What a gem to find such a place as Tal-Kitarra Farmhouse in the wealth of pages the internet provides!
We consider ourselves honoured to be among the first to visit this fabulous farmhouse and enjoy the peace of Gozo.
The kids have had a great time at the pool and sightseeing both on Gozo and on our day trips to Malta. Everywhere the 'locals' have chatted to the children, made us feel very welcome and done their best to 'point us in the right direction'.
Special places? Too many to mention but I disagree with the Guide Book we had. We visited several of the churches - Xewkija (go up the lift to admire the views) and Ta' Pinu are special. I loved Dwejra Point and we thought Xlendi was far more cosmopolitan than Marsalforn, but each to their own.
If you get the chance to be a part of one of the village 'Festas', be there! We were here for the Assumption and the festivities in Victoria were amazing - never seen anything like it! The fireworks, well...
As for Malta, we only visited twice but Valletta is well worth more than a day; head up towards 'Upper Barracca' Gardens for fantastic views. Mdina is also a must for atmosphere, history and religion all ralled into one.
Places to eat? We tried 'La Stanza' on the road to San Lawrenz and also 'Brookies' (we had a very long wait between courses but the food was fabulous!) Le Val d'Hor in Xleni was also very nice - all family friendly too.
But for making our holiday memorable we must thank Marvik and all his fabulous family! They are all so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Fresh tomatoes here are gorgeous!! We will be back without a doubt! Cheers!
