The Villa Bahia, a pousada set in the heart of Salvadors historical center, is unique and elegant. Set in two magnificent mansions with colonial flair, the pousada offers a true Brazilian experience of culture and food.
Villa Bahia is nestled in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic quarter of Salvador. The Villa is comprised of two adjoining 17th and 18th century colonial homes, which are remnants of the Portuguese era. Overlooking the colorful facades of the district, the pousada features 17 rooms which have been carefully renovated to preserve their original spirit. The result is enticing: an authentic colonial atmosphere which is enhanced by two garden courtyards, a refreshing plunge pool and a panoramic terrace.
Villa Bahia also features an excellent restaurant which adapts French techniques to local ingredients, creating numerous combinations of mouth-watering meals.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
