About Poul Winther

Two owners:

Poul Winther; X-ray engineering manager.

Jan Borsing; sound engineer.

Both from Aarhus, Denmark

Poul Winther purchased this house in 2005

Why Poul Winther chose Armação

With other relations in Brazil we were looking to buy in the country. When we finally found Búzios there was no doubt that it was the place. Not just one of the most beautiful locations in Brazil but often voted among the ten most beautiful places on the planet! The town itself is clean, safe and absolutely adorable and just big enough to have everything you'll ever need. There are so many fantastic beaches close by that I haven't even seen all of them yet. We chose João Fernandes because it was developed later than some of the other popular areas which means that the regulations require more land per sq. ft. of construction. That way the area is much less crowded than e.g. Ferradura and on top our place is right in front of the hill with no other buildings in front and nothing to disturb the spectacular views.

What makes this house unique

Views, views, views! Just astounding panoramic views from everywhere in this property combined beautiful style and spacious layout in a quiet, remote area close to beach and down town.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little uncertain what to expect but just driving through the gate was almost jaw dropping. The location of the beautiful property is like something out of a dream and realizing that every room has the same fantastic and ever changing views was almost to good to be true for city people like us. The villa itself was spacious, stylish and clean, and the manager was very friendly and accommodating, and for one he arranged a very nice boat trip.

The entire stay was soothing for the soul in the very quiet location and Búzios was fantastic with very nice shops and restaurants. Of course the kids liked the beaches and all the water activities the most and it was tough to see them when we had to leave.

This is a definite recommendation and all thumbs up!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had spent the first 10 days of our trip in Rio for crazy fun Carnival and couldn't wait to relax and bask in the sun in beautiful Buzios. This house is truly wonderful. The views are "to die for" and our vacation was everything we dreamed it could be, and more! Alejandro, the house manager was a delight and such a great help. He arranged to have buggies at the house for us when we arrived and was very accommodating. The house is very large and was extremely comfortable for the 6 of us (all in our early 30s). And just like the description notes, every single room and/or bedroom in the house has wonderful views. Not one is better than the other. It was such a relaxing setting. And did I mention the views...breathtaking! The pool area is killer, with even better views (if that's even possible). You feel like you are on top of the world. The condo complex was very peaceful and quiet with lush green foliage all around. I do recommend renting a car or buggie to get around because the house is on a very steep hill, hence the gorgeous views. Plus, there are so many beautiful beaches to visit. We love the beach life! Booking our stay was seamless and easy. Jan, the owner always responded quickly and was very nice. Buzios is a great place to visit and I cannot wait to return. We would definitely book this house again!

Views and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples holidaying from New Zealand. The communication when originally booking was excellent with all questions answered promptly and fully. We were given contact details for the local agent and he met us on the road coming into Buzios and escorted us to the Villa. His English was excellent and he was able to help us with local knowledge.

The Villa was perfect for us with enough room for 2 couples to have privacy. A well equpped kitchen and laundry were welcome and the views and pool area were both greatl.

You could not get the lovely views without being on a hill so the walk up and down to the beaches/ shops/ restaurants certainly provided some good exercise but we hired a beach buggy for a couple of days and stocked up on groceries etc while we had it.

The villa was clean and tidy with everything that had been promised provided. We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

Buzios itself was fantastic - if there was a wind blowing there was always a sheltered beach, the beachside restaurants were amazing and the locals friendly.

Our only disappoitment was that Buzios is a bit dificult to access from NZ on a regular basis !

We stayed at Casa Vista Azul on a recent trip to Buzios. Couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house was beautiful, located in the best part of the island, right next to the best beaches. Alejandro, the house manager, was incredibly attentive and thoughtful; as was the house's owner during communication prior to our stay. We strongly recommend this house, and are already planning a second trip back.

Just wonderful!

Our family in December and I must say that this is a lot of bang for your buck! The location is perfect - just a mile from down town and with all the beaches scattered all around the area but still very secluded. When we first entered the place we could not believe how much we had gotten for so little.

Great place, the views are everywhere and just unreal!

Can't wait to go back! All thumbs up.

heavely views!!

  • 4 of 5


Just returned fron Brazil.

We had an amazing time!!!!

My first impression of the villa was wow!!

The lounge had the most amazing views and with the large windows open you felt like the outside had come in!.....

I just have one or two suggestions to make this the ideal holiday!......1. The exterior is looking a little tired. It could do with a paint job.....2. There was never enough hot water for all of us to have warm shower! 3, There are alot of bugs!!! and we felt someone should have 'sprayed' to ensure we weren't bothered by them. Instead we spent money on RAID. 4 There are no English stations on the TV! 5 We were the only residents at the time yet there was only four sun loungers at the poolside and ALL of them were broken. We did mention this to the manager but said as it was a communal pool they all had to agree to but more. However the house was big enough for them to store some for the tennents use only! This of course meant we could not all stay at the pool!! That was very disappointing.6 The pool was freezing!! heating would have been a good idea. 7 When we arrived the pool was full of debris and the following day I cleaned as much as I could. Someone did come and clean it the next day!!!! 8 We had arranged to leave the house at noon. Cleaner turned up at 8am!!!! The manager did have 'words' with them about it and I appreciate they have to prepare for the next group but it felt uncomfortable and we felt under pressure then to leave asap!!

Having said all that the holiday experience overall was very good and I would recommend it to my friends especially if these small problems were addressed.

Owner's Response: We are glad the villa could still stun even with the missing exterior paint job. The sun is very hard on the sheet white exterior and this needs to be done often. We apologize for the lack of hot water. Apparantly the water heater had a short circuit that has now been fixed. We are working on the pool side furniture as we speak but I don't understand why the pool would need heating. I haven't ever heard of a heated pool in Brazil before, however, it should always be kept clean and we have since had a firm word with the worker. About the early morning cleaning - that is simply a misunderstanding that should not have to happen.

Take a well deserved break and spoil yourself in gorgeous Brazilian surroundings. Located on the top of the South Atlantic peninsula Búzios, that since Brigitte Bardot made it famous in the seventies has been the scene for numerous wonderful holiday experiences. Originally a home for European pirates; the Búzios of today is so famous for its rustic charm, architectural harmony and unique scenery that it is voted one of the ten most beautiful places in the world.
