Location: La Villa Bahia hotel is nestled in the heart of Pelourinho, a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the historic quarter of Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.
How to get here: Fly to Salvador (SSA) in Bahia and take a road transfer to the center of Pelourinho for about 25-45 min, depending on the traffic.
Structure: La Villa Bahia is comprised of two adjoining 17th and 18th century colonial homes, remnants of the Portuguese era. Overlooking the colourful facades of the district, the 17 rooms have been carefully renovated to preserve their original spirit. The result is enticing: an authentic colonial atmosphere, enhanced by two garden courtyards, a refreshing plunge pool and a panoramic terrace. The rooms are split on 3 floors, overlooking either the Baroque Church of Sao Francisco or the Villa’s leafy courtyards. Each room reflects a particular period in Bahia’s history through decoration. African, Asian and European styles blend together to create a local soul. The rooms are luminous and serenely romantic, with high ceilings, four-poster beds, wooden floorboards, and occasional tangy colour. All the rooms on the top floor feature small private terraces.
Why staying here: La Villa Bahia is one of the most charming colonial-style hotels in Brazil. Given its location, it is easy to walk around to most of the beautiful sites in Salvador. Really beautiful and cozy with great service.
