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 !

Umgeben von tropischer Natur den frechen Spatzen zuschauen. Und nach anstrengenden Touren über die steilen Wege durch die Terrassen des Paul-Tales entspannt die Beine hochlegen. Schöner Standort, um den Norden von Santo Antao zu erkunden. - 27/05/2022
