Outside the property

There is a large covered terrace, a separate sun terrace with two soft loungers and private garden that has a mix of tropical plants and two large hammocks. The total size of the villa and garden is 310,94 sq meters. Due to its location and aspect it is sheltered from the prevailing trade winds so it is warm, even in the winter months. It is also exceptionally quiet as no traffic is allowed in the development. There is infinity pool just 20M away that looks out to see. The development has its own desalination plant for the production of clean fresh drinking water and comprises of twenty detached villas, fifteen semi-detached bungalows and apartments.


The Beaches

There is private access to a small-secluded sandy beach accessible by villa owners down steps built into the cliff. The steps to this beach are on the other side of the pool that can be seen from the bedroom window, about fifty meters from the villa. On the other side of the small beach is the town of Vila Do Maio. A short walk down through the town brings you out on the main street overlooking the long white sandy main beach. Here you will find a few bars and restaurants. It’s the place the fishermen bring in their catch and where the locals like to hang out. About 12 min in the other direction is Ponta Pretta beach. It runs many kilometers south without any sign of civilization.

Please note: At certain times of the year the waves in Cape Verde can be quite large and this can make bathing in the sea challenging. However this doesn't normally last more than a day or two. Sometimes under these conditions the sand can shift quite dramatically. The small beach close to the villa usually has less sand June to November (occasionally none) and much more sand December to May. Villa Do Maio main beach (8 min) and Ponta Pretta beach (12 min) always have sand.


Climate & Weather

The climate is tropical and dry. The average daytime temperature remains around 25°C and whilst there are highs and lows due to the influence from the Ocean, the changes do not exceed 10°C (Min 15°C Max 35°C) . The sea temperature is between 23°C in February and March up to 27°C in September and October (several degrees warmer than the Canaries). The north east trade winds are at their strongest between January & April. (This is why Cape Verde is one of the worlds top kite surfing destinations). The rest of the year the wind is variable from calm to moderate. Rainfall is very rare, it doesn't normally rain at all between November & August. From mid August to mid October it is hot, humid with the occasional heavy shower.

Description of Maio Island

The terrain around Maio is made up of forests in the northern part and dry desert dominating the rest of the area around the south. The mountains including a view of Monte Batalha dominates the Northwest. In the south-west there is a large salt flat where you can find interesting flora & fauna, locals still gather salt here today. There are long stretches of perfect white sandy beaches, quiet towns, warm clear waters with very little commercialism and friendliest locals in anywhere in Cape Verde.
