Penthouse on the top of a house - one of the nicest apartments of Maio. Elegant, spacious, modern, with a large terrace and a fantastic ocean view.
High rooms (which is genial for the climate!).
Big picture-windows, stupendous panoramic view.
Good residential area: the Penthouse is located at the border of the nice little town Vila do Maio, few steps to 2 little supermercados. Just a few minutes walk to the beautiful and quiet white sandy beaches.

The space
120 m² living space + 50 m² terrace

living space:
2 bedrooms (with built-in wardrobes), one with a large double bed 2 x 2 m.
In the second bedroom is another double bed (1,40 x 1,90 m) - so the apartment offers enough space for 3 or even 4 people.
2 bathrooms (both with shower cubicles, one bathroom additional with bidet).

Mosquito nets and 2 fans on demand (usually not necessary!)

Ample living room with kitchen (with built-in cupboards, gas oven, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, coffee machine …).
Television.

1 lumber-room with a big rack.

Magnificent view over the rooftops of Vila do Maio, on about 250 degrees (!) unspoilt blue sea horizon. Sometimes you see whales passing by - and dolphins!

On the large terrace (50 m²) there is a white wooden canopy, a white seat bench, a tiled steel table, 2 sun loungers and an outside shower.

In this beautiful penthouse you do not reside in a tourist ghetto, you live in the vicinity of Cape Verdean village life. But always "above it all", with a spectacular view - like a belvedere!

Other things to note
In the immediate vicinity (about 200 meters from the penthouse) there is a small sheltered bay with bright sand. The next larger sandy beach can be reached in about 8 minutes.
You do not need a car (since beaches and shopping are close), but you can always rent one, for excursions or an island tour.

The price of your stay includes electricity, gas and water, once the week cleaning of the apartment and changing of the bed linen and towels (covered by the one-time cleaning fee).
Laundry for personal items is 1.000 CVE (or 9 Euro) for one wash.

Cape Verde Tourist Tax is payable by all adults over the age of 16: € 2 per person per night to a maximum of 10 nights. This will be collected by us or by a friend on arrival.

! Also long-term rental possible (on request, at a reduced price) !

The journey: To get to Maio, you have to fly in any case first to Praia / Santiago. Either via Lisbon, or with Royal Air Maroc via Casablanca. Three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) from Praia an airplane (Binter Cabo Verde) flies to Maio within 10 minutes (in the summer season only two times). There is also a ferry from Praia to Maio (normally on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays), the crossing takes 3:40 h.

Ich bin Malerin und Sängerin, komme aus Deutschland. Seit vielen Jahren leben mein Mann (ehem. Redakteur beim ARD-Fernsehen) und ich mehrere Monate im Jahr auf den Kapverden. Fasziniert von der natürlichen Anmut der Einheimischen, von den Farben Afrikas, von der überwältigenden Macht des Lichtes finde ich hier meine schönsten Bildmotive. Was wir an der Insel Maio außerdem lieben: sie ist vom Massentourismus noch unberührt. Die Menschen sind freundlich. Die langen, oft menschenleeren weißen Sandstrände und einsamen Buchten sind das Nonplusultra. Das Meer ist sauber, glasklar und meistens um die 25° warm, das Klima auch im Winter sommerlich. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am a German painter and singer. For many years my husband (former editor at the German ARD television) and I live several months a year on the Cape Verde Islands. Fascinated by the natural grace of the locals, by the colors of Africa, by the overwhelming power of light, I find here my most beautiful motifs.

Mon mari (ancien rédacteur à la télévision allemande ARD) et moi vivons plusieurs mois par an dans les îles du Cap-Vert. Fascinée par la grâce naturelle des locaux, par les couleurs de l'Afrique, par la puissance étourdissante de la lumière, j'y trouve mes plus beaux motifs. Nous aimons cette île car elle est encore épargnée par le tourisme de masse. Les gens sont aimables et acceuillants. Les longues plages de sable blanc - souvent désertes - et les criques isolées sont merveilleuses. La mer est propre, claire et généralement de 25 degrés, et même en hiver, le climat est estival.
