This is an amazing little place in the middle of the Paul valley. Very worth the hike and functions perfectly as a centre to explore the area. The view is just incredible. The rooms and the food are basic, nothing fancy but just what you need. I can imagine that once it gets busier the dining room might be a... More

We don't normally write recommendations for accommodations, however the very harsh and unfair comments of the Italian gentleman we read (brutta esperienca) made us. We happend to stay at casa das ilhas at the same time that he did. In our opinion he was rude and out of place in this super friendly casa familiar. It is true that this... More

My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. It's a great location for both hiking in the hills and getting to the main town. The owners, Kate and her associate have created a very special place, a peaceful home from home for well seasoned and friendly travelers. It's perched on a hill, 10 to 15 minutes walk from the...

The beauty of this place lies in it's simplicity and location. Situated in a beautiful valley and surrounded by the most fantastic landscape, these simple lodges allow you access to some of the best hikes available on the island. The hosts have a detailed knowledge of the area and are able to recommend various walks and hikes that allow you... More

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
