“This was our favourite place that we stayed during our trip to Cape Verde. The house and the room was bright, spacious and very comfortable, with a lovely terrace and garden. There is also a shop that sells local handmade products and art. Magali and her team are such lovely people - they were always so kind and helpful, the food they cooked was delicious and very good value, and they helped us to arrange a great day trip with a local guide in Ribeiro de Barca. I would highly recommend staying here.”

“We've spent almost two weeks in Antonio's top floor self-contained apartment. Can't imagine a better choice to stay in Tarrafal! It was even better than we have expected based on the pictures and description online. The location is perfect. Nice and quiet, away from the main village centre yet close enough to walk everywhere. You can see the ocean from the top floor of the building. Everything is only 5 min walk away: the village centre with all shops, restaurants, tourist information, banks (Cash machines available 24h, Revolut card works but charges 2OOCVE per transaction), the beach, the diving centre, the market and everything else you need. The apartment is spacious, very cosy, and stylish. It has all conveniences necessary and we felt so great there it was sometimes hard to leave (so we were usually late all the time:) ) There are two big bedrooms, with comfortable double beds, mosquito nets (very important as there were plenty mosquitos and they loved to feast on us) and shelves to unpack our clothes. The kitchen was large and equipped with everything we needed and more (fridge, gas cooker, cutlery, dishes, pots, salt, sugar, etc). There is also a bathroom with hot water. A map of the village is there for use and Antonio marked all the spots worth visiting. But the best part of the apartment is the huge terrace with an amazing panoramic view of the area: ocean on one side and mountains on the other side. There is a big table where you can have your meals. There are cosy seating arrangements where you just want to sit and relax all day. There is also a hammock! Whether you want to get some sun or hide in a shade a bit, you can find a perfect place to chill on the terrace. If it’s not enough for you, there is a next smaller terrace above it Antonio designs and makes all furniture by himself with the use of locally sourced, recycled materials. Everything looks really cool. He is a great host, always available next door. Lovely personality so easy to talk. Nice person to be around. He is also engaged in helping local community. He provides plenty on advice on where to eat, shop, go for trips, and can recommend trusted local guides and drivers. If you have any questions, just ask Antonio. And he speaks perfect English which made it very easy for us! We don’t speak Portuguese and communication was a bit difficult at times Antonio was also very kind to lend us his own body boards (we couldn’t find any rental anywhere – only big surf boards) so we could enjoy the waves. On the top of that, he is also an instructor in the local diving centre, which is only a few minutes walk away. If you fancy a dive, MAKE SURE TO ASK FOR ANTONIO to be your instructor. He will make sure you have an amazing experience, because he loves what he is doing. DO NOT GO with the owners of the centre, they lost their love for diving and will only discourage you if this is your first dive ever. If we ever go back to Tarrafal again, we will stay at Antonio’s for sure!”

“Casa Stela is a good situated house on the coast, with a very nice view on the sea which one can hear in the backgeround all the time. The whole house is biutifully decorated and stylish. The highlight for us were the very good and rich breakfasts, which are served on the rooftop. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Tarafal as a whole is very nice and the place to be if you want to relax and stay in a little lovely town.”
