Firstly, to say thank you to Alice and Leo for all their help arranging transfers and car hire. The whole experience from inital enquiry to saying bye (or rather, see you again) to Leo at the airport was first rate.
Having had a few disappointments with holiday villa bookings over the years, I am always a little sceptical before arrvial but the description and pictures of the farmhouse are 100% reliable and trustworthy - it is exactly as described and photographed, although, the pool is actually larger than it looks in the photographs!
Wonderfully located in a very friendly residential street in the centre of Ghajnsielem, very close to the church and about a 10 minute walk to Mgarr harbour, where there are many restaurants, and, of course, which is the departure/arrival point for the Gozo - Malta ferry. There is a supermarket within two minutes walk, two fresh fish shops and a bar and pizza/burger restaurnant in the village itself without even having to walk to the harbour - the village though is lovely and quiet even in August! Although we hired a car, it would be easy to stay here without having to.
The layout is great, with the bedrooms accessible without actually having to enter the house itself, providing lots of privacy even when travelling as a group - there is a lockable front gate so security is never an issue, each bedroom door also has a lock. The bedrooms are also accessible via internal stairs. I note that the stairs have been mentioned several times in reviews; given the structure of the house, they are spiral and whilst those to the top floor are longer than those to the frst floor, both staircases are easilty navigated. The house is lovingly furnished, much more like a family home than a holiday farmhouse, indeed, it used to be Leo and Alice's home, and it is obvious. It is also very clean and well cared for.
Very highly recommended. We shall definitely return!

“Fabulous house for a large group”

We were 8 adults and one small child celebrating a family birthday and chose Ta'Vitor for a number of reasons. Firstly, it has excellent facilities for a large group - good sized bedrooms, four of which have superb en-suite bathrooms and good quality towels, plus plenty of living accommodation, including a well appointed kitchen, good TV and free WiFi. Secondly, it is in an ideal location; only a few minutes walk from the port of Mgarr with all it's fabulous restaurants & bars, yet placed in a quiet area of Ghajnsielem, which has an excellent supermarket that means you don't have to travel to Victoria for supplies, plus several restaurants and bars that represent brilliant value for a quick meal or Cisk! Finally, the pool and terrace are high quality, with gas barbeque and sun-loungers to relax in the hot afternoon sun. Mention has been made previously of the internal spiral staircases. Whilst these could be daunting for some, with a party of 8 covering various age-ranges, there was no difficulty selecting rooms and the top-floor bedroom was actually hotly contested.
We all had a fabulous time. Alice Cuschieri, the owner was extremely helpful in booking cars and taxis for us and kept in contact throughout our stay to make sure everything was running smoothly.i

Thank you very much for your nice review. It was a pleasure hosting you! We did our best to furnish and finish Ta Vitor to high standards, to make our clients feel comfortable and welcome in it. Should you be visiting Gozo again, it would be a pleasure hosting you again.

“Great home base to explore Gozo”

We rented the house for a week with a group of friends and children. Place is great, there is a lot of room and nice kitchen. The village is peaceful and has all the needed services. The harbor village Mgarr is on walking distance and has more great restaurants. It's very easy to walk, drive or take bus any destination on Gozo from here. The island of Malta is also easily accessible with the ferry.

Both kids and adults loved the private pool. Only problems are the inside stairs, they are very narrow and steep. And only way to the third floor. So the last bedroom is not that accessible, and most need the usage of out door stairs. The outdoor stairs are great at least on the summer though.

“Ideal place for late sun break”
Reviewed 28 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

8 of us (ages 4 to 80) stayed at farmhouse in the first week of October. We found the farmhouse very comfortable.
It is situated in the heart of a sleepy village. there are few bars/restaurants on the main square near by and there is also a supermarket close to the accommodation. There are more restaurants down in the harbour, which can be reached by bus (outside of supermarket) or walked to in 15min, just note that the walk is along a busy road and that there is no pavement for some parts of it.

The quality of decorations and fitting was high. The Kitchen is well equipped with more than enough kitchenware (though it would benefit from a dishwasher - with this number of there were always volunteers to wash up and perhaps an electric kettle). I would say that the farmhouse is nicer in real than on pictures, just some photos makes some areas look slightly bigger than in reality, in particular the courtyard and the pool. The farmhouse can potentially sleep up to 12-13 people but I think that it would be hard to find enough room for that number of people to sunbathe or dine outside at the same time.
All of us really liked the accommodation. All bedrooms were well equipped and nicely decorated. Beware that the stairs leading to the bedroom on the second floor are very steep and I would not recommend this bedroom for young children or elderly people.

Overall nice holiday in the sun (it was much warmer than we expected), recommended to people who want a relaxing break away from hustle and bustle of typical holiday designations.
