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.

  • We stopped for the night in Salvador before continuing to Chapada Diamantina. Xavier's place was perfect for the four of us (two couples). It's on the end of a quiet, safe street near a small grocer and bakery, and a 10 minute walk to the Pelourinho, so the location is great. The house is divided into several independent units, and ours upstairs had two bedrooms and a bathroom. One bathroom has a great balcony overlooking the bay. The common terrace downstairs from the unit was truly amazing though. Open to the bay, with a table and many chairs for lounging, it was the perfect place to start and end the day. The on-site caretaker stays in a separate unit, and makes a delicious breakfast (for a small charge) with eggs, fresh fruit, juice and coffee if you request it. We also had Xavier arrange a pickup from the airport which made things very easy.

    Overall the place is very clean, safe and in a great part of the city. The pictures don't do the decor or view justice. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Salvador!

  • Once you enter Xavier's home you see just how much time and effort he's invested in crafting a unique and attractive home. We found the upstairs private apartment to be just right. There was often a comfortable breeze coming in and the view is either industrial-chic or ocean blue depending on where you stand and what you want. The bed and pillows were comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom. Xavier was welcoming and even invited us to join him and some friends for New Year's Eve. All of the other guests in his house were very friendly and nice and we enjoyed talking with them. Overall a very positive experience.

    Response from Xavier:

    thanks Simone, be welcome back

  • The journey in Xavier's house was perfect. The room was clean and nice. The room is well located in Santo Antonio area just a few walk (10 - 15 min) from Pelhourinho that enable to be in a quiet area. Flat is perfect if you are a family of 3 or 4.
    You have also a nice sea view but just a little noise from the road downside but that is the price if you want a seaview.
    You will be received by Yanelis who can prepare if you request the best breakfast in Brazil we had!
    Xavier was very helpful to prepare our trip, we highly recommend also to ask for the taxi service.

  • Très bel appartement avec vue sur la baie et le port de Salvador, propre, dans une belle maison bien décorée. Xavier et Yanelis sont des hôtes très accueillants, sympathiques et serviables. Yanelis prépare d'excellents petits déjeuners à la maison ; elle cuisine également de très bons kébabs dans un petit resto calme et très agréable dans la même rue. Un super séjour!!!

  • Séjour très agréable dans une magnifique maison pleine de cachets.
    Très belle vue. Très bonne situation par rapport au Pelourinho.
    Quartier très calme malgré le murmure de la ville.

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
