The history of Blue Lake House is a tale of transformation and revival that spans over several decades.

Blue Lake House, a picturesque villa overlooking Castelo de Bode Lake, had its origins in 1986, when it was initially constructed by Mr. Cristovão. This charming residence is situated just above the former village of Castanheira, which, unfortunately, was submerged by the construction of a dam in the 1950s.

As the new owners, we recognised the potential of this unique location and embarked on an ambitious journey of renovation and enhancement.

The goal was to provide a haven where guests could immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, find tranquilly, and indulge in various water sports. This vision became a reality, and in 2020, we opened its doors to the world.
