Check out the following villages below? What can you observe?! Yup, all these pictures depicted Switzerland!
Switzerland has long been the favorite playground of the privileged. Here, the pristine paradise of majestic pines carries with it the lure of great adventures, while the delightful flower-decked pocket villages that languidly drape down Alpine mountainsides, and the sight of snow-topped peaks that glisten like diamonds in the gentle European sun thrill the soul.
Distant though the pleasures of the Swiss Alps may seem, not far from the bustling metropolis that we call Manila is a village nesting amidst the cool winds and green hills of Tagaytay inspired by the beauty and charm that belong to Switzerland. A village laden with the chalets that call to memory summers relishing the biting cold and unspoiled air of Mont Blanc and Pilatus, and garlanded with imposing yet elegant pine trees that dance with each teasing breeze and whisper lullabies when the night wind blows.
Named from the continuous interweaving of the winds off Tagaytay and Laguna de Bay, this village is called “Crosswinds,” and it was carved into 100 exquisite hectares of Tagaytay to bring to Filipinos and their families the pleasures and beauty of a first-class Swiss luxury resort.
Crosswinds is a prime development nestled along Calamba Road in Tagaytay City by Brittany – the upscale brand of the country’s premier homebuilder, Vista Land. It is a breezy five minutes from the popular weekend spot, the Tagaytay Picnic Grove, and a scenic seven minutes from the Tagaytay Rotunda that is the gateway to an immense slew of popular restaurants, hotels and casinos. This alone makes a home in Crosswinds an ideal investment, as it is the perfect place to retire, vacation or drop by on weekends.
Crosswinds boasts of being the only pine estate in the country, now with over 20,000 magnificent pine trees reaching for the gentle blue Tagaytay skies and lending their heady scent to the air that jackets the development.There is also a Christmas village, bringing the joys and air of that favorite holiday to families 365 days of every year.
Beyond the delightful collection of chalet-inspired homes, Crosswinds is a residential-cum-luxury resort complex that comes complete with a swimming pool, beautifully landscaped walking trails and jogging paths, a village store offering everything from daily necessities to unique curiosities, and pocket or “peak” parks that proffer the most divinely panoramic views. The community also comes replete with things to do and adventures to be had.
Making the most of the Swiss inspiration, seven prime hectares of the Crosswinds property have become a delightful re-creation of the quaint and cozy Swiss mountain towns in the exquisitely delightful yet alluringly luxurious “Alpine Village.”
THE ALPINE VILLAGE:
Offering Filipinos the Unparalleled Luxury of a Swiss Resort
Inspired by the architecture, exclusivity and allure of the likes of Gstaad and Chamonix, Crosswinds’ Alpine Village will be a cluster of residential and commercial buildings allowing for both an escape to the solitude of one’s dream vacation home, while offering shopping, dining and other leisure options unlike any in the country.
The commercial area will be a collection of charming specialty shops, quaint cafés, delightfully unique restaurants, and an organic market offering the freshest produce from Cavite, Batangas and the rest of the country. Naturally, with Tagaytay fast becoming the wedding capital of the Philippines, a lovely Hilltop Chapel is rising on one of the property’s highest peaks – allowing for an exceptional view of the city’s incredible sunset as well as the rest of the amazing surroundings.
Girding the commercial plaza, a mere stone’s throw away, will stand three luxurious mid-rise condominiums whose architecture and woodwork will be entirely reminiscent of the chalets that peak teasingly from the powder-fine snow of the Swiss Alps. Currently, One Alpine Tower is being offered as the first residential area in the Alpine Village. An eight-storey beauty, the chalet will house only 18 units per floor to allow for greater room, wonderful breathing space and more privacy. This month, the Alpine Village celebrated the launch of the One Alpine Tower’s model unit with a two-day event that made full use of Tagaytay’s beguiling weather and the property’s delightful offerings.
One Alpine Tower’s Model Unit Now Ready to be Seen
The opening of the One Alpine Tower’s One-bedroom model unit took over the breezy morning with a morning mass and blessing that made perfect use of the solemn, cold and lovely Tagaytay weather. The ribbon-cutting ceremony opened the model-unit’s doors at last, and a filling and delectable lunch closed the affair.
