We only stayed 2 nights at the Villa Mathesis but it was the highlight of our journey. The owners are very helpful and looked very good after us. The view is just breathtaking. The breakfast in the living room overlooking the beach while sunrise and the subset at the infinity pool makes this place magical ;-) thank you

Spectaular accommodation and a very warm welcome from our proud hosts, and indeed they have every reason to be proud. The villa is phenominal and we really felt like we had the place to ourselves even though there were others staying over the course of our 4 nights. Five star breakfasts presented by Marie Carmen who greeted us every morning...

A small place with only three rooms, each with a 180° view of the coastline. Fantastic position with easy access to some lovely sandy beaches. It has a hidden lift to the villa, just like 007, but instead of an evil villian you are welcomed by a big hearted host who makes you feel like an old friend.

Our stay at Villa Mathesis was incredible! First, Gotzon was incredibly communicative and answered all our questions before we arrived. He was actually away during our stay, but was still very easy to get in touch with, gave us great restaurant recommendations, and made reservations for us. Mari Carmen greeted us and made a great breakfast. She is absolutely lovely...

The first thing to say about Villa Mathesis is that it is a house with very serious wow factor. From the outside looking in it has a clean, cool, contemporary design, standing on the hillside with an air of James Bond . And from the inside looking out – the most amazing views, across the white sandy beach and clear...
