Description

The accommodation is furnished throughout and includes two living areas and a kitchen fitted with units and including an oven, fridge freezer, microwave and larder room. There is a ground floor shower room with wash basin and wc.

The five bedrooms are all of a good size, four being furnished with a double bed whilst the fifth has three single beds. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is a second shower room on this floor. Both include a wash basin and wc. There is also a veranda at first floor level.

There is separate accommodation for a Caseiro and for a Maid. Ceiling fans are a feature in every room throughout the house. Outside are a utility room and a garage bay, large enough to accommodate three cars. Drainage is to a septic tank.

The house is set in 1300 square meters of private land that includes a large garden filled with wonderfully exotic fruit trees, a party size swimming pool with pump, a barbeque area, patio and decking area and lawn. There are garden spotlights and a secure entrance gate.

Turn left out of the property and within 30 seconds you're at a stunningly beautiful natural lagoon where you can go fishing, take a boat out or simply relax while watching the sun go down. Turn right and you're less than a minute's walk from one of the most spectacular beaches in Salvador. Known for its warm and calm waters, Praia do Flamengo is favoured by swimmers. It offers peace and tranquillity on weekdays and a great social meeting point at weekends, with many eating and drinking outlets.

The house is perfectly located to have as your holiday base. It is a short 15 minutes away from Salvador's international airport, 20 minutes from the main shopping areas and only 35 minutes from the historical old town area of Pelourinho, with its fantastic views of All Saints' Bay. It also offers easy access to many beauty spots such as Praia de Forte, Costa do Sauipe and Itaparica.

ABOUT SALVADOR AND THE BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDING AREA.

Salvador is the State of Bahia’s capital city. It was founded in 1549 and quickly became the premier city in Brazil and the second most important city in the Portuguese Empire after Lisbon. The city prospered in the 17th and 18th centuries; it was the country's major port with a significant portion of Brazil's sugar, gold and diamonds passing through it. Today, the wealth of impressive colonial architecture is evidence of the city's rich history. Well restored enclaves of the old city remain, with their cobblestone streets, colourful mansions and dozens of ornate Baroque churches.

The seductive atmosphere of this wonderfully decadent city is best soaked up on foot, within the narrow streets and markets, the best of which is the Mercado Modelo arts and crafts market. One of the city's more unusual experiences is to ride the Elevador Lacerda, an Art Deco structure housing old electric elevators that carry passengers between the port and the old historic part of the town, Pelourinho.

The only problem with Salvador's excellent beaches is that you are spoilt for choice. The range extends from calm beaches ideal for swimming such as Praia do Flamengo, to wild beaches facing the Atlantic Ocean such as Aleluia Beach, which attracts surfers. Some beaches are surrounded by coral reefs, forming natural swimming pools that are ideal for children. The beaches are the location for many of Salvador's great festivals, including the New Year festivities.

Salvador is Brazil's most Africanised state. The fusion of African and Latin cultures has given Salvador a unique brand of magic that is particularly evident at the city's many festivals. Most notable is the massive 'Carnival', usually in February, which attracts two million revellers from all over the world and easily rivals the better known Rio Carnival. If Rio is famed for its elegance and sophistication, Salvador is the opposite; it's all about the drums!

Salvador's eateries are generally easy on the pocket. Normally, you should expect to pay about 25 BRL to 50 BRL a head but you can eat out for much less. Even at the very top end, you will seldom pay more than 245 BRL a head. Make sure you try out the favourite 'Pereira' in Barra. Also, trying Salvador's traditional dish 'Moqueca' at the famous Yemanja restaurant is a must. Between snacks or meals, you can take in the many churches, museums & art galleries and shopping centres in the heart of Salvador.

There are plenty of wonderful places to visit off the beaten track. The Coconut Coast to the north of the city has the most spectacular coastline, providing stunning views of lagoons, dunes, Bahia’s finest beaches and the greens and blues of the sea itself. The road takes you to Praia do Forte, a former fishermen’s village some 82 km north of Salvador, with its delightful cosy restaurants offering delicious local dishes and boasting one of the finest beaches in Brazil.

You will see the Tamar Project, which protects the five species of sea turtles that reproduce along this coast and you will wonder at these huge ancient reptiles just in front of you. To get a superb panoramic view of the coastline, climb to the top of the nearby hill to visit the mysterious fortress of Garcia d'Ávila, then make the most of the gorgeous sunny tropical beaches below!

“A 'Caseiro' is the Brazilian equivalent of a caretaker. Manoel, my caseiro, resides on the property in his own quarters separate from the main house. Manoel has been working at the property far longer than I have owned it, i.e. more than 10 years. I would strongly recommend that any future owner retains his services as he knows everyone in the area and is a great guy. This is not a condition of sale, of course.

“Oscar Nery is my good friend and management agent in Salvador. He will be responsible for showing any prospective buyer around the house and answering any questions in relationship to the property and surrounding area.”
