Pousada de Charme Outre Mer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We've been to the Pousada de Charme Outre Mer in november 2012 and it was just amazing. Hervé and Claudia are wonderful people and the rooms are very nice and comfortable. The Pousada is located near to the towncenter (about 10 min walk) and the different beaches. If we'll go back to Buzios we would again choose this Pousada.

My sweetheart and I spent three nights at Outre Mer in November, 2012, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is simply beautiful and provides the ideal B&B setting - very private rooms, which are spacious, comfortable, immaculately appointed and cared for, and truly wonderful outdoor spaces including a pool and associated shaded outdoor lounging area where you can lay down, or enjoy your own little dinner by candlelight. In the garden, bananas are growing and in a few years there will be mangos ripening as well. For breakfast each morning we took in a wonderful view and listened to songbirds while testing Claudia's selections of home made jams and muffins (different kind each day), along with a selection of breads, cheese, ham, and eggs to order, and of course, one of Brazil's trademarks - fresh fruit juice (again, a different kind each day). B&B's rely on a foundation of great hosts and are the main draw for those of us who prefer them. Herve and Claudia are without doubt ideal hosts - they love people and are interested in their guests adventures and willing to share their own stories when asked. Conversation over breakfast was always a pleasure. Hope to see you again, Herve and Claudia!

The location is perfect if you want to stay a little bit away from all the hustle and bustle, but close enough to stroll to the main strip for dinner. Claudia and Herve are perfect hosts and and their attention to detail was amazing, from the way they had decorated the rooms to the way breakfast was presented. Their home is beautiful and has gorgeous views over Ferradura bay. Breakfast was delicious, including homemade jams and cakes and fruit salad. Outre-mer was peaceful, stylish, and their hospitalilty was exceptional. Perfect for us as a couple looking to chill out after a few days in Rio.

Before the winter really started in Europe we made a tour to Brazil. We spend a full week in Buzios and were extremely lucky that we had picked the B&B Pousada de Charme Outre Mer.
A perfect place to relax and enjoy the weather and the rich nature. The room are very elegant decorated with a look into the garden and onto a small pool. The host couple Claudia and Herve are very friendly and helpful with everything you might want.
We can only recommend this place.

The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful - e.g. Herve offered to pick us up at the bus station at midnight when we arrived and dropped us off on our way back! Our room (Asia) was beautiful, very romantic and full of special touches. We had a lot of privacy and a beautiful view. Breakfast was also great. We're certainly returning.
Location is not the best - Ferradura is not Buzios' most beautiful beach and the centre is a 15 min walk away, but the pousada itself makes it all worth it.

My wife and I recently stayed at Outre Mer for 3 nights in July, and we both agree that it is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The breakfast served each morning was wonderful and filling, and the decor and location of the pousada were really great. We felt like we were staying at a resort. The view from the breakfast area on the upper floor to the ocean was amazing. Besides the view, the grounds and the pool area are in immaculate condition. The attention to detail at this pousada is remarkable. It is all really great value for the money.

But the best part of the Outre Mer experience is the hosts. Herve and Claudia are amazing. They are so friendly and informative (great advice on things to do and places to eat). When one of our flights was cancelled later on in our South American trip, Herve helped me immensely, letting me use his phone for almost an hour while I worked things out, and keeping me entertained while I was on hold with conversation about Buzios and information about Brazil. He also ended up arranging and picking up my bus tickets to Rio. He and his wife are truly amazing people.

Lastly, don't be concerned that this pousada is not directly in the town centre. It is only about a 10 minute walk, and the area is completely safe so do not have any reservations about making this walk even at night. And plus, the location is very close to Ferradura Beach, which was lovely.

All in all, if you book with Claudia and Herve, you will not regret it. Enjoy.

Room Tip: We had the Africa room, but I'm guessing all the rooms are nice.

We chose Buzios as the 'sun, sea and sand' part of our first trip to South America, and it didn't disappoint even in its winter. Outre Mer also lives up to its reputation, Claudia and Herve are truly charming and very helpful, always willing to share their extensive local knowledge and offer advice and suggestions; their home is lovely too, full of artefacts and treasures gathered from around the world. We stayed in the Europa suite - and loved it for comfort, space, simplicity and cleanliness, there's also a fabulous view out to the beach beyond the garden. The pousada is in a quiet spot outside the town, yet within walking distance of tempting shops, bustling bars and lots of restaurants that line the cobbled streets of the centre. Ferradura beach, kilometres of golden sand, is only 5 minutes away and it's easy to travel along the coast using the hop on minibuses that ply the main highway (every couple of minutes and only 2 R$) to explore the many other beaches...we loved tiny, quiet Joao Fernandinho and had the best barbied fish ever...If you appreciate quiet, comfort, great views and friendly yet unobtrusive hosts Outre Mer is an excellent choice.
