A 2 hour drive from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil lies Buzios, the charming fishing town that has become a vacation destination in the 1960s. Ever since then the region has been completely converted with beach homes, condos, Villas and a abundance of pousadas popping up in droves, supplying a healthy construction market and fluid real estate market.
There are many spectacular stand-alone houses with most of the fresh development being inside closed condominiums, while apartments & rio penthouses being fairly few in number. Seasonal exotic vacation rentals make up a sizeable quantity of the real estate activity and for that reason the investment possibilities tend to be intriguing.
Popular with Brazilians and world-wide vacationers alike, the variety of wonderful beaches are what makes Buzios a popular tourist attraction as well as its closeness to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil makes it the best place for a 2nd house to relax at on the week-ends. As a result, many homes are shut down for the off season and the roads of several areas may become deserted, but this can prove a welcome respite from the peak season madness that takes over this small beach town.
The main commercial center is based on Rua das Pedras and is packed with shops, fine restaurants and plenty of night life amusement for everyone. Nearby Praia dos Ossos provides some delightful old fisherman’s homes reconditioned to their past glory (mainly now seasonal rental properties). Further toward the end of the peninsula is situated the favorite Joao Fernandes district, mostly consisting of pousadas and hotels but still there are several private homes available.
Houses embrace the mountains of Buzios, giving fine views across the peninsula and out to the Atlantic. Praia Ferradura’s environment provide the most significant regions with houses available for purchase and the real-estate choices here are everywhere. Starting at R$500,000, you can get a simple residence with lots of land and also be perfectly located near the beach and the center of town.
