Alison's pousada review
Pousada Fazendinha Buzios was a wonderful find and at the same time a complete surprise- a new guesthouse where you feel as if you are in the middle of the country whilst only being a few miles from the bustle of Rua das Pedras and the innumerable beaches of Buzios. There are 6 beautiful spacious chalets to choose from here set in 30,000 sq metres of parkland, complete with fruit trees, stables and small equestrian centre. All the chalets have different colour schemes with varandas leading out to the gardens and all are equipped with excellent king sized beds, ceiling fans, air conditioning, fridge TV and telephone, En-suite shower rooms come complete with special "fazendinha" amenities, fluffy white towels and bathrobes.
Bring/rent a car if you want to explore; if you don't feel like going out though you'll find plenty to occupy you actually in the pousada. Theres a good sized pool, massage room, large lounge with board games and cable TV plus a restaurant serving light meals and snacks to accompany the extensive winelist. Regrettably I wasn't around long enough to take proper advantage of everything on offer, but it's always best to leave wishing you didn't have to. I'll definitely be back!
Armacao de Búzios, or Búzios as it is more commonly known is not exactly a hidden place. A beautiful hilly peninsula with 23 beaches located only a few hours drive from Rio this is somewhere everyone has heard of and Carioca high society was already coming here way before French actress Brigitte Bardot made the place famous in the 1960s.
The Pousada Fazendinha Buzios is actually 10kms from the action of the main drag of Rua das Pedras and 6 kms from the famous beach of Geribá, and if this is what you are looking for there are lots of pousadas nearer by to recommend. Where this pousada wins is in offering the comfort and space of your own chalet in the tranquility of the countryside whilst still being near to all the famous beaches. Bring or rent a car and it's a perfect combination!
