The villa is built in a remote part of the island with only a dust track leading to it. The history of the villa is the subject of several conspiracy theories, often involving Nazis. The main conspiracy theories surround the fact that the villa had a tower turret with an electric lantern installed, similar to a lighthouse and that they were using the villas makeshift lighthouse to signal German U-boats.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Villa Winter by using our Cofete itinerary builder tool .

But the way is generally a small adventure, offers fantastic views and is really worthwhile.

It seems surreal, but the truth is that as you are telling you the story and shows you photos that he has taken in some concentration camps and they are so identical to what you see in the House, you begin to enter the doubts and think that something of reality can have that history. Do not charge for the visit although they have a safe to receive the will, if you want to collaborate. We went to see it with much skepticism and the truth is that we liked the visit.
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.
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!
Must to see it. View its amazing. Place have small museum. Its open in day time.
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.
