The bedrooms doors are opened to a corridor, while the windows are opened to the outdoors.

The corridor is closed at both ends by security glass doors: of course, the glass doors are to be locked from the inside of the corridor.

The doors are pivoting and not sliding doors: privacy is defended and personal integrity is guaranteed.

In fact, it is even possible to sleep with the bedrooms doors wide opened in all security, just like at home.

About Serge Ouddane

Professeur at the Universidad del Istmo, in Guatemala, I am a family fan.

Ana, my wife, and I have 4 children and four grandsons.

We really enjoy this enchanting place that has been completely renewed in the 2008-2010 period.

Now, the children are grown up and we do not use the house as often as we should like to.

We feel lucky to own such an lovely place and are willing to allow families with children to discover a simple and natural life.

Our preferred guests will be parenting adults who want to experience with their children the ravishment of days rythmed by the sound of waves.

We prefer guests with a strong capacity to admire the creation, who love life passionately, and share these feelings with their children.

Yes: we prefer parents who teach life to their children and we lease the best classroom for these lessons: our very beautiful family house on the beach.

Serge Ouddane purchased this villa in 2000

Why Serge Ouddane chose El Salvador

First of all, because it is an elegant place: therefore, it is not crowded, people care about it, and it is safe.

Then, because it is located half an hour away from the international airport: after a long journey, you get home easily and quickly. When in Costa del sol Los Angeles is four hours away, and Miami three hours, for example.

Finally, because there are many things to do around: fishing, birdwatching, shellpicking, fine cooking and , of course farniente.

What makes this villa unique

Time for me, Time for the family, Time for friends.

Time for a cup of wine, time for a real fire on the beach, time for freedom.

Space for the eyes, space for the feet, space for new ideas.

The pleasure to walk barefoot on the grass, to feel the breeze on the skin, to breathe an unpolluted air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2011/10/9 wilber quintanilla

Hi Serge,



I have been tremendously busy since I came back from El Salvador.



I am happy to tell you that I enjoyed staying at your place at Costa Del Sol very much. I enjoyed the fact that it is so closed to the beach and the serenity it has because of its proximity to the ocean. I was able to relax and really unplug from my busy life in the US. And Orlando and his wife were tremendously helpful and very nice. Overall, my experience at your house was great.



There are some things that I would improve to make the stay more complete and I would like to share them with you if you would like. Please let me know as I believe my suggestions may make staying at your place even better (my stay was wonderful and very enjoyable)



Nonetheless, I would definitely stay at your place again and I would strongly recommend it to my friends and family.



In fact, I have a friend named Jose who will be contacting you about renting your house as he will be coming to El Salvador in the next month.



Please keep me in mind and I will certainly keep you in mind for future plans.



Kind Regards,



Wilber

Excellent location, incredible paradisiacal feeling!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Potopoto for three unforgettable weeks, we came at the end of June when the weather can be rainy or cloudy, instead we got super clear blue skies during the day and fresh rainy nights.
The renting transaction was very pleasant communication with the owner was fast and clear throughout.
In the house you can immediately notice that the owners have paid attention to detail on the services and utilities it offers. The pool was well maintained and recently cleaned. The grass, palms and gardens were all very good taken care of.
What is important to notice is that the rooms were cleaned every morning, and changed sheets every 3 days, each room has its own bathroom which makes a huge difference to other houses in the Costa del Sol.
The setup of the house has a bit of a camping ground (ranch) feeling, where you feel the beach and the palms the whole day. The kitchen and eating place sits next to the pool, and the beach literally 50mts. from the pool, this for us was the greatest plus of the house.
We will definitely come back, I hugely recommend PotoPoto!

Relaxing times

  • 5 of 5
Short drive from the airport and Fairly easy to find, with a convienant little grocery store and pupuseria leading the way. Enjoyed everything about the property. Loved the kitchen by the beach and all the bedrooms. Nothing fancy but exactly what is needed for a relaxing and quiet vacation. Nothing in the area to really see and restaurants are very limited but we were looking for neither and thus did not affect our stay much. Food and whatever needed can be bought to you by the wonderful caretakers on sight if so desired, at your own expense, of course. TV was not operational and the AC units were not the greatest but if bedroom doors are kept closed, they are sufficient. Would recommend this location for those families that like to create their own fun, without all the modern day technologies.

A wonderful stay.

  • 4 of 5
Nice, clean,quiet place, The care takers were very nice and helpful. Orlando was always there for what ever we needed, he cut down coconuts from the trees on the property! Elena cooked for us.
We could heard the waves all night it was great! We had a bonfire on the beach, we enjoyed watching the stars, sunset and sunrise. A/C in every room, the A/C units are kind of noisy, the property is a bout 72 kilometers from San Salvador about 1 hr drive, 6 kilometer from La Puntilla.
We would stay there again. We stayed there in the middle of November 2012.

Car: necessary

Like in ancient times, bakers with bikes, grocers with pick-up vehicles horn at your door to offer you fresh bread and vegetables every day.

For fresh sea food, your car, a bus or your biicycle and reach Doña Patty's place who retails , the giant shrimps, lobsters, crabs,and fish they catch in the mangrove or in deep sea.

6 miles away from home, a small super market provides you some delicatessen and other usual goods

The catholic church stands at a short distance and mass is celebrated every day. Other christian churches can be found around.

Fine dining is not always possible in the restaurants around. It is much easier to cook yourself or ask Elena to cook for you for a small fee.

Ask Orlando to arrange for you a tour in a craftman's boat tothe Estero de Jaltepeque and the savage Bocana del Lempa.Bird watching is, in some seasons, absolutely unique.

Orlando may also help you to hire a secure tour to deep sea for a turtle, dolphin, manta ray watching or for fishing: dorado, marlin

Other Activities: The beach is the best playground when in Costa del Sol: there you can walk 5 miles on each side of the house: east, you can walk or run, or bike up to the Bocana of the Estero de Jaltepeque. West, you do the same up to ... the airport!

Even if some of our guests declare that Costa del Sol is the most swimmer-friendly place in the region,the waves must be enjoyed with moderation and prudence. Always ask for a board before you play with waves.

If you happened to get bored of the beach, Orlando can drive you for a small fee to the mayan ruins, volcanoes and lakes, or to the rocky beaches where surfers from all over the world compete all year long for the best waves in La Libertad, El Zonte, El Tunco. Those trips generally require a two hours drive and can be done in one day.

If you feel nostalgy for shopping, Orlando can also drive you to the malls area in San Salvador, or at the mercado de artesania if you are fond of typical objects like hammocks,etc.
