“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

Had a lovely week in this beautiful house in Xaghra. Very spacious and comfortable and acts as a superb base to explore Gozo.
Xaghra itself is very pretty, particularly the square which is only a 5 minute walk from the house. You'll find 5 or 6 restaurants in the square and every one we tried was brilliant.
Would thoroughly recommend staying in this house.

“Beautiful House, great location!”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Had two fantastic weeks in Ta Dratta- very spacious, lovely high ceilings and large rooms. All very tastefully finished in local stone, nice furnishings and UK pug sockets, All rooms had ceiling or plug-in fans, which was all we needed. The pool was lovely and we made good use of the BBQ. We were a short walk from the town square where we had great food - good range of restaurants. There's a well stocked local shop and butcher, and Lidl supermarket was a short drive. We hired one car between 2 small families and this worked well. We also used the local bus service a little. Lots of interesting things to see on the island including historical sites and beach/ water activities. People were super friendly, and Ivan (owner) was very helpful. Highly recommended for families!!!

Ta' Dratta is a lovely, spacious house set within 5 minute's walking distance of the gorgeous town of Xaghra. There were a few wonderful restaurants in the town, which we enjoyed eating at without having to drive.

With Gozo being such a small island, we found the location perfect for exploring the island (Ivan kindly arranged for car hire for us through an excellent agency), with the capital of Victoria being a 5 minute drive away. Lovely beaches were again very close to hand.

Ivan & Pierre have given thought to the details and the house has everything you would need for a holiday - from beach umbrellas to a variety of kitchen utensils. We were a group of three families, with children ranging from 2 years to 5 years old, so stayed in most evenings and used the big built in BBQ. A note on using the house with young children, you need to be careful about quite low windows. All houses in Gozo seem to be styled in this way, so it's just an extra consideration.

We found the house and pool area very clean and were impressed with a generous welcome basket on arrival. Communication with Ivan and PIerre was excellent, and they did all they could to make sure we had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday.

“Great !”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a wonderful time in Gozo and in Villa Ta-Dratta at June . The Ivan arranged for us a transfer from airport to villa, and helped to hire cars. The villa was perfect - big bedrooms, full equipment kitchen, beautiful view, refreshing water pool.
The unique Ramla Bay is only 10 min. by car. There is the bus stop near villa. You can easily walk to the Xaghra center, church, cozy restaurants, shopping centers and to ,, Lino's stables'' where you can spend nice time riding and taking care of horses.
We are really thankful to Ivan Attard.

“Felt like our own little bit of traditional Malta, exceeding our expectations.”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

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.

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.
