I did not stay at the inn Casa das Ilhas, but I found this Inn when i was walking along Route 101 and I was surprised to find a place that was so neat, clean and nice in the middle of the mountain, but when I met Dominique, Katelijne and Paulo the owners I completely understood that they were in love with the island and its special atmosphere. The inn is on the island of Santo Antao, but it doesn't appear in any database which is a good sign for those who want to be able to escape mass tourism. A Santo Antao is reached by ferry from St. Vincent and it is the best Island in Cape Verde for walkers and cyclists who are not afraid of outstanding 40%
undoubtedly it's the most idyllic hotel in the area, but the absence of references this is a good option as it's one of the cheaper choices. It's very clean, it has all the amenities you need, the food is the best in the area and it's very quiet. Obviously it's not the Melia, but neither does it have US rates. The walk is now under construction (summer 2011), so next time when we come back it will be a delight. The beach is less than 10 minutes from the room. It has hammocks on the beach and diving centers and kite surfing on both sides of the beach. The walk to the beach comes just to this area and reaches the "city" in a heartbeat.

If I had to highlight something about this hotel I would highlight the comforts it offers and the spaciousness. In fact I could say that I was more comfortable than in my own home! Even the sports facilities were excellent. For meals you can choose more typical dishes or other more international dishes, although it really does not matter because everything is exquisite, and at the breakfast buffet you can try everything. One of the reasons that led me to choose this hotel is its proximity to the beach, an amazing beach. But if I had to choose again, it would be for all the details, because all the qualities are great, from the smallest detail to the care offered.
