Saint-Tropez for those who don’t know is an internationally renowned seaside resort on the French Riviera. To this day, it remains star-studded and often frequented by European and American jet setters. Similarly, Brazil has its own Saint-Tropez in the guise of Armação dos Búzios.
Armação dos Búzios has become the favorite beach getaway of the wealthy elite. Much like its French counterpart, it was once just a small fishing village. It achieved international prominence after Brigitte Bardot visited the place in 1964.
