From the booking process through to getting there, both the owners and the housekeeper next door were available.
For the 9 of us our age range was 12-72 and the Villa was just a perfect place to stay. The pool was enjoyed by all and the size of the Villa absolutely suited big family meals. The A/C helped through the night, great contrast of modern Kitchen and bathrooms mixed with traditional décor. Easy walk to bars, restaurants and shops as well as bus stops to beaches and other areas. We did think of getting a car but with a bit of planning the buses and taxis were a better option for us. Highly recommended. Thanks, Lee
Amazing property, superb location within a stroll away from fantastic restaurants and bars. Easy to get around the island, nothing's far from here. Beach,city and harbours are all within a short drive away. All rooms are beautiful and clean. The roof terrace was a super place to have a glass of local wine and watch the sun go down. Definitely worth a visit!!!! Thank you Craig and Andrea.
Perfect house.very comfortable, not like a rental, more like a home from home as very well equipped.Lovely location, easy 1 minute walk to square, which we thought had nicest atmosphere inGozo. All the restaurants serevd great food, in fact we enjoyed better food than on Malta. Easy 5 minute walk to temples. Sun at this time of year on back of house so we didn't sit around pool, but in summer when higher in the sky I guess it would probably get more sun.
We arrived on a Friday afternoon tired from our journey and were met by Rita who welcomed us with a warm smile. The villa itself was perfect in every sense and was exactly as the photos we saw when booking the villa initially. You have everything you need to help make your holiday go smoothly. The kids loved the pool and it was cleaned almost everyday. Then location of the villa is great as it allows you to visit All the attractions easily without having to travel to far. The square in Xaghra has everything you need from fabulous restaraunts to cash machines and even supermarkets for your supplies. We visited most of Gozo during our stay and would recommend the following beaches , Ramla Bay and Xlendi Bay both very accessible and well worth the visit. We eve got the opportunity to visit Malta for a day trip although would say you need more time to see all the attractions although the Aquarium is great for kids and the War rooms for history is great as well. If you do decide to visit Malta we can recommend Amir Bay as a secluded beach away from all the main beaches and much quieter as well. All in all our visit was fantastic from the Villa to the food the weather and of course the friendly people of Gozo. Thanks Craig and Andrea for allowing us to stay and enjoy the delights.
Everything was great about our family holiday to Gozo. Gozo is lovely; it feels authentic and unspoilt by tourism, and the people are genuinely friendly. As a Brit abroad it is an easy destination as English is widely spoken, they drive on the same side of the road as us and even use UK 3-pin plugs! Xaghra is the nicest village with a busy market square offering good quality cafes and restaurants and there is a good selection of shops for your day to day needs. All this is within a two minute walk from the villa.
And so to the villa. It is gorgeous and has been renovated and equipped with great care, taste and attention to detail by the owners. Everything you could possibly need has been provided, even towels for the beach (so you can pack light), and everything is of good quality. This is a very comfortable and spacious villa and we felt right at home and very relaxed from the moment we arrived. Especially appreciated were the lovely pool area, roof terrace to watch the sun setting, the well equipped kitchen and the really comfy beds. The property caretakers Rita and Frans live next door and were very helpful and dealt promptly with any queries we had.
We stayed for two weeks with our three teenage sons and it was probably the best family holiday we have had. There were so many fabulous moments but our top three highlights would be snorkelling in the wonderfully clear sea, watching horse (harness) racing through the streets of Victoria (so exciting!), and coffee and cake at Cafe Reale in Xaghra village square whilst watching the world go by. Would I return? Yes, definitely, in a heart beat!
This was our first Visit to the lovely Island of Gozo and it far exceeded expectations, starting with this beautiful 3 storey house that has been renovated to an exceptional standard, with modern features and comforts, whilst maintaining many of its original features, from the grand chandeliers to the stone fireplaces and original beams and stonework.
The kitchen is superbly equipped and modern, with a dining area that can hold a banquet for many.All the bedrooms are large and have character with the master suite having a roof top balcony with stunning views.
The garden forecourt has a beautiful pool and waterfall, with outdoor cooking facilities. It is the attention to detail and high spec furnishings and fittings that make staying here so enjoyable!
There are very good restaurants and bars a 30 second walk away in the main square, and the island itself has many beautiful villages and coastal areas to explore!
We will return and can highly recommend Dar Ta Nina
Lovely villa. Superb indoor living space and very elegantly furnished. Well equipped and very comfortable.
Balconies off the upstairs 3rd floor master bedroom, which is a delight, became a regular pre dinner cocktails and canapés area. Of the 5 bedrooms the 3 we used were lovely. The twin bedroom (not used) is a little small but would be suitable for 2 children and the downstairs double (not used) is OK but not as good as the 3 we used.
Aircon if you need it is on a meter downstairs. Not too expensive we had it on a few nights and it cost about 6 euros per night.
Villa is very convenient for the village centre. 200m to the restaurants.
Pool area is a little on the small side but we had a bbq their 2 nights and it worked very well.
Maria who looks after the property lives next door and was very helpful.
Car parking is on the road at the top. Can get busy but we always found spaces for the two hire cars we had. (These were hired at Malta airport and we came across on the ferry with them - no problems.
