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....Formally a medieval hunting lodge, 'Ta Torri' is now a private villa, lovingly restored to provide simple accommodation surrounded by beautiful gardens.

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.
