Villa Luz is a luxurious modern house built on three levels over an incline with some of the most stunning sea views in Buzios with a distinctly Mediterranean feel coming from the natural light and sounds or birdsong and the waves. The house is blissfully peaceful for Buzios.
Villa Luz was built in 2006 and has five bedrooms, enough for up to 10 people, and is set on the top of a hill in Buzios at the point where the neck of Ferradura Bay opens to the Atlantic. The beach is less than 1km from the house down a sloping track and can be walked in under 10 minutes.
The views from the house are powerful and dramatic looking out towards the ocean whilst in the other direction there are gentle hills covered in smart villas that slope down to the yellow sands of the horse-shoe shaped bay.
Each of the villa’s 5 bedrooms command breathtaking natural ocean views while the large double height living room faces towards the infinity pool which appears to empty into the bay toward amazing sunsets.
Brazilian ‘ipe’ wood and local ‘Sao Tome’ stone provide richness and warmth against the clean white surfaces which dapple and change with the light. Each suite has a private balcony facing the ocean.
The heart of the home is a 2 level 1,700 sq ft. living, dining and entertaining area where one wall is made entirely of glass and looks out towards the pool and the bay on one side and to the ocean on the other. An open staircase descends from the main entrance to the large sofas resting on highly polished hardwood flooring.
On the mezzanine there is a 14 seat home-theatre which has a large flat screen TV with DVD player and surround sound to create a wonderful home cinema experience for a house full of guests.
The swimming pool is 14m x 4 m with 8 sun beds and pool towels surrounded by a sandstone tiled patio, dotted with mini palm trees. In addition there is a cane-shaded gazebo which contains an open barbeque and a table for up to 8 diners, ideal for pool lunches.
Included in the cost of the rental are a maid, maintenance man and local cook from 8am-7pm as well as an English speaking concierge for 4 hours a day. Additionally babysitters, extra maids / evening cover may be provided for extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.
A welcome hamper of food and drinks is included in the cost of the rental.
