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).

Ground floor location was good and provided very easy access to pool and Elcibar. Local agent met us at airport and drove us there on arrival; also provided some drinks in the fridge which saved shopping the first night as we ate supper and brunch on the first day at Elcibar! We didn't cook other than breakfast but found everything we needed in the flat. Used the mossie nets a couple of nights until we bought some fly spray. Found that leaving windows open with fly screens in place provided a very pleasant through breeze most nights. Also made use of the DVD collection a couple of nights; thanks a very useful addition. Walk into town is about 15 minute each way but take a torch as it is mostly unmade; didn't have a bad meal anywhere and some were excellent. Big (red)supermarket is about 10 minutes walk each way. Had a great two week holiday. Thanks Geri!

Two pools to choose from, several places to eat and also the ability to walk straight out onto the beach.... What more could you want? The villa (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, front room, balcony) was clean, tidy and really well maintained. It had all the services you could wish for - air conditioning, washing machine, tv, fridge, internet etc. A cleaner also came in mid week to tidy and change sheets etc. We stayed for a week, while kite-surfing and found that getting around the island from the villa was effortless. Taxis into town were just 3Euros, although there is a shuttle bus too. Communication from the owners was faultless and really helpful. They shared with us their local knowledge - from how to organise the best deals for any trips to the best restaurants to frequent in the town. I would not hesitate to return. If you are a family, a couple, kite-surfers or just want somewhere to kick back and chill you'll be hard pushed to find anywhere better. Thanks Dr J. Jones
