We stayed in Murdeira for 2 weeks looking carefully before buying. We loved the position and the feeling of light and airiness. At the edge of a West facing bay, with ocean views and beautiful sunsets, you can hear the sound of the sea and watch the colour of the water change from turquoise to dark blue to grey to glistening white under the moonlight, to jet black. Listen to the birds, and the palm fronds rustle in the breeze. Most guests spend their time outdoors, and enjoy sunbathing on the roof terrace overlooking the bay (teak chaise longues with mattresses), or lazing in the hammock (provided). Wake up to the smell of fresh baked bread, from the bread machine. Choice of 3 outdoor places to dine. Enjoy breakfast on east facing breakfast balcony, lunch on the roof terrace, sundowners and dinner on the west facing terrace surrounded by hibiscus. With small sandy beaches or coves to choose from, your closest one is about 100 yards, which slopes very gently. Space to store your sport equipment in locked quintal. Car parking outside. With windows, oiled mahogany shutters and balconies/patios on three sides, and insect netting throughout, the villa is kept cool, day and night by natural environmentally friendly methods. This part of the resort was built by a Cape Verde company in the late 90's. They installed the facilities needed for an Atlantic island including security as well as designing sensible properties specifically designed for the local climate using a local architect. About the owners. We have been letting this villa since 2005, and despite this being well furnished when we purchased from careful Germans, we have shipped out many extras such as futons from Notting Hill, teak garden furniture, solid wood furniture, quality bedding, kitchen appliances and decorations. Huge inventory upon request. Sal is great all year, for winter sunshine holidays, and in the summer too.
