Today is Hispanic Day (Día de la Hispanidad) or National Day (Fiesta Nacional de España), an annual national public holiday in Spain which marks the anniversary of the date that Christopher Columbus first set foot in the Americas.

By extension, it’s all hola and viva in South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, specifically in its Spanish district, the Mediterranean Villas, an enclave reminiscent of the Iberian coast complete with quaint tiled-roof villas and feature amenities all screaming fun. It’s a taste of Spain south of Manila.

And when we say a ‘taste of Spain’, you can bet your last slice of chorizo that we mean it.

El Primero. The Mediterranean Villas, the first of many in South Forbes, is now alive with its village amenities complete and a fast-growing number of residents moving in.

“It is a delight to see that a master-planned themed community such as ours is now revealing its charming character with our residents living in model villas of our design,” said Cathay Land president Jeffrey Ng. “Over the years, our residents built of their own creativity, guided by our design restrictions of course, which has further enhanced the theme and appeal of the whole place.”

The Mediterranean Villas originally offered seven unique model homes which caters to the different tastes of its buyers: the Castellon, Sevilla, Alicante, Cadiz, Tarragona, and the Duplex comprise the two-storey villas, and the Costa del Sol is the sole bungalow.

Now, to add to the already vibrant character of the enclave, South Forbes has added to its own family of model villas so that its future residents have more to choose from in answer to their requirements and preferences.

Newly-weds who want to enjoy each other’s company first or bachelors will enjoy the compact yet comfortable Alhambra and Marbella. The parents-to-be can turn the extra bedroom into a nursery. The bachelor, on the other hand, can use it as a home office or just a guest room for visiting family and friends.

Hasta Luego. Move in right here, right now. Call 635-7777 or 631-8855 for a free city tour or log on to for more information.
