The house is located at Avenida Beiramar 259, in the middle part of the new promenade, in front of the beach with a marvellous panorama of the bay and the islands. There are 12 apartments, mostly occupied for continuous residence by local Brazilian middle class couples .
The house has been entirely renovated during the last five years and offers a beautiful small garden in the front with nice green space to relax.
Ribeira is a traditional town district of Salvador de Bahia, facing the inner side of the bay „bahia“-just under the hill of Bonfim, well protected from the rougher atlantic winds and waves- with a certain Mediterranean Flair. The inner part has still the narrow neighbourhoods with the “real Brazilian life”- mean lots of handcrafting, little shops, tiny apartments and thousands of kids. The outer part is a recently well restored beachfront promenade with cafes, restaurants, dance halls and nice squares, well equipped sport and training areas on the beach, where you also can rent boats and sailing equipments.
There is a big “Centro de Cultura” with a weekend fair and evening life concerts featuring Brazilian artists. Of course you find all shopping possibilities from the small bakery to the big shopping mall and even a farmer market. And of course near the Bus terminal all famous Ice Cream parlors! The white sanded beach offers safe swimming and bathing also for children.
Ribeira is 40 min from the airport and 20 min from the City Center- well connected by a frequent bus system, taxis and “ubers”. An “uber” transfer from the airport costs average 16 USD.
