Market Manila - Villa Angela, Vigan, Ilocos Sur

Market Manila - Villa Angela, Vigan, Ilocos Sur | The Traveler | Scoop.it

The best way to describe Villa Angela is to say that it is a quaint old home and is wickedly good value for money. At PHP2,600, four in our party shared an enormous corner room with three four-poster beds and an ensuite bathroom. The tariff also included a breakfast of delicious longganisa and fried eggs… Not bad...

 

"Every inch of Villa Angela speaks boldly to guests whose infectious curiosity allows a dance with life that has disappeared.  By all means drink fully from the well of a bygone era.  You won’t be disappointed but enlightened without measure."

Historic Town of Vigan...is the best-preserved example of a planned Spanish colonial town in Asia, including the historical checkerboard street plan.  One of the joys of Vigan is its old villas (mostly dating from the 19th century), which are open to visitors. You can even stay at one (Villa Angela), which I did and can only recommend. One really feels like the lady or the lord of the manor there, sitting, eating and sleeping at furniture that you normally aren't allowed to touch in a museum.

Located just a skip and a hop away from the famed Calle Crisologo, this heritage house is the only "hotel" in Ilocos worth revisiting.
