We stayed in the Villa Mathesis for six nights and we were really excited about this house.
The architecture is impressive and the Villa Mathesis counts to the ten “most spectacular houses” of the world. It is very modern, clean, a lot of windows & daylight, high quality of furniture and materials, but also with a warm atmosphere. You feel that every detail has been planned and chosen with love. It is not a cool house at all, it has a soul. The name of this soul is Marie-Carmen: She is a very warm person with a big heart. Every morning she prepares the breakfast for the guests and serves it either to the terrace outside near the infinity pool or inside with the same spectacular view of 180° on the sea which you can enjoy everywhere. The breakfast contains homemade fresh bread, self-made cakes and yoghurts, fresh fruits and of course Spanish Jamon.
The owner and hosts, Gotzon and José Ignacio, are two very nice and helpful people with a high social competence. From the first moment you feel very good and comfortable in their wonderful villa which they share with you like a family member. There are only 3 guest rooms and so you are treated very personally and with a lot of respect for your privacy. Gotzon & José Ignacio are born as hosts, it is their goal that you feel comfortable and they do everything to fulfill your needs and requirements. If you need recommendations for excellent restaurants or a day trip, they have a very good network and personalized addresses. Gotzon and José Ignacio are taking care of you in each situation and the hospitality could not be better.
Thanks to the hosts and their willingness to share this beautiful location (e.g. heated infinity pool) you can enjoy, relax and recover. After two days in the Villa we felt much reposed and had the feeling that we had already one week vacation. We cannot explain this.
We can highly recommend this Villa, that’s the place to be! We are frequent travelers and we are used to stay in 5 stars hotels, but this villa surpassed everything we saw before!
That was our first, but not our last time. We are planning our next trip to Zahara los Atunes to stay some days in the Villa Mathesis together with friends.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, dear Gotzon, José Ignacio and Marie-Carmen, for our wonderful stay in the Villa and that you shared this amazing location with us!!
Best regards from Switzerland,
Peter & Senta
