Our Guest’s Opinion

“We loved Pedracin Village and were so pleased to have stayed longer than the recommended three days.”

- Miss Swain


What we love

  • You'll not get a better placed hotel on the island. You're situated in a rural location amongst the mountains, with outstanding views.


Good to know

  • Pedracin Village has limited facilities, relying on solar panels for hot water. Service can be slow, English can be limited and breakfast basic.
  • Because of the hotel's rural location, guests will need to take a taxi if they wish to eat in local restaurants.
  • We offer a panoramic transfer tour as standard on all package holidays that include Santo Antão. This is an approximate three-hour tour around the island, ensuring you get a chance to witness the natural beauty and highlights.


Fantastic panoramas

Pedracin Village is a delightfully quiet and unique holiday hideaway retreat, elevated on a steep mountainside and benefiting from spectacular views of Santo Antão’s impressive green landscape. The swimming pool is ideal for a quick dip to cool off, while the surrounding terrace boasts amazing views down the valley – the perfect place to relax with a cold drink or a good book.

Bungalow guest rooms

Pedracin Village offers 32 traditional and simple bungalow rooms, linked by cobbled pathways which meander through the property’s tropical grounds. This hotel has limited facilities, relying on solar panels for its hot water, and serves basic breakfast, lunch and dinner choices from the restaurant located next to the pool.

Exploring Santo Antão

The hotel is located on the north side of the island, and guests will experience a wonderful drive across the interior of Santo Antão to reach Pedracin. The island’s largest town of Ribeira Grande is a 10-minute drive away, with its cobbled streets and typical Cape Verdean architecture. A stay at Pedracin Village offers a great opportunity to experience this wonderful island and is particularly popular with avid walkers.
