The Colonial Guest House, Fogo, Cape Verde

Traditionally styled room at The Colonial Guest House.Traditionally styled room at The Colonial Guest House.

This charming little family-run hotel on Cape Verde's Fogo island oozes character and history. The 10 rooms with their traditional Portuguese decor are spacious, light and airy, most with either a balcony or a terrace. There is also a communal terrace with a bar, a restaurant and an outdoor pool.

The location is perfect. You're just a 12-minute walk from the beach, and within a short stroll of shops, bars and restaurants. It's also handy for heading inland to explore the volcanic craters, of which one is occupied by a vineyard and coffee plantation.

If island-hopping around Cape Verde is your bag, this is a great base with kids – especially older ones – while visiting Fogo.
