Farol da Barra lighthouse

Car: Not Necessary

We are in Barra, a wonderful, safe neighborhood in Salvador, with a panoramic view from our terrace to the Atlantic Ocean, and the historical fort of Santo Antonio and the first lighthouse of Brazil, the oldest in South America (1698), and the city's most famous icon, the Farol da Barra. At the fort (built in 1582), there is a restaurant, a bar and Nautical Museum of Bahia and a wonderful view of the bay of Bahia dos Todos Os Santos, All Saints Bay.

We are on the beachfront of the Farol da Barra , and within minutes walk of a second famous beach city, Porto da Barra, where Tomé de Sousa, first Governor-General of Brazil, landed in 1549, founding the city of São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos.

The neighborhood of Barra is in a special location, at the tip of the peninsula that is the city of Salvador. Now part of the traditional circuit of Carnival called Barra-Ondina.

It is a predominantly residential neighborhood, upper class, although it does now host a number of small businesses, many banks - Santander, Itaú, Caixa Economica, HSBC, Banco do Brasil, Bradesco, as well as pharmacies, medical facilities, supermarkets, greengrocers, delicatessens, butchers, fishmongers, a creperie, and tea and coffee houses, and even a house of empadas, delicious Brazilian pies, plus many bars and restaurants along the waterfront.

The area boasts three famous nightclubs of the city - Off Club, Europa Bar and the Groove Bar.

There are many restaurants with a variety of cuisines: Bahian, seafood, vegetarian, organic cuisine, Arabic, French, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Temakaria, Churrasco, Steakhouse, Pizza, International Buffet style, Cafeterias, even McDonalds, Subway, and Bob 's Burgers. As well as delicious ice cream and cake and sweets shops.

You can see and hear the New Year's Eve Party from our terrace, and there's nothing better than watching the New Year's Eve fireworks with family on our private terrace to bring great joy, peace and prosperity. The Lighthouse New Year shows are among the most famous and sought after New Year's Eve parties in the world, with performances by the great names of Brazilian music, performed in front of one of the most touristic icons of Salvador.

Sun, sand and lots of fun are part of the New Year in Salvador. The capital of Bahia is the most sought destination in the northeast for tourists, who seek all the joy and magic to start the New Year. The hospitality and happiness of the Baianan people enchants every visitor.

And our apartment is located a few minutes by taxi or bus from the main sights such as the Historic Center, the Pelourinho, the Mercado Modelo, and The Lacerda Elevator among others, with a host of shops, historic churches, beautiful streets, and lots of music from Bahia.

There are many taxis ranks and bus stops close to our building, and in a few minutes by taxi or bus, you can be in the bars, clubs or restaurants of the nearby bohemian neighborhood of the Red River, Rio Vermelho.

There are always new restaurants opening there, a Spanish Taparia, and a Peruvian ceviche, and several other restaurants. It also has lots of live music, and clubs and discos where young Brazilian locals go to drink, dance and flirt, such as Pedra da Sereia, Dubliners Pub, San Sebastian, Padaria Bar, Revolver Bar, Post Tudo, Twist Bar, Casa da Mãe, Visca Bar, Borracharia Club, Sunshine Bar, Botequim São Jorge, Varanda do Teatro SESI, Red River Café, 30 Segundos Bar, Seu Boteco, Portela Bar, Bar do Nando, Blue House, Commons Studio Bar, Café & Cognac, Ciranda Café, and many more...

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Languages: Português, English & Spanish. We're Jon and Rosana and we fell in love with Salvador many years ago. The warm sea, beautiful beaches, and spectacular sunsets, are just part of what we love about this historical city. Rosana is a fully qualified Shiatsu masseuse, Jon a graphic designer, living and working in Bahia after many years in London.

Why the Owner Chose Barra, Salvador - State of Bahia, Brazil:
This really is a wonderful penthouse with a fantastic view of the ocean and the nearby island of Itaparica, in a safe, friendly touristic neighbourhood, served by two of the best city beaches in Salvador, and with good travel links to other parts of the city, state and many surrounding islands.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The terrace is enormous, the width of two apartments, 30 metres (66 feet). And the view spans more than 180 degrees of sea and beautiful skies, and as far as the neighbouring island of Itaparica. You have to experience it to believe it. And the open plan design in wrap around steel and glass with floors in old Brazilian hardwood makes you feel really a part of the amazing nature on offer in Brazil.
