About the Property
3 + 1 bed villa sleeps 7 , Murdeira Village, 10 mins from Sal airport
We holidayed in this villa before we bought. We liked being so close to the ocean, the direct sea view, sunbathing on our own roof terrace, the sounds of the waves and the warmth and cosiness of the outside dining area at night. With windows on three sides, there's lots of light and natural ventilation to enjoy being indoors too. There is a small beach within about 80 metres, for swimming and snorkelling, sunbathing or picnic. You will often be the only people there. The whole complex has security, and you can wander around freely, day or night, and just enjoy the simple things in life at the ocean's edge.
An extensive inventory is available upon request, to make this villa your home for your stay in Sal. Normally there is some food and drink for you to use and replenish so you don't come to a totally empty house. We have shipped full containers of furniture, equipment and decorations which we chose for this house which was already furnished. All windows have insect netting and there are oiled mahogany wood shutters on both floors. Shutters add security as well as keep out the sun's heat. If there are things flying around netting is very useful.
The owners have been letting property in the UK and overseas for over thirty years, and letting a villa in Sal since 2005.

Things to do: Murdeira. Stroll a few yards to swim from cove opposite villa or a little further to a sandy beach.
Walk or jog for miles up the empty shores. Climb Monte Leon. Swim or snorkel in the sea. Fish from the shore. Picnic in an undiscovered spot by the water. Swim in the pool, dine at the water's edge. Relax, watch the sea, listen to the ocean, birds and crickets, gaze at the stars. Unwind, read books, listen to music, sunbathe in the privacy of your own roof terrace or balcony. Wind surf or kite surf in Murdeira Bay. Espargos, see the real Cape Verdes, visit shops, grocery stores, restaurants, market, bars, bank, notary, solicitors. Santa Maria, tourist restaurants, hotels, diving, wind surfing, kite surfing, pubs, banks, hotels. Pedra de Lume, extinct volcano crater with salt lakes like the Dead Sea to bathe and roll in black mud. Burracona, volcanic caves and natural swimming pool. Palmeira a working fishing village. Occasionally whales come into Murdeira Bay. Turtles come to lay their eggs on Murdeira beaches from June onwards. You might even see one when you are snorkelling. Hire a car, a wonderful opportunity to escape off-road - there are many tracks to follow to remote beaches and vantage points, as well as to inland spots where the terrain changes so quickly, it must be a geographer/geologist's paradise. Watch the stars and planets by night due to low light pollution in the remote bay.
Other Activities: Kite surfing, quad biking, cycling, dinghy sailing, music festival
Golf: Nearest golf course is on Sao Vicente Island. It's a strange course, as it's all brown - the greens, the fairways and the roughs.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: The owners first came to Sal in 2005 having known about it for many years. We are British but have lived international lives. I was born in Scotland and my husband in India. We spend several winter months in Sal, much of which is spent on improving and maintaining the property. We have a house in London near Queen's Club and spend much of the summer on our boat with our two dogs (rescued from Cape Verde).
Why the Owner Chose Sal, Cape Verde:
We stayed in this villa for over two weeks before we bought it. It was the first time we had really enjoyed staying in self catering accommodation because it had a homely feel. During that time we paced out every nook and cranny in Murdeira and decided that this one was in a lovely location and already well equipped.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Where else could you be so close to the sea? Glorious sea views and wonderful sunsets overlooking what we call the mini rock of Gibraltar (Monte Leon). Sound of the waves - sometimes you can feel them! Well laid out with sunny/shady spots and choice of temperatures. Possibility of outdoor living all day long. High ceilings make it cool and airy. Wood shutters control temperature and light whilst giving privacy and security.
