About Lolo Fildes

I am a retired Flight Attendant, born in Sweden, but I have lived most of my life in England. I have through my job seen most of the world and I decided, that Santo Antao was the most wonderful place to spend the winters in. So I now spend my time in Sweden and London and the winters in Cape Verde.

Lolo Fildes purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lolo Fildes chose Ribeira Grande

Santo Antao is such a peaceful and beautiful place and the Cape Verdeans are wonderful people. My villa is a real home away from home and the best I have seen on the island.

What makes this villa unique

The views from the villa are spectacular. My villa has a private pool.

Amazing Views and a fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Lolo's place was perfect for our big group. The space was comfortable and well stocked. We were able to cook for ourselves each day and enjoyed the private pool each evening. I would definitely recommend if your ever in Santo Antão.

Una casa con vistas fantásticas

  • 5 of 5

La casa está apartada y al principio te preguntas si no estará lejos de todo. Sin embargo, todo ello se compensa con unas vistas fantasticas y la comodidad de la casa. Nos recomendaron un conductor y realmente valio la pena aceptarlo y no alquilar coche. Nos llevamos un buen recuerdo de Lombo Branco.

Tout le confort possible niche en haut d'une montagne

  • 5 of 5

belle villa bien aménagée avec goût et tout le confort nécessaire pour repos, tranquillité ou détente après randonnée. Encore quelques petits réglages à faire au niveau de la robinetterie ou appareil ménager mais la propriétaire s'en occupe activement !! Une piscine toute nouvelle bien agréable et appréciée puisque les plages ne sont pas trop présentes sur Santo Antao. Jardin fleuri tout autour de la maison et vue imprenable sur la mer ...!!! Véhicule conseillé car cette villa est situé entre Ribeira Grande et Synagoga dans un complexe de quelques maisons (toutes inoccupées le temps de notre séjour..) au pied d'un petit village et dont l'accès se fait par une route assez étroite et très escarpée. La 1ère fois on se demande où l'on va ...!! Par contre à cette période (juillet) cette partie de l'île est moins ensoleillée que la partie sud mais ceci est indépendant de la propriétaire ...!! Le temps de notre séjour nous avons eu également une coupure d'eau et une d'électricité mais là aussi la propriétaire n y est pour rien et cela a permis uns soirée aux chandelles !! Très bonne adresse à conseiller si on recherche la tranquillité et un peu d'isolement !!!

Car: not necessary

The villa is situated in a small development with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean to the front and a mountainview at the back. It is situated 1,5 km up the mountain road from Sinagoga and about 20 min ride from the capital Ribeira Grande. The island is a paradise for walkers and nature lovers.
