About the property

A two bedroom private villa with mountain and sea views in a quiet location

Located in a small development of detached villas, with panoramic sea views of the Atlantic Ocean, set in a stunning location with mountain back drop on the beautiful island of Santo Antao.

Accessed via a rough steep mountain road and located on a popular hiking trail, this setting is ideal for those interested in hiking, bird watching or who want to enjoy some time in a tranquil location.

The villa is furnished to a good standard.

A quiet, but not isolated location from which to relax and enjoy the views from the large open plan lounge / dining area or step outside onto the balcony. Or better still, why not enjoy a cool drink on the roof terrace?

Aluguers regularly run past the village at the beginning and end of the working day as workers are transported to/from Lombo Branco. Alternatively, there are plenty of local private taxis that can be hired.

Sitting on one of the largest 2-bed villa plots, this villa has private gardens with lush vegetation including banana and papaya trees so please help yourself to the fresh fruit when it is in season.

Our guests have free access to a shared pool in the village. Alternatively, we can provide access to a private pool subject to availability and a local charge of 10 EUR per day. Please let us know at the time of booking if this is of interest.

Our local Rental Management Agents can arrange taxis to/from the port, trips to local restaurants, ferry tickets, as well as half day / full-day scenic and hiking tours.

It is about a 25 minute walk down to the sea front (Sinagoga) and the main coastal road. And about 45 minute walk back up to the village. There are regular aluguers (shared taxis) that go up and down the mountain road and will charge about 1 euro per person to Ribeira Grande. Note that these run regularly at the beginning and end of the working day. And there are plenty of private taxis for hire. There are a couple of local shops only a 5-10 mins walk away that stocks all the essential items. But we recommend that you do a full shop in Ribeira Grande before arriving at the villa. Lombo Branco Village has an on-site gardener and security and is available for any issues within the village or villa. Local car hire and private taxis are available from Port Novo. Due to the mountainside location and vegetation around the villas, there can be the occasional ant or millipede. And we recommend that you purchase some insecticide for use during your stay.

Santo Antão is the westernmost and largest of the Cape Verdean islands.

It is a beautiful and lush green island with rugged peaks and deep valleys.

Many people are attracted to the islands for the hiking and bird watching, particularly the Ribeiras with the beautiful scenery.

You can appreciate the stunning views with spectacular drives along the coastal roads which provide access to the ravines and gorges containing lush vegetation.

Lombo Branco Village is located about 1.5km up a steep mountain road from Sinagoga and is sign-posted from the main coastal road.

The nearest towns are Ribeira Grande and Paul which provide local services, banks, fuel, supermarkets, restaurants and medical facilities.

There are a couple of small local supermarkets only 5-10 mins walk away from the village that supply all the basics.

The tallest mountain is Topo de Coroa, reaching a height of 1,979 m which can afford spectacular views above the clouds.

The island’s main town is Ponta do Sol on the north coast and the ferry port is Porto Novo on the south coast.
