About the property

Lombo Branco Village

Located in a small development of detached villas, with panoramic sea views of the Atlantic Ocean, set in a stunning location with mountain back drop on the beautiful island of Santo Antao.

Accessed via a steep mountain road and located on a popular hiking trail. Ideal for those interested in hiking, bird watching or who want to enjoy a tranquil setting.

The villa is furnished to a good standard.

A quiet but not isolated location from which to relax and enjoy the views from the large open plan lounge / dining area or step outside onto the balcony. Or better still, why not enjoy a cool drink on the roof terrace?

Aluguers regularly run past the village at the beginning and end of the working day as workers are transported to/from Lombo Branco. Alternatively, there are plenty of local private taxis that can be hired.

Sitting on one of the largest plots, this villa has private gardens with lush vegetation including banana and papaiya trees so please help yourself to the fresh fruit when it is in season.

And our local Rental Management Agents can arrange taxis to/from the port, trips to local restaurants, as well as half day / full-day scenic and hiking tours.

It is about a 25 minute walk down to the sea front (Sinagoga) and the main coastal road. And about 45 minute walk back up to the village. There are regular aluguers (shared taxis) that go up and down the mountain road and will charge about 1 euro per person to Ribeira Grande. Note that these run regularly at the beginning and end of the working day. And there are plenty of private taxis for hire. There is a local shop only 5-10 mins walk away that stocks all the essential items, although stock levels can vary. Lombo Branco Village has an on-site gardener and security. Local car hire and private taxis are available from Port Novo. Due to the mountainside location and vegetation around the villas, there can be the occasional ant or millipede.

Amazing, luxurious villa with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, luxurious villa with fantastic views. It was equipped to the highest standard. The roof terrace was a real sun trap but you could always find some shade too. The pool was a great bonus. It was extremely relaxing and quiet. The little shop, just a few minutes walk up the road, had all the basics. It’s a brilliant base for walking. Fresh fruit grows on the site and we helped ourselves to fresh papaya most days. Shame the bananas were not quite ready!

Santo Antão is the westernmost and largest of the Cape Verdean islands.

It is a beautiful and lush green island with rugged peaks and deep valleys .

Many people are attracted to the islands for the hiking and bird watching, particularly the Ribeiras with the beautiful scenery.

You can appreciate the stunning views with spectacular drives along the coastal roads which provide access to the ravines and gorges containing lush vegetation.

Lombo Branco Village is located about 1.5km up a fairly steep mountain road from Sinagoga and is sign-posted from the main coastal road.

The nearest towns are Ribeira Grande and Paul which provide local services, banks, fuel, supermarkets, restaurants and medical facilities.

There is a small local supermarket 5-10 mins walk away from the village that supplies all the basics.

The tallest mountain is Topo de Coroa, reaching a height of 1,979 m which can afford spectacular views above the clouds.

The island’s main town is Ponta do Sol on the north coast and the ferry port is Porto Novo on the south coast.
