We are situated in the Cidade Velha, considered the birthplace of the Cape Verdean nation. In 2009, Cidade Velha was declared by UNESCO, World Heritage of Humanity. Here we concentrate a considerable set of historical monuments to be visited.
Simple housing with a large balcony and good view of the sea, where we love to receive friends. We serve breakfast made by products made by the family, like goat cheese, natural yoghurt and several sweets.
The meals are made by the family with much love and affection, we have the natural flavors of the islands and the world, the Mediterranean, India, China, Americans and certainly Africans. We also like to guide our clients and friends in the discovery of Ribeira Grande de Santiago. We make routes of knowledge of local culture and nature. We have excursions in the sea, with fishermen, where you can enjoy to learn how to fish in an artisan way.
So now we are building a new project. We want to make an ecological village and we look for volunteers who have some experience in construction (adobe, stone and wood).
The location of the new project is about 6 km from the capital (Praia) and 6 km from the Cidade Velha and about one kilometer from the ocean.
We want to build 4 small bathrooms, 1 dining room. The project will also have a chicken coop and enough fruit trees. We would like the volunteers to also participate in new ideas for the project - these were welcomed.
