“Located in the small, sleepy village of Kercem this century old farmhouse has been remarkably transformed by an imaginative conversion into a holiday home. It is also a stone's throw away from the capital, Victoria.
Walking through the green-painted external door is a pretty picture of a first-floor balcony and an external staircase down to the main door.
By now, with over 16 years of holiday farmhouse experience on Gozo, I should have learned an invaluable lesson. Never, for one minute, underestimate what lies behind that door! Again, I was caught out as the picture is breathtaking, being a personal fan of original features. Here was not just one, but four stunning feature limestone arches stretching from one side of the house to the other. So elegant, they sit comfortably over superior furnishings to create a cosy, picturesque living room. In its day, this was a working mill room. Nowadays, it is reinvented as the new hub of this beautiful home.
I could spend the next few pages writing about this feature mill room but suggest I don’t. Instead, we encourage you check it out for yourself! Jules
