Imagine yourself in a hammock on your balcony, a cool refreshing drink within reach and the most amazing panoramic views of the bay and surroundings of Mindelo. If you like the idea, then you should stay a few nights at the Terra Lodge on the island of Sao Vicente.

The 11 standard rooms and one suite, in this eco-friendly hotel, all offer the same stunning views and who needs a television (there isn’t one) or AC (it does have a fan), when you have WIFI.

The hotel was built using local resources and is equipped with solar panels that generates the power for the whole building. The hotel also recycles its own waste water and like many hotels nowadays, doesn’t change the towels and bedlinen on a daily basis.

Breakfast is served on the terrace, or inside the bar area if it’s cooler, and consists of home-made pastries and yoghurt, locally produced cold meats and jams, Fogo coffee and herbal teas, bread, eggs and seasonal fruits.

Other than breakfast and snacks, the hotel doesn’t serve dinner yet, but it’s within walking distance of many restaurants and bars. If you want to hang around the hotel, you can relax in one of the sun loungers by the rectangular pool, take a refreshing dip, or you can always return to your room and relax in your hammock.

In a quiet residential area, so ideal if you like to relax, but still want to be walking distance of the town centre and harbour.
