Fantastic House on a lovely Island
Ivan is brilliant to communicate with and very helfull. The house was very clean and it looked better than in the pictures. We had a lovely time. The only thing I would change is to put air conditioning in the top bedroom for heatwave times! The location was also great, near the square in Xaghra where we had great food in Olympic Restaurant, great local supermarkets and not far by car from anywhere! Thanks Ivan x
Thank you so much for your comments Vicki. It was my pleasure hosting you.
A wonderful house in a lovely village
The house is a beautiful traditional stone house on a quiet lane in the village. It is beautifully restored and has amazing high ceilings and views over the surrounding farmland, and you can see the sea from the front bedrooms and roof.
There are loads of bedrooms, plenty of space for a big group and the pool area is lovely - it's get sunshine but there are also areas of shade for when it is really hot. The pool is great, but very deep!
It's a 10 minute walk into the village - the square is an amazing place to eat or drink and watch the world go by. When we were there there was a 2 week build up to a festival, and every night there was some incredible event in the square that the whole island seemed to turn up for! Historical re-enactments, a huge feast one night, parties, bands, incredible! It made getting a table for dinner a nightmare though, I imagine it's very quiet when there isn't a festival on. Wouldn't have missed it though.
We were worried that Gozo may be a little too quiet for us, but this did not prove to be the case. The village is really well located and everything is close, we saw most sights in a day. There are two amazing beaches very near the house, one was probably the best beach I have ever seen in the Med, amazing water, beautiful sand. Go!
Bright and Airy/Clean
Although Ta Dratta sleeps 10 there were 7 in our party and there was a lovely fresh airy feel to this well appointed farmhouse. Ivan was completely charming and gave us a warm welcome and farewell. Once we had mastered the bus routes we were very happy on our 10 day break and would highly recommend this farmhouse to family and friends.
We were a group of 3 families and we all liked the Ta dratta house on the first sight! It is nice, spacious, and clean, with a wonderful terrace and nice swimming pool.
The kitchen is well equipped and 3 fully furnished bathrooms were great "time saver". Its location is perfect for short trips around Gozo - we saw most of the nice places on the island and we never drove longer than for 25 min... :) The owner was very helpful during the whole stay and helped with all our inquiries. I can definitely recommend this holiday house to everyone! :)
We thoroughly enjoyed being at Gozo/Malta and at Ta' Dratta. It is an attractive and spacious farmhouse which easily has room for a big family like ours, 11 altogether. We greatly appreciated the warm welcome we received and the equally warm farewell.
Great 2 Weeks Relaxation
The photographs of Ta’ Dratta on the website are beautiful but cannot do it full justice, Ta’ Dratta farmhouse has been tastefully restored to its original condition, it is spacious, more so then is apparent in the photographs, light and very well appointed. Eight of us stayed there for two weeks in August, the hottest time of the year and we felt very comfortable, the high ceilings, thick limestone walls and ceiling fans kept us cool in the August heat. The pool area was a real focal point for both the children and adults alike, the pool itself is deeper then it appears in the photographs and is great for relaxing in, it is also very private.
Ivan, his wife and his brother are very friendly and made us feel very welcome, they were also readily available if needed.
Ta’ Dratta is situated within a short walking distance of a mini supermarket and we found all necessities were easy to find. An additional bonus while we stayed was a fruit lorry that stopped right outside the farmhouse every morning, selling fresh fruit and also other useful items. Xaghra itself is fairly central and anywhere on Gozo is only a short drive away, we also found the main square at Xaghra, which is again only a short walking distance from the farmhouse to be the best in Gozo, it contains some shops, a beautiful church and is a beautiful setting in which to sit outside to eat at one of the restaurants there.
The people of Gozo were very friendly, we very much enjoyed out stay in Gozo and have no hesitation in recommending Ta' Dratta as a place to stay.
Situated in one of the most picturesque villages on the island of Gozo - Malta. The world famous Ggantija Temples (the oldest man-made structures in the world), Ta' Kola Windmill, Ramla Bay, Calypso Cave and the Toy Museum are only minutes away.
Close to all amenities and lovely restaurants and bars in the village square for dining al-fresco. Area is near the best walking trails on the island.
