I took some time to write a comment, as I am new in Trip Advisor and I'm not used to make any comments but...La Villa Française is one of the best location I did in my whole life and, as sales manager, travelling a lot all over the world, I am in a good position to compare. The best are... More

Very good located in a busy area but always felt safe. Our room was nice and the breakfast was excellent. The owners are French but only one of them spoke English and can help you find things to do. The kitchen is also nicely equipped. Overall a nice stay in a quite location.

We spent a few day with Stéphanie and Nathalie (the very kind owners of the Villa Française) at the end of July 2013. The pousada is not located in the historical center of the city; it is however well located in a popular, but very nice and safe, neighborhood (called Barra) very close to the city beach. A lot of...

Uma pousada excelente que fica no bairro costeiro de Barra – é um lugar ideal se você quiser passar o tempo na praia (em Salvador mesmo ou na Costa dos Coqueiros) assim como se você quiser conhecer o centro da cidade. Stéphanie e Natalie são muito simpáticas, acolhedoras e multilíngues com um bom conhecimento de Salvador e da Bahia. Além... More

We spent 3 nights in this very French pousada in a great location in Salvador. Lots of nice restaurants and bars nearby. The place is very quiet though. The room was simple but had enough space for all our luggage and was very clean. The bathroom was really tiny... Breakfast was good. I think it's a good place for young... More

We just returned from ten days in Brazil. Our trip started in Salvador, and we were pleased with our stay at La Villa Francaise. Stephanie is a wonderful host who speaks English well and is a wealth of information on the local area. Not only does she provide helpful tips on visiting Salvador, but she loves to share her insights... More

The quality and good value of this excellent, well located Pousada was highlighted when I tried to find another Pousada near by for some friends when La Villa Fancaise was full. Nothing in the area even came close! Rooms in La Villa Francaise are spotless, airy and bright; breakfast is very good and the location is excellent - (close to... More

Nathalie & Stephanie, French owners, will do everything to make your stay worth it. They are cheerful and welcoming. We stayed 3 nights and could count on their advice to know what to do in Salvador, and have directions. Rooms are simple but clean. The breakfast is excellent and the location in Barra is peaceful but also very convenient, close... More

Had a lovely stay in La Villa Francaise - can't say enough good things about the friendly and extremely helpful owners - highly recommended. Their French / English speaking ability proved very helpful to non Portuguese speakers!
