I was so glad to hear that you and your friends had such a good time at the farmhouse. I guess the pool would be just a little chilly at the start of May, so well done for getting in!
The farmhouse is deceptively spacious and yet still cosy and characterful at the same time. The large rear deck area with plentiful seating and dining is certainly one of the farmhouse's delights.
We hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for your lovely review and I'm so glad you had such a wonderful stay at Razzett Ta' Marija. It is true that the farmhouse has everything you need, it's an ideal place for R&R. It is good advice regarding the bus time-tables as they do change seasonally. In addition to the time-tables at the stops you can also take the most recent time-table from the bus office, which is located at the main bus terminus in Victoria. I hope your trip back to Australia went well.
