Tolle Außenanlagen, geräumig, ruhige Gegend.
Freundlicher Empfang am Flughafen. Der Besitzer gab uns Tipps und half sogar beim Mietwagen.
Zum Haus sind es ca.90 min mit dem Auto (Fähre eingerechnet).
Das Haus hat 4 Zimmer (2 im unteren Bereich und 2 oben) jedes mit einem separaten Bad. Das Haus ist geräumig und bietet Platz. 3 TV und 2 große Kühlschränke. Die Außenanlage ist schön.
MANKO: es hat reingeregnet und den Boden sehr rutschig gemacht und Sachen die am Fenster waren beschädigt. Vermieter hat sich dazu leider nicht geäußert.
Wenn es trocken ist, dann ist das Haus zu empfehlen. Sonst eher nicht.
very friendlycontact, overall quiet, needs to be cleaner
The owner Mark is one of the friendliest and accommodating lessors I ever had contact to. Really wanted to mention this at the beginning!
Regarding the house itself, overall we were ok with it, but actually we expected much more.
Furniture etc. are a little bit older, but ok. No dishwasher, but this was also ok for us. As it is an old house, there is still a lot of humidity inside so you can smell some moldiness (can also see it in some corners), which they tried to cover with some air fresheners. If you do not like the dominate smell of perfume and things like that, you will not like this.
Worst thing for us: in total it could have been cleaner. Sorry to say that, but e.g. the Utensils (fork, knife etc.) were not proper checked, so still some leftover of previous visitors stick to it. Some cockroaches (the big ones...) frequently were found on the floor close to the entrance door and in the two bedrooms next to the entrance door. They were more or less alive, I think the door was prepared with poison or something else, but due to the big cleft at the door, they easily came in. Glad we used the bedroom in the upper floor as I'm really sure otherwise my girlfriend would not have accepted this.
Besides that, we were told that the pool guy only comes once a week (Monday) to clean the pool. So if it is windy, you will soon have a lot of sand and leafs in the pool. Of course you can clean it on your own (were told to do so by the owner, when we asked for the pool boy), but if it is mentioned on the Homepage that your rental includes a pool boy, you just expect something else. Was in the end ok for us, but it is more regarding expectation management. So this Information is just for those, expecting the same like we did.
So overall I think we will not hire this house again, given to the mentioned facts above.
I’m quite disappointed that we did not manage to reach Bertram’s expectations, my apologies, we will try even harder next time, however, I must discuss a few pointers for the benefit of our future customers.
Gozo is very rural and our location is just at the end of the village core along fields with open country, so any bugs and insects that decide to wander in our house ( possibly to evade the hot sun ) are impossible to keep out. We do fumigate the outside surrounding area of the house twice yearly to discourage any bugs or insects to enter, but you do sometimes find a kamikaze who will try to succeed, but this should not reflect on the cleanliness of the house as we always deliver the house to our customers spotlessly clean!!
As for the pool, we had strong gusty winds during most of Bertram’s stay, so it is natural for leaves to be blown around and into the pool, I don’t see it unreasonable to use a pool net ( which is just by the sun loungers ) every now and then to collect the leaves from the pool surface.
For that, I do apologise on behalf of the God Aeolus.
Penmon Farmhouse along with hundreds of other typical farmhouses in Gozo were built centuries ago, and were built to keep cool in summer and warm in winter. These rustic abodes complete with private pool are an interesting alternative to the standard hotel-type accommodation and it is their character and charm that puts them in a totally different segment from today’s concrete apartments and hotels.
At the end of the day, the choice is yours to select your accommodation. Our pictures and information as advertised, simply and truly reflect what we offer, no less no more…..along with our service of course!

Ein Super Haus. Der Vermieter hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben und hat sich auch bei der Übergabe sehr viel Zeit genommen. Ein sehr freundlicher und Positiver Vermieter. Das Haus hervorragend geführt und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Nancy und auch der Poolboy haben auf uns einen sehr freundlichen Eindruck gemacht. Das Haus liegt in Gharb hervorragend und ruhig.
Vielen Danke Reinhard, ich hoffe, Sie in der nicht allzu ferner Zukunft wiederzusehen
An exceptional property
We would all recommend (adults and children alike) a stay at Mark and Lydia’s property .
It was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and it was immaculately clean .
The property is outstanding, this is not your average villa ! It has been a very well thought out well executed refurbishment , with lots of original features of the farmhouse left (an eg being where they used to feed the animals is now a shelf in a alcove in the kitchen area ).
The bathrooms were all up to date and modern as was the kitchen. We liked the fact that we had a second fridge which we used for drinks.
The outside space is spectacular and the pool is a very good size again it has been very well thought out .
You can tell that a lot of love and attention as well as time has been spent on this property .
There are two shops within walking distance who will deliver if you wish , three restaurants and a bus stop all within a few minutes walk
We hired a car for one week as we wanted to do explore the area as well as having a relaxing week . We also used the local buses a couple of times to go to Victoria.
Gharb is a lovely place and the local people are so friendly as were Mark and Lydia .
Thank you for meeting me at the airport Mark and for arranging our transfers and thank you Lydia for taking the time to explain everything at the farmhouse. We hope to visit your beautiful home again .
Lovely to have hosted such wonderful people, glad you had a fab time and look forward to seeing you all once again.
Beautiful property retaining old charm
Really great time; the pool was fabulous, house is very clean and comfortable with plenty of space for groups. Really good communication with owner.
Gharb is lovely, be sure to book a visit to the nearby winery, Tal-Massar.
It was the most amazing break ever! we had so much fun highly recommend this farmhouse.
