    Both Trevor and Mark run extremely reliable businesses. I have a water filter and it makes a big difference, saves on lugging large pots of water about. You might want to consider mosquito blinds as well. Once it got green on Vila Verde they became a bit of a problem, Colin Wilson CV Screens is the person to contact if you need to. Congratulations on your apartment being nearly ready, it is lovely to go out to your own place, we love it!

    Book locally, not done it myself but the day trip to Fogo is supposed to be amazing, if a long day.

    I will put a message on the VVOG asking the money back people to look on here and get in touch with you.

    I agree with Ariminum, Sal plus another island is more than enough. Internal travel can be frustrating and with the amount of flights in the above you will come back with steam coming out of your ears and “Cabo Verde No Stress” will be swear words instead of being true.

    Very nice looking site and a reasonable price for getting a visa in advance. I agree with Blueyonder, add the self catering option (I do have a vested interest as an Owner of an apartment on Sal, though I don’t rent it out I have a lot of friends who do). 8)

    The Morabeza is lovely, and it is possible to go to the other islands as a day trip or for a few days if you want to add some variety.

    There are definitely a few people in the Vila Verde Owners Group that are looking for money back, but only a few, it is primarily for those Owners who wish to be informed about the resort and has a Legal Group (fee paying)that is monitoring Tecnicil H&R and acting on behalf of members complaints.

    Apologies, I knew they looked wrongly spelt, was having a senior moment-they are both wonderful to visit!

    We went to Sau Vincente and Sau Antonio one trip and it was lovely and is an adventure. Sal is much more developed with excellent restaurants and beach side facilities. Day trips via air are available for Fogo which I have been told is a fantastic day out, if long. I hope to do it later this year.

    Hi, Santa Maria has come along in leaps and bounds since I first went in 2006. There are some very nice restaurants, reasonably priced. Wind surfing is available in two main places, by the Morabeza and up the other end by Angulas. A very good supermarket called Casu by the Enecol petrol station, a new fruit and veg market. Try info@sal4rent.com for good quality, reasonably priced self catering apartments. If you want to go more expensive but lovely I like the Morabeza best.

    I found a good flight last week in October £415 and meant to put the info on here then forgot.
    More info on the flight from Schiphol to Sal Island, click here:

    TAP fly via Lisbon daily scheduled flights from Heathrow and Gatwick. It’s a much more comfortable service but you do have to change planes so it takes longer. I combined it with a day in Lisbon last time. Lovely city, a couple of Euros to get in and out on the airport bus.

    It has improved, but is still a lot of cobbles. Inside Vila Verde which has a supermarket and restaurant and lovely pools the streets are mainly paving and flat reducing the need for trips to Santa Maria.

    Hi Jean,
    I copied your request and pasted it onto the Vila Verde Forum to see if any Town House or Villa Owners are in a position to rent to you. As said, Sal is very flat and suitable for recovering from a hip replacement.

    Kind regards, Alyson
