About Raymond Attard

Born and Bred in Malta and Gozo! Ex air traffic controller as a profession, lately company director of an import and manufacturing company. My wife Marianne and myself manage two beautiful holiday properties one of which is Ta Mananni.

Raymond Attard purchased this villa in 2000

Why Raymond Attard chose Qala

We converted ta Mananni way back in 1998 when we bought the land with a couple of rooms. Managed to convert to a delightful holiday villa withing two years from scratch. We recycled all the limestone which was available on site and which one can admire in today's Ta Mananni villa!

What makes this villa unique

The beautiful swimming pool is part and parcel of the villa, one does not exist without the other!

Ta' Mananni -Holiday villa with own private swimming pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This was our 4/5th stay at this house - so many now that we are losing count but I think that speaks volumes for how much we enjoy going to Raymond's villa. It is a beautiful and imposing house with masses of room for 6 people. The pool area is delightful and our granddaughters who joined us for several days with our daughter thoroughly enjoyed themselves swimming and playing in it along with Sparkle the unicorn (inflatable)!

The village of Qala has all you need for a quiet, away from it all break with small supermarkets that sell everything and several restaurants serving delicious food. As Gozo is so small, nowhere is much more than half an hour away so easy to get around and see all it has to offer.

Raymond is the perfect host and gentleman and nothing is too much trouble for him. I speak from the heart as I left items in the safe and after a panicky message from me he, in his completely unruffled way, promised to get them back to me. What a star!!

If you are looking for a great holiday in a beautiful house on a lovely island, we would recommend Ta' Mananni without hesitation.

Property of great character with excellent pool area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay a Ta Mananni. The property was well maintained and the people we met there were very welcoming and helpful (owner, handyman, pool guy, housekeepers). Even the local cat , Ginger, was super friendly. We especially loved the secluded pool area where we spent much of our time. The village Qala is lovely and the villa is well positioned to take advantage of the local bars, restaurants and mini markets (D-Bar was great). Gozo is beautiful with plenty to do there including exploring the beaches and the capital Victoria. We would definitely return to Gozo and this property. Thanks for a great stay Ray and staff.

A Lovely Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We are older people and had never been to Gozo before.We chose Gozo and not Malta itself for its reviews that suggested a quieter less congested place .

Ta Mananni, is a charming renovated and fully equipped three bedroom house ten minutes from the Malta/ Gozo ferry in Quala.Make sure you have good directions to the house. We arrived on the dark and hunted a bit to find the right entrance. If you go late ,take a flashlight!

The garden area is occupied by a lovely swimming pool and well supplied with loungers.We went late in the season and we had good sunny weather although the pool had cooled off a bit for old bones!

The house has all the equipment one could want including full kitchen,full bathrooms and washing machine

One needs a rental car to properly explore and we got one easily from the Valletta airport.about fourty minutes to the ferry and a thirty minute ferry ride see you there.

Parking outside is free and easy .In a few places,it can be crowded and a smallish car is a good idea as the roads and lanes are small

We had a lovely time,Raymond and his staff,housekeeper ,handyman pool msn are efficient and very pleasant and local restaurants are good for all tastes.

There is a good Lidl supermarket,excellent fish shop,excellent coffee and lots of local little stores.We went to the Opera as there is a Season on Gozo and this was an excellent production of Aida with some splendid voices.

We immersed ourselves in the history and buildings of Malta and Gozo ,had a lovely time and would highly recommend. this property.

A beautiful villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Ta Mananni is a beautiful three bedroomed villa in the lovely village of Qala. It is just a short drive from the harbour at Mgarr where the ferries dock from Malta.

It is well equipped and the courtyard and swimming pool are ideal for relaxing and eating after a morning exploring the island.

Ray, the owner, is extremely helpful both in arranging the booking, answering any questions and even popping in twice to meet us and making sure everything was ok. We have already booked to return next year.

I highly recommend Ta Mananni and Gozo itself.

Car: recommended

Gozo is an open air museum with Ggantija temples in Xaghra being the most visited in the whole of the Maltese archipelago. Ramla l Hamra beach is just a ten minute drive away, whilst hondoq ir Rummien is Qala's own pebbly beach. From April to end September every town and village has got its own patron saint and celebrations are well organised especially around the week end. Sub acqua diving is also well catered for by numerous PADI affiliated schools. Marsalforn and Xlendi are the coastal resorts where most restaurants and eateries are found. Eating out is very well catered with lots of fresh fish, pasta, fresh meats and local fruit and vegetables. Local wines and olive oils are not to be missed.

To make life at an easier pace from July 2011 new bus service in all of Malta and Gozo make car hire not totally essential. Please visit for more information and timetables.
