Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Cape Verde Islands your home away from home

The Cape Verde Islands are a string of wild, volcanic islands stretching off the coast of Senegal in West Africa. The amazingly long, white Cape Verde beaches, dramatic volcanic landscapes and mystical colonial towns have, until recently, been a fantastically well kept secret, but with the increase in Cape Verde holiday homes and cheap flights, the rich blend of scenery and culture has become irresistible. There are ten islands which make up the Cape Verde Islands, all of which have completely different landscapes and atmospheres to their neighbours. If you wish to enjoy year round sun, scuba diving and samba dancing, all in one place, renting a Cape Verde property is a perfect solution!

Things to do in the Cape Verde Islands

The beaches of Cape Verde are simply beautiful. You will never be far from a glorious, white sand beach from a Cape Verde property. The beaches never get crowded, and there are many miles to choose from regardless of which island you take a Cape Verde holiday home on. Whether you wish to laze in the sun or take a romantic stroll along the sand, there are many idyllic spots to find throughout the Cape Verde Islands. Turtles are plentiful along the beaches of the Cape Verde Islands, which are a joy to watch from a Cape Verde holiday home, especially on Boa Vista.

Water sports are absolutely magnificent in the sea around the Cape Verde Islands. The Island of Boa Vista is a particular favourite for windsurfing, whilst the island of Sal receives some of the best beach breaks for surfing anywhere in Africa, and possibly the world. Regardless of which islands you decide to stay on, villas in Cape Verde are ideal for scuba diving and sailing holidays too. Scuba diving is absolutely incredible here, with some of the best dive sites found on Boa Vista and Sao Vicente. Game fishing for blue marlin also thrives, with more of the fish caught in a single day than any other destination in the world. Whales, dolphins and turtles are seen in abundance along the coast too.

Walking and trekking holidays in the remarkable volcanic landscapes of the Cape Verde Islands are absolutely unforgettable. The barren landscapes are an absolute marvel to behold, and the views from the top of the volcanic craters of Fogo and Santa Antao are absolutely breathtaking. There are many unique species of bird in the Cape Verde Islands, making Cape Verde holiday homes perfect for bird lovers.

Places to visit in the Cape Verde Islands

The island of Sal is the most popular with visitors, as it was the first island to get an airport, and tourist facilities quickly grew around the stunning white beaches. The Island of Boa Vista boasts over 55km of stunning beaches, which remain empty all year round, making it the ideal destination for beach lovers who truly want to escape.

Cultural Cape Verde holidays are absolutely fantastic on the islands of Santiago, which enjoys the most African culture of all the islands, and Sao Vicente, which is the cultural home of the Cape Verde Islands, and the finest place to explore and enjoy the famous Cape Verdian music. Windsurfers will also be absolutely thrilled by the prospect of taking a Cape Verde property rental on Sao Vicente, as conditions are absolutely ideal for windsurfing throughout much of the year.

Weather in the Cape Verde Islands

Cold ocean currents keep the Cape Verde Islands wonderfully mild throughout the year, meaning that you can travel to Cape Verde on holiday all year round. The very moderate temperatures of the Cape Verde Islands means that summer conditions are much like those of southern Europe, with daily temperatures from May until November hovering around the 30?C mark. In the evenings, temperatures can dip to a little below 20?C, but not much further.

Travel to the Cape Verde Islands

By far the best way to reach a Cape Verde holiday home is by plane. Although there are eight separate airports on the Cape Verde Islands, only the Rabil International Airport (BVC) and the Amilcar Cabral International Airport (SID) receive direct flights from the UK. Astraeus provide flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to both airports, and ThomsonFly provide flights to Amilcar from Birmingham (BHX), London Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester (MAN).

The location was perfect no need for hire cars or taxis. We were really glad we chose to stay in the town of Santa Maria and not on one of the big developments near the airport. The apartment was of a high standard, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Santa Maria was quiet but charming. I believe it is busier in the winter months but this suited us perfectly as there were still plenty of lovely restaurants open to eat in and some great beach bars next to Porto Antigo complex. Our days were spent round the pool or on the beach right in front of the apartment. Our idea of bliss! We would love to return and would definitely choose to stay in the same apartment again.

This place does exactly what it says , great resort, lovely pools , beautiful beach. The appartment was perfect and clean, was great to have 2 bathrooms . Island is lovely we ate out in close by Santa Maria every night and could not fault any of the food. Have recommended to friends and family and hope to return one day.

                                                                                                      If you're anything like me then by now, you will have looked at dozens of properties in Cape Verde and still be surfing the web searching for that villa with 'something special', that 'litte piece of heaven' for your well-earned break. Well congratulations, because now you can stop your search - you've found it! My husband and I are well-versed villa bookers ... and this really is something special! Each morning as I stepped out of the second floor door of this villa onto the sun-baked breakfast patio, it felt like stepping into a picture postcard - a little piece of heaven. I just had to stop and stare. And each evening, as the sun set low over the sea, I had to close my eyes, rock gently in the hammock and let the sound of the surf break over me. Perfect peace! Of course, there is much that I could say about the villa itself that goes without saying - it's smart, comfortable, well-equipped, well maintained by the lovely, local cleaning ladies - everything you need for a home from home holiday. And close by are some near deserted beaches, a well-kept swimming pool (and children's pool), a restaurant on the shore front (the sea literally goes under the outdoor patio area) and a friendly bar with live musicians each night(many of them local Cape Verdians playing traditional music) and also an outdoor pool table for the children - plus a local shop with most of your basic provisions. But the location is the deal-breaker - right on the shore front and close enough to hear the sea as you fall to sleep at night and the waves as you wake up in the morning! In fact, we found ourselves hard pushed to find reasons to leave our relaxing place in the sun - until a reason found us in the form of a lovely, lively and clever local lady called Goldie . The owner of the villa Claire is a kind hearted lady who has rescued a number of dogs from Cape Verde in the past and I can understand why. Goldie was so smart and quickly became part of our daily routine. We couldn't help but to look out for her. She loved nothing more than a romp along the local beach, playing in the surf and chasing sticks across the sand! Or just snoozing in the sun amongst the shade of the rocks in the midday sun. A lovely, lovely lady who stole our hearts - and made our holiday even more perfect! But don't take my advice - go and see for yourself - believe me, you will not regret it.
