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 up the hill)
