“Lovely, cosy and well appointed holiday home in Central location”

Ta' Dratta is a lovely, spacious house set within 5 minute's walking distance of the gorgeous town of Xaghra. There were a few wonderful restaurants in the town, which we enjoyed eating at without having to drive.

With Gozo being such a small island, we found the location perfect for exploring the island (Ivan kindly arranged for car hire for us through an excellent agency), with the capital of Victoria being a 5 minute drive away. Lovely beaches were again very close to hand.

Ivan & Pierre have given thought to the details and the house has everything you would need for a holiday - from beach umbrellas to a variety of kitchen utensils. We were a group of three families, with children ranging from 2 years to 5 years old, so stayed in most evenings and used the big built in BBQ. A note on using the house with young children, you need to be careful about quite low windows. All houses in Gozo seem to be styled in this way, so it's just an extra consideration.

We found the house and pool area very clean and were impressed with a generous welcome basket on arrival. Communication with Ivan and PIerre was excellent, and they did all they could to make sure we had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday.

“Great !”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a wonderful time in Gozo and in Villa Ta-Dratta at June . The Ivan arranged for us a transfer from airport to villa, and helped to hire cars. The villa was perfect - big bedrooms, full equipment kitchen, beautiful view, refreshing water pool.
The unique Ramla Bay is only 10 min. by car. There is the bus stop near villa. You can easily walk to the Xaghra center, church, cozy restaurants, shopping centers and to ,, Lino's stables'' where you can spend nice time riding and taking care of horses.
We are really thankful to Ivan Attard.

“Felt like our own little bit of traditional Malta, exceeding our expectations.”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Ta'Dratta farmhouse was even better than we hoped .... So often we have found places don't quite live up to the photos but this time the photos didn't do it justice. The farmhouse is wonderful.

With 9 adults over 3 generations, we never at any time felt cramped or on top of each other. All the rooms were spacious and all the facilities you needed were there making it feel like a home from home.

Ivan organised transfers and car hire for us, and he and his wife were there to meet us as we arrived. They made us feel like their own guests rather than customers, the welcome basket of food and drink as we arrived was a really lovely gesture.

A lovely quiet village, perfect for a relaxing family getaway. So glad we found it.

“Stress free family break”

We booked a week at the Ta Dratta as a party of 11. Mr Attard was very helpful, getting additional cots, organising transfers and car hire and everything went like clockwork. The villa was ideal with a nice pool and plenty of room for the party to avoid getting on top of one another, the location was excellent with a short walk to the Xaghra village square with its 4 or 5 resturants and a five minutes drive to Marsaflorn and Victoria. It had the desired effect of creating a nice memory for the grandchildren of their holiday in Gozo.

“Beautiful, roomy and well equipped house with lovely pool and patio area”

people found this review helpful

Our family of 6 spent 2 weeks in Ta'Dratta and throughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very spacious, well furnished with a generous kitchen/living area and 5 bedrooms, although to be fair the 5th bedroom is only accessible via the main bedroom. The pool/patio area is lovely and we spend many happy hours in and around the pool. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed and we used the barbeque on the patio on several occasions. Parking outside the house was very straightforward and the house is 10 minutes walk from the main centre of Xaghra and the various restaurants and shops.
