This beautiful 16th century house is located right across from the historical Convent of San Bernardino de Siena in the colorful colonial town of Valladolid. The former home of Coqui Coqui founders, Nicolas Malleville and Francesca Bonato, Mesón de Malleville lovingly opens its doors to guests in the spirit of warmth and family. The couple renovated this beautiful colonial house yet maintained the original moorish tile floors, walls and high ceilings with wooden beams from the 1600’s. Here, Malleville and Bonato raised their two children and received friends and family from all over the world. It has been a well-lived house always full of joy and love. With this mind, the couple decided it was time for their home to be open to the public and thus Mesón de Malleville was born.
