About the property

A one bedroom character home sleeps up to 4 people

Set in an alley, this house has been renovated in an elegant way, yet keeping all of its charm and character that have been tied to it from the days it was built around 400 years ago. Walking about 50 metres into the alley one finds Ta' Drinu, and on entering the house, one finds a small yard with plants and a water feature. Upon entering the house one finds himself in a 42 square meter living room with round sofa, jacuzzi, and 46 inch LED TV. Next to this room is a separate dining room, a well equipped kitchen, and a shower room. A staircase from the living room leads to the bedroom with en suite shower and a 50 square meter roof terrace with garden, outdoor sofa, dining table for 4 and BBQ.

About Adrian & Mary Rose Zammit

Mother of three and hence quite busy all year round! I work from home and together with my husband we take great care of our properties. We love old houses and adore restoring them to their original beauty!

Adrian & Mary Rose Zammit purchased this house in 2011

Why Adrian & Mary Rose Zammit chose Island of Malta

As soon as we entered the property, even though it was in a really bad state, we fell in love with it and instantly knew it had a great potential to be transformed in a beautiful and romantic holiday home.

What makes this house unique

The 45 square meter mill room with unique pointed arches and the lovely sunny terrace make the house very attractive.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. We were hospitably entertained. Everything is there for a relaxed holiday. We have been here four days . The hot tub in the living room has a nice view to the sky , really great. The courtyard and roof terrace are a must to stay nice in the evening. Middle of a city in a dead end street . Highly recommended for those who want to get away from a cozy weekend or week

Ta Drinu

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I had a wonderful 5 day break in the Ta Drinu.

Mary Rose and Adrian have done an amazing job of renovation to a historic house and the jacuzzi was very welcome after a days walking.

Everyone was so friendly in the local village and the harbour bars & restaurants of Birgu were only 30 mins walk.

We would thoroughly recommend.

This stunning apartment was PERFECT for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I stayed at Ta Drinu for a week after our wedding. Right from the initial contact to arriving at the villa to leaving after our stay, Adrian and Mary Rose always did things professionally and in a warm and friendly manner. They went above and beyond what was required of them. Ta Drinu is a stunning apartment and it was the perfect place for our stay. It's easy to explore the rest of the island from Zabbar (we used local buses throughout our stay - 6 .50 euros each for the whole week!) but equally, the apartment is nice enough to spend a day in relaxing. We HIGHLY recommend it!
