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.

"This is an amazing apartment if you are looking for a quiet place with a stunning view in Santo Antao. High up in the mountains you can find peace after a day of hiking. We rented a car at Pegaso in Porto Novo. In our opinion it is absolutely necessary to have your own car to reach the apartment as we saw only few taxis going up hill. With a car its 10-15 min on a petty steep and narrow street. Hetty gave us some great advice about the island and we also did two nice treks with her. We can totally recommend the tour of the three valleys with her, not so much the tour down to Paul from the cova crater. Although the apartment is really lovely and modern there is a strong smell of mold in the furniture. All in all we can totally recommend this place if you have your own car. We even extended our stay for two more days! :-)"

"We stayed at the apartment with four adults and one 2-year old kid for a week. The apartment was very convenient because of the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The view was astonishing, the rental car (rented in Porto Novo) was really convenient because of the isolated place. Besides it’s a nice way to discover the island."

"Villa with a gorgeous view over the ocean. Peaceful, great place to relax and high spec for Cape Verde. Be aware you need a car or personal taxi each time you want to leave the villa to get to hikes/town"

"Where should I begin. There is so much positive things to say of this place. The hosts were kind to change our arriving date to earlier time in short notice, that we are very thankful for. When we arrived we got a warm welcome from "fruta" with his family. Even though we didn't have a common language we understood each other well and they were helpful showing us where the local shop was. There was also an english speaking lady, who informed us about things we need to know. The location is in the mountains so it takes some time to reach by foot, but if someone drew by they were willing to pick up. Taxi also worked well. The view from the villa was definitely worth the way. It was breathtaking. Everything inside also looked like they do in the pictures. Well equipped kitchen, fresh and clean appartment. A lot of space. Totally recommend this place if you want an unique and luxurious place to stay at."
