the photographs had not given a true sense of scale, nor reflected the real quality of the house.
We chose Dar tal-genn over alternative villas because we wanted a decent pool area with enough outside space for the family to eat and relax and we were not disappointed. Of particular note was the pool with it’s integral jacuzzi, the good quality gas BBQ and seating area, plus the spacious en-suite bedrooms which were spotlessly clean.
My job entails quite a lot of travelling abroad and I can honestly say I found it so refreshing and relaxing to stay at a private rental instead of a faceless hotel!
We are happy to recommend the house and would certainly return to Dar tal-genn.
