The place was clean, located in a fun neighborhood (and safe) by the water. But more important Stephanie, the owner, and the staff made us feel welcome and helped at every turn. They helped find places to eat, suggested places to go and how to get there, overall they were great. It made Salvador a place to remember a place... More

My 4 friends and I stayed at the Villa Francaise during carnaval in Salvador. The rooms were very clean and quiet, the breakfast buffet fresh and delicious, and the owners always friendly and helpful. We always felt comfortable and very safe. WiFi is included. The location was safe, a 7 minute walk from beaches, and close to the Barra Shopping... More

Very good location. It is just a few blocks to the beach and about 15 minutes to Pelourinho or to Itapoa beach by bus. Also there is many good restaurants and bars and a huge Shooping Center nearby Very friendly people. Cafe da manha is quite good. Nathalie and Stephanie are very lovely persons.

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
