This oceanfront apartment facing the Barra Lighthouse and the All Saints Bay will make your stay in Salvador unforgettable. You will have some of the most desirable views in town, especially at sunset, where people gather at the Lighthouse to see the sun go down. The place is so close to the water that you can hear the sound of the waves from your bed!!

Interaction with Guests
We are based in Barra to help you with everything you need to make your stay perfect.
The Barra neighborhood is home to Salvador’s carnaval and some great beaches . Barra is also one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Salvador. Barra's busy waterfront were once three colonial forts. The most impressive today is Bahia's oldest, the polygonal Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra, built in 1598. Known simply as "Farol da Barra" for its lighthouse, the fort houses a small nautical museum. Stay for sunset - Salvador's peninsula is the only place in Brazil where the sun sets over the ocean. Our apartments are just across the street from the Farol.
Barra is a residential area in the city center. It is a safe and very convenient location, where you have everything you may need in less than two blocks from the apartments: bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, malls, historical buildings, laundromats, etc. To go from Barra to the old town (Pelourinho) or to the beaches north of town, the bus stop is right at the Praiaville building entrance.
Other Things to Note
