The accommodation itself is very nice. Rooms are clean and spacious. The view over the valley is so unique! We missed a bit sort of privat space outside of our room. The dining room is a tiny space, something like 4x5m into which they squeeze about 16-17people and serve really cheep food. The owner is a bossy lady, who treats... More

Dudarik gabe, berriro ere joateko moduko lekua. Bailara ezagutzeko toki aproposa. Gosaria hobetu ezina. Lotokia goxoa. Without a doubt, once again the place to go. Ideal place to get to know the valley. Breakfast is not improved. Rooms very good.

This was our favourite place to stay on Cape Verde. The views are stunning. Kate, the owner, speaks fluent French, German and English and was extremely helpful in giving us hiking recommendations and detailed directions of how to get to the start using local aluguers (shared taxis). It is ideally located for lots of different hikes. I recommend arriving as... More

To reach this pension, you have to do some serious hiking already, but it is worth it. The Belgian hostess is made for this work and place, she will help you with all your questions and will recommend different hikes. Nice view over the valley. Only the food was not that great, but hey, don't let that stop you.

We stayed in Casa das Ilhas for three nights during our time on Santo Antao and enjoyed it very much, although it is a small and basic hotel. As mentioned by other travelers, it's located on a hill which you need to climb (takes about 15 minutes). We were not aware of this and no one was waiting for us... More

The location of Casa das Ilhas is amazing. The Paul valley in which it is located is like a piece of paradise. It takes a fifteen minute hike up to get to the hotel, but luckily there are carriers arranged for the luggage. The rooms are simple but comfortable. Food at night is simple, traditional but fine. It’s nice to... More

Kate runs her hostel very determined based on 16 years experience of living in Cape Verde. She is a warm person that tries to help her guests as much as possible, but this service comes with a price. The rooms, jet beautiful located, are rather small and the dining room, when filled with 24 people, becomes almost claustrophobic. And don't... More

Casa das Ilhas is a 15 minutes uphill walk from the road into the beautiful and lush Paul valley. To get there, take an aluguer (shared van) to Vila das Pombas (Paul) and then a taxi or another aluguer up the valley - just ask your driver to drop you off, they all know the place. Make sure you call... More
