What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Ta Mananni did not disappoint on any level. We had fantastic weather all week and a beautiful place to come back to each evening.

The villa is incredibly spacious; had everything we needed and was very nicely presented. The air-conditioning was very useful for the hot nights!

Raymond has been a superb host throughout and we were particularly pleased with the level of communication - nothing was too much trouble for him. He responded quickly and thoughtfully to all our emails, giving us plenty of very useful information and tips. Raymond made us feel very valued as guests from our initial enquiry right through to our return home.

There are still many things we want to do on Gozo and would return to Ta Mananni without question. Thank you, Raymond!

This was our 4/5th stay at this house - so many now that we are losing count but I think that speaks volumes for how much we enjoy going to Raymond's villa. It is a beautiful and imposing house with masses of room for 6 people. The pool area is delightful and our granddaughters who joined us for several days with our daughter thoroughly enjoyed themselves swimming and playing in the pool along with Sparkle the unicorn (inflatable)!

The village of Qala has all you need for a quiet, away from it all break with small supermarkets that sell everything and several restaurants serving delicious food. As Gozo is so small, nowhere is much more than half an hour away so easy to get around and see all it has to offer.

Raymond is the perfect host and gentleman and nothing is too much trouble for him. I speak from the heart as I left items in the safe and after a panicky message from me he, in his completely unruffled way, promised to get them back to me. What a star!!

If you are looking for a great holiday in a beautiful house on a lovely island, we would recommend Ta' Mananni without hesitation.

Ta Mananni is a beautiful house in a quiet and peaceful location but within walking distance of local shops and restaurants in Qala town square. It is also just a stone's throw from Xerri Il Bukkett, the restaurant overlooking Comino. This must be one of the most beautiful views on the island. The house itself is ideal for us because one of our party has slight mobility problems so the bedroom on the ground floor is perfect. The rest of the house is so lovely and the pool area delightful with plenty of outdoor furniture and bbq.

Raymond, the owner, is a perfect gentleman who could not look after his guests any better. We cannot praise him too highly.

There is a lot to see on the island and, because it is so small, nowhere is too far to travel. We did not hire a car this year or last, but used the services of a local taxi driver, Brian. We would not hesitate in recommending Brian. He provides a wonderful, caring service and nothing is too much trouble for him. In fact everything is "No problem"!! We believe the cost of doing this was no more expensive than hiring a car and there is obviously no problem with parking.

We have been to Gozo four times now, three of which have been to Ta Mananni so we think that speaks for itself.

Amazing villa - just what we needed, in a quiet local, amazing great sized pool & very spacious accommodation.

Raymond is super helpful before & during your stay Raymond is great to get pointers from for great things to do/see. We were also very lucky to meet Raymond face to face, a great guy.

Qala (ala) was a very peaceful village but very close to all the other villages & some of the nicest beaches I've visited.

We will be back next year - I must say that we have used some of the bigger companies for villas eg James etc & their service wasn't a patch on Raymond & Marianne's hospitality.

I'd recommend Ta Mananni with bells on, a fabulous stay 😊

3km (10 minute drive). Ramla l-Hamra beach is Gozo's largest sandy beach and very family friendly. Qala's Hondoq ir Rummien is a pebbly beach within a five minute drive, very lively and well sheltered with spectacular views of Comino Island across Gozo Channel. Other lovely beaches include San Blas, Xlendi Bay, Mgarr ix Xini, Xwejni and Marsalforn.


The island is easily accessible by car (30 minute ferry crossing from Malta). Transfer from Malta airport can be easily arranged as well as car hire in Gozo. Otherwise we can help out car rental from Malta Int. Airport. . As from July 2011 direct bus service from Malta Int. Airport to Cirkewwa and rest of Gozo.


Qala is within a radius of twenty minute drive to all villages in Gozo. History abounds in all corners from Neolithic times to present. Vinyards and olive produce is on a spectacular increase with a very good wine festival organised in Nadur last week-end in August. Carnival is very well organised and authentic.

Further Details:

Food, such as fresh bread, vegetables and fish are delivered by street vendors up to your door. There are plenty of restaurants and one, with breathtaking views of the Island of Comino and Malta, is only a two minute walk away. From Gozo, one can take a day trip to Comino Island with its spectacular Blue Lagoon. Scuba diving and cruises around the island are easily arranged with local companies. Water skiing, windsurfing, cycling walking, horse riding, jet ski, snorkelling and swimming are easily available and there are a number of historical sites to visit.

Country walks during winter months is a relaxing way to visit the Island. Our mild winters rarely see temperatures dipping below 16 degrees daytime and 12 degrees night time.

Culinary wise restaurants cater very well in Mediterranean food with fresh fish, locally grown vegetables, pasta, pizza and a vast array of meats all at very reasonable prices. Local wines and olive oil is now a growing industry where the quality is better than northern European countries due to more hours of sunshine given our lattitude position.

Wine festivals are now also very popular with the Nadur one which is organised first week end in September the most renowned.

From Easter time to end of September every town and village has its own Festa every week end which is celebrated with much funfare.
