The gorgeous town of Buzios just outside Rio de Janeiro was transformed into the ‘St Tropez of Brazil’ following the arrival of Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s and still has the reputation as a weekend getaway for well heeled Cariocas. For us here at Dehouche there is only one place to stay, and that is Pousada Casas Brancas.
Tucked away at the end of the cobbled streets of ‘Rua das Pedras’ and ‘Orla Bardot’ this beachside retreat oozes sophistication boasting its own nearby beach club and two bars where everyone wants to hang out in the summer months.
With more than 24 beaches to explore, this resort really does have something for everyone and the lovely team at Casas Brancas making it even more special by giving every person who books a holiday to Buzios this December travelling between May and July, a complimentary bottle of champagne. We cannot think of anything better than watching the sunset on our balcony over Praia Armacao after a day at the beach. Get away from all the snow and fly south for the winter with Dehouche.
