“Tranquility at its best!”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Have just got back from a 20 day stay at Tranquility Farmhouse with my husband and two children. What a truly beautiful property. As other reviews have said we found it to be spotlessly clean and was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The pool area was more than ample for our needs and was in the sun for most of the day. Peter and Toni Ann were both warm and welcoming being available (living across the road) without being intrusive. The property is a short walk away from Nadur Square where there are a few restaurants, bars and a couple of small supermarkets. Peter kindly arranged car hire for us which proved invaluable and we made the most of this touring the island and finding lots of little bays. I would have no qualms whatsoever in recommending this property.

“Fantastic Farmhouse”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

If you are looking for a quiet relaxing break in rustic Gozo surroundings..look no further. We have stayed at many farmhouses over the years and can honestly say that this ranks amongst the best of them.
The photographs do not give it the justice it deserves, entering from the quiet street you will be pleasantly surprised how big the property is and how well thought out the layout is.
All rooms are very spacious and tastefully furnished, far removed from your average holiday rental.
The en-suite bathroom and house bathrooms are spotless and of a very high standard and tastefully embellished.
The rear courtyard garden is very quiet, private and not overlooked, and also a natural sun trap. The pool is very well maintained and ideal to cool off in with a beer.
Clean towels and bedding were never in short supply and once again far superior to your usual holiday rental standard.
A 10 minute walk will take you to Nadur centre where you will find an array of bars, restaurants and a regular bus service.
Toni-Anne and Peter the owners, really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was memorable .

“Sublime Accommodationa”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our two week stay at Tranquility followed on the heels of the guests who submitted the review immediately below. (Coincidentally we dined at adjacent tables at Fleigu one evening and plan to stay in touch.) We're glad their post preceded ours so we can simply agree with their comments, adding only that despite the weather being too cool for a swim Peter was assiduous in maintaining the pool in good condition. A wonderful stay, but not for anyone with mobility issues. We plan to return next year.

“Comfortable, spacious and quiet”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Coming from San Francisco, we weren't ready for the absolute silence at night and the absolute absence of crime. Built by the owner himself, this 3-story farmhouse has terraces on all 3 levels giving you a variety of options to enjoy outdoor living. Modern conveniences like a swimming pool and upgraded kitchen are set in traditional Maltese architecture with arches and beamed ceilings. The location at the end of a quiet street but within an easy walk to town plaza and buses provides an ideal setting to experience Gozitan life. For example, the fish monger's truck stopped in front of the house with fresh salmon caught that morning. The fish vendor cut us two steaks and we grilled it that evening with fresh vegetables from local farms. The hosts were accommodating, responsive and an absolute pleasure to share time with.

“Lovely base on Gozo”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent a very happy four nights at Tranquility Farmhouse recently as part of our trip to Malta. Peter and Toni Ann were every bit as welcoming, accommodating, and helpful as other reviewers had mentioned. The house is very roomy - all the rooms are spacious and well furnished. With only two of us it was over the top, but the rate was very reasonable.

The pool and rear courtyard aren't huge - but the pool is well situated to get some sun all day, even during the start of autumn when we stayed. It is a lot chillier than the sea, especially as it is quite deep at one end, but lovely to have access to for a quick dip or sitting around with a drink. There are lights so you can use the area at night (although turn the lights off and it's great to lie back on the sunbeds and watch the stars), and a small but functional BBQ, which we put to good use.

The kitchen is well stocked with the basics - kettle, drip coffee machine, toaster, microwave, large fridge / freezer, decent gas cooktop and electric oven. There is a decent range of crockery and cutlery, and various pans and utensils, as well as supplies for cleaning and dishwashing. I would suggest that it would benefit from a few additional basics - like a roll of cooking foil and some non-perishable basics like oil and condiments. For longer term stays it's not a big deal to have to purchase everything from scratch, but for a short stay we found it hard to buy very small quantities of such things, so left behind a nearly full bottle of ketchup, cooking oil, coffee grounds etc, and I hate wasting food.

There are two double bedrooms, one twin room, and a single room, all well fitted with wardrobes and chests of drawers, so there's plenty of storage. Both double rooms have ensuites, but the one on the first floor only has a bath with handheld shower, so if you want to have a proper shower you need to use the small central shower room, or the ensuite to the penthouse bedroom. Both double rooms have a private outdoor deck area - the penthouse deck being the most private, as well as having a handy clothes line (there is a washer, basket and pegs in the penthouse ensuite). The central shower room (which we used) is quite tight, and the shower itself is small enough that it's easy to knock the mixer lever and turn the water off mid shower, but we got used to it, and everything was very nicely finished and clean. As with many rural locations, the water pressure is not great - although the solar hot water was very hot once it got to you. We found that switching the shower head to the tighter flow gave a reasonable pressure once you got the balance right.

Even in October the weather was still quite warm (to us, anyway), but keeping the windows to the central courtyard shaft open helped ventilate the house, and there were pedestal fans available, and screens on all the windows so you could keep them open for a breeze if you wanted. The house is made of huge limestone blocks, so great for maintaining a temperature, but like all stone houses, once the heat gets in, it takes some work to get it out again.

We had a fantastic time at Tranquility, the only drawback for us was that the bed was VERY hard. We had the option of using either of the two double rooms, but the mattresses seemed to be identical, so we stayed with the main bedroom on the first floor (fewer stairs). With back and hip issues, I found it very difficult to get a good night's sleep, and my partner, who is normally able to sleep on anything, also struggled. We realise that providing bedding in accommodation is always a compromise, but if you need a soft bed, this may not be the right house for you. (we managed by using the foam mattress off the sofa bed in the lounge as a topper underneath the sheet and mattress protector, which helped a little).

That niggle aside, we were very sad to leave, as we'd found the house to be a wonderful base for our Gozo adventure, and Peter and Toni Ann to be lovely hosts - there when you needed them, but not intrusive in the least. We swam at a different beach every day, were able to be self-sufficient and prepare some great meals at home (which we prefer to do), and loved exploring Gozo, which its amazing archaeology and coastline.

Nadur is very handily located - not far from the harbour where the ferry arrives, and very close to Ramla and San Blas Bays, and an easy drive to the whole island (Gozo isn't terribly big so everywhere is reachable). There are several small market stores for general food / household needs, and once you find the various butchers and bakeries tucked away underneath townhouses around the town, you'll have plenty of options for catering. There is also a lovely restaurant "The Fat Rabbit' and a great pizza place "Rabokk' - both are centrally located and an easy walk. (both were suggestions from Peter and Toni Ann - and great choices), as well as several other eating options and bars.

A couple of tips - having a car does make getting around a lot easier and there is parking near the house, but get a SMALL car if you can. Many of the roads are very narrow and finding parking in other places can be challenging. The roads on Gozo seem to be of two varieties - short stretches of beautiful new sweeping boulevard in the oddest places, and vast areas of what can only kindly be described as 'nothing more than the fillings of potholes'. Interestingly, the former seemed to be on roads indicated on our maps as 'minor' routes, and the latter almost universally marked as 'major'. Traffic can get interesting as local drivers are generally not in a hurry, and while nominally Malta drives on the left hand side (like the UK) this seems to be more of a concept than reality, probably due to the large number of tourist drivers.
