|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This is a studio apartment and sleeps 2 adults.
The studio has 2 single beds ( not sofa bed ) fitted Kitchen and air con.
The sea view from the balcony/patio is breathtaking, and the pier where the fishermen land their catch is just an amazing sight to watch.
The beach stretches for 7 km and is great catching the suns rays, for walking along, swimming, surfing and windsurfing.
Fishing and scuba diving can also be easily arranged as the watersports facilities is within 3 mins level walking distance, quad bike hire, and now pony rides on the beach are available.
The complex has a freshwater swimming pool and is surrounded by lovely gardens.
The restaurants, shops, bars, banks, bakery, supermarkets etc etc are also just a 3 min stroll away.
This is the ideal position for either a very energetic holiday or a holiday just soaking up the sun with a book on the peaceful beach or by the pool.
To say there is something for everyone at this location is the understatement of the year.
Porto Antigo apartments are the nicest apartment complex's in Santa Maria. 1, 2 and 3 complex is sat upon the beach, so no walking across roads etc. It is very central and 3 mins level walk to all shops, supermarkets, banks, restaurants in one direction and 3 mins level walk to all the water sport facilities and tuition centre in the other direction. Each property has air con, and a shower, patio furniture and comes with all towels and sheets etc. The Kitchens are equipped, (but restaurants are so varied and good you may not use kitchen). Bakery is one street away, and so is fresh fruit and vegetables. Each of the apartments I own have wonderful sea views from Patio or Balcony and its a dream place to sit of an evening with a glass of wine and watch the last of the days sun sparkling on the sea.Your days can be filled with water activities of every imaginable kind, or just relax by the pool or lay on beach, catch the sun rays or read a book
These properties were purchased because of the unique location.
It is rare indeed to find a location sat right on the large and unspoilt bay/beach, with the town and all its benefits such as restaurants, banks, bars, and music all within 3/5 mins level walking distance.
This Island was new to me and I had heard good report so decided to try.
What a blessing, The apartment was on the beach, the area was full of life on the street side, full of bright shops, restaurants, banks, and beautiful local people.
If I had scrolled through these holiday letting sites for days I would not have found anything better for me.
The restaurants are a sight for sore eyes, and every imaginable thing you want to eat can be found in a very small area close to the apartment.
The owner was so very helpful and full of tips and ideas, you can be as relaxed as you wish, or as energetic as you feel, with water sports, quad biking, pony rides, Island tours, you name it and it is available right on your doorstep.
Cannot wait to return
Not having travelled much I was a little concerned about going to Cape Verde.
I was so wrong, from the moment I e mailed the owner to yesterday when we left I have never enjoyed an experience of travel and a place so much as this trip.
The owner could not have been more helpful and obliging, she answered every question ( and there was many) with such charm and truth. Her apartments are sited right on the most beautiful beach you could imagine. They are well equipped and cleaned every day. She gave us so much information and help I will certainly return here and with her. Other family members stayed on same site, but different owners, and their experience was not the same as ours ( so do check your owners) Cannot find fault with any aspect of this holiday at all and so wished we had booked for 2 weeks. I recommend this site and most especially this owner to provide you with a wonder experience and a fantastic holiday.
My family and I stayed in the 1 bedroomed apartment in Porto Antigo 2
this overlooked the pool and the gardens as well as the wonderful sea view.
The apartment was well equipped and was cleaned daily, the location of this complex is quite easily the best on the Island.
But just as important was the help and friendly advise given by the owner at the time of booking.
She recommended restaurants and bakeries water sports and the organisations to visit for these.
She has worked really hard with her agent in Sal who gives a 1st class service, and will iron out any small hic cups should they occur.
I cannot wait to return and would definatly go with the same owner who has several apartments over the 3 sites with studios 1 bedroomed and 2 bedroomed properties.
Try it you will not be disapointed.
Wir haben das kleine Studio mit Terrasse für zwei Wochen gemietet. Die Lage ist sehr schön, Blick auf das Meer, alle Geschäfte, Restaurants und Cafés in der Nähe. Die Wohnanlage ist tatsächlich zurzeit in Santa Maria konkurrenzlos, wenn man nicht in einer der Hotelanlagen wohnen möchte.
Das Studio ist schlicht und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, wird jeden Tag gereinigt. Bei kleinem Trinkgeld zu Beginn des Aufenthalts für die Putzdame bekommt man mehr Handtücher, öfter Bettwäsche usw. ;-). Rund um die Uhr patrouillieren durchweg nette Wachleute der Anlage.
Da das Studio an einem Sandplatz liegt, der öfter als Fußballplatz der einheimischen Kids genutzt wird, und mehrere Restaurants mit z.T. lauter (Life-)Musik in der Nähe sind, darf man nicht allzu geräuschempfindlich sein.
Der Pool bietet nicht genug Liegen für alle Gäste, es stehen gegen ein paar Euro am Strand Liegen am Strand zur Verfügung.
Wir haben uns insgesamt sehr wohl gefühlt, man darf nicht von europäischen Standards ausgehen, es ist eine nette, aufstrebende afrikanische Nation, deren Motto "no stress" ist. In diesem Sinne sehr empfehlenswert.
The beach is a dream and the resort is built upon this dream beach.
No driving or walking needed for either the beach or the shops as most everything you would need for any type of family holiday whether its active watersports, such as wind surfing, scuba diving, surfing, swimming) pony rides, quad bikes, safari trips over the dunes etc, walking, deep sea fishing, reading or just lazing on the beach or around the pool.
The airport is a 15 min drive by taxi (very accessible) and cost approx 12 euros.
The nearest town is Santa Maria and is 3 mins level walking from end to end
All banks, shops, restaurants etc. Are within 3 mins level walk of the complex. Apartments are clean on arrival and extra cleaning,linen and towel changes can be arranged and paid for direct with agent
I do not charge extra for air con, water or electricity.
