  • There are so many rumors about the ominous Villa winter, which was built during the 2nd World War. Unfortunately, the ravages of time eating more and more in the building, but always worth a visit.

  • We were on the road with the car on the island. The Villa winter at Cofete is a very nice attraction and beautiful destination in the region. Gladly we come back and very happy to recommend the destination.

  • You're planning a trip to your island with friends and include this villa in, wanting to know a little more history. We read about this House and it seemed to us to be somewhat interesting to see that intriguing, after a long journey through endless and poorly upgraded roads for driving, arrived at last exhausted this village! Excited about Peter the Lord that "he runs the property" and hear their discoveries. The first thing we find is that it is in terrible condition! Doors and windows shoring up badly and bungling that only worsen your State! Calling Peter again and again, he looks out a window screaming to us that we leave immediately! It was closed and there were dogs loose... our face was a poem of disgust, a kick of disappointment throughout the stomach... after so long journey! NOT WORTH IT YOU GO! Back to Morro del Jable and asking to close this House and what was happening in it to residents of the village, we were told that lives a madman who takes advantage of the man who lives there, charging people who want to visit the House and more surprising comments that I am not going to write... the villa belongs to a hotel company and is pending throw it of there is a full-fledged occupies... we cannot be more disappointed... will have been at the time something important, but it is today only a ruin in disrepair, occupied by a madman.

  • Must to see it. View its amazing. Place have small museum. Its open in day time.
  • Amazing place but really difficult to get to....dust track doesn't do it justice. Cicar will need new shocks for the car I had. All of our teeth were loose after that journey. ... Worth seeing though. ..
  • 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!!
  • Really amazing the history hidden between the walls of that house.
  • Leave, karg, subject statements. Still a beautiful, kilometre-long sandy beach. Worth is the way.
