Spending a ‘Grand’ Swiss Christmas in Tagaytay

Christmas never ends at Crosswinds Tagaytay — where every day, a 130-hectare Swiss-inspired community unfolds against a backdrop of over 23,000 pine trees on gently rolling hills and the mesmerizing Tagaytay weather. Apart from a delightful Christmas Village and a Christmas shop open all year round, the place embraces an authentic experience of Swiss country living with homes patterned after the chalets of Switzerland.

Located along Brgy. Iruhin Central on Calamba Road in Tagaytay, Crosswinds may also be reached by taking the Casile Road via SLEX – Silangan Exit to cut through the holiday traffic.

A project of Brittany Corp. under Vista Land and Lifescapes group, the only pine estate south of Metro Manila offers lots, house and lot, townhomes and condominiums. Condo units ranges from 35 square meters to 209 square meters starting at a price of P6 million, with choices from studio to one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units.

The first-class luxury resort boasts of well-appointed facilities, which include a commercial complex, dubbed the Alpine Village featuring Café Voi La, Go Down Bar and Coffee Bean. CondoTel facilities are also available at the Grand Quartier, with two towers already operational. One may choose to purchase a unit as a weekend home or opt to enroll it in the CondoTel services so that one need not worry about the unit’s maintenance while it earns rental income.

Apart from the CondoTel facilities offered at the Grand Quartier, there are also banquet services and function rooms which can be rented for special occasions. The Salle Entremont and Events Lawn are perfect venues for precious moments. Soon to be included in its roster of impressive facilities are the chapel, spa and wellness services, and picnic areas.
