  • An interesting attraction in terms of historical, associated with World War II. The building itself, however, not admire. The building is destroyed, no one cares about him. Access only by Jeep. If already there you will reach, you enjoy the beach.

  • This Mystic location has a great overview on the beaches of Cofete. The building itself is quite come down. A visit is possible, a donation appreciated. Unfortunately there is no hosting

  • I have always gone right pass the villa on my way to the Cofete beach. I have to say I found the visit underwhelming. The building is old and I didn't really like it. I heard that it had ties to the Nazis, but this wasn't apparent at all in its look. Wouldn't visit again. Maybe for just one visit it's fine, if you're on your way down to the beach.
  • Must see if you do the free tour inside with Pedro Fumero (owner) see his facebook page about the place showing when the German (not the turists) where there.
  • This villa build by Gustav Winter in 1930 is used after the war as a safe house for Hitler where he waited to continue his escape with a U-Boat to Argentina. Amazing!!
  • Nothing really to see there. Don't waste your time on the island with stupid myths. Go on the Cofete beach and experience the dramatic waves at the Atlantic ocean or walk for miles the sandy beach to Roque el Moro or Pared. But: Do not go for a swim … you are risking your life! Extreme dangerous rip curls occure at the beach!
  • While on Cofete, given the history, visiting this place is a no brainer. However, we were allowed to walk around the house's inner court, as well as into 2 of its rooms. Ultimately, we were on site for a mere 10 minutes - that was a little disappointing. On the up side, the local squirrels were fond of our bread sticks which they ate off our hands :)
