Villa Paraiso Offers Brazilian Sex Appeal
Villa Paraiso is paradise indeed, located just two hours north of Rio de Janeiro in the stunning coastal town of Buzios.
Originally settled by European pirates and slave traders, this sleepy fishing village became a hot destination when discovered by Brigitte Bardot in 1964. As alluring as the French sex kitten herself, Buzios seduces with its 23 beaches and a peninsula location that accesses at once calm clear waters on the west coast and wild waters on the east coast, attracting surfers and other watersport aficionados. Super shopping, superb restaurants and a sizzling nightlife round out its sex appeal.
The majestic five-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot Villa Paraiso is serenity itself. It overlooks a gorgeous beach and the sparkling ocean, whose soft breezes caress visitors and cool all rooms. The streamlined white modern structure embraces minimalism while offering space, comfort and luxury indulgences. Warm, rich embellishments are provided by the judicious use of Brazilian ‘ipe’ wood and local ‘sao tome’ stone, materials that dapple in the shifting light.
Ideal for families, corporate events and retreats, weddings and honeymoons, this Brazil luxury villa boasts an airy, open-concept design. The living areas are spacious and well appointed with the best furnishings – elegant, modern and exceedingly comfortable, each piece is carefully selected to work together and blend with the design of the villa overall. Its graceful, contemporary architecture uses a restrained palette of natural local materials, providing a dramatic backdrop for the phenomenal natural setting.
The heart of the Brazilian luxury villa is a two-level, 1,700-square-foot living, dining, and entertaining area, including a 14-seat home theatre located on the mezzanine.
Sliding glass doors open the interior completely to the garden and the private swimming pool. Alfresco meals can be enjoyed on the outdoor covered dining terrace with barbecue grill.
The double-height living room faces toward the infinity-edge swimming pool, which falls away to the bay and stunning sunset views. The kitchen at Villa Paraiso is large and state of the art. Other amenities at Villa Paraiso include a special wine storage unit, color satellite television, wireless internet connection, an iPod docking station, an indoor SONOS music system, a guest office with a laptop computer and printer, and a gymnasium with Life Step equipment.
A private dune buggy is provided for guests to use at nearby Ferradura Beach, with its horseshoe-shaped bay and calm, crystal-clear water, served by numerous picturesque bars serving cool drinks and “Buzios-style” meals.
Each of Villa Paraiso five air-conditioned bedroom suites commands breathtaking ocean views. They feature twin beds, which may be joined to form Kings, private balconies and entrances through a courtyard garden, complete with gurgling fountains and gentle waterfalls.
To pamper guests, the villa has a staff that includes a daily maid, a chef and a gardener. An English-speaking concierge can easily be arranged, as can additional specialized staff, such as a butler and a nanny, and a variety of spa treatments, pedicures and manicures.
