Fuerteventura has a secret, a secret not like any other.
This is Villa Winter, a beautiful villa located along an impressive mountain slide on one of the most remote parts of the island. Only one dust track will lead you there and it'll take up a couple of hours. I guess it was more appropriate to rent a 4x4, but hey, it's amazing what a Volkswagen Polo can pull off.
Volkswagen is German, right? Well, rumor has it this house was supposed to be Hitler's safe haven in case he lost World War II. It was part of a big escape plan to secure Hitler's life, a flee from Germany towards Brazil with an overhaul in Fuerteventura. The masterplan even involved cosmetic surgery to alter his facial characteristics. Adolf Hitler would have an anonymous life sipping juicy cocktails at the Copacabana. Would. We all know he committed suicide in the Führerbunker in Berlin.
The Villa was owned by the German family Winter, who established the touristic frenzy that's currently dominating the island. The Villa was left abandoned and was squatted by local surfers. As of 2011 a woman is living inside the Villa.
This wideangle shot is to give you an idea of the remote location of this villa. Miles of nothingness, bathing in the harsh sun.
