About Poul Winther Knudsen

Two owners:

Poul Winther; X-ray engineering manager.

Jan Borsing; sound engineer.

Both from Aarhus, Denmark

Poul Winther Knudsen purchased this house in 2005

Why Poul Winther Knudsen chose Búzios

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.

Great location, great view

  • 4 of 5

It was a great location and a great view. Fully furnished and well maintained. The only concern was the kitchen - it would have benefitted from having the core staple things like oil, water, salt and pepper, coffee, etc.

Great time!

Worry free!

  • 5 of 5

I can not express how amazing this home is and how wonderful and inviting the manager Rasmus and his family were. He answered all my emails and concerns promptly before we arrived and even graciously waited all day for 4 days for our missing luggage to arrive so we could enjoy Buzios! He was always giving us great advice! It was nice being up on the hill and getting around was easy with a buggy or car. We felt so safe in the gated villas that our two young boys could run around and explore on their own around the property.When my family talks about returning to Brazil they tell me we have to stay here again and I agree 100%. The views are breathtaking! So much that we would not watch TV and just sit and watch the horizon. We could stay there all day relaxing. I loved having a washer and the spacious house gave our big family privacy! The beds were comfortable and we were given plenty of sheets and towels at no extra cost. The house was clean and beautiful. I am so happy to have found this jewel!

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!

New Zealand

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 !

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.

Other Activities: kite surfing

Golf: Championship golf course close by
