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, 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…
And all the urban infrastructure just up the hill.
airport bus and a lot of busses stop on our square Largo da Vitoria (5 min. walk)

Un lugar único que bordea lo surrealista incluso. Inmejorable ubicación en Salvador, espacio y vistas para departir , compartir, contemplar...viajeros que se encuentran con la hospitalidad de Sylvia, Celia, Alda y cada persona que llega a habitar la casa. Mixtura de cultura, arte, compromiso, comunidad, proyectos y un punto neurálgico para experienciar Salvador de Bahia a ritmo amable, divagado, intimo y s la vez social y sociable. Villa Brandao, la gente, La casa y el lugar tienen un espíritu particular que una vez se experiencia difícilmente se puede olvidar. Experiencia de una riqueza inolvidable.
This is a wonderful house full of culture and character! Situated in a quaint "communidade" where everyone is very friendly. The most beautiful views in Salvador accross the bay. One location not to be missed.... The room is spacious with ensuite bathroom and even a hammock to enjoy! The garden has tropical plants and even 2 turtles!
My wife and I had a great time staying with Sylvia and the other guests, the directions were good and you really need to ask Sylvia about taking a boat for some snorkeling. Also the breakfasts were fresh and delicious.
This Favella really is a nice place to stay with great views and the price is great for the area, the location is right between the historic center and a decent shopping district. Stay here and have fun!
We spent 1 week in Silvia'home with my boyfriend.
There is a very nice view of the bay from the house, you will appreciate to go on common rooms when you Wake up and see the sun and the sea from the huge terrace.
The house is in a quiet favela, but you need to have good legs to go there, because the street is very steep!!
There were no hot water in the house ; weird at the beginning but it's hot in Salvador so it's ok!
We had a good time there, and we met many people during our staying.
Thanks Silvia, and thanks Luana!
I had an amazing stay in Silvia's house, and ended up staying two week more than anticipated. I was doing an academic work during my visit and the relaxed and extremely beautiful environment of the house and the lovely community was perfect for that. The other people in the house where great, social and considerate at the same time. Silvia was abroad during my stay, but my communication with her was not only impeccable, in terms of my needs as an airbnb guest, but also warm and personal. I hope I will get the chance to come back for another stay, and I hope to meet you there, Silvia, or somewhere else in the world. Please give a big hug to my housemates from me.
Thanks Silvia and Celia, we really enjoy our stay in your house, the view and the sunset on the bay is something difficult to forget.
The favela is safe and is 10 minutes walking from the barra beach , 20-25 from old city center.
We would like also to say hello to all the people we met in the house.
Silvia and Celia also drive us around, and we had a great experience, thanks.
