Located in the picturesque region of North Baia on Sao Vicente ilsand, the ocean view house is in a serene location in a small private development with mountain views to the rear and ocean views to the front but is only 15 minutes away from the city of Mindelo which accommodates many bars, restaurants , shops and facilities. A spacious hideaway, this makes an ideal place to holiday when looking to escape the grey skies and needing somewhere comfortable to relax after a hard days sunbathing on the beach, a hike up Mount Verde, a spot of kitesurfing or cycling or a night on the town in Mindelo. The property has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with the living room opening onto a balcony. Front facing rooms have lovely sea views including the master bedroom where there is also direct access to a balcony. Additionally there is a roof terrace which provides another area to appreciate the landscape and sea views or perhaps spot a whale.

An early morning swim in the lagoon at Baia Das Gatas is recommended where you will usually have a swim on your own in water as warm as a bath in the peaceful surroundings of the mountains dotted with the occasional colourful village dwelling. Other beaches include Praia Grande and Salamansa where there is a Kitesurf school and Sao Pedro beach where horse riding lessons may be taken.

The townhouse is close to an attractive small secluded beach but to access it across a very quiet road you have to walk down some "dunes" and without knowledge there is no proper path so if you have strong disabilities it is not recommended but our neighbours of 75 do walk it every day. Do note the sea is not directly under the house .The property is also ideally placed for some beautiful walks or picnics along the coastline. A car is recommended as shops and restaurants are all located in Mindelo – approximately 15 minutes away. Alternatively taxis to Mindelo cost about 8-9 Euros . For car hire call (phone number hidden) or (email hidden)should time permit, we recommend some island hopping and in particular a visit to the neighbouring island of Santao Antao . Ferries run daily from Mindelo and take under one hour (approximately 8 Euro). Once there, make sure you take a route through the island on the old road and not the new one or you will miss some of the island.

Other island hopping from Sao Vicente is recommended so that the diversity of the islands and landscapes can be appreciated. Binter Air also fly to the other islands .

Sao Vicente can be reached by a direct flight from various European cities (including Paris, Lisbon and Amsterdam. London is semi direct via a short stopover if you pick the correct flight with TAP). Cape Verde airlines , TUIFLY and TAP Portugal are the airlines that fly direct to Sao Vicente island. Alternatively, a couple of charter companies (Thomson, Thomas Cook) offer flights from UK direct to Sal island, Cape Verde from where you can get an internal flight (40 minutes – cost around Euro80-100).
