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 relatively cheap (but nice) restaurants. The historical center is easily reachable by public transport.
The rooms are simple, but very clean and everybody in the pousada is helpful and make a point to help you if you need something. Breakfeasts were perfect.
Mind the fact that some rooms upstairs to do not have large windows (that could bother some persons). Ask maybe the rooms located downstairs. Note that no rooms have special views (the pousada is located in a street surrounded with walls).
We did enjoy our stay here and we can only advice the place.
