About the Owner

Having lived on the islands 19yrs I suppose I can now be classed as a local, formerly from Manchester in the UK. Needless to say I love the islands and the most prominent factor being the people of Malta, warm heart, sense of humour, respectful, strong family morals just about sums it up! Oh yes, to mention of course the super weather we are blessed with, after many years of rainy summers in England I am not only blessed with sunshine, but my darling local lady Carrol.

We enjoy eating out, especially Carrol..! You can be sure to enjoy some fine restaurants all over the islands, where quality is high on the menu with a great local bottle of red to wash it down, yep the true Mediterranean Maltese way. Summer months are a delight to swim in crystal blue waters and a very warm sea, snorkelling is a must!

Please do ask any questions about the accommodation or the islands as a whole, I'm a well seasoned wealth of local knowledge after 19yrs I don't think there is much I didn't do, see or eat ;)

All the Best,

Paul & Carrol

Luxury farmhouse perfect for large group

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed at Tal - Magna including 6 adults, 3 children and 1 infant. The farm house itself was stunning and well equipped providing plenty of space for all of us to stay comfortably. The kitchen was a good size with all the amenities we needed (dishwasher, oven, large hob and fridge/freezer) the rest of the property boasted 3 outdoor and 2 indoor dining areas as well as a lounge, parlor, 5 bedrooms (all with air-con) and numerous indoor and outdoor toilets/bathrooms. On top of this a large pool, bbq area with outdoor fridge, hot tub, washing machine, WiFi and sun flower garden were also available. We opted for collection from the airport and drop off which all went smoothly and our driver even made a stop so we could buy pastizzi en route.

The farmhouse is situated down a quiet road on top of a large hill with views of Golden Bay, farmland and the local town of Mgarr. Mgarr, a 20 minute walk, was large enough for the basics - small supermarkets, restaurants and small bars. Other than this 2 bus services run twice an hour which will take you all the way to Valletta in 50 minutes passing through Mosta and other larger towns. The bus stop was a 5 minute walk from the farm house. The price was 2 euros (adult) for a single journey which is valid for 2 hours if you need to swap buses any where. Although we had rented a car and never took the bus to the beach I would guess this would take 10 - 15 minutes maximum. Renting a car meant that we could see more of the island however the bus routes are very good and the services are frequent.

We would recommend this property to any large group visiting Malta as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and holiday. We would recommend reading the booking conditions thoroughly as there were some terms that were not made entirely clear. Firstly the electricity consumption is limited to 350 units anything over this is charged at 30cents a unit. We stayed for 8 days, used aircon in all bedrooms every night and also used the television, dishwasher, WiFi and charged all our devices nightly after our 8 days we had an extra bill of 40 euros only.

As well as this a cash deposit of 500 euros must be made on arrival as the farm house contains a large collection of decorations, artifacts and expensive furnishings. When checking out a walk around was conducted and our entire deposit was returned.

All in all an amazing holiday, great location, friendly helpful people and brilliant memories.

Dream Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have from just returned to Ireland from a wonderful week at Tal Magna. This is a lovely large villa as we had a wide range of ages in our group from grandparents to 2 toddlers this gave us plenty of privacy. The rooms are very spacious and airy and the air con works very well! The villa is just lovely and it was so clean when we arrived! The pool is a perfect place to get into and relax. A few recommendations: Blue Lagoon is a must, Mdina is the most beautiful place I have been and you should definitely take a trip to Gozo. The area was very quiet, we did hire a car which was very useful. Mary the lady who checked us in was very helpfull. AMAZING property, traditional, characteristic but with modern features, very spacious for a large group, well equip with everything you need. I would recommend any group to stay at this villa and we plan to return in the future.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malta International Airport at 17 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Mgarr at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Cirkewwa for Gozo ferry at 7 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Royal Malta Golf Club at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Mgarr at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Golden Sands at 2 Kilometres Car: recommended

Ghajn Tuffieha (meaning “The Apple’s Eye”) is made up almost entirely from agricultural land with the quaint villages of Manikata and Mgarr coming under its district boundary, the area boast some of Malta’s finest beaches such as Golden Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha, Gnejna Bay of which Golden Sands is the more popular, the prettiest is a matter of self preference. Enjoy walking at its best as within Ghajn Tuffieha some of Malta’s most popular rural walks can be found here, whereupon Roman archaeological remains can be found and explored the views from the coast are spectacular with the sunset a popular ‘to do’ on many visitors note pads. Ghajn Tuffieha is without doubt a peaceful area of Malta, yet just a short drive of 5 minutes finds you in St. Pauls Bay or Mosta, with Mgarr being less than 2 minutes away.
