“Stunning ”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Went to the farmhouse for 10 days with my wife and three girls aged 10-12. The house is simply stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. The house is light and airy and we couldn't have wished for a better place to spend our holiday.

The outside space makes the place. Warm evenings drinking at the table or by the pool. Our every need was catered for and Massimo could not do enough for us, even leaving us a 6 pack of beer on one of his many pool clean visits.

Thanks for a great holiday :)

“An excellent venue for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The location of the place is excellent. The view is superb since it lies overlooking the valley. The place is very well kept and it is excellent for family visits and group visits. The owner, Massimo, is very approachable and did his best to accomodate us at all times. We really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. Very, very relaxing. Highly recommendable :)

Set in a stunning location, the photos don't do it enough justice. The villa is spacious, comprehensively equipped, the decor and detail outstanding. Massimo's welcome and attentiveness throughout our stay was exceptional. There is absolutely nothing to fault about either the property or the landlord. You leave wishing that you owned it!

“Second visit. But hopefullly not our last!”

Having visited the property last year, we were pleased to be able to return to the farmhouse (and to Gozo) once more this autumn (we have been taking villas, gites and farmhouses across Europe for years and only once before had we returned to the same house).

Dar is-Saqwi is a magnificent house in a beautiful location. The pool, the hot tub, the beautiful arched ceilings in the bed rooms, the seclusion of the inner courtyard. What is there not to like?

Our only complaint was that we were only free to stay a week this time! Hopefully see you again soon Massimo...

Couldn't have found a better place to celebrate our marriage...perfect place, perfect setting. Massimo was extremely helpful which players great part in our choice. Would definitely recommend it even just for a relaxing holiday.

“Don't believe a word you have read in the positive reviews to date....Dar is-Saqwi is better than that.”

Dar is-Saqwi in Munxar, Goxo is by far the best house we have ever stayed in on our travels in the med. And Massimo is by far the nicest host we have ever met.

The farmhouse is beautiful - full of original charm, matched by all the mod cons you could wish for. It was also spotlessly clean. And I mean spotless. Built around a central courtyard, all the (ensuite) bedrooms and public areas have been stunningly renovated by Massimo and his father. We were spoilt for choice to which bedrooms we would all chose, and for spaces to sit and enjoy the space - both inside and outside where there are several terraces to choose from to either enjoy the sun, relax in the shade, or enjoy a glass of local wine (or 2 or 3 or 4).

I suspect the congregation at my mother in law's church will have their heads turned listening to her boost about the house, its facilities and the views.

If you can pull yourself away from this little castle with its pool and jacuzzi, Gozo is just class. In October the sea is like a bath. A few minutes from the house are the Sanap Cliffs, which are simply stunning and a great place to watch the sun setting. The tiny resort town of Xlendi is a few minutes away where you have a great choice of restaurants to choose from. The historical capital, Rabat/Victoria, is also a few minutes away (and provides a lovely backdrop to the sun terraces at the back of the house). But then on Gozo nowhere is very far away!

Our host Massimo met us on arrival and provided a tour of the house. Clearly proud of his handiwork, and rightly so. He sorted out a wifi issue for us - caused by a marvelous storm which took place on our first night which we viewed from the comfy lounge - and once we had got this sorted, he left us to our devices as any host should. A true gent, who owns a true palace, on a true paradise island. We will return.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Gozo and the house most of all. Great pool, great hot tub, great location - shop nearby sells almost anything you could want. We have stayed on Gozo three times now and this is the best farmhouse we have rented. We travelled as a family of 6 (parents, grandparents plus a little one year old) and everyone enjoyed it. Massimo was a wonderful host, all our needs were catered for - and there were quite a few with the baby coming along!

We would definitely recommend this property, it enabled us to relax and unwind completely.
