Stress Free Family Break
We booked a week at the Ta Dratta as a party of 11. Mr Attard was very helpful, getting additional cots, organising transfers and car hire and everything went like clockwork. The villa was ideal with a nice pool and plenty of room for the party to avoid getting on top of one another, the location was excellent with a short walk to the Xaghra village square with its 4 or 5 resturants and a five minutes drive to Marsaflorn and Victoria. It had the desired effect of creating a nice memory for the grandchildren of their holiday in Gozo.

Beautiful, roomy.Guest comment entered by owner
Our family of 6 spent 2 weeks in Ta'Dratta and throughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very spacious, well furnished with a generous kitchen/living area and 5 bedrooms, although to be fair the 5th bedroom is only accessible via the main bedroom. The pool/patio area is lovely and we spend many happy hours in and around the pool. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed and we used the barbeque on the patio on several occasions. Parking outside the house was very straightforward and the house is 10 minutes walk from the main centre of Xaghra and the various restaurants and shops.

Had a wonderful stay at Ta Dratta, the farmhouse is large and in a quiet area. The bedrooms are large enough to accomodate two people comfortably but be aware, the twin bedroom which is linked to one of the double bedrooms is not suitable for small children as it has a steep spiral staircase leading up to it. The pool is a great place to relax and we had BBQ meals outside on the patio on quite a few evenings. Xaghra (spoken Shara) is a nice village with a beautiful church in the centre. Would definatley visit again but perhaps during the cooler months (August was extremely hot).

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.

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
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.

Warm welcome and pleasant vacation

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. The Mengels

2 Thumbs up!

I echo all the comments made by other guests. In addition: The rental process itself was very simple. Property had a lovely clean and airy atmosphere – a newness about it. Complements to the housekeeper. Also appreciated ,the lighting, beautifully worked out with character features highlighted. For us girlies, lots of mirrors and power points for our hairdryers! Ivan or Pierre was always available but never intrusive. The location was excellent although a car, in my opinion, is essential to really enjoy Gozo and pick up groceries. Depending on the time of year, if you like walking – download some walks off the internet. We did – it made a really great day. Research will also inform you of some of the lesser visited bays like Dahlet Qorrot bay, a real find with a stunning coastal walk. We would not hesitate to recommend this property. So a ‘two thumbs up’ from all of us, for Ta Dratta, and Gozo and thanks to all concerned!

We were a group of 10 girls, all 24/25 yrs old and we loved our holiday here on Gozo! The villa was perfect for us, it slept everyone very comfortably and there were enough facilities for us to get ready for the evening, without any queues for the bathrooms. We did a lot of cooking ourselves so it was great to have the bbq, and the kitchen/dining space is a great size for us all to help out. Some of us enjoyed the roof terrace whilst others preferred sitting by the pool – there was a good variety of space in the villa so that we could spread ourselves out. Pierre (the villa owner) helped arrange the car hire for us, which was perfect for the 10 of us to get around the island – we hired two cars, at very reasonable prices. He also arranged out transfer to/from Malta airport which went very smoothly. We were aiming to have a nice, relaxing holiday, which it was. But as a group of 10 girls, of course we’d like a bit of night life ? There are friendly, local bars down the road in Xaghra, where we appreciated the air-conditioning even at night. We found the drinks to be very cheap ? We did go to a club one night after talking to some locals - it’s called La Grotta and it was a short cab ride away from Xaghra, on the way to Xlendi. It was a great night, lots of dancing! In the daytime we did much of the same as the reviews below, and tried out the same restaurants. It was all great! I would definitely recommend a holiday on Gozo, and especially a stay at this beautiful villa! Many thanks!
