Located in the north-eastern part of the country of Brazil is the vibrant state of Bahia. A Bahia holiday not only gives you a taste of what traditional Brazilian life is like, it is also crammed full of things to see and do. A Bahia holiday rental villa provides all of the mod-cons you would expect in a first-class hotel with the advantage of having a really laid-back, relaxed atmosphere.
A Bahia holiday provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the Great Outdoors and there is a myriad of activities just waiting for you to enjoy. Amongst the activities available on a Bahia holiday are swimming, fishing, diving, surfing, sailing, kayaking, paragliding, tennis, golf, walking, cycling, trekking, horse riding, mountain biking and dune buggying. With such a diverse range of scenery, a Bahia holiday is also ideal for those who like to indulge in a spot of photography or painting.
No Bahia holiday would be complete without a visit to the capital city of Salvador. The city has a host of great cultural and historic attractions including the wonderful Museum de Arte Sacra. The museum is small in size but boasts a wonderful collection of Sacra art, which is thought to be one of the largest collections in the whole of Brazil. Whilst in the city of Salvador it is also recommended that you visit the historical district of Pelhourino. This district is one of the oldest to be found in Salvador and was noted as one of the areas that was inhabited by the very rich. Pelhourino was left to fall into ruin until approximately 600 buildings in the district were restored to their former glory. Visitors will discover that there are often street carnivals and colourful parties held throughout the year in Pelhourino.
If you are now thinking of reserving a wonderful Bahia holiday rental villa then you can expect to enjoy a wonderful Tropical climate which means that the temperature is pretty much constant the whole year round. The warmer daytime temperatures will be as high as 30°C and on cooler days the temperature barely falls below 23°C during the day. The annual rainfall amount for the state is quite high at 50 inches.
Travellers on a Bahia holiday will most likely arrive at Deputado Luis Eduardo Magalhaes International Airport (SSA), which is located in Salvador de Bahia, the capital city of the state. Several airlines offer cheap, regular flights to the city including BMI, KLM, Air Portugal and Air Europa. Passengers can depart from various UK airports including Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW), Manchester (MAN), Glasgow (GLA) and Leeds (LBA).
