Are You Maximising Your Villa

11 February 2011

Think about your holiday Cape Verde property. You probably use the indoor space effectively, such as the bedrooms, the dining room and the kitchen. However, how much thought have you given to the potential of the land around your Cape Verde property? Whether you own a lot of space around your holiday home, or simply a small back garden, there are ways to maximize the potential of this space so that you can increase your enjoyment of your Cape Verde property.

The gorgeous tropical weather of Cape Verde will make you want to spend most of your time outdoors anyway, so here are some tips on how to improve the outdoor space around your Cape Verde property.

Create an outdoor eating area. This can be as simple as a small patio with a table, a few chairs, and an umbrella. Add a barbeque and you will have set the stage for many enjoyable al fresco meals in the warm Cape Verde air.

Grow your own food. The warm climate here in Cape Verde is great for growing the basics such as carrots, potatoes, corn and pumpkins, and also some more exotic treats. Having a vegetable garden on your property can be a fun project and will save you money as well.

Add a hammock. The ultimate in relaxation furniture, all you need for a hammock is two trees the right distance apart. You can set it up in minutes, and look forward to hours of gently swinging in the breeze as you read your favourite book.

Create an outdoor play area - If you have kids, designate an area of the property as their special outdoor play space, which keeps them happy, active, and out of your hair! You can set up a slide, a swing, a trampoline, or a playhouse. Keep assortments of balls, hula hoops, skipping ropes and other such toys so that they will never get bored!
