Vila Brandão is one of the best neighborhoods in Salvador. Located in between the most expensive and central areas of Salvador (Vitoria, Graça, Barra), it offers the feeling of a small village: 200 inhabitants, just a few houses near the sea, in the middle of a green aerea. Real Brazilian life, a bohemian mixture of fishers, working class people, artists, some students, some workless guys, a few strangers… teachers and dreamers.
We have a community "Mini-shop and instant food", a few bars and a lot of fresh fish and fresh fruits…
Airport Bus Stopp just on the square, a lot of busses passing by, taxi station
Other Things to Note
We are living in a community (favela). It is not dangerous, we know all our neighbors personally. For our community, the interaction with you, our guests, is very important. They have the opportunity to talk normally to strangers and middle class people, to have a beer together at the local bar, to get informations about other ways of living.
For you, it is an unique opportunity to break prejudices
Living in a community means: being respectful, sharing knowledge, giving an economic incentive to the place where you are and being a good example!
So: we encourage our guests to buy their beer in the community, to order pizza or traditional food with our neighbours, to play football with the kids…
We help to arrange small along-the-cost-boat-trips with the boys from the community… Everything is best practice! Let's learn from each other!
If you stay longer with us, we organize projects together.
Respect. Respect. Respect.
No guests from outside, if not accorded with the house mates.
no tolerance for sextourism or drugtourism at all.
we are open minded and GLBT friendly.
If something breaks, please replace it.
Please don’t take the books away, our library is part of our work.
You can also leave something personal so that you are part of our story.
Everybody is responsable to keep the the kitchen, bathrooms and livingrooms clean!
Please take care of our plants and animals; you will enjoy your stay even more!

living room with american kitchen - big windows on our garden, facing the sea & the sunset
Eu me senti na casa de umas boas amigas, linda vista, tudo simples mas lindo e aconchegante. A estadia no carnaval é perfeita, dá para chegar caminhando ao farol da barra. Muito obrigada por nos receber na sua casa.
What an amazing place!! The location was perfect, neighbours welcoming and our room was clean, compact but definitely sufficient... Silvia and Ceilia made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, there is a lovely warm feel about their home.. The great atmosphere combined with the sea, sun other guests and not forgetting the vodka, made our stay incredible.
Thank you both for making our visit a memorable one xx
Situation du logement idéale (proximité du centre historique et des beaux quartiers), très belle vue, et un accueil chaleureux !
Mon séjour à Salvador fut très riche en rencontres et en découvertes.
Merci à Silvia pour sa patience (malheureusement nous ne sommes pas rencontrées), un grand merci à Luana pour son accueil et sa gentillesse. Et la maison est magnifique, la vue est à couper le souffle.
Muchas gracias Silvia y Luana por su amabilidad y paciencia.
La casa es increible!!! Cerca de la playa et del centro.
Thank you so much silvia and Luana for your patience and kindness.
Home is just amazing and sunset really inclusive!!
I had wonderful time in your house.
Thanks Silvia and Luana for a wonderful experience! It was so nice to have Luana wait for me even though I arrived later than expected, and you both gave me so much help and made me feel very welcome.
The breakfast and the sea views, not to mention the monkeys in the trees, were fabulous! I'd recommend you to anyone - unless they have a problem with steep hills and steps - particularly if they are genuinely interested in learning about Bahia, its people and its culture.
Let's keep in touch, and know that you have a friend in Yorkshire, UK :)
Hôte très réactive pour répondre à vos questions et pour vous donner de bons conseils . Silvia est très sympathique.
La résidence possède une magnifique vue sur le littoral.
Seul bémol sur le confort, il y avait des problèmes dans les sanitaires, il fallait en utiliser d'autre.
Cette résidence convient bien à des personnes ouvertes d'esprit et sociable qui aiment un minimum sociabiliser avec d'autres personnes.
I had an amazing Time at sylvias place. Situated in a quiet small favela, i always felt safe. The inhabitants of the favela are very friendly. Despite the fact i dont speak any portuguese i could exchange smiles and conversations in spanish with the people of the favela. The room was simple but with enough comfort. The view from the room and the living room was just absolutely stunning!!!! Amazing view!!! I strongly recommend this location.
