A unique home located in the heart of Colombia, in the middle of the most amazing mountains with spectacular views. It’s an ideal place to rest and experience the true Colombia at your leisure. The home is situated at 1,815 metres above sea level in a town called Guateque at distance of 112 kilometres (70 mi) from BOGOTA. . Guateque was officially founded on the 28th January 1636, made famous by the Emerald mines and the fireworks.
“The place is very cute. Since we arrived we fell in love. The town is near. The facilities are very well maintained. It is a perfect space to disconnect and to spend as a couple. Natalia was always very aware of everything. Thank you very much and we will definitely return to this place.”
La casa abre sus puertas a los visitantes que quieran maravillarse con su fauna y flora y descansar bajo el arrullo del río que la recorre. Es una zona ideal para hacer senderismo, caminatas, avistamiento de aves y gozar de la cultura boyacense. La casa posee espacios abiertos e iluminados. El clima es cálido, sin embargo, el río proporciona una agradable brisa. Se encuentra en una de las regiones históricas pero poco turísticas de Boyocá, el Valle de Tenza.
“Tenza and its surroundings are a truly hidden gem!!! Some people might be put off by the unpaved road, however, to us that was one of the greatest attractions of the trip. The panoramic views on the road from el Sisga to Tenza are astonishing! There is no need for a 4x4, we managed with a small car. Just be patient and drive slowly. Allow yourself three hours for the trip from Bogota and enjoy the ride through this secluded part of Colombia! The house is quite unique, as one can see in the pictures. We particularly enjoyed the sound of the river very much at night. The price is good if you are a big party when compared to the prices of the local hotel in town. Graciela who assisted us was extremely kind and offered great suggestions of places to visit nearby. I took my bicycle and enjoyed very much exploring the roads over the rugged terrain from the house. There is a nice stone path from the house to the main square of Tenza, which is one of the prettiest towns we have seen in Boyaca. There are nice shops where you can buy handcrafts and souvenirs and enjoy a nice coffee with the locals.”
Just three hours by car from Bogota city, you will find Chivor, a dam lake surrounded by waterfalls, tropical lush vegetation and our secluded house set in the most exuberant, paradisiac scenery. In the middle of the Andean Colombian region of Boyaca, you can rent CHIVOR LAKEHOUSE to get away and explore nature at it’s best. Perfect spot for water sports (Kite Surf, Wind Surf, Water Skying, Kayaking, Paddleboard, tc).
“The place is wonderful, not only the calm and tranquility of the whole environment, but the house amenities have such a good distribution and a great view. Juan Pablo (the house butler) was really kind with us. We were a group of 5 adventure bikes and decided to take the dirt road (difficult) instead of the boat (much more comfortable) that takes you directly into the house (recommended). Mauricio the host must hate us as he insisted in us not doing this :D. Hehe it was a really difficult road as it's raining season but worth it at the end. Anyways, great place, great view, really comfortable and a great host! Haha next time we will take the boat... probably.”
