Anyone who has stayed in one of the Quadrado’s typical houses knows that it’s a special experience. One just have to open the window to see local life go by without haste and full of little surprises. Be it the kids playing ball freely, the capoeiristas making their special show, the guests at a wedding close to the iconic little church, and the horses that pass slowly: all together.
Creating this connection with this magical village of Bahia is one of the privileges of villa 22, one of those old fisherman’s houses of the region, which have just been restored. Also known as Dona Olava – the name of its original owner – the house has been renovated but has retained the rustic essence that gives charm to the destination.
There are two suites, a kitchen open to the living room, facing the Quadrado, and in the back, a terrace overlooking the cliffs and the sea. When the occasion calls for more privacy, it is the perfect place to have an aperitif, read a book and watch the local life happen without haste. To top it off, an experienced maid prepares a typical breakfast – tapioca, lots of fruits and muffin included – every morning.
The same standard, neighboring villa 23 can be rented together for larger groups.
