• Beachfront • Eco-friendly • Winter sun • Rooms sleeping 2 • Villas sleeping up to 4
Natural materials such as driftwood, stones and shells plus yards of white linen drapes have been used to decorate these stylish stone cottages, all with sea views. The Italian owners, speak English and will welcome you with open arms to their secret haven. Guest may choose to stay in a standard or superior room (sleeps 2), a self-catering apartment (sleeps 2) or one of two self-catering villas (one sleeping 2 and one sleeping 4).
A 10-minute stroll across the dunes will bring you to the turquoise water of the ocean where you’ll find hammocks and sun loungers in the shade of rustic cabanas. The sea here can be rough but are perfect for cooling off in the shallows. For swimming, a sheltered cove a further 20 minutes away is safer. There is no swimming pool, part of the sustainable ethos of this charming lodge.
The on-site restaurant serves a fusion of Cape Verdean and Italian cuisine, and due to the seclusion of the lodge, an upgrade to half board or full board is recommended. Alternatively, some of the cottages have their own kitchens.
“We pick up our guests at the airport and after 30 minutes off-road we are in the middle of nowhere. For those who like nature, this is the best place in Cabo Verde!” Larissa Lazzari, owner & manager Spinguera Ecolodge
