The space
The apartment building is a 17th century construction with Mediterranean-Indian style. All traditionally built with original coral stones, coral lime, and valuable wood. We restored the existing walls (1.30 cm large) and well-preserved roofs (in Iron Wood) but rebuilt windows, doors, and the floors. These ones with colour pigmented cement. Colours characterize the apartment… and the whole house.
Pictures testify it.
Internal stairs join the first-floor bedroom to the sitting room. The kitchenette entrance is at one of the sitting room corners. On top of all there is a panoramic terrace with a round view of the whole island and the seas. Outside the bedroom there is a roofed balcony and a large terrace. Other external stairs take guests from the terrace to the roof. All this space is reserved to apartment guests.
One of striking qualities of the whole house set up is a huge Indian almond tree, decades old, that covers most of the buildings and incredibly refreshes house, terraces, and garden. Moreover, the prevailing breezes enter from the garden and cool the apartment all the time.
Finally, the decoration is inventively joining old island historic finds, modern artistic pieces, books and just outdated and thrown away “junk”, however unusually reset, and all mixed with modern comfort.

Location

Mozambique Island, Nampula Province, Mozambique

The apartment is situated at the crossing of two small streets in the very middle of the Lime and Stone Town, as people refer to this part of town. It is situated on a higher part of town, so that you can admire the whole island from the roof terrace.
Nearby there are all the main tourist attractions, including the Jesuit Convent, now being the Museum. 10 minutes away lay the famous 16th century fortress of S. Sebastian with the Our Lady of Ballast Chapel, the oldest European building south of the Equator. 20 minutes away, on the other corner of the island, we have the little Fort of S. Laurence.
Around our building you also find restaurants, coffee shops, visiting trip organizers, gardens, and beaches. Swimming from the Peer is very pleasant and scenic. Walking on the coral platform at low tide is a safe but exciting adventure. Dhow sailing to nearby islets and large beaches is beautiful and relaxing. In the right season you can also easily encounter whales.
