Kercem, Island of Gozo
We have only recently finished the conversion of Tal-Fenka. Formerly part of a mill, dating back to the Knights of St John (17th Century), Tal-Fenka boasts unobstructed views of the fortified Citadel beyond typical Gozitan farmland.<BR><BR>Imaginatively converted, our farmhouse as been carefully restored and yet retains all original features which you will slowly discover, like flagstones, niches, metre thick stonewalls, arches and wooden beams. It is, however, well equipped with a range of modern appliances to make your stay as comfortable as possible.<BR><BR>The three bedrooms in the farmhouse can hold up to 6 adults and 2 children, with the two main en suite bedrooms being fully air-conditioned (coin operated). Fans are provided in each bedroom and also in the lounge (free of charge) For guests visiting during t... Read more

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our stay in Gozo at Tel Fenka - we were 7 people altogether and found the accommodation big enough and comfortable for all of us. It's very quiet, but be aware of the loud fireworks in August. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and the outside space is nice for eating al fresco. You are situated in a farm area, so the smells are not always pleasant.

We had an unfortunate problem with the pool which affected our overall stay negatively. On day 3 of our 10 day holiday, the pool became murky and unfit for use. We let the owners know on many occasions and whilst responsive by email, the problem was not resolved satisfactorily. They assured us it would be looked at and after several back and forth emails and maintenance visits, the pool was finally cleaned....but not until the day we left. So our holiday in the sun was spent without a pool as planned.

Management response:

At every call or email from the guests we took immediate action and the pool maintenance person was sent over several times. Usually pool is maintained once to twice per week, in this case he visited nearly daily. Sand was found at the bottom of the pool which found itself there after guests visited a sandy beach. In the end...
