Casa das Ilhas - Paúl - Santo Antao - Cabo Verde



Paúl is the greenest of valleys of Santo Antão island.

The muletrack over Lombo Comprido, once of utmost importance, has metamorphised into the wellknown hiking track 101 from the crater of Cova de Paúl to Vila das Pombas at sea-level.

The recently built B&B Casa das Ilhas is surrounded by sugar cane plantations, mango and monkey bread fruits, Papaya- und Banana and nothing else. It stands high benath the valley and gives rest to hikers and guests coming for a relaxing leave where there is little more than silence. They are happy with the fact that getting to the next road, bar, restaurant or shop means at least 10 min of walk.

The kitchen offers the best from the local market. Halfboard, Breakfast and Supper (desert and coffee free) are always to be booked jointly with the accommodation as there is no other restaurant near by.

In the afternoon, coffee and cake are freely offered. Lunch, vegetarian food, special dishes for vegetarians or alergics can be arranged for on appointment.

Experienced in the hotel business, Dominique, Katelijne and Paulo can organize that a driver meets you at the harbour of Porto Novo upon arrival. If you like, you can make use of the day of arrival for a three hours walk down from the crater of Cova to Casa das Ilhas (about 3 hours) and your luggage finds it way to the house by itself.
see Santo Antão hiking map, track 101

In any case, your luggage will be transportet from the road up to the house.

Rooms are, like everything on the compound, brandnew, simple and well chosen with a view over the valley and the sea. Some of the rooms offer private showers (hot and cold water) /WC, others make use of perfectly clean shared facilities in sufficient number.

For families, spacy rooms with up to 4 beds are available. Guest liking a little more space may prefer the double SUPERIOR.

Located in the centre of the valley, access to the famous hiking trails of Paúl in all directions is given within half an hour. The range covers at least a week of good hikes. Local guides can be made available on appointment.

To reach the next supermarket, bank, postoffice and all other kind of urban facilites takes at least half an hour by bush-taxi.

Spoken: Creole, Dutch, Englisch, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
