A rustic and recently renovated Raza villa is located right on the beach at Praia Rasa with amazing sea-views and a beautiful tropical garden. A 2012 Tripadvisor Award winning property!
A true hideaway and a perfect place for a family, group of friends or an artist soul seeking for peace. This old idyllic fishing village called Búzios is now a bustling and popular holiday resort with easy access from Rio de Janeiro (2 hrs by car).
Our villa is nearly 200m2. We offer two suites and one bedroom and perfect for max 10 persons. We have a spacious living-dining room, a TV-room (with SKY-cable) and a fireplace-room. The entire villa is decorated with antiques and artworks from Asia, Africa and South-America.
The kitchen is fully equipped.
The terrace is the perfect place to relax in a hammock, sip a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of breaking waves. Occasionally parrots pass by the villa and at the end of Rasa beach you may spot sea-turtles
We have a caretaker couple who live at their own private house at our gated compound. They take care of the garden, our chicken and birds, our watch dog and most importantly, our quests, if needed. Olivia cooks, cleans and washes clothes and makes perfect caipirinha drinks. Her service is optional and provided at extra modest cost payable directly to her.
Our closest supermarket is at the centre of Rasa, some 2 minutes by car. To Manguinhos it takes some 10 minutes and to the historical centre of Búzios some 15 minutes. Minivans and buses pass by the villa and taxis are available.
Búzios 18-hole golf-course is just 5 minutes away.
We recommend to rent a car while in Búzios as there are 22 amazing beaches waiting to be explored. Of course some quests prefer to relax at the villa and enjoy the sea, sand and sun.
The villa is rented on self catering basis.
