The de Trafford family, owners of Villa Bologna, have once again chosen Island Caterers as the exclusive event organizers and caterers at the 18th century villa and gardens. Villa Bologna, in Attard, is one of Malta’s most magical and exclusive event venues. Hidden behind the walls of the Villa is a secret garden that is the most idyllic setting for weddings, private lunches and dinners and corporate events.
