Where you’ll be

Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

The Santo Antonio neighborhood has changed!

The gentrification of the neighborhood started just a few years ago. Not less than 15 charming pousadas are born in the street in 10 years !

Why ?

1: The nearby Pelourinho: The beautiful Pelourinho is very close; less than 10 minutes walk. One goes for a drink or dinner ... but the Pelourinho is busy and noisy, sleep is a nightmare Our street is asquiet at night as it can be in Salvador ...
2: The beauty of the street and the view: In an authentic Bahian district, a quality of life forgotten in the rest of the city.
3: Security: The neighborhood is one of the safest Salvador.

Close to home, you'll love visiting Santo Antonio's fort, world center of capoeira and if you are lucky attend a Samba on the square (50 meters). The baroque church Boquerão (150 meters) is worth a visit for amators. You can enjoy an "arumadinho" or a "carne da sol" or just have a couple of beers at the Cruz de Pasqual (200 meters) unless you prefer the terrace of my neighbours : Ulysses Restauranty (famous in the city for it's classical bahian food)

Hello, my name is Xavier, I'm french, and I'm 58 years old . I study history in france and then business and administration in Berkley (USA) Paris ( France) and Tokyo ( Japan). After working 10 years as an executive , I decided to change my life because i was allways waiting for hollydays to travel... Then I started travelling and travelling till I met my wife Yanelis who is cuban.We mooved to salvador 15 years ago. We have a nice 16 years old son Arthur.

I would love to be able to receive you home, because I love to share what I know about Bahia, but I now leave 400 kilometers away, in a paradise called vale do Capão located in the nice Chapada Diamantina a montagnous area. I recommend you to have a stay there, and I will be happy to receive you in my Mountain's house.

Because I'm living far away with my son, my wife, yanelis, will be the one who will receive you and help you home. As in '' hotel California'' song, it seems that she's program to receive … ( she love it so much...) She speaks French, Spanish and Portuguese and understand a little bit of English. She grown up in Cuba and her vision of salvador and the bahian society is really interesting. By the way, she knows very well Salvador and will be very pleased to share her knowledge with you.

I'll allways keep in touch with you by mail if you need

I wish you a wonderfull stay in our beautiful house

best regards Xavier

Bom dia, meu nome é Xavier, sou frances e tenho 58 anos . Estudei história na França e, depois administração de empresas em Berkley (EUA), Paris (França) e Tóquio (Japão). Depois de trabalhar 10 anos como executivo, decidi mudar a minha vida, porque eu estava sempre esperando as ferias para viajar ... Então eu comecei a viajar e viajar até que eu conheci a minha esposa Yanelis .Nós mudamos pra Salvador há 16 anos. Temos um filho lindo de 16 anos : Arthur.

Eu adoraria recebê-lo em casa, porque eu gosto de compartilhar o que eu sei sobre a Bahia , infelizmente, eu estou morando agora a 400 quilômetros de distância, em um paraíso chamado vale do Caão, na Chapada Diamantina . Eu tambem recebo hospedes no Capão.

Por estar vivendo longe , minha esposa, Yanelis, será a pessoa que vai recebê-lo e ajudá-lo na casa. Como na canção '' Hotel California'' , parece que ela está programada para receber ... (ela reelmente gosta ...) Ela fala Francês, Espanhol e Português e entende um pouco de Inglês. Ela cresceu em Cuba e sua visão de Salvador e da sociedade baiana é realmente interessante. Ela conhece muito bem Salvador e vai ficar muito contente de compartilhar o seu conhecimento com você.

Vou manter contato com você por e-mail depois da reserva e tentar ajuda-lo si for necessario.

Desejo-lhe uma maravilhosa estadia em nossa bela casa

Abraços Xavier


Bonjour, Je m'apelle Xavier, j'ai 58 anset je suis français. J'ai fait une fac d'hitoire à Lyon puis un MBA à Berkeley (USA) Paris (France) et Tokyo (Japon). Après avoir travaillé 10 ans en tant que cadre supérieur, j'ai décidé de changer de vie parce que j'en avais marre d'attendre les vacances pour voyager ... J'ai commencé à voyager et voyager jusqu'à ce que je rencontre ma femme Yanelis à Cuba. Nous avons enménagé à Salvador il ya 17ans. Nous avons un beau garçon de 16 ans : Arthur

J'aimerais pouvoir vous recevoir à la maison, parce que j'aime partager ce que je sais à propos de Bahia, mais malheureusement, je vis maintenant à 400 kilomètres, dans un petit paradis appelé ''Vale do Capão'' situé dans la Chapada Diamantina une zone de montagnes. Je vous recommande un séjour dans la Chaada diamantina ou je peux vous recevoir dans ma maison de montagne

Ma femme, Yanelis vous recevra et vous aidera durant votre séjour à la maison. Comme dans la chanson '' hôtel California'' : ' she is program to receive'' (elle aime tellement cela...) Elle parle français, espagnol et portugais et comprends quelques mots d'anglais. Elle a grandi à Cuba et sa vision de Salvador et de la société bahianaise est vraiment intéressante. Par ailleurs, elle connait très bien Salvador et sera très heureuse de partager son savoir avec vous.

Je resterais, de toute façon en contact avec vous par mail si vous avez besoin d'aide.

Je vous souhaite un merveilleux séjour dans notre belle maison

cordialement xavier
