Destination guide

Made famous by Brigitte Bardot

Armacao dos Buzios was famously visited by the French screen icon Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s, when it was nothing more than an idyllic little fishing village. Fast forward to today, and Buzios has been transformed into one of the fashionable towns in the country. Looking more like the French Riviera, the town is awash with independent boutiques, beautiful white-washed colonial architecture and chic eateries. Surrounded by beaches and dotted with beautiful Armacao dos Buzios vacation rentals, it's a place that won't disappoint anyone looking for a place to relax and soak up the rays.

Things to do

Elegant architecture in Armacao dos Buzios

It may be tempting to spend your days splashing around in the ocean, but there is much to see if you feel inclined. Just down the road from Armacao dos Buzios vacation rentals is the Igreja de Santana, a white-washed 18th-century chapel set above the Praia dos Ossos. Even for those who aren't religious, the beautiful structure is well worth a visit. You shouldn't miss seeing the statue of Brigitte Bardot along the waterfront, in honor of the woman who made the town famous, or the shopping and attractions that lie on the cobbled, shady streets of Rua das Pedras.


Sail by schooner in Armacao dos Buzios

If you can drag yourself away from the beach or your Armacao dos Buzios vacation rental, there is plenty to do and see. Head down to the harbor and you can join one of the daily schooner trips which sail along the green coastline, stopping en route for swimming. If you are PADI certified, explore the rich underwater world on one of scuba diving adventures. Back on dry land, you can swing your clubs on the 18-hole golf course all year-round and if you visit in late July the sounds of music fill the cobbled streets during the annual Jazz Festival.


Something for all seasons

Other than March, when the weather can get a little wet, the rest of the year enjoys sunny, bright and hot days. When you visit will very much depend on your interests and budget. The high season is in December over Christmas and New Year. If you travel during this time, you'll need to book up your vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. Between November and February and June to July, the Brazilian schools are on holiday and it can get a little busy. Outside these months, the weather can be just as good, and the beaches wonderfully quiet and peaceful.
