Deep Blue Yonder
Practice stillness at these waterside homes…
A true immersion into nature, these eco-conscious cabin rentals sit along the shores of the ethereal Bacalar Lake, dubbed the “Lake of Seven Colors.” Find serenity upon its floating platforms, a quick and fragrant amble down from the property’s lush gardens.
Can you hear the gentle lapping of the waves at the shore’s edge? You might need to get a little closer to this boutique villa in Nicaragua, and sit in the shade of the Masaya and Mombacho volcanoes. Ah, there it is.
This raw and creative space designed by Federico Restrepo is like living inside a Slim Aarons photograph. Mosey on down to the dock and soak in views of “La Piedra,” a 1,263 ft tall monolith, a striking contrast among the green mountains.
Kinship to the great outdoors is at its fullest here, perched above stunning lake views. On 21 acres, there is a fragrant herb garden, Finnish sauna, and a natural swimming pool (in addition to the massive one, just 280 meters below).
We love a small luxury hotel that’s all about the details. This one shares the hillside with howler monkeys and exotic birds, and gives you a privileged perch above the water: poolside, with thousands of tiny squares of sapphire, just one design decision that has made all the difference.
This home that is situated on the shores of Lake Atitlan was designed and built with a primary focus on individual attention and wellness, drawing from Ayurvedic practices. Tip: Swimming is a great practice for the Pitta life force.
One of the most captivating and coveted lakes in the world, there are many reasons why the A-list flocks here. As if a sweeping view of it from your window at Pescallo Lake Como weren’t enough, this trio of apartments has a shared garden with privileged access to the marvelous, marvelous water.
We’re all for glamping, especially when you have your own little compound for family and friends, and a restaurant, bar, pool and yoga deck. This lovely property also has views of Lake Nicaragua and the Mombacho volcano. It makes you one with the wild, without really roughing it at all.
Gorgeous views of the Umbrian countryside are complimentary with your stay at this luxury villa that is situated in the middle of an oak forest overlooking Lake Trasimeno. May we suggest taking them in, in the saltwater pool, reminiscent itself of a forest lake itself?
