“An absolutely beautiful Villa”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is our 4th visit to the beautiful island of Gozo, it is a quiet island which still retains it's identity. We stayed in Is Setah in July 2014 for 10 days with 2 families with teenagers. The Villa is just as beautiful as the pictures with Pauline being a very helpful host. There is air conditioning, which you have to pay for, but was well worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Xaghra is a good base as you can easily walk into the village square where there is a good choice of restaurants to choose from if you don't want to drive. Would also recommend Xlendi and Malsaforn for evening meals.

“The perfect place for a family holiday in beautiful Gozo”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We passed two idyllic weeks at L-Ghorfa, the identical farmhouse next door to Is-Setah.

We booked through Owners Direct and found the owner, Pauline, to be charming and attentive to deal with - an experience that continued throughout our stay (Pauline and her husband Mario, who was equally helpful and welcoming, live next door).

In terms of location, L-Ghorfa suited our party perfectly. It's in a quiet spot of charming Xaghra, with sea views, easy access to Gozo's best beach, just a five-minute walk from top local eaterie Tal Furnar and 10 minutes from the town's main square.

The farmhouse itself is beautifully presented. We all agreed the pool was one of the best we have had anywhere. And being sheltered by high walls on either side it stayed remarkably clean. The rooms are very comfortable and homely and each has a modern and powerful air conditioning unit (prepaid cards required) - a must for getting to sleep on particularly hot nights. The kitchen is very well equipped and the patio area is great for sipping a cool beer or sharing a bottle of wine under the stars.

We loved our stay here and would gladly come back again.

“L-Ghorfa farmhouse was an amazing place to stay in Gozo”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I went on holiday with 7 friends, we are all aged between 24-26 and we had a brilliant time. We stayed in L-Ghorfa which is the farmhouse next door to Is-Setah, and is also owned by the lovely Pauline and Mario. It is exactly the same in layout, style and size, the only difference being the staircase which is stone rather than railings. It is a stunning villa with excellent views and surroundings, the location is central and less than a 10 minute walk from Xhaghra square which is full of restaurants, bars and food stores. There is a bus station just up the road which can take you to and from Victoria, the capital of Gozo and a beautiful place to visit, as well as the ferry port and Marsalforn a beach lined by bars and places to eat. We would also highly recommend hiring a car from Mario's Rent-A-Car, which is well worth it for just €25 to use for the whole day to drive around the beautiful Island. Mario and Pauline were very hospitable and had left us food and wine in the villa to use on our arrival and were there to show us round. The air conditioning for the villa comes at an additional charge which you pay for on the meter.

We would all highly recommend staying here, what a perfect farmhouse and destination!
