Dreaming holiday in the very heart of the historic center of Salvador.
Looking for a unique apartment in Salvador ? Looking for a warm welcome, lots of space for you and a huge and beautiful lobby to meet with other guests ? Want to live in an authentic colonial neighborhood which is very quiet and probably the safest area of Salvador ?
Sounds good to you ? Don't look further , you get it! ''La Maison' de Salvador is definitely the place for you to stay.
Located a few minutes walk from Pelourinho, the center of Salvador´s tourist and nightlife, ''La Maison'' is in the beautiful Sto Antonio neighborhood that hosts 10 of the 15 smartest hotels and Posadas (guest houses) of Salvador. Security is very high, although as in the rest of Brazil, you must remain vigilant after 22:00. Neighborhood safety is not the only reason why so many hotels have sprung up in recent years in the Sto Antonio street. The beautiful Pelourinho is particularly noisy at night. While Sto Antonio street who once have been the most expensive of the city is still a residential area and remains relatively quite. The exceptional view that the street offers Bayside did the rest of the work to attract plenty very nice Posadas...
I'm an artist. This house is not a Posada. It's my last work... It reflects the syncretism of the city. This is the result of ten years I spent in Salvador, including six years building and decorating LaMaison for you. I made it smart, clean, comfortable and as cheap as it can be.
Natural stones, woodwork and floors, furnitures and works of art, distribution of volumes and the captivating presence of the sea give the house an undeniable charm. And it is not limited only to the ground floor ... Every room, every studio have a large space, sea view and terraces and has its own charm.
As an Artist, I love to create and invent everyday a new world. I'm now living with my son in one of the best place to live on Earth. The small Capão valley...One busnight away from Salvador in the Chapada Diamantina. I'm trying to set up a permaculture environment in a small piece of land. And a River Runs Through It ...Even if I'm far, I am monitoring your stay at La Maison and will stay in contact with you if you need it.
My former wife Yanelis will receive you at La Maison with typical south American empathy. She is not Bahian, she is Cuban. Yanelis speaks French Spanish and Portuguese fluently and understand a bit of English (she's getting better all the time ♫ ♪...). She'll does anything to make you love the house and feel home in a typical southern American way. She can prepare caipirinhas ( the most famous Brazilian cocktail) as well as Mojitos (the Cuban one) or fresh fruit juice for you. We'll try to have always free coffee, please feel free to ask if we forget. And because in Salvador it is difficult to find conscientious workers, Yanelis will personally clean your room before you check in. If there is one thing that Yanelis don't like it's a dirty house.
We are not a Pousada, we won't clean your room during your stay until you stay more than a week or ask it , neither change your sheets. (But we provide you with all what you need to clean the room and bathrooms during your stay ).
When you book this apartment,you have 35 m2 of privacy... In your apartment you'll find an entrance, a large bathroom (sea view from the shower ...), a great bedroom widely open to the sea, and a lovely garden.
Because the house have a lot of small stairs, we won't recommend it for people with locomotion troubles.

Cette grande maison à plusieurs étages est décorée d'objets anciens qui lui donne une atmosphère de musée ! Ici on voyage deux fois dans le temps et a Salvador . Chambre confortable
The apartment was very beautiful with indoor and outdoor seating areas. The room I stayed in was very clean, had it's own bathroom and balcony. Very nice. My host was very accommodating even with our language barrier. Breakfast was delicious with a large pot of wonderfully strong coffee. A very pleasant experience.
Not the quietest, but definitely one of the nicest places to stay! The house is just gorgeous and the additional breakfast we booked was great.
Salvador... What an amazing place. Made all the better for staying at Xavier's house in Santo Antonio. The house has been marvellously designed with art and antiques and has the most spectacular view over the bay. Janelis did a wonderful job of playing host and the location was very well situated within a 10 minute walk to the Pelourinho. We stayed with our 1 year old son who loved the place also. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone.
C'est un charmant endroit avec une charmante chambre. Le quartier est très tranquille et vraiment très beau. On a été très bien accueilli, la décoration est vraiment très belle. La chambre était très propret nous n'avons manqué de rien.
We spent 4 nights in Xavier's place that is located in Sant'Antonio, really close to Pelourinho and with a stunning sea view from the balcony! We reccomend Yanelis' breakfast (not included), very very good!
The pictures don't do this home justice. From the parlor to the bar, living area and bedroom, Xavier's welcoming home was very beautifully styled . The bed was comfortable. The showers were hot. The wifi access is reliable. The breakfast was delicious.
Outside of his home is the quiet yet bustling neighborhood of Santo Antonio, located just a minute's walk to pelourinho. In Santo Antonio you'll find lanchanttes, groceries and other odds and ends you may need while here. Think of Santo Antonio as a bedroom community as there are many families living there.
Janelis, was a most a most wonderful host, who although speaks little English, suffered patiently through my horrible portuguese as I tried to ask her tips about the city.
I would definitely stay here again.
