When you’re looking for a getaway that’s far from the city’s hustle and bustle but still close enough to Manila, Tagaytay easily comes to mind. Its years of being a tourist destination, however, has given it a been-there-done-that appeal, causing people to settle for something else. But Vista Residences' luxury arm Brittany Corporation is planning to change this through Crosswinds, an enclave of residential homes, mid-rise condominiums, and commercial areas. Located in Tagaytay and surrounded by 23,000 pine trees, it’s a Swiss-inspired village that truly defines “staycation”.

“At Crosswinds, we offer our prospective homeowners a number of options with regard to their residence. Whether they want to live in a condominium, a town house, or a stand-alone residence which they can build from the ground up, they have the freedom to choose the lifestyle they are most comfortable with," Brittany division head Joan Patricia Dial said.

“As future members of the Crosswinds community, they can fashion their dream life in a self-contained, secure and beautiful setting,” she added.

Buyers who opt for lots only can choose from their three home sites communities: the 4.3-hectare Montreux Ville and Montreux Gardens, where lots range from 260 to 560 sqm and 350 sqm, respectively; the Pine Grove, which offer lots from 400 to 600 sqm in Phase I and from 225 to 374 sqm in Phase II; and Peak View & Cedar Brooks, which contain 450-1,000 sqm lots.

Ready-made homes that embody Swiss architecture can also be purchased in either the Swiss Quadrilles or the Deux Pointe. The Swiss Quadrilles is situated along the hills and contains four-unit townhomes, each rising two floors and possessing two bedrooms. Deux Pointe, which can be found at the highest point of Crosswinds, offer two-bedroom (Duetto Tresor), three-bedroom (Duetto Primo), and four-bedroom (Duetto Gran) duplex townhomes.

For those who prefer the compact yet convenient lifestyle offered by a condominium, Crosswinds has Grand Quartier, a set of condo developments with eight residential storeys containing one- or two-bedroom units. At the ground floor are amenities like an infinity pool, spa, gym, function room, and coffee shop. If you’re buying a unit as an investment, you can also choose to lease it out through the development's condotel operation.

“With Tagaytay being one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country and with a growing number of travelers looking for more sophisticated accommodations, unit owners will be rewarded with a good return of their investment,” Crosswinds project head Martin John Lim explained.

“A community, especially that which is devoted on luxury and leisure, should be always marked with constant improvements. At Crosswinds, we are not just adding new features for our current homeowners to enjoy but also expanding our residential portfolio so others may experience the high comfort that living in Crosswinds entails,” Dial said.
