Sal was an uninhabited of the main islands of Cape Verde until around 1800. Two lighthouses were constructed at the island's extreme points in the 1880s. Santa Maria was founded in the south in 1830 and became the island capital, the salt industry thrived, most of the salt was exported to Brazil until its nationalization in 1887, Portuguese and French salt investors resumed salt production until 1984. An airport first constructed by Italy started construction in 1939 to receive flights to Europe and South America, construction was halted in around 1940 during World War II and continuation ceased, the Portuguese bought the airport from the Italians and finished the rest in 1949, planes from Italy would offer a stopover flight for refuelling.
Vila Verde is a brand new development to the North West of Santa Maria opposite the world renown beach of Ponta Preta. The development offers a supermarket, restaurant pool side café and soon to be opened a bakery & Pizzeria. There are pools in every community which are in the main privately owned. The botanical gardens are well maintained as is the pool.The apartment is on the first floor overlooking the gardens and pool.
