“Fabulous character & charm in a tranquil town in Gozo”
Reviewed August 2, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Mary & Andrew were the perfect hosts and really went above and beyond the call of duty in looking after our needs. Mary prepared an amazing vegetarian traditional meal for our arrival and Andrew regularly delivered various fresh fruit and vegetables from his fathers farm. They also supplied an abundance of information on everything you need to know about Gozo. The house itself is a tastefully and lovingly restored old bakery. Each room was totally unique and they blended old world style with comtemporary touches. Two added bonuses were that it was located beside the nicest swimming spot on Gozo (Wied -il-Ghasri) and a very tasty little pizzeria. It was an excellent getaway to relax and soak up Gozo and all its charms.

It is such a pleasure knowing that you enjoyed staying at "il-Forn" and that you found the perfect "getaway" for your holiday. The house is infact in a very tranquil area but still close to everyday amenities, while the pizzeria in the square is becoming more and more famous with our special guests. We are so glad that you enjoyed our provisions - it is such a pleasure to treat our special guests the best way possible especially after a long day of traveling. Yes our house is infact very close to some of the nicest swimming, secluded spots of the island and "Wied l-Ghasri" a tiny beach nesting in a gorge is a wonderful place to relax peacefully. Gozo offers spectacular walks along the coast and the area around Zebbug is undoubtedly one of them with the salt pans and the window of "Wied il-Mielah" which is becoming more and more popular. Thanks for your letting us know you better which was so special for us and wish you prosperity for your business - maybe we will have the pleasure meeting and hosting you both once again in our converted bakery "il-Forn".

“Amazing owners, stylish house!”
Reviewed July 19, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Just very hospitable couple - Mary and Andrew! I enjoyed staying in Gozo at this farmhouse. They can manage all you need in the island and the most important thing for me -- I didn`t feel myself as a guest here, but a friend! Diving information, BBQ, maps, tips and always staying in touch if something was neсessary. Mary and Andrew, as I told you already - I`ve got the friends now in Malta! Thank you very much! Once again I made sure that not the place (all yet your house is amazing!!!) makes you happy and your vacation comfortable, but the people!
Many greetings!
Love,
Olga, Victoria, Irina.
