120 m2 ground floor (bar, dining room, art gallery ...)
The kitchen is located on the ground floor. The kitchen is functional and equipped but is not completely finished. You can use it if you wish for lunch and dinner ( unaivalable for breakfasts).
Stairs to climb to the apartment or down to the kitchen may be difficult for people with reduced mobility.

Interaction with Guests

It is with the greatest pleasure that Yanelis on site or myself (by email) will assist you during your stay in Salvador. Do not hesitate to ask Yanelis its deals in Salvador, she is shy but loves to help. We are however not a Pousada and can not guarantee our permanent presence on the premises.

The Neighborhood

Santo Antonio neighborhood has changed! In ten years this district dedicated to a slow decay has seen install the finest guest houses in the city. Not less than 15 charming pousadas in the street!

For what reason?

1/ Proximity of Pelourinho : Close to the lively and noisy Pelourinho where you walk our neighborhood is quiet at night ...

2/ The beauty of the street and the view: In a unique Bahia neighborhood enjoy a quality of life forgotten in the rest of the city .

3/ Safety : The district is one of the safest Salvador .

Close to the house you'll enjoy visiting Fort Santo Antonio( world center of capoeira) and may assist a Samba on the square if you are lucky (50 meters). The Baroque church "Boquerão" is one of the nicest in Town (150 meters). Finally you can enjoy a " arumadinho " or " carne da sol" while drinking a beer at the Cruz de Pasqual (200 meters) unless you prefer the terrace restaurant Ulysses ( known throughout Salvador) 20 meters from the house) ...

Getting around

Most of our guests arrive at the airport. We work with a retiree who can wait and bring you home pretty near the same price as a taxi: 100 reais.
It is also possible to come to the airport by bus during day time.
The embarkation ports for Itaparica, the islands , Morro de Sao Paolo e Boipeba are located close to the house. The bus station is accessible by bus or taxi (25 reais). The area is rich in bus allowing easy access to the beaches.

  • 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.

  • 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!

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
