About Warren Bugeja
Hi we are Peter and Warren Passionate about travel, always curious about life, food, history, art and natural beauty, we enjoy meeting new people, sharing who we are and finding out what makes people tick. Peter is a bon-viveur, a born entertainer and host, a Doctor by profession and ceramic hobbyist. Warren is an English Language Teacher and has worked in PR, Journalism, Complementary Health and occasionally organises cultural and food related events. We are both qualified masseurs, and love animals and laid back Mediterranean living, and are excited about welcoming you to Dar tal-Kaptan and our other accommodation. Making people feel welcome, safe, relaxed and acknowledged is what we do best. Hosting and providing a nurturing, re-energising and playful, positive environment is what we have both always done in our respective homes in our free time. Therefore opening our doors to you is a natural extension of our innate lifestyle. The Maltese Islands have always prided themselves on their openness, friendliness and tolerance, something of a survival skill that came hand in hand with centuries of colonial rule.
Warren Bugeja purchased this Studio in 1998
