This is the story of a trio of Belgian investors who fell under the spell of Cape Verde, and in particular Sao Vicente, the island of Cesaria Evora, which has remained untouched by mass tourism. 

They have joined forces to launch an ambitious real estate project overlooking Joao Evora Bay, under the banner “Barefoot Luxury”: an invitation to a barefoot lifestyle… 

A number of villas have already been built, with more on the way. Cube-shaped, with flowing lines, raw concrete, wood and locally quarried basalt rock: minimalism is the order of the day in both architecture and interior design, limited to a few pieces of vintage furniture and local crafts. 

Antwerp studios Polo Architects and Going East have given priority to outdoor views and natural light. Within a few months, 36 villas will be available for sale or rent, as well as a lodge, Respiro, with a seawater pool and beach bar.

A new hotel concept that shakes up the codes, combining art of living, comfort and investment.
