OVERVIEW \ single-residence Secluded retreat STARTING AT $270
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.
Every of the 4 rooms are decorated in the distinct Coqui Coqui style yet each with its own personality, showcasing the couple’s furniture from family heirlooms to those gathered from their travels. The green room is an ode to femininity and elegance, with antique Italian mahogany furniture that has been in Bonato’s family for many generations. A crystal chandelier hangs delicately illuminating the room in a soft, blush light. The bathroom is large and open in softer green and beige tones, reminiscent of a Victorian powder room.
The blue room shows a more nautical theme that encompasses a masculine energy and an explorer’s spirit. The navy blue walls and dark color scheme throughout gives this room character. Antique maps and globes, vintage travel trunks, and sturdy furniture with straight lines, make up part of the decor. The bathroom is elegant yet distinctly virile.
The two suites at opposite ends of the house are part of the most recent renovation. The high ceilings, polished concrete floors and walls, and large windows are characteristically Coqui Coqui inspired by the Coba and former Tulum residences. They present a minimal, more contemporary style characteristic of Malleville’s and Bonato’s personal taste. Each has its own private terrace with lounging chairs and tables in order for guests to enjoy the warm, balmy weather that blesses Valladolid all-year round. The master suite also has it’s own plunge pool so that guests may relax and cool down in total privacy.
Mesón de Malleville features the home and travel line Oficios Artesanos in a stunning boutique, an outdoor café serving freshly brewed coffee and tea with direct view to the historical convent and an indoor patio where guests can relax as if they were in the privacy of their own homes. Of course Mesón de Malleville would not be complete without the signature Coqui Coqui Perfumes line of handmade oils, creams and fragrances that are included in your stay.
On-site kitchen serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, teas and coffees.
