Romantic, calming, dreamy character house in the centre of the village

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
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.

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!

Just beautiful! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ta Drinu for a week in September 2014 and it was absolutely perfect. Such a beautiful, clean spacious house and so relaxing. The owners (Adrian and Mary Rose) have renovated the whole building beautifully with a jacuzzi the the living room. They are always at the end of the phone if needed and so helpful. The house is in Zabbar which is an easy 20 minute bus ride from the centre of Valletta. There is a well kitted out kitchen with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, kettle etc. There was even a welcome pack of bread, cheese, milk, water, biscuits etc waiting for us when we arrived. Zabbar is a very friendly place with a coffee shop, bakery, pharmacy and small supermarket. There is a bigger supermarket 15 minutes walk away. The nearest restaurants are a 30 minute walk away by the waterfront in Birgu. We bought a weekly ticket for the local buses for 6.5 euros which was superb. The buses throughout Malta are air conditioned and regular. We really enjoyed Mdina, Rabat (catacombs), the Saluting Battery (good views), the WW2 Museum in Birgu and generally strolling through Valletta looking at the many historic buildings. All the restaurants we visited were good but particularly those on Archbishop St in Valletta. The Civil Service Club restaurant was pricey but a real treat. I would 100% recommend Ta Drinu and will be telling all my friends about it.
