Ta Torri - Stunning Maltese Villa

Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Mqabba, Island of Malta
Formally a medieval hunting lodge, 'Ta Torri' is now a private villa, lovingly restored to provide simple accommodation surrounded by beautiful gardens.

The colonnaded path down the garden is one of only three remaining on the island and is just one of the features that makes Ta Torri truly unique. Surrounded by high walls, the villa affords complete privacy for sunbathing, swimming and outdoor dining.

The villa is situated on the outskirts of Mqabba, a quiet and beautiful Maltese village. It remains almost entirely free from tourists, unscarred from modern development, providing a ‘real’ Maltese experience.

Interaction with guests
Our friend and caretaker Robert is the best person to contact if you have any problems while staying at Ta Torri. Robert tends to the gardens and pool early in the morning each day. If there is anything you’d like him to take care of in relation to the property, please do ask. Alternatively you can call the owner (Margaret) directly if there are any issues. There is a house phone at Ta Torri available to take incoming calls only. Please answer if you hear it ringing – it will be Margaret calling to see if everything is OK!

I could not recommend Ta Torri highly enough. The house and the gardens are simply spectacular. I'd describe myself as well travelled and I've never stayed somewhere so special in my life. It's beautiful, quirky, magical and totally overwhelming. It's the perfect place to stay...More

If you want an out of the way private place to stay then this definitely fits the bill, the property is circa 300 years old, quite quirky and has loads of character, but what makes this place is the high walled totally enclosed garden with...More

About the neighbourhood
Mqabba is a quiet and beautiful Maltese village. It remains almost entirely free from tourists, unscarred from modern development, providing a ‘real’ Maltese experience.
Spending a night at the local Remissa bar chatting to locals and savoring the hospitality is a lovely way to while away an evening. Mqabba is a far cry from the tourist hotspots like St Julians and Sliema.
The deli, greengrocers and butchers in the village can cater for most of your food and drink needs.
Bread from Alfred has been sustaining us ever since we first started coming to Malta - it is wonderful! His bakery is just around the corner from Ta Torri, less than a minutes’ walk door to door. If you order your bread the day before it will usually be ready at
Getting around
We would advise hiring a car for getting around the island, depending on how much exploring you plan on doing.

The local buses are much improved and run a reliable service to the coast (to visit the blue grotto) or to the capital Valetta.

How to get there
Airport: Malta International: 3.0 km
Ferry: Grand Harbour: 8.0 km
The address is Ta Torri, Triq It-Torrivincenti, Mqabba, Malta.

From the Airport, follow the exit signs out of the airport onto the main road and take the first exit at the roundabout. Get in the right-hand lane. Continue through the tunnel under the runway (it is compulsory to put your lights on even during the day).

Take a right at the roundabout (signed for Mqabba), and straight on at the next roundabout (also signed for Mqabba).

As you approach Mqabba village, ignore the turn to the left signposted for ‘Mqabba Centre’ and keep going straight ahead. The road then becomes very narrow between the houses, please take care as this is a two-way road but there’s only room for one car to pass. Take a sharp right hand turn and follow the road around a left-hand bend. You have arrived! Ta Tor...
