It has been a while since I last wrote in this blog.

The season is going very well and we are extremely busy. Once again we have had some wonderful guests and wonderful reviews featuring in our guest book and several other websites we advertise on. Always a 5 star rating which we strive to hold on to.

Above is a pre sunset photo of the bay behind the Fungus Rock in Dwejra. There may not be the lovely Azure Window standing anymore, but there is so much to see and explore in Dwejra during any time of the day. Early morning for a swim in the Inland Sea is one of my favourites and my next favourite is a walk up behind the Tower and round to the bay above at sunset. The best thing of all besides the stunning scenery is the peace and sounds of nature around you. 

So when on Gozo this is a 'must do', but sshhhh! don't spread the word we don't want everyone knowing about it!

Whilst many on the Islands have been celebrating Carnival, I opted for the quieter and more leisurley strole along country lanes to take some photos of nature at its best. The almond trees are in full blossom right now and are one of the pretiest sights to see . This almond tree is just around the corner from San Pupulju farmhouse.

Cannot believe January is already over. A new year and looking forward to meeting new guests, and old. Bookings are coming in quite fast now so please do not leave it too late to avoid disappointment. The weather at the moment is perfect, more like March/April than January, but, yet again, the island is desperate for rain. Hopefully we will have some soon so that we can enjoy the green of the country side a bit longer before it dries up with the heat of late spring and summer.

The end of another year and another successful season at Gozo Farmhouse Rentals.

We wish you a very Happy New Year and look forward to welcoming you at San Pupulju farmhouse in 2018.

This is just one of the truly amazing new Mosaics on the parvis of Ta' Pinu Basilica which is just a couple of minutes walk down the road from San Pupulju farmhouse. They truly are quite stunning.

Above is a picture of the Basilica of Ta' Pinu taken from our the roof terrace of San Pupulju. Work has just finished on some lovely mosaics which have been erected in front of the church.

The sunset photo was taken from the Salt Pans along the shore past Qbajjar. One of my favourite spots in Gozo.

It has been a very hot summer so far but, fortunately, we have some strong wind coming over the next 3 days which should give us some cooler temperatures. Whatever the weather, at the end of the day one of the most enjoyable moments is enjoying a drink looking out over the view in front of San Pupulju house above.

So far we have had a very hot summer with a heatwave a couple of weeks ago and higher than average temperatures ever since. On such hot days there is nothing better than cooling off in the refreshing pool at San Pupulju farmhouse or taking a cool dip in the sea at one of the nearby swimming spots.

Above is the quaint are of the boathouses down at the Inland Sea in Dwejra.

After some decent steady rain this winter, the fruit crop this summer seems to be a bumper crop. The figs have been delicious and the peaches lovely, sweet and messy to eat.....delicious! There are also the sweet cherry plums which we haven't seen for quite a while......the problem is you just cannot stop eating them. The melons have started early too. We are now looking forward to the fleshy Maltese tomatoes full of flavour and the best to make our traditional Hobz biz-Zejt (translated as bread with oil). To make this delicious snack you need a loaf of Maltese bread, slice it up. Cut a ripe tomato (and more) in half and spread it over the bread. Drizzle olive oil over the top, season with salt and pepper and scatter with capers and the remainder of tomato. Yummy!

We have started the 2017 season, and we are happy to say that it has started on an excellent note. We have, so far, been very blessed with hosting lovely guests. Below is the wonderful and colourful review we received in the visitors book - the first for 2017.

The news has been all over the world. Last week we lost our lovely Azure Window.

We had some very strong wind and heavy seas and the pillar gave way bringing the whole window down with it.

Gozo has lost its most popular tourist attraction and all of us, who have been brought up with the lovely natural structure, feel a great loss. Driving to Dwejra is just not the same - it seems so empty. 

There are, of course, other beautiful attractions down at Dwejra with the Inland Sea, Fungus Rock, fossil covered rocks, the Blue Hole for diving and swimming and the Dwejra Tower........but the star of them all is no longer there.
