One of my favorite places near Manila is Tagaytay — especially before it became the weekend place for everybody. With it being an hour away (yes! If there’s no traffic) from the city, it’s the nearest place to unwind and enjoy viewing Taal Volcano at Taal Lake.
We decided to stay for a night in Tagaytay after we swung by our home in Cavite. The last time my eldest saw our home was when he was 10 months old and now he’s 8! My youngest has never seen our home at all so it was the perfect opportunity to visit the South of Manila.
Since the whole family wanted to join, we rented a place through airbnb.com and stayed in Le Fleur Country Villa in Montevista Subdivision.
The caretakers lived just downstairs so all our needs were met.
The place was perfect with 3 bedrooms and a spacious attic that was turned into a den or lounge area.
The attic was the only place that has air conditioning — not that the house needed it.
The villa was just lovely and homey all around. We really wished we could have stayed longer.
It was a perfect place to hold our family photos too so we did just that.
The kitchen was well-equipped and coffee was available too.
We cooked breakfast and lunch in the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a place to stay in Tagaytay with the whole family, Le Fleur Country Villa is a great place to stay in.
