You are welcome to this very special apartment for me. Here is the place where we met with my grandmother to share a privileged moment alone, with the mountains for only witnesses. About 20 years later, I am creating this space with nostalgia to convey to you the love and attachment I have for my country. With the help of local artisans, I offer you a comfortable accommodation between Cape Verdean and European cultures.
“It was our luck to meet Sonia! She’s a very kind and helpful person, who is very open minded and has a certain sense for interior design! The flat is situated perfectly, near by are small super markets, the market hall and mountains in which it is lovely to hike! We felt from the first moment like home in her Appartement, especially the roof top terrace and the other small balcony are a stay worth, the sunset is beautiful to watch! Assomada itself is a town in which are not so many touristic places, which makes it even more interesting and worth visiting! We definitely keep in touch with Sonia!”
In the center of the island of Santiago, the house is located in Achada Lêm 10 minutes from Assomada, on the main road linking Praia to Tarrafal. Ideal place to discover the island: Ribeira do Serrado (2 minutes), Serra Malagueta (10 minutes), Boa Entrada (10 minutes), Aguas Belas (20 minutes), Tarrafal (30 minutes) ... and ideal for trekking. The property features a restaurant. Formula of half-board for the evening at 9 euros per person (dish / dessert).
“This was our favourite place that we stayed during our trip to Cape Verde. The house and the room was bright, spacious and very comfortable, with a lovely terrace and garden. There is also a shop that sells local handmade products and art. Magali and her team are such lovely people - they were always so kind and helpful, the food they cooked was delicious and very good value, and they helped us to arrange a great day trip with a local guide in Ribeiro de Barca. I would highly recommend staying here.”
Come and rest a little in the middle of the Parc Naturel Serra Malagueta. We built a completely new accomodation especially for hikers. It's a place designed just to rest, chill and enjoy the scenery. Get in touch with the locals, cultivating their soil following the ancient traditions. The hut though is fully equipped with kitchen and bathroom.
“At Iolanda and Johannes, you will be warmly welcomed. Everyone is very attentive. We spent time with Olivier and David who were able to show us all that their village has to offer. The landscape surrounding the house is magnificent and you can hike in the middle of nature. David will volunteer to guide you if necessary. For the cuisine, Marcolina will prepare very good dishes for breakfast and dinner, full of generosity with the fresh products harvested in the village. She even adapted the menus for us who are vegetarians. Homemade hot bread will be remembered. There is a bit of a walk between the restaurant and the house but there is always someone to bring you after dark. The room is very comfortable, it should just be noted that the water flow is quite low and that there is no hot water. It didn't hinder our stay at all. Thank you all for this wonderful moment of our trip to Cape Verde!”
