Farmhouse -
2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
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.<BR><BR>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.

We loved our stay at Tal Barun. The house in San Lawrenz is a real home from home and is ideally located for exploring the rest of Gozo. Marvik, our host, was very kind and welcoming. We recommend this rental 100% and hope to return some time soon.

Tal-Barun farmhouse is situated in the tranquil village of San Lawrenz Gozo. This farmhouse welcomes you with its freshly painted red door and windows. The farmhouse is near the village core and so close to all amenities. The farmhouse is over 200 years old and retains most of its original features. It is split on 2 levels with the bedrooms...

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...

In the same village there is a 5* Hotel with all the subsequent amenities.<BR><BR>Further down the road to the village of Gharb, always within a 10 minute walk from the village centre, one finds the Gozo Crafts Village, together with a larger food store (opening 7am to 7pm daily and 8am to 1pm on Sundays). One also finds 2 more restaurants close to this food store /supermarket.<BR><BR>The village of Gharb is just nearby (walking distance) with more restaurants and a unique museum in the quain... more
