Many new luxury farmhouses have popped up to cater to increasing numbers of tourists. The Ta’ Mena Estate is one of the most popular estates among agritourists visiting Gozo. It is also situated just a short walk from the Marsalforn fishing village, and just 3km away from one of the most picturesque parts of the island’s coastline.
Agritourism in Gozo is much more than just living on farms since tourists also get a prime opportunity to interact with agriculture. You can pick fruits off trees, feed livestock or even make wine at a local winery. Some farmhouses let you harvest grapes and olives and then take part in olive-oil pressing and wine-making.
