MESON DE MALLEVILLE
Situated in the colorful, colonial town of Valladolid, Meson de Malleville is a beautiful 16th century home. The four-room sanctuary is located directly across from the historical Convent of San Bernardino de Siena. As the former home of Coqui Coqui’s founders, Nicolas Malleville and Francesca Bonato, Mesón de Malleville lovingly opens its doors to guests in the spirit of warmth and family. Working to renovated and restore the enchanting building, the couple 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 welcomed friends and family from all over the world. It has been a well-lived in family home, always filled with 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 room is decorated in the distinct Coqui Coqui style, but each with its own unique 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 through out 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 home are part of the most recent renovation. High ceilings, polished concrete floors and walls, complete with natural lighting from the large windows, these suites are characteristically Coqui Coqui, inspired by the Coba residence. 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.
Mesón de Malleville also 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. Welcome to Meson de Malleville, the place where we invite you to truly become part of the Coqui Coqui family and history.
