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.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
