“Wonderfully relaxing”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was the first time that we had booked our accommodation and flights separately, having in the past always booked package holidays. Everything from the initial enquiry to the departure was easy and efficient. Raymond is very attentive and responds very quickly to emails. Any queries or problems are dealt with immediately.
The accommodation is spacious and well kept and is certainly large enough for 6 people. The kitchen is very well stocked and the owner also kindly left a 'Welcome pack', very useful. He popped into see us once during our 10-night stay but was on-hand (via email) at all times.
The pool was larger than I had expected (a pleasant surprise!). We stayed during a heatwave - daytime temp's around 40 degrees, and even night-time not much below 28 - air-con was a must!
Gozo itself is lovely and not at all commercialised. The capital, Victoria is good to have a 'mooch about'. Great views from the Citadel. The locals are extremely friendly (& all speak English!) and we were invited to the village feast to celebrate St. Joseph (they do like a celebration!). Road signs are non-existent in Gozo. In Malta they are there for 'guidance only' ;-)
Tip - the mosquitos are biting during the day as well as evenings.
Despite that, it was a fabulous and relaxing break. Thank you Raymond.

“A perfect holiday home”

Ta Mananni is a beautiful villa in the village of Qala, Gozo. Ray, the owner, kept us fully informed regarding booking arrangements and arriving and departing. He is a very friendly man who popped in twice to see us and we have already booked to return again next year.

Three of us shared the villa but there is room for many more. The three bedrooms all have ensuite facilities, one bedroom is on the ground floor so if anyone in your party has any difficulties with stairs it would be ideal. The interior is cool and it is very well equipped. The pool and surrounding courtyard is secluded and a lovely sun trap.

Qala is just a five minute drive from the harbour where the ferry from Malta arrives. It has a number of small supermarkets, bars and restaurants if you don't want to venture too far, but do, Gozo is a beautiful island with many interesting places to visit.

I highly recommend Ta Mananni.

“WONDERFUL HOLIDAY HOME”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

This was our first visit to Gozo and we (2 mature couples) loved both the island and Ta’ Mananni – surely the most perfect place to stay.

Firstly, the location couldn’t be better. The house itself is about a 10 minute stroll from the lovely central square of Qala, a large pretty village with several good restaurants and bars, 3 small well-stocked mini-markets and a pharmacy. It is also a minute or so from a beautiful elevated view of the sea and harbour and a good bar/restaurant which shares the view.

As to the house, the property description is entirely accurate but the reality exceeded expectations. The villa is fantastic, very spacious with lovely stone floors, broad corridors and staircase and large airy rooms. It is extremely well maintained and equipped and lacked nothing we needed during our stay, including very comfortable beds and an excellent wifi connection. The outside space is lovely with plenty of room around the beautiful pool for relaxing and outside dining. It is all very private and quiet.

Raymond is a lovely man and a great communicator and everything went smoothly from our first contact, he is also a great source of information! It was a pleasure to meet him when he visited us at the house.

Gozo is an easy-going interesting destination and we enjoyed spending the mornings exploring in our rental car before returning to Ta’ Mananni for afternoons lazing around the pool. It is notable that the Gozitans are the most friendly people you could meet and they made us feel most welcome visitors to their beautiful island.

A wonderful holiday!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at this villa for 12 nights at the beginning of October, having booked it over a year previously. All correspondence with Raymond prior to our arrival was dealt with in an efficient and friendly manner. He even came to the villa with a bottle of wine to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. He is a true gentleman.

The house was well equipped and easy walking distance to the village square, where there are a selection of excellent restaurants. We also used the stone built BBQ and ate outside on a few occasions.

We were lucky with the weather; it only rained one day, but seemed to get hotter the longer we were there. We made the most of the huge roof terrace to maximise the breeze during the day.

To summarise; if you want to relax and be peaceful in an excellent house, located in a gorgeous village surrounded by friendly people then Ta Mannani is the place for you. With British Airways recommencing their flights to Malta from Gatwick on 30/3/14, we are looking to come back again in 2014. Thank you Raymond for such a great experience.

“Lovely villa in peaceful location”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and i stayed here in September. The villa is extremely spacious with all ensuite facilities for each bedroom. The coolness of the villa and bedroom ceiling fans made it more comfortable as it was very humid at the time. The villa has everything you could possibly want in terms of facilities and was very clean with lovely, tasteful furniture.
The location was very peaceful and Qala is a small,pretty, quaint village , we enjoyed exploring. The people were so friendly and helpful. As Gozo is so small, it was easy to visit round the island and return to the villa for a rest by the pool at the end of the day.
The pool area is really lovely, with a spacious deck and bbq and eating area.The sun beds are all of a high quality with comfortable cushioning. There are other villas nearby but it's so quiet we only heard the sound of insects buzzing. Our grandkids visited and had a great time splashing and swimming in the pool too.
All in all i would recommend this villa, Raymond, the owner, is a lovely man who took the time to visit to say hello in person and make sure we had what we needed.
I look forward to a return trip
