A hidden gem in the middle of nature

Aldeia Manga is the first real Eco Lodge of the Cape Verde Islands. Our houses are constructed using ecological and recyclable materials: adobe, stones, wood and straw.
 Aldeia Manga awaits you with a garden spread out over 7,000 m², featuring bananas, guavas, papaya, mangos, bamboo and all manners of flowers and other plants.

Our swimming pond was cleared by hand and our water preparation process is conducted entirely without chemicals, 100 % ecological.

Imagine walking across the sugar cane and banana plants through the greenest valley of the Cape Verde Islands, with high mountains surrounding and the blue sea at the lower end of the valley.

You’ll find these experiences, plus many more at Aldeia Manga Eco Lodge !


Ribeira do Paúl Valley
Remote, yet accesible

The Ribeira de Paúl or more simply, Paúl Valley, is a refuge for nature lovers and hikers. It might well be described as the green heart of the island.

Sugarcane, bananas, papaya and mangos are grown in Paúl Valley, as are potatoes and vegetables. Breadfruit and coconut trees are also…

Prachtige locatie in de groene vallei. Ruime huisjes. Je moet wel heel wat trappen doen en dat is vermoeiend met zware koffers. Niet aangeraden voor rolstoelen. Vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Ideale omgeving om tot rust te komen of om te hiken. - 20/11/2021
