Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Bright and Airy/Clean

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

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! :)

Ta*Dratta, Gozo

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This place is no doubt the best place to stay on Gozo. Everything is perfect! It is quiet, nicely decorated, very comfortable and clean. We particularly enjoyed the superb private pool and terrace. A grocery store is at 5 min walk and the small village with some good restaurants at 10 min walk. We will certainly come back!

Great 2 Weeks Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Warm welcome and pleasant vacation

  • 5 of 5

We'd like to thank Mr. Ivan Attard and his wife for their welcome and hospitality. When arriving, the farmhouse surprised us with the love the Attard family has put into the restructure, interieur and every centimeter of the premise. The castle like inside, the large windows and the high ceilings give the feeling of space and freedom. We really enjoyed the stay and even four month later, our kids say to us "when do we return to Goooozooo".

We have enjoyed quiet Gozo, the lovely landscapes and cliffs and the close beaches. We enjoyed the friendly and relaxed inhabitants and the shopping in Rabat (Victoria) as well.

Definetly we will return as soo as possible to Gozo and the Ta' Tratta farmhose.
