This beautiful 5 bedroom farm for 12 is located 5 km from Villa de Leyva on the road to Arcabuco via the hippodrome. The area is known as “Sabana Alta”. Casa del Lago is situated on 5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens including orchids, native plants and fruit trees, as well as a small, fresh water stream that runs through the property. One of the great attractions here is the lake which sits just in front of the house and adds an element of tranquility to the garden. There are lounge chairs for sunbathing and a BBQ and solarium lakeside for outdoor lunches and relaxation.
The house itself offers a very large double living room with fireplace, aptly furnished and decorated for casual entertaining. Adjacent, is the dining room which can seat 20 people very comfortably, and just down the stairs is the solarium which seats 8 people. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as a T.V. room with futon which may be used as an additional bedroom.
Other elements of interest at Casa del Lago are:
Horses for cabalgatas (additional)
A rooftop “mirador” for sunbathing
