Farm house overview - owner's description
A luxury farmhouse converted into a vacation home. Four double bedrooms, all with bathrooms en-suite and a swimming pool.
This very old farmhouse has been recently expertly converted and beautifully styled into a comfortable four bedroom vacation home, preserving all of its original rustic features. This beautiful farmhouse is located on the outskirts of Victoria in a peaceful road close to typical Gozitan countryside and is ideal for those country-walking lovers.
It consists of four double bedrooms, all of them with bathrooms en-suite. One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor with windows overlooking a sunny pool measuring 6m by 4m. The pool area also enjoys a sun terrace and barbecue and a lot of privacy.
A fully-equipped separate kitchen and a lovely large arched dining room and lounge/ living room, complete with cable television, are also located on the ground floor. There is also an extra bathroom on the ground floor.
Access to the first floor is from an internal stone stairs and from an internal spiral staircase .
On the first floor you'll find the other three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, and a very large sunny terrace from where you can admire the majestic Cittadella and the valley leading to Xlendi – a nearby picturesque seaside village.
This farmhouse is beautifully furnished and delightfully blends antique and Swedish-pine furniture.

We had a wonderful time staying at Ta Zaren. My husband and I and our four children all enjoyed a relaxing and fun time. The villa is very spacious and peaceful. The pool is lovely, a good size and not overlooked at all. It was nice to have a big dining table which we could all sit around together (previously in other rental properties we have stayed in this has been an issue!) The villa is in a quiet area a short drive from most things. The sun terrace was really lovely, especially in the evenings with a glass of wine. The tea/coffee/food package on arrival was particularly welcomed as we arrived late in the evening. Thank you Reno for your hospitality, we all had a great time.
The property has great character and charm and the owner, Reno, was very helpful but there are a couple of points which should be noted. One is that there is a depot next door which does operate 6 days a week and can be somewhat noisy from time to time. Further, I would describe this property as more of a village house as it is in a built up area rather than a rural area. The only improvement I would suggest is a dishwasher, particularly given the house can sleep up to 8. Otherwise, a lovely place to stay.
The farmhouse is full of character with a lot of original features. The property is designed for keeping cool in hot weather so early spring can be a little chilly in the evening - although there are some portable heaters provided. The owner Reno was very helpful and welcoming and was responsive to any problems/questions etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a lovely place to stay.
The farmhouse far exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and size, the rooms are very large and keep cool on hot days.
The bedrooms are all well appointed with ensuite shower (3) / bath (1), there is one double room at the top of the spiral staircase, overlooking the sun terrace, the rest are twin bedded rooms.
The sun terrace has sun all day, has wonderful views of the Citadel in Victoria and beautiful sunsets.
The kitchen and living area are also well appointed with all the basics to enable self catering. A good value supermarket is 5-10 minutes walk away. If you want to eat outside there is patio furniture both by the poolside and up on the sun terrace.
The Pool is a good size with a shallow end and good steps and catches the sun directly in the afternoon.
The owners are very helpful and made contact by e-mail immediately after booking, they can arrange transfers to/from Malta airport and have a hire car waiting at the Farmhouse. We had already made our own hire car arrangements and were met at the harbour on arrival in Gozo.
We very much enjoyed our stay in Gozo, location of farmhouse was a little disapointing at first glance as it is located next to a builders yard dealing in re-enforcing steel with an abandoned old wagon and several vehicles coming in and out. As the holiday progressed we found that it did not intrude on the property other than early (4am starts occassionaly with a wagon). We had a very mixed age group from 2 years old to 56year old so the tall spiral stair case which gives access to one of the bedrooms we didn't think would be a problem we would just allocate the room accordingly (only thing to remember is that this is the only access to the roof terrace which gets the sun all day and you can't even carry a small tray or suitcase up there).
Reno (owner) was very accommodating and helpful which was fortunate as the weather was cold on arrival, farmhouses on Gozo are built to keep heat out rather than in, so he brought us a calor gas heater for the living area to enable us to sit more comfortably in the evening. We bought 5 hot waterbottles to get warm in bed.
It is a lovely island and the farmhouse is situated in a good sport for walking and close to amenities in Victoria. I'm sure later in the season when it is warmer that the property comes into its own (and Reno can't fix the weather) if you don't mind fairly rustic facilities and want a feel for the 'real' island then this is a good location. Better for older children though because of the access to roof terrace.
