How Crosswinds Is The Symbol Of Beauty In Tagaytay

 

The serenity of the mountaintops is hard to beat – you’ll know this if you’ve ever visited Tagaytay. After all, feeling the mountain mist on your skin as you walk around and enjoy the scenery is hard to beat. And if you’ve ever been there before, then you might be craving for the symbol of beauty in Tagaytay.

As great as they are to have, picturesque surroundings and complete amenities are not the only things needed to persuade the right people to live in a certain place. Everyone can have pretty surroundings and buildings all around them and still be unhappy. What one needs is a feeling of true beauty, which is exactly what Brittany has built its brand around.

The Alternative Summer Capital of the Philippines

 

Before we go further, let’s have a look at the place where we decided to set up shop: Tagaytay City, Philippines.

Tagaytay’s Rich History

The first thing that one might notice about the city is its fascinating name. Legend has it that  the name came from the shouts of a young boy repeatedly saying, “Taga, Itay!” The boy was apparently calling for his father to save them from a wild boar, his fearful cries heard throughout the mountain ranges.

As locals down below talked about the event, they started to meld together the two words “taga”, which means to cut, and “itay”, which means father, to refer to the area where the shouts were originally heard. And thus, the name Tagaytay was born.

Aside from entertaining legends, the city also has some interesting history. For instance, the mountainous area became the active hideaway and sanctuary of Filipino Revolutionaries in the year 1896 as they rebelled against Spaniard rule. It was also used by the American forces to airdrop military support as they prepared to take back Manila from the Japanese in 1945. A marker was even erected in the area to commemorate this event.

Tagaytay Today

Today, the City of Tagaytay is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country, mainly because of its proximity to Manila as well as the outstanding scenery of the Taal lake and volcano that it offers.

This in-demand city is accessible through three major roadways: the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), and the Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX). It is also accessible through the interconnecting roads of Governor’s Drive, Pala-pala Road, and Aguinaldo Highway at Dasmariñas City.

Tagaytay is a growing city, urbanizing at a rapid rate, with the luxury housing and industry sectors driving its growth.

In the future, Tagaytay is envisioned to be a highly urbanized city that will be more in touch with nature and the beauty that it offers. Rolling, grassy hills are still abundant, the air is not polluted from the stench of urban life, and vast areas of the city are still covered in towering trees. Due to this, it is the perfect nature-get away for people who want to escape the stress of the big cities.

Economic Profile

Currently, the city is in a stage of rapid development. Industrial estates, luxury houses and lots, shopping centers, and leisure facilities are being founded left and right. To keep up with the demand, the city’s upkeep is also improving.

Waste management, water supply, environmental protection, land management, and more have also been improved by the city government who is looking to attract more investors and residents. As a result, Tagaytay is a premier location of coveted luxury homes in the Philippines.

Things to Do in Tagaytay

High-class, fine-dining restaurants like Antonio’s Tagaytay, Balay Dako, and The Purple Owl offer local and national specialties. Resorts like the Anya Resort Tagaytay and Taal Vista Hotel are just some of the hotels and resorts that ring the area, offering prime views of the Taal Volcano.

With Tagaytay, you get a sense of exclusivity while still maintaining the comfort of the city at an appropriate distance. It is in this fresh, lively, and breathtaking city that Brittany decided to erect the symbol of beauty in Tagaytay: the Crosswinds.

Crosswinds Tagaytay, a true symbol of beauty in Tagaytay offers a lifestyle of exclusivity and beauty in an awe-inspiring landscape atop mountains of lush greenery and cold crisp air.

 

Crosswinds: A Symbol of Beauty in Tagaytay

 

Within this popular tourist destination, Brittany has created a residential crowning jewel – something to elevate Tagaytay from a cool place to a majestic one. This is Crosswinds Tagaytay.

Beautiful Surroundings

Crosswinds in Tagaytay is an exclusive, high-end development, and evidently so. Its luxury homes are found deep in the mountains, amidst the tall pine trees and overlooking gorgeous views.

It occupies a hundred hectares of prime real estate, conveniently placed within the city to allow easy access to the highways and nearby amenities. Although you have your little slice of mountain paradise, the convenience of modern living is nevertheless within reach.

Not only that, but the property also contains a forest of over 35,000 homegrown pine trees that ensure the freshest air. Being the only “pine estate” in the entire Philippines, something as simple as a single puff of air at Crosswinds is guaranteed to reinvigorate the spirit. Add to this the carefully maintained vegetation or the atmosphere of the deep forests created by careful landscaping and planning.

As if those weren’t enough, the development also overlooks a captivating landscape that will ingrain itself in your memory: the lush terrains of the city in the morning and the light show of life at night. Indeed, waking up and falling asleep to such panoramic sights is a luxury enjoyed only by the deserving few.

Unparalleled Convenience

But Crosswinds isn’t only for sights, smells, and sounds – it’s also top-class in terms of amenities.

