LUXURY fitted studio apartment (48sq mt) it is a spacious studio with fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with bath and shower over, and bidet. Quality fitted furniture throughout. A mosquito and fly screen have been fitted to the patio doors so that they can be left open on an evening with the shutters closed.
There are beautiful botanical gardens, tennis courts, swimming pools for adults and children with children's play areas around the complex . The complex is very spacious and is situated a 15-20 minute easy walk from the charismatic town of Santa Maria where there is a mixture of African, Brazilian and Portuguese cultures, colours and sounds. There are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from in Santa Maria.
24 hr security and reception on the complex. There are 3 swimming pools (not all in use in low season) 2 pool bars with 1 serving snacks and both has internet access and a Restaurant on site serving different styles of food. Different daily activities (peak season- Nov-Apr) held between Callistimon, Cactus and Club House, Quiz nights, BBQ nights. There are tennis courts to use for a small charge. There is a small supermarket on the complex (open high season-winter only), Ice Cream Parlour, Bakery/Pizzeria and a Sports Bar. The complex also has a free shuttle bus that goes to Santa Maria Town and Ponta Preta beach where Vila Verde have a Bar/Restaurant and sunbeds . Use the Owners shuttle pass to get discount off drinks and food on the complex. Taxis will pick you up from outside the Reception area and the cost is set at 3-4 euros (as at Apr 2016). Or if you fancy doing what the locals do, you can use Sal's traditional transport which are small mini buses or open top jeeps and these are called Alugers. The drivers will pap their horns at any people walking and shout out where they are going, just hop aboard. It's cheaper than a taxi and a way of getting to know the friendly locals.
There are a few beaches to choose from and because they are so long you can always find an area where it feels like you are the only people on it, it's magical. The nearest beach being only a 10 minute walk. Santa Maria town beach is only 15-20 minutes walk. Because the apartment is situated on the narrowest part of the Island, you can actually walk from one beach, across the desert land to the infamous Kite Beach. Feeling lazy, taxis will drive on the desert land to the kite beach. There is a restaurant on kite beach along with kite hire.
Don't wait too long to visit this undiscovered gem of an Island.
Be aware this is a third world country which may have power/water cuts intermittently.
On booking with me I will provide useful information for your holiday prior to going and once in the apartment you will find a helpful Information Pack. I have a key holder on site who will meet you at Reception when you arrive.
If your arrival to the complex is after midnight there will be a small surcharge of 20 euros.
