Unwind and be pampered at this charming, family-run B&B on the rugged Mediterranean island of Gozo.

Experience true Gozitan culture whilst staying in the traditional Maltese building that houses Charming B&B Dar Ta’Zeppi. Wander around the lush gardens, sip a cocktail whilst lounging by the pool and check out the handsomely constructed building with its quaint arched windows and stone bricks adorned with bougainvillaea. The outdoor terrace, garden and pool have been decorated with beautiful artworks by Tanja & local artists which you can observe as you unwind.

The hotel is run since 2003 by Tanja, a Belgian who fell in love with the island of Gozo when she first visited on holiday 19 years ago. The B&B has a cosy, familial aura and is named after Tanja’s husband’s uncle Giuseppe. The literal translation is House from Zeppi or Zeppi’s House. At Dar Ta’Zeppi, you’re sure to make connections with the owners and other guests. Tanja and Vincent are attentive and caring but understand when to leave their guests to enjoy some privacy. They anticipate their guests’ needs and take care of them whether by arranging their dinner reservations or chartering a boat for a day out at sea. Your stay at Charming B&B Dar Ta'Zeppi is filled with relaxation, creativity, and warmth.

The best of breakfasts

Dar Ta’Zeppi’s breakfasts are renowned. Myriad colours and tastes will tempt you as you sit down to a homemade breakfast including fresh, local jams, cheese, meat, and vegetables. Each day a new selection of items sources from neighbouring farms and local producers will be presented to delight you. 

If you’d like another meal during the day, simply mention it at breakfast and you’ll find yourself with a delicious fish, meat, or vegetarian meal later. At Dar Ta’Zeppi, your wishes are the most important thing so each meal will be adapted to your preferences. Tanja’s BBQ in the garden is a real favourite with guests. 

Explore the location

Charming B&B Dar Ta’Zeppi is in the centre of Qala on Gozo. It’s situated between two little squares that nonetheless teem with village life. Here you can find four excellent restaurants and a bar that plays live jazz classics. The closest beach is just a 15-minute walk away, with others a 10-minute cycle or 30-minute walk. The closest supermarket is a four-minute walk away and the capital, Victoria, is 15 minutes away by car. Gozo doesn’t have an airport so travellers should fly into Malta International Airport and then take a short 25-minute ferry from Cirkewwa. The entire island is just 67 km² so it’s very quick to travel around by car.

  • Saving energy and water by collecting and guiding the rainwater to the well
  • carefully maintaining the machinery and energy consumption
