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).

Perfecr Getaway

5 of 5
This apartment has a perfect location, just to the quiet side of Town, but within easy walking distance of the centre. The facilities in the apartment were great and plenty of space, it has a great view out to the Ocean, overlooking the Pool. The two beach clubs in front of the apartments do great lunches and sundowners, and they both shut down at 2230, so no late night noise, The whole vibe is peaceful and quite, and its a place to go and relax. Just up the road 2min walk, there's Cape Fruit a great place to have breakfast and a fresh juice. All in all I would highly recommend to stay in this apartment, it has everything you need, and is situated in the best part of town.

Great time had.

4 of 5
We really loved our first visit to cape verde and will definitely be back. The apartment was well situated being a few steps from the beach, lovely view looking to the right from the balcony not as good looking straight ahead.the apartment was spacious and comfortable. The only downside for us was the lack of clean towels and bed linen which was definitely needed after spending every day on the beach. I did text a number I had asking for towels and eventually someone came round the day before we left, she proceeded to open a locked cupboard to give us 2 clean towels, after 6 days using the same towel twice a day I would have appreciated having access to clean towels. I also need to mention I was disappointed to find there was no wardrobe in the apartment which I found difficult as I like to hang clothes up and not fold into drawers, overall had a great holiday and will be back to cape verde.
