Located just two hours north of Rio de Janeiro in the stunning coastal town of Buzios, Villa Paraiso, a majestic five bedroom, 10,000 square foot villa, is a place of serenity in the presence of the sparkling ocean, warm breezes, and the colourful pulse of Brazil. Designed to rest gently on the existing terrain, allowing for the least disruption to the natural landscape, this home captures spectacular views from its vantage point overlooking the best beach in Buzios. The streamlined white edifice forms rest in relaxing horizontal planes, embellished with Brazilian 'ipe' wood, local 'sao tome' stone, which provide a richness and a warmth. They literally dapple and change with the light. Villa Paraiso is ideal for families, corporate events and retreats, weddings and honeymoons - South American style. All of the main living areas of the villa are spacious and well appointed with only the best furnishings; elegant, modern, and exceedingly comfortable, each piece was carefully selected to blend with the open design concept of the villa - graceful contemporary architecture comprised of a restrained palette of natural local materials, which in turn provide a dramatic backdrop to the phenomenal natural setting.
The heart of the home is a two level, 1,700 square foot living, dining, and entertaining area. The living areas and a bar also share the modern space with a fourteen seat home theatre, located on the mezzanine. Sliding glass doors allow for the living area to be completely opened up to the garden and the private swimming pool. An outdoor covered dining terrace and barbeque grill make al fresco meals all the more enticing. The large double height living room faces towards the infinity edge swimming pool, which appears to empty into the bay, facing superlative sunsets. A private Jacuzzi is a welcomed alternative to the pool. Air-conditioning is not located in the main living areas of the home, with the exception of the bedroom suites, as the cool, refreshing ocean breezes and open concept ensure guests will be naturally comfortable. The kitchen at Villa Paraiso is large and is fitted with such modern appliances as a cappuccino machine. Some of the other amenities and features to be enjoyed at Villa Paraiso include a special wine storage unit, colour 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. Each of Villa Paraiso five air-conditioned bedroom suites commands breathtaking ocean views. Each bedroom is fitted with twin beds, which may be joined to form a King bed. Each bedroom suite is, like the rest of the villa, exceedingly comfortable and spacious; each offers a private balcony facing the ocean. The bedroom suites are entered via a courtyard garden, replete with gurgling fountains and gentle waterfalls.
The staff of Villa Paraiso is comprised of a daily maid, a chef, and a gardener. An English speaking concierge can easily be arranged at an extra cost, as can additional specialized staff such as a butler and a nanny. The property is located two and a half hours by car from Rio de Janeiro International Airport and the city. Guests can travel by car from the airport to the house or Helicopter which lands five minutes from the house. Discerning guests love the ideal location, as it is close enough to the urban centre, yet removed and placed in its private, serene setting. The villa is a five minute drive from the highly sophisticated and opulent restaurants and shops of Buzio; a two minute drive or an eight minute walk from Ferradura Beach, and minutes away from at least 12 other spectacular beaches. Spa treatments, pedicures, and manicures can be arranged at the villa.
