Casa do Lago has contemporary architecture and is literally over a lake, a real natural pool, on a small farm on the edge of the dam. 2 suites, living room with fireplace, kitchen countertop with differentiated utensils, good portable barbecue and ice machine. Beach tennis court, paddle board, four kayaks and four bikes. Large pier, beach, hammock, fixed place for fire, waterfall, trails, great reforestation, tables and outdoor benches. Wi-Fi, SmartTV and Alexa.

The space
Just 1h45 from São Paulo, the small Fazenda Banharão, on the banks of the Jaguari dam in Joanópolis, offers several experiences.
The Lake House is literally on top of a lake and not on its shore, as is often the case. It was designed by the renowned architectural office Bernardes Jacobsen, responsible for important works such as the Rio Art Museum - MAR, Fasano Hotels and several high-end homes in Brazil and abroad. It has a beautiful view of the dam on one side and the mountains on the other. It has 100 m2 indoors and about 70 m2 of deck. On the property there are other buildings, some still unfinished internally but with total privacy for guests.
The 2 suites are very large, with rain showers and gas heaters. The living room has a fireplace (a wooden bag is provided and it is important to bring alcohol gel lighter) and a kitchen countertop disguised and very well assembled with French pans Le Creuset and minibar, as well as a refrigerator with separate freezer and ice machine. The portable grill is from the American brand Weber. (*)

For those who want to rest is the ideal place. Sunbathe on one of the sun loungers of one of the largest piers in the dam, protect yourself from it under an ombrelone, or relax on a large stone slab. If you prefer the lake, lie under the umbrella on the sandy beach. There are many places to read a book, including the sound of running water, drop on the lawn or even in one of the nets by the lake, full of fish and ducks.
At the same time, it is also the ideal place for those who do not like to stay still, as there are several leisure options. Play Beach Tennis, the fashion sport, on a court next to one of the property's lakes. 4 rackets and balls are available, as well as volleyballs and soccer balls. Ride a Stand Up Paddle, in the 2 single kayaks on the main lake, which looks like a pool, or in the 2 doubles on the dam. Take a ride in one of the 4 antique bikes (but that fulfill their function !!!), swim or just float with one of the available spaguettis, a race to the concierge that is 1 km from the house, walk on one of the trails. One of them on the side of a small waterfall that leads to the dam. It is also possible to go by a road, part in the middle of the forest, with about 300 meters. Anyone who prefers, can also take the car.
A few outdoor dining options, one better than the other, starting with picnics in multiple locations. On a table on the deck of the house itself, or by the lake, next to benches and hammocks, or in the middle of a bamboo grove next to a small waterfall, a space where a stretcher can also be mounted for a relaxing massage. Just schedule in advance.
There is also the possibility of scheduling, in addition to massage, boat and horse riding, wakeboarding, skiing and sailing classes.
A unique and unforgettable experience is to rent, separately, an original space made for a dinner with a pasta, fondue or raclette.
Walking through reforestation with about 65,000 trees of 200 native species, passing through pastures with dairy cattle, is a good pastime. And those who like to get up early can follow the milking of the cows in a small rustic corral.
An unmissable program is to enjoy a fire, already set up waiting for you, sitting in one of the comfortable chairs around you.
The proximity of the Serra makes the nights very cool and ceiling fans ensure comfort.
The property has some springs of drinking water that supply the house.
Wi-Fi with the best provider in the region, Smart TV to watch movies on Netflix , Claro TV with the main open channel stations and Amazon Dot (Alexa) to listen to your favorite songs.
Quality bed and bath linens from brands such as Trousseau, requiring only towels for use in the lake and dam.
And those who want to enjoy and have no work, the possibility of hiring a helper.

* Two-burner cooktop, microwave, airfryer, electric oven (pyrex up to 25x20 cm), toaster, blender, sandwich maker, Nespresso coffee maker (take your favorite capsules), regular coffee maker, popcorn maker, rice cooker, portable mixer, waffle maker, fruit juicer, electric kettle and fondue pot (remember to bring alcohol lighter gel).

Where you’ll be

Joanópolis, São Paulo, Brazil

The small town of Joanópolis, known as the "Jewel of the Mantiqueira" and self-styled "World Capital of the Werewolf" (that's right!!!), is 20 minutes away and has only 12,000 inhabitants. It has an excellent centennial supermarket called Donine and the friendly Villa Pizzeria.
For those who do not want to carry anything, just do your shopping in advance and the supermarket delivers everything on the day of your arrival at Casa do Lago.
Pizzeria da Jô, a few miles away, delivers a very tasty pizza.
Nearby you can also find the friendly Bistro Capril do Bosque. If you're just visiting a goat farm, Capril DuJoá is even closer and you can even go kayaking.
The city of Extrema, 30 minutes away, already in the state of Minas Gerais, offers radical rafting programs.
For those who enjoy a walk with unforgettable views, head to Serra do Lopo.

Sou decoradora e faço reformas, atividade que desenvolvo há cerca de dez anos. Antes disso, ajudava os amigos com isso "for fun" e por uns 30 anos trabalhei com comunicação corporativa.
As coisas que mais gosto na vida são viajar, conhecer e receber pessoas. E o Airbnb tem tudo a ver com isso!!!
Comecei a alugar a Casa do Lago meio que sem querer, por sugestão de uma amiga que disse que muita gente ia gostar de ter a experiência de ficar numa casa em cima de um lago (e não na beira!), com uma arquitetura super bacana, muito bem montada, num lugar com uma natureza para lá de especial e diversas opções de lazer. E assim foi ....
