About Frank Azzopardi owner
Having returned to Gozo after 20 years in Australia my wife and I decided to build a property to cater for the ever increasing tourist arrivals on the island. We now spend the majority of our day tending to the farmhouse and ensuring that our guests enjoy a happy and memorable stay In Ta! Giga. Meet and greeting of new guests is part of the service we provide and are available 24,7 for all your needs.
Frank Azzopardi owner purchased this Farmhouse in 2005
Why Frank Azzopardi owner chose Gharb
Ta Giga farmhouse is situated within walking distance of a number of excellent restaurants, supermarket, crafts village and both Gharb and St Lawrence town squares. It is also a short drive away from beautiful Dwejra Bay and Gozo's capital Victoria.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Ta Giga farmhouse is an ideal property to relax and laze away the day by the pool or alternatively as a base to explore the beautiful island of Gozo. Just imagine yourself with a bottle of wine on the terrace ,after a day exploring Gozo, on a tranquil Gozitan night gazing at the night sky with only the sound of a cool breeze which is one of the pleasures Ta Giga farmhouse can offer.

Small piece of heaven in Gozo
I booked the villa last year and Frank has been so helpful ever since. I had to add an extra night, changed the guests coming with me and at the last minute asked for help booking a car.
The villa has a shop next door and the craft market up the hill (2 mins), with a pharmacy and gift shop at the bottom of the hill.
The villa had all you need on holiday and the pool was fab...even if it was cold.
The layout of the villa over 3 floors suited us well as my niece's had the top floor giving them space to chill on their own, while my parents had the ground floor which suited my mum's limited walking ability.
I would absolutely love to stay here again.
It would be a pleasure to have you back again
The villa was lovely and very clean. The kitchen facilities are great which was good when we had 2 chefs with us. Frank was very helpful and attentive and done all he could to ensure all was in order for our stay. I would highly recommend staying here.
Beautiful farmhouse in lovely part of Gozo
We really enjoyed our stay at Ta Giga. Frank was super helpful in the run up to our trip, and the property was really clean and welcoming. It has so many bedrooms and bathrooms so feels really spacious, and the outdoor area with BBQ and sun loungers is great. Because of the high walls the pool area wasn't that sunny after mid-afternoon, but it felt very private. The local area is relatively quiet, and although there is a supermarket right next door (very handy) the local restaurants and bars weren't great, so you'd need to drive to find the better places to eat.
We stayed here with both my parents & my husband’s parents. Space for 2 cars outside, one floor for each couple, a bathroom each, spacious, clean, lovely views, private pool...
Peaceful yet with all amenities on the doorstep - Beautiful craftshops (serves great coffee in the cafe there!), gorgeous food at restaurant (walkable & very reasonable cost), supermarket just a few doors down (sells everything!), other coffee shops, restaurants, pharmacy, all on doorstop.
Sight seeing open top bus tour stops outside craft shop centre. Lots of safe running routes (centre of Gozo only 1.5 miles away). Definitely recommend! We shall return :-)
And Frank goes out of his way to be the perfect host - thank you!
Thankyou for staying in my farmhouse and your nice comments.
It was a pleasure having you as a guest.
Ta Giga is a Wonderful Gem
Ta Giga was exactly as described with a wonderful imposing entrance that is not pictured. We were able to park in front of the house although there is a basement garage. The house was very clean, and the owner Frank went out of his way to help us. He even volunteered to wait at the house while we went to dinner our first night because our airling was delivering our lost luggage. The TV and wifi worked fine, and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was very convenient. There is a supermarket several doors away and at least three good restaurants withing walking distance. One of Malta's Craft Villages is just down the street. We really enjoyed the craftsmanship in the house, and the top of the line decorations. Our security deposit was promptly returned, and we are pleased we chose to stay and would definitely recommend it.
Thank you I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay.Wishing you both the very best.
