San Lawrenz, Island of Gozo
With its classic red shutters, stone slab ceilings, limestone flooring and a history that goes back to 300 years, Tal-Barun farmhouse will appeal to the most discerning of guests.

This farmhouse is only a couple of minutes drive to the famous Dwejra Bay and it is only a short stroll away from the village square and local shops and restaurants and bars. On entering the house from the street where nothing is revealed of what lies beyond, it is only when you step inside that the 'farmhouse' aspect is enjoyed.

Direct sunlight from the front windows ensure a warm welcome, while the thick stone walls keep...

A very interesting old house that is well presented and gives a good flavour of the Gozo farmhouse interior style. We were met there by Marvik who is a lovely man and who allowed us in early as we were only coming a couple of miles from our previous rental and there had been no-one for him to check out...

The island of gozo is lovely and much more relaxed than the very touristy malta. The farmhouse is very authentic and very nicely decorated. Organization is 1A The main disadvantage is the tiny pool with the cold water even mid-august, as it gets practically no sunlight.

Management response:

Dear Isaac. Am glad that you enjoyed the island of Gozo and our property! Saying that the pool get no sunlight at all is a bit too far, am afraid! It happened that while you were over it was not the warmest temperature in August! Will be glad to assist you next time with one of our properties!

About the neighbourhood
San Lawrenz is a village on the West of the Isle of Gozo, Malta. Its name is derived from Lawrence of Rome who is the patron saint for the village.

It is built on a plain surrounded by three hills, Għammar, Gelmus and Ta' Dbieġi. The last mentioned, Ta' Dbieġi, rises 195 metres above sea level and is Gozo's highest point. In the limits of San Lawrenz there is also the splendid bay of Dwejra, renowned for its strange geological faults and admired by tourists and locals alike.

This picturesque village has succeeded in retaining its traditional and rural lifestyle. It has managed to open up to progress without sacrificing its natural beauty and those values and traditions, which form the identity of this charming village.

San Lawrenz is one of the two Gozitan localities...
