All also have fixed ceiling and movable fans. There is a cool central courtyard with a shaded area where there is a coffee table and 4 seats. The kitchen/dining room opens onto a large south facing deck and swimming pool. The master bedroom opens onto a terrace overlooking the pool and is perfect for catching the evening sun. Gozo is quiet, small and safe. There are 5 restaurants and a couple of bars in Gharb, all within walking distance of the farmhouse, as well as restaurants in the 5 star Kempinski hotel. There is a well stocked supermarket 100m away and a bus stop within 5 minutes walk which can take you anywhere on the island. Within 15 minutes you can be at the seaside, including Xlendi and Marsalforn, both with numerous restaurants. A small crafts village is 5 minutes walk away. The village of San Lawrenz is 10 minutes walk away. It has a further couple of restaurants. Dwejra and the Azure Window (including an excellent restaurant) are a 5 minute drive away.
