    Very interesting visits in the cellars made by one of the descendants of the owners of the House. Really cares to tell people the story of the villa and its secrets. Visit free, leaving a small tip of your choice.

    Mysterious Villa in the mountains. Not much there you can see but the history of this building, and the fact that it is not examined gives food for thought. I recommend to lovers of history. It is best to go there by car-the road is winding, mountainous and Sandy. For drivers with strong nerves. He rides there, all-terrain bus. The villas offer beautiful views of the ocean. Below a wide sandy beach with great waves. Recommend

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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!!
  • 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.
  • Must to see it. View its amazing. Place have small museum. Its open in day time.
