Vatel Manila is proud to announce that it has found a second home - The Terraces Dasmariñas - in Cavite. A 2.2-hectare property owned by the Ledesma family, it has the charms of a farm (the area is planted to several fruit-bearing trees like star apple and dalandan) and a garden setting.

Soon to rise on the wide expanse of space is a church plaza with a fountain (clearly inspired by town layouts made by Spanish settlers in their colonies in the New World) and several attractions designed to captivate the guests' imagination. Already, several Filipino houses based on actual structures from other places in the country have been built making The Terraces akin to a little Nayong Pilipino. Although totally distinct from Vatel's homebase of The Mango Farm, suffice to say that the development of The Terraces is inspired by TMF's own development as the premier farm/garden venue north of Manila.

The name The Terraces was based on the property's most attractive feature - an Ifugao house on top of a hill surrounded by terraces-like construction. This house - built according to specifications as those found in Mountain Province - overlooks the spanish plaza and gives a breathtaking view of the rest of the property. The development time frame is currently at 6 months, so we are looking at finally opening the property to guests and visitors alike by June of 2006. By the way, did I mention that this place was once called The Farm? ;-p

We look forward to welcoming you soon to The Terraces Dasmariñas!

Photos pending.
