About Anthony

My wife Jill and I first travelled to the Cape Verde Islands in 2007, we toured 3 of the most popular Islands, Sal, Boa Vista and Sai Vicente. We fell in love with Sai Vicente for its old world unspoilt charm and lack of commercialism. Mindelo is the capital of Sai Vicente and is the cultural centre of the islands. We purchased 2 Villa's off plan and have travelled there 4 times since watching them progress to completion in January 2010 where we had our first holiday in the Villas during the worst winter in the UK for years.

Anthony purchased this villa in 2007

Why Anthony chose São Vicente

My wife and I wanted a second investment home where we could eventually spend half of our retirement years during the English winters and spend family time with our children and grandson. The weather averages 25 degrees Celsius all year round. We are remote enough to have total peace and close enough to Mindelo to enjoy it's vibrant life style.

What makes this villa unique

Total peace with beautiful views of the sea to the front and mountains to the rear. The sea is 90 metres away where you can have a leisurely walk along the beach and enjoy the quite unspoiled coastline.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Relax to sound of the sea 24*7

We have been staying in a smaller villa in the same complex. Relaxing away from the city bustle. Mindelo 15 Mins by car, where we stock up with fresh fish, vegetables and fruit. The villa is well equipped for those who enjoy self catering. Having a car is a must when living here. We have enjoyed exploring the island, visiting the beaches and getting to know the Cape Verdian way of life. Daily walks along the seashore, or local mountains. The fantastic pool can be enjoyed both day and night. Architect designed villas are not just a pleasure to look at, but also comfortable to live in. We are happy to have chosen this location for our 7 week holiday. This couple enjoyed it so much they bought the villa next door and our now our neighbours.
