Xavier's property is very well located. It's close to the Pelourinho neighborhood, but far enough that is quiet. The house is beautiful and has ocean views. Property is very clean.

As mentioned in the listing, Xavier no longer lives here and his ex-wife receives guests in the home. She is absolutely wonderful! I shared a couple of heartfelt conversations with her and she made me tea when I got sick from eating street food. The view from the room is stunning. In fact, it would be a perfect space to share with a partner. There's a lot of privacy and your own bathroom. The only challenges were check-in and internet. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) doesn't recognize the address and brings you to the other end of the street. This has to do with a complicated numbering system, but made it difficult to find the correct address. As mentioned in other reviews, the Internet isn't super reliable, especially in the room. My stay was great overall, just make sure you get detailed directions before you arrive. It is a very beautiful and unique space and I'd definitely stay here again.

Yanelis is such a warm host! She moved us into out room and made us feel welcome. From your bed, you have a view is like none other of the sea--a little piece of paradise. The area of San Antonio has wonderful cafes, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. In fact, There is a wonderful spot we ate at just next door on our first night. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to Pelourinho where you can find museums, even more galleries, shops, and nightlife. The home is also up the hill (about a 20 min walk) from Sao Joaquim Market, one of the oldest markets in Salvador. There you can purchase fresh produce, ceramics, jewelry, leather goods, musical instruments, sculptures, clothing, and hopefully catch the sunset! There's also a wonderful bread shop and antique shop just down the block. The room is more spacious that it appears in images and has wonderful privacy. A few nights we cooked and were so grateful to have access to the kitchen. Thank you for having us and looking forward to staying again!

Xavier's place is very nice ,clean and comfortable. It is well located close to some of the best sites in Salvador. I sent my young daughter and her friend to Salvador and she mentioned how nice and friendly Xavier and her family was. If I decide to go back to Salvador some time I will try to stay there myself.

Great location 10 minute walk to the Pelourinho. Xavier helped to arrange transportation from the airport which made arrival very easy. Rooms are clean and tidy. A good value for the money.

Hello, my name is Xavier, I'm french, and I'm 52 years old . I study history in france and then business and administration in Berkley (USA) Paris ( France) and Tokyo ( Japan). After working 10 years as an executive , I decided to change my life because i was allways waiting for hollydays to travel... Then I started travelling and travelling till I met my wife Yanelis who is cuban.We mooved to salvador 10 years ago. We have a nice 10 years old son and I' m waiting for him to be a little older to start traveling again, but this time with him...

I would love to be able to receive you home, because I love to share what I know about Bahia, but unfortunately, I now leave 500 kilometers away, in a paradise called vale do Capão located in the nice chapada diamantina a montagnous area. I recommend you to have a stay there, and yes, I can help if you want to visit the Capão area.

Because I'm living far away with my son, my wife, yanelis, will be the one who will receive you and help you home. As in '' hotel California'' song, it seems that she's program to receive … ( she love it so much...) She speaks French, Spanish and Portuguese and understand a little bit of English. She grown up in Cuba and her vision of salvador and the bahian society is really interesting. By the way, she knows very well Salvador and will be very pleased to share her knowledge with you.

I'll allways keep in touch with you by mail if you need

I wish you a wonderfull stay in our beautiful house

best regards Xavier

Bom dia, meu nome é Xavier, sou frances e tenho 52 anos . Estudei história na França e, depois administração de empresas em Berkley (EUA), Paris (França) e Tóquio (Japão). Depois de trabalhar 10 anos como executivo, decidi mudar a minha vida, porque eu estava sempre esperando as ferias para viajar ... Então eu comecei a viajar e viajar até que eu conheci a minha esposa Yanelis .Nós mudamos pra Salvador há 10 anos. Temos um filho lindo de 10 anos e eu estou esperando ele ser um pouco maior para começar a viajar novamente, desta vez com ele ...

Eu adoraria recebê-lo em casa, porque eu gosto de compartilhar o que eu sei sobre a Bahia , infelizmente, eu estou morando agora a 500 quilômetros de distância, em um paraíso chamado vale do Caão, na Chapada Diamantina . Eu recomendo que você tenha uma estadia lá, e sim, eu posso ajudar se você quiser visitar o Capão.

Porque eu estou vivendo longe com meu filho, minha esposa, Yanelis, será a pessoa que vai recebê-lo e ajudá-lo na casa. Como na canção '' Hotel California'' , parece que ela está programada para receber ... (ela reelmente gosta ...) Ela fala Francês, Espanhol e Português e entende um pouco de Inglês. Ela cresceu em Cuba e sua visão de Salvador e da sociedade baiana é realmente interessante. Ela conhece muito bem Salvador e vai ficar muito contente de compartilhar o seu conhecimento com você.

Vou manter contato com você por e-mail depois da reserva e tentar ajuda-lo si for necessario.

Desejo-lhe uma maravilhosa estadia em nossa bela casa

Abraços Xavier


Bonjour, Je m'apelle Xavier, j'ai 52 anset je suis français. J'ai fait une fac d'hitoire à Lyon puis un MBA à Berkeley (USA) Paris (France) et Tokyo (Japon). Après avoir travaillé 10 ans en tant que cadre supérieur, j'ai décidé de changer de vie parce que j'en avais marre d'attendre les vacances pour voyager ... J'ai commencé à voyager et voyager jusqu'à ce que je rencontre ma femme Yanelis à Cuba. Nous avons enménagé à Salvador il ya 10 ans. Nous avons un beau garçon de 10 ans et j'attends avec impatience qu'il grandisse un peu plus pour recommencer à voyager, cette fois ci avec lui...

J'aimerais pouvoir vous recevoir à la maison, parce que j'aime partager ce que je sais à propos de Bahia, mais malheureusement, je vis maintenant à 500 kilomètres, dans un petit paradis appelé ''Vale do Capão'' situé dans la Chapada Diamantina une zone de montagnes. Je vous recommande un séjour dans la Chaada diamantina, et oui, je peux vous aider si vous voulez visiter la région.

Ma femme, Yanelis vous recevra et vous aidera durant votre séjour à la maison. Comme dans la chanson '' hôtel California'' : ' she is program to receive'' (elle aime tellement cela...) Elle parle français, espagnol et portugais et comprends quelques mots d'anglais. Elle a grandi à Cuba et sa vision de Salvador et de la société bahianaise est vraiment intéressante. Par ailleurs, elle connait très bien Salvador et sera très heureuse de partager son savoir avec vous.

Je resterais, de toute façon en contact avec vous par mail si vous avez besoin d'aide.

Je vous souhaite un merveilleux séjour dans notre belle maison

cordialement xavier
