very nice holiday at Gozo
We enjoyed our holiday on the Gozo island.
The farm house was beautiful, exactly as we expected.
The weather was top, your island is as beautiful as the farm house, and the people we met were charming.
It was really a very nice holiday for our family.
Lovely property in a quiet back street in Xaghra. Clean, comfortable and well-maintained. The pool was small but fine and had plenty of sunshine during the day so it kept warm. Patio area a little tight but fine for a family of four or five. Air-con in the bedrooms (we were using two of the three rooms) helped this year, and cost us about 2 Euros a night to run as long as we only tried to keep the temperature down to the mid-high 20s.
Really well-stocked and cheap supermarket 50 yards down the road, with lovely friendly staff. Xaghra town centre was about a 15 minute walk away. The road down to Ramla was just around the corner.
Having the pickup and return from and to the airport (arranged by Donald) and the hire car ready at the house was a luxury, after having to queue for an hour at the hire location at the airport last year. Just don't expect the car to be brand new and low mileage. Having said that, it was ideal for Gozo - compact, economical and air-conditioned. That's all you need.
Donald and Grace were the best you could ask for - helpful and responsive. We had a few very minor issues (problem with a shower head, one fan not working) and they were sorted out really quickly. Overall, one of our best holidays.
Dear John and family,
Thank you for your review.
It was a pleasure having you with us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
