Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Surrounded by statuesque, tropical fruit trees and occupying a 450m2 plot, Villa Cabra is our family holiday home. Therefore it is more thoughtfully equipped than the majority of rental properties. With everything you need for the beach – towels, mats, snorkel and mask, kites and cool bag – plus a variety of games, puzzles, books and DVDs for evenings in.
A table and six chairs are available for al fresco dining on the patio in addition to the indoor furniture. Doors open from the master bedroom onto the roof terrace. This is an ideal spot to watch stars shoot across the vast African dark-sky by night. A hammock and a lounger provide comfort whilst you enjoy 'the show'.
Guests have use of the communal pool.
Villa Cabra is conveniently situated. All amenities are accessible within a few minutes. The main town of Maio, Vila do Maio, is a short stroll. Here you will find a variety of restaurants, bars, banks and a clinic.
A 10 minute walk across the Salinas (salt flats) brings you to one of the many stunning beaches whilst the small airport is a 5 minute drive away.
One of the smallest Cape Verdean islands, Maio is an undiscovered delight. Unlike its larger relatives, Maio has not succumbed to commercialism (yet!) It enjoys a charming, unspoilt, peaceful way of life where the locals are cheerful, friendly and honest.
The ocean dominates their lives and the bounty harvested is a fish lover's paradise. The myriad colours of the water, combined with the vibrant hues of the tropical flowers and vegetation, make Maio a haven for artists and photographers.
If you would like to taste a chilled, unhurried way of life where you can turn your back on the gadgetry and rather dubious priorities that dominate our 21st century lives, then I wholly commend Maio to you.
