We were met at the airport by Ernesto who was very helpful throughout our stay. The apartment is on an upper floor and is clean and secure and safe. The local beach has been recently upgraded and is within walking distance as are some new bars and a place to watch football on large TV!. There are shops and a bakery and Chinese Restaurant opposite and a good and cheap bus service into the old town. We heard some world class music at Casa De Morna which is a club in town operated by Tito Paris and bought and cooked for ourselves excellent fish available from the fish market or street sellers.
The apartment is near enough to the ferry terminal for trips to Santo Antao - a very interesting mysterious island.
The apartment is an excellent base for exploration of Sao Vicente and excellent value for money. Our tip - change your currency into local escudos and obtain the 10% advantage.More
