Sitio Sao Francisco is a very beautiful little paradise pousada owned by a very lovely and helpful couple from Argentina. The rooms are beautifully furnished and contain everything you need. The whole pousada is really nicely decorated - you can tell that the owners really love this place and want their guests to feel home, too. The beach is right... More

Sitio Sao Francisco is a Pousada, i.e, a sort of a B&B Brazilian style, situated 20 minutes walk to the Arraial d'Ajuda's village and half hour (including a ferry cross) to Porto Seguro. We, my husband and I planned our holiday early 2013. Our 2 daughters were going to a few of the World Cup games, and were coming from... More

They stored my luggage for 2 weeks while i took a motorbike trip to Caraiva and could not have been more helpful arranging transport etc. the pousada itself is a wonderful... More

What a place. The owners (yogis and avid design lovers) are friendly and wonderfully warm. A special place to come retreat fro summer. The resident dog is a sweetheart too. The rooms are simple and clean with creative elements giving it a personal touch that no big resort could ever have. The breakfasts are ample and the beach loungers plenty!... More

I've been to Sitio Sao Francisco last week for a one week holiday last week. I chose this pousada trusting the reviews on TripAdvisor and - believe me - all positive comments are totally true. Excelent location, by the seashore and with public transport you can take in front of the pousada taking you to almost every interesting place in... More

A lovely small hotel with a relaxing ambiance. Its an ideal place to chillout, paint, chat, throw dinner parties. Each individual chalet style room or appartment has been individually decorated for the personal touch. The owners Mile and Teo and their staff offered fantastic, warm and friendly service. Highly recommend a stay there. Watch out for their new web site... More

I've been to "Sitio" twice, first time was at X-mas 2007 and the 2nd time at X-mas and New Year 2008/2009. After the first time I knew I'll be back for a longer stay and that's how I'm feeling at the moment as well. As you might know, Arraial is known of its parties for young people, especially at New...
