When you arrive at Fabula Lake House you will discover a real Patagonian lifestyle. We welcome you into a beautifully crafted home that is thoughtfully built in harmony with the magic of the surrounding environment.
You will enjoy a comfortable stay in a spacious room with a private bathroom and a spectacular view of the lake and the Andes mountains.
Fable of the 7 Lakes House has an inviting living room and a quiet library, both with open fireplaces. The kitchen is spacious and the adjacent dining room opens up to the awe inspiring great outdoors. In each room you will find the unique touch of handcrafted decorations that compliment the wood and stone style of the home.
The outside bar and dining area leads to the garden where hammocks hang in the shade overlooking the beach. There is plenty of space in the garden for relaxation and activities such as yoga, tai chi and other practices.
The neighborhood is friendly and quiet, yet only 30 minutes away from the center of Bariloche by car. Near the house you will also find a little store and bakery. A few minutes walk and you can take the bus out of the peninsula into town.
Outdoor activities like kayaking, trekking, mountain biking, skiing, horseback riding, etc. are all close-by and can be organized on request. Homemade meals are optional. Laundry service is available and we keep a variety of beverages on stock offered at local prices.
My wife Miriam and I enjoy sharing our home and life with friends and guests. We are looking forward to hosting you.
What a wonderful experience staying with Walter and his family at their incredibly lovely home. Their home is truly stunning with masterful detail, character and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.
Walter and Miriam were incredibly generous hosts offering help with anything I needed from arranging a rental car to be delivered to me at Fabula to a delicious cappuccino to start each day. Walter is an incredible chef; having stayed at Fabula for 5 days I ate almost every meal there.
If traveling to Bariloche I would highly recommend Fabula and I will most certainly be back.
Una casa hermosa con gente linda!! Walter hizo todo para que mi estadía fuera perfecta. El desayuno en frente del lago fue inolvidable. Realmente, todo perfecto! Ya quiero volver!
I love this place. The family, all 5 of them are so open, generous, free spirited.
Then comes the house, amazing and awesome. Certainly something an nature loving person will admire for the design and open space to comfortable and spacous rooms/suites. The suite is larger than our last place we lived in, in Toronto.
Than comes the view, either from the house or out in the kayak they have to use, its stunning...oh, and the sunsets...what other fantastic word can i use to describe it....nope, none is sufficient to describe how beautiful they were.
We are certainly planning to go back for longer next time, much longer.
Walter y Miriam y chicas, muchas gracias por todo, Mucho besos!!
Staying with Walter and his family was so great I returned for a second stay. The home is truly amazing, the lake is beautiful, food amazing, and I felt warmly welcomed and at home for my entire stay. Thank you so much for having me and I look forward to returning soon.
If you ever have the chance to stay with Walter and his beautiful family I highly recommend it. The home that Walter built is one of the most beautiful I have ever lived in, and sits on the lakeside.
I was very comfortable and happy to be their guest.
Walter is also an excellent chef, as well as a kind and wonderful friend, husband and father.
Very beautiful time, and was very grateful for all their kindness and hospitality. I am definitely hoping to return.
Maravillosa estadía en la casa de Walter y Miriam! Hermoso el paisaje, la casa es como su nombre, de cuentos. La habitación es enorme, con ventanas que dan al lago, todo impecable! La mejor de las ondas para solucionar cualquier problema, me fueron a buscar a la terminal, me llevaron a pasear en canoa, me dejaron cocinar con ellos, un placer estar en esa casa. La mejor elección que pude haber hecho. Gracias familia Rodigari!
This IS the best place on airbnb ( : Walter and Miriam could charge 10 times of what they are charging and it would still be more than worth it.
If you are coming to Bariloche , don't miss this place and it might actually be worth going to Bariloche, if not Argentina for!
The house lives up to its name ...it's called "La Fabula" -the fairytale house and when I arrived I felt like entering into a dream castle...inclusive of a queens/kings-room ( :. Walter build the house himself and it is done with originality, creativity and love. There are so many beautiful details-a feast for the eye...and 5 star comfort! When I wake up in the morning I have to pinch myself , so I know im not still dreaming: that is how beautiful it is! The setting is super..lakeviews..private beach..flowergarden, hammocks, a huge lovely dog! It really is paradise.
Walter-an Italian chef who will also cook for you or let you share the family meals for an extremly economic price!! and his family are just lovely and I felt immediatly welcome and like a guest from the first moment. they really host from the heart and include the guests in their life, spoiling one with pick ups and drive to's and kajak tours and great conversations.
It's a great place to socialise with Walter, his family and friends, other guests..and whenever one needs time alone there is enough room to withdraw. And even though its social at night its superquiet (as the house is so big) -something which is very important to me.The vibe of the house is relaxed, warm and easygoing...the perfect place for ..anything really.
For me it is an absolut dream come true (I planned to stay 1 week and will now stay up to 3-as long as I can really ( :)-so I literally couldn't recommend it highly enough!
If you have the opportunity: stay there!!
Words can not describe Walter´s dream home, his generosity and his hospitality!
The house is amazing, it is a work of art that he and his family designed and built, and anyone who gets to share it with them is really lucky. It is in an amazing part of Bariloche, you are at the beach within five seconds, a perfect spot for walking, swimming, kayaking, relaxing.. The house is so comfortable and beautiful that sometimes you just don´t want to leave - I only left because I had to.. The house is so big that you can have your privacy, and feel like you are on your own, or join in the family life. Walter and his wife make great food, and will offer and share it with you, they pick you up and drop you off when and where needed, they will just do so much for you and make you so at home, they will make your stay unforgettable, and when you leave (if ever :) you will be leaving with tears in your eyes, but happy!
Stay at Walter´s, this is THE BEST PLACE on Airbnb..
Words can't express how much I enjoyed my one month stay with Walter, Miriam, their three lovely daughters and adorable St Bernard, Sasha.
This wonderful family welcomed me into their beautiful home right on the banks of Nahuel Huapi, where I stayed in the gorgeous en-suite guest room, waking up to views of sunrise over the lake every morning and lulled to sleep by birdsong and cool breezes.
Walter picked me up from the bus station in person, lent me his bicycle to help me to get around and invited me on an incredible four-day horse-riding trail with his friends. I also shared many memorable and absolutely delicious meals with the family. (Walter and Miriam make the most amazing food you could ever hope to eat.)
This is definitely the place to stay if you are a relaxed person and want somewhere to soak up the beauty of the countryside around Bariloche as well as experiencing life in a fun, happy and loveable Argentinian family.
