INTRODUCING ROKON HOLIDAY FARMHOUSE- BY JULES

Down a country road I open the pretty blue front door to arrive in a beautiful hall of local limestone. I’m told by the owner this is the original farmhouse. If this is original, the rest of this lovely holiday villa is a perfect match.

Under a stone archway ahead is a wood burning stove that adds charm. Hang a right through another arch and you will find the most cosy cottage style lounge. It is illuminated by light from the white terrace doors to the pool. The doors are open and the gap is filled with a lovely picture of countryside hills that bring echos of tranquillity into room. I could imagine spending hours here soaking up the ambience and totally unwinding.

Next door is a pretty Mediterranean style kitchen with dining table.

I could imagine Rokon making a great feature in Country Living magazine.
Except, this would be a “Mediterranean” version! If you’re looking for a farmhouse hideaway, a picturesque location and bags of charm, you’ve come to the right place.

Ground floor:

The lounge is located through a lovely stone arch where you can relax. There is a T.V. with cable and wi fi available.
The pretty kitchen next door has a cottage farmhouse feel with painted cream units and a matching farmhouse dining table. The kitchen and dining area have beautiful stone ceiling arches throughout.

A small twin room is located on the ground floor.

First floor:

From the hall and up a few stone stairs you arrive on a spacious landing where lovely white wooden terrace doors open out to pretty countryside views. There is a balcony to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

On the first floor you will find another 2 bedrooms. One is a twin bedroom and the other a very spacious master bedroom. There is a family bathroom on this floor with both shower and bath.

Outdoors:

The outdoor terrace and pool are set in a picture postcard of countryside scenery. There is a traditional stone table and benches for dining with a BBQ for those stay at home lazy days. Palm trees are dotted around the terrace and little brick wall.

Location

Locale

Village: San Lawrenz

San Lawrenz is a small, peaceful village in the west of Gozo. It’s also flat (handy if you’re not wild about steep climbs) and surrounded by three hills - Ta' Ghammar, Ta' Gelmus and Ta' Dbiegi.

The closest beach, Dwejra, is just 2 km away. Closer still (just 500 metres, in the heart of the village square) is Tatitas restaurant. Once a traditional Gozo farmhouse, its owner, Lawrence, has established a contemporary eatery with fine food. Dining outside is a fabulous experience, popular with locals, visitors and guests staying at the nearby 5* Kempinski Hotel. Two other restaurants, Salvina’s and Grazie Mille, ensure there’s plenty of choice if you’re planning to eat out regularly.
There is local food store located in the villages Square and a Supermarket a couple of minutes’ drive (1 km) from your Gozo holiday home.

The capital, Victoria, is 3.5 km away and an easy trip on the number 312 bus.

Parking