Crosswinds features creature-comforts within easy reach, such as the Coffee Project Crosswinds and the Ruined Project, some of the most popular hang-outs in Tagaytay. Within the residence itself, there is a fully-equipped luxury resort called the Crosswinds Luxury Resort for vacation visits, perfect for relaxation-seeking customers. 

Finally, Crosswinds in Tagaytay boasts charming, high-quality, and unique Swiss-themed architecture. The luxury homes for sale in Crosswinds have high, gabled roofs, wide double doors, warm earthy colors, and the solid construction that characterizes traditional Swiss countryside architecture.

Although there are clear flavors of traditionalism outside, the interior sports cutting-edge modernity. Minimalist furniture blends seamlessly with the warm neutral tones of the surfaces, contemporary designs are employed so that furniture pieces will effectively utilize every inch of space, and residential units range from single-occupant and temporary stays to family villas for permanent residence.

Comfort to the Next Level in the Grand Quartier

 

If you want to take the comforts of Tagaytay to the next level, then the Grand Quartier, also known as Crosswinds Resort Suites, is part of what makes the Crosswinds a symbol of beauty in Tagaytay.

A high-rise condominium complex located in the Crosswinds community, it’s a master-planned residential area that overlooks the sweeping landscapes of Tagaytay.

Amenities

The Grand Quartier is composed of three buildings, each one with 8 residential floors and 1 amenities floor. Two of the buildings also serve as a condotel where tourists and travelers can come and go whenever they please.

On the amenities floor, one can find an infinity pool, a fully-equipped gym, a relaxing spa, and its very own coffee shop. Everything that you would normally need or want can be found in one building, leaving the outdoors for fun and exploration. 

As for the rooms, the Grand Quartier offers one or two-person accommodations. The former has a floor area of 45 square meters while the other has 67.7 square meters of space.

Each room also has a balcony that works to the Quartier’s advantage, as the establishment is located on a high mountain peak. Looking out of the balcony, even if you’re merely on the second floor, affords one a grand view of the landscape beyond. 

Design

True to its name, the residence looks grand even from outside. Its high gabled roofs give the buildings a distinct Swiss appearance. The playfully decorated fascia boards also heighten the aesthetic appeal of the roof lines. The color is true to the brand’s overall theme: warm and earthy, reflecting how intertwined Crosswinds is to nature and the earth.

Inside the condotel buildings, the rooms are decorated tastefully, with a sense of rustic, elegance, and comfortable luxury. The furniture is chosen carefully, giving off a traditional, somewhat rustic vibe that pops out of the neutral, creamy surfaces. Despite the limited space, the condotel rooms do not seem crowded at all since the entire area was wonderfully designed to exude spaciousness and movement.

The Grand Quartier is the perfect accommodation for individual occupants up to a family of three. If you fall within those categories, then the Quartier is a tasteful, classy, and supremely comfortable way to spend your weekends in Tagaytay.

Amenities

Just like The Grand Quartier, Alpine Villas also functions as a condotel, with multiple residential units and several shared spaces and amenities. But don’t be mistaken – these accommodations are exclusive and top-of-the-line. The Alpine Villas were meant to be a robust residential center straddling a growing commercial area of the Crosswinds.

Offering nothing but the best, the Alpine Villas has round-the-clock CCTV and safety patrols in all the common areas of the building, fast Wi-Fi throughout the entire buildings, and well-managed electricity and water systems.

More than that, it also features luxuries such as a clubhouse equipped with versatile function rooms, a fitness gym, a full-sized swimming pool, and even receptionists and concierge services.

Design

Built with the classic and distinctive Swiss chalet style of architecture, these towers sport projecting facades and roofs, and cozy rooms generously decorated with open-air balconies. You can choose between a 30 square meter room and a 32 square meter room at Alpine Villas. Aside from the minute area differences, both models share a lot of similarities.

For example, the color scheme gives the rooms a light and airy atmosphere, which detracts from the somewhat limited space. The furniture was designed to match the color of the background, allowing it to seamlessly blend in with the surroundings. 

As a result, the rooms don’t feel crowded at all, especially with the Crosswinds’ distinctive balconies. No matter the size of the room you have, you get to enjoy the relaxing outdoors as much as you can. If you are alone or with one or two friends and would like to experience luxury, you can enjoy Tagaytay at the Alpine Villas.

Amenities

Lausanne occupies an area of 24 hectares right within Tagaytay Crosswinds. It is soon to become a mixed-use area, with 6 enclaves that may soon be the home of more luxury homes, adventure zones, and activity areas. The area is a vast expanse that sits on the side of a hill, which just also happens to overlook grandiose panoramas such as Manila Bay, Laguna de Bay, and the rolling hills of Tagaytay itself.

Although the specifics are not yet released to the public, it has been planned that Lausanne may have future plans to contain pools, hiking, ATV, and mountain bike trails, hanging pavilions, and even playgrounds and parks.

Design

Lausanne may not have any establishments yet, but they have a lot of high-value lots for sale. These lots offer ideal locations for luxury homes, with the vista surrounding the location, its proximity to daily necessities, and the soon-to-be established activity area right within the community, anyone would be lucky to build their home on the grounds of Lausanne.
