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).

Spacious and well equipped apartment

5 of 5
This resort is a short hop from the airport (but not too close). The gardens, pool and apartments are well tended. The apartment is roomy and well equipped especially with comfy patio furniture for lazing around or dining. At this time of the year the closest supermarket was in Santa Maria, a 40 or so minute walk, or a €4 Euro taxi ride. The resort is adjacent to the beach and a 20 min walk will get you to Bo Beach Bar or Ponta Preta Beach Bar both serving good food and drink at reasonable prices. We had a marvellous taxi driver called Silvino - reliable & helpful. Reception have his number. The weather was hot and sunny but most days we had some cloud and a breeze, just perfect. Ask reception for recommendations for restaurants in town. They will also make reservations for you. We had a great holiday and will return.

wonderful holidays

5 of 5
Die Villa ist toll gelegen, Blick aufs Meer wo die Wale schwimmen! Mehrere direkt von der Terrasse aus gesehen. Der Garten ist sehr schön angelegt. Es gab Probleme mit der Anreise da die Flugzeit geändert wurde und wir umdisponieren mussten. Philip hat alles organisiert, dass wir die Fähre nehmen konnten und uns auf der Anreise "begleitet". Er war per whatsapp die ganze Anreise über erreichbar und hat uns super unterstützt. Ohne ihn wäre das so alles nicht möglich gewesen. Auch Roger und Caro sind sehr hilfsbereit und helfen wo sie können. Hier ist der Gast noch was wert.
