Introducing the Terraces at Crosswinds by Brittany.

The land here rolls as gracefully as the winds that cross and play off Taal Lake and Laguna de Bay. At night, the skies are carpeted with stars that play hide and seek with the shifting mist. During the day, the view of a tiny volcano that sleeps on an island in the center of a pristine lake takes one’s breath away. The air up here is clean, rich and fragrant – scented by pine, tropical flowers, and the fruits the city is loved for.

Yet, Tagaytay is as much an adventurer’s paradise, as it is a nature lover’s. It is a place for thrills, as much as it is a quiet escape. As the country’s second summer capital because of its cool and comfortable weather, Tagaytay offers a selection of theme parks, zip lines, bike trails, picnic grounds, horse-back riding, kayaking, as well as treks to the top of the volcano.

But Tagaytay still has more to offer. It has become a foodie’s haven, a plant-lover’s idyll, as well as a spa city. Perhaps this is why it is also the country’s favorite weekend getaway and the preferred escape for the many Metro Manilans who crave a refuge from the city’s stress, noise, and pollution.

Perhaps, this is also why Brittany – Vista Land’s luxury real estate arm that builds homes for the high-end market – has chosen to expand and create a second development beside its rather popular Swiss-themed village, Crosswinds. It is because so many Filipino families would love to have a sanctuary of their own in Tagaytay that The Terraces at Crosswinds was born.

Cozily ensconced where a gentle fog likes to blanket a spectacular rolling terrain, and the air fills up with the scent of pine and cool winds, is Brittany’s prime leisure development, Crosswinds. Teasing travelers from Tagaytay’s sleepy hillsides and winding roads, Crosswinds is a Swiss-inspired community beckoning from 100 marvelous hectares enticingly bedecked with over 23,000 lofty pine trees.

Contiguous to this bewitching community, and just as envisioned, will rise The Terraces at Crosswinds. It will stand at the highest point in Tagaytay – snuggled in Barangay Iruhin Central, along Calamba Road. The village is a scenic hour and a half from Manila on a straight drive. It could, of course, take much longer if one is enticed to stop along the way by the pasalubong stores, the plant and herb gardens, the fruit and vegetable stalls, and the shops that sell everything from coffee to vinegar to cheese to honey.

The pleasures of Tagaytay beautifully blended with the charm of the Swiss Alps

The Terraces at Crosswinds gives families access to everything that makes Tagaytay one of the best places in the country. But beyond this, it will re-create, on the lush rolling hills of Tagaytay, a Swiss Alpine village with all the charm and elegance that come with it. Pine tree-lined streets will weave and wind through the community’s 24 hectares creating cul de sacs and rotundas delightfully scattered around the village. As with most Brittany developments, mini parks and plazas will dot the village’s landscape and provide havens of shade and greenery.

The homes in The Terraces at Crosswinds will take one into the charming Swiss mountain hamlets with their European chalets. Here, the gabled and gently sloping roofs will sit atop wooden facades decked with shuttered windows and colorful flower boxes. Outdoor decks and balconies will overlook brightly lush gardens and the rich, yet orderly landscaping that will fill the village.

The Terraces at Crosswinds is so perfectly located that, from the community, one has magnificent views of Manila Bay, Laguna de Bay, and the wonderfully green hills of Tagaytay. The development will have six enclaves, each inspired by the stunning Swiss mountain ski and lake resorts. Decked with parks and playgrounds, the village will also offer an infinity pool where families can soak in the scenery and teasing breezes. For the adventure seekers who enjoy movement and exercise, there will be hiking, mountain bike, and ATV trails; and for those who prefer to bask in the comfort of nature, exquisite hanging pavilions will provide comfort for the eye and sanctuary for the soul.

The Terraces at Crosswinds was master planned with care for the land, and care for the dreams of families hoping to find a refuge in one of the most beautiful places in the country – stunning Tagaytay.
