“This has got to be THE place to stay on the island. If you're looking for a knowledgeable host, real hiking, and fabulous food to come back to at the end of the day, this is it. No internet so its perfect for putting those phones down and appreciating the magnificent views just a short walk away; if you're lucky, Dora the dog will accompany you. Alain has created his own treks with instructions on laminated paper so you can choose your own length and difficulty, and head off. Accommodation was clean, with a lovely view, collectives frequently going by if you need a lift into town, and washing facilities, board games, and even a mountain bike available to rent out. We only wish we had booked more nights.”
This family run guesthouse, located 600 meters above sea level is the prefect place for the trekkings in the Paul Valley.
“The accommodation of Sandro ist perfect for all hiking lovers. From here you get easy to all starting points - sometimes by foot, sometimes by aluguer. The rooms are simple, but to be honest, in this area you don’t need more. The rooms are clean, the breakfast pretty good for the first hiking energy in the morning and we loved the dishes which were offered for dinner - please go for the catchupa - yammi! Sandro and Adilson are always there and can give you tips for hiking routes. All the staff were super friendly and we felt very familiar in this accommodation. You live amid mountains, farmers, banana-, sugarcane- and papaya-plants. Paul Valley is really a fantastic place!”
Sissi and her husband Bernard run this little and very nice B&B from their house in the beautiful Ponta do Sol. The B&B offers a very nice breakfast in the morning. Ponta do Sol is a charming village, from where you can do a few very nice hikes, including the one to neighboring Fontainhas, named one of the three villages in the world with the most beautiful view! (also a room for 3 available!)
“The room was spotlessly clean and even cleaned every morning! The bed was made and even freshly made after 2 nights ... And there was a fresh towel! Breakfast was great! Every morning there was a new surprise: omelet, boiled egg or small cakes ... And every day there was fresh guava, mango or papaya juice and homemade yogurt! Bernardo and Sissi are wonderful hosts! I want to come back next year ...”
