Recently spent three nights here and couldn't have been happier. The owner was welcoming and gave us a tour when we arrived.

Each room is its own mini-house containing bedroom and bathroom. Shower and bathroom were large. Bedroom had a king converted from two twins and A/C and fan.

Free breakfast was very good and personally served by the owners. They have a small stretch of beach the property is on, but there's much more to the neighboring bars and restaurants that are accessible by beach. The property has some deck chairs in a relaxing area just in front of the beach and is great for just hanging.

Free parking on premises and they give you a key to get in and out of the area as you wish. There were a couple nearby restaurants but I recommend heading to downtown Arraial d'Ajuda to get far better food.

Couldn't have been happier here. Would definitely return!

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!! :-)
