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 in front and perfect for swimming, since there are only little waves. Right next to the pousada are several beach bars where you can have lunch or buy some nice cocktails to enjoy while you are relaxing at the beach. But since this pousada is a little bit outside of the center of Arraial, there are not many people on the beach and you can enjoy the tranquility and beauty of Bahia. Getting to the center of Arraial d'Ajuda however is really easy because the mini-busses stop right in front and a ticket to the center is only 2,50 Reais.(the drive is about 5-10 minutes).
We really enjoyed staying at Sitio Sao Francisco and would definitely recommend this place!
Thanks for having us in your little paradise :)

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 Berlin and Australia with their partners and planned to join us in this pousada some of the time. Also, I have cousins in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro as well as a dear friend. So I booked 5 rooms for 2 weeks not knowing who or how many would turn up. As it happened, many came to the pousada and we all had the whole place to ourselves(no other guests were there, as it was low season) and we were delighted with how relaxed and friendly the whole placed was. Thank you Jacira, Silvana and Diana for making us feel so much at ease. Anything we asked, they provided.

Room tip: If you are a family, they have rooms which have a kitchenette and extra beds. We had 2 of those rooms and they were very useful to our group

Wonderful Carnaval!

Excellent place for couple and also for a family, beautiful place in front of the beach many restaurants options nearby, they even can serve you in the hostel, excellent location to take a car to the city, nicely decorated, all rooms have winter garden in the shower which makes the bath a very pleasant experience, the feeling of the place is the best, we had an amazing and relaxing time, there is also options for the people who wants to party. We took our cat and he was also very well treated. The owners and the workers are very sympathetic. I would go back.

Stayed here in January and cannot recommend the place highly enough. Roxy and Mileva went out of their way, literally, to make sure i was happy and enjoying myself. 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 place to stay, very comfortable, right on the beach with many quirky and artistic touches. Do push on to Trancoso and, especially, Caraiva which is a unique place. I hope to return!! :-)

We had the most incredible stay at Sitio Sao Francisco.. It is such a beautiful Pousada- really stylish and artistic.. every corner you look you notice another amazing artistic creation. It is right on the beach too and has some awesome chill out areas dotted around.. Our apartment was massive and so comfortable- wish we lived there! The breakfast was absolutely amazing- so interesting and ambitious.. makes toast in england seem very dull! The fruit juice was so special too.. Perhaps the best thing about the Pousada though is the wonderful people that look after you. There was nothing Roxy couldnt do for us! She was so friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived.. She sent us to the best restaurants in town, gave us films to conk out in front of and treated us like old friends even though we had only been together a few days.. Thank you so much for everything!! We will be back X
