"The pousada is in a great location, close to two of the city's best beaches. It has comfortable rooms,
friendly staff, and a great breakfast served until noon".
(Read the full article @ The Guardian Travel Guide Dec 2013)

As featured in "Five of the best Budget beach pousadas in Bahia, Brazil"  The Observer, December 2013

Set right in the heart of Barra, just a minute from the beach, this exquisite residential house has been transformed by loving owners into a comfortable, modern, pristine guesthouse for discerning travellers.

Barra has some of the finest beaches in Salvador and is ideally positioned for visiting the  Pelourinho (historic centre). There are lots of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. Public transport is very good with buses to every part of the city and taxis on every corner.
Best location for Carnaval and New Year: Barra is one of the two main Carnaval routes in the city and the pousada is just around the corner from the Farol da Barra (lighthouse) which is the centre of the Carnaval activities. Part of Salvador's New Year celebrations also take place at Farol da Barra so we are also ideally located for this unforgettable event.

We can arrange airport pickup by taxi for R$100.

If arriving at the bus station either take a taxi outside (approx R$30) or cross over the footbridge to the Iguatemi Shopping Center. Take a Praca da Se (via Farol da Barra) bus for R$3. It takes about 45 mins depending on traffic.
