On this day in 1951, Paris, the capital city of France, celebrates turning 2,000 years old. In fact, a few more candles would have technically been required on the birthday cake as the City of Lights was most likely founded around 250 B.C. Nonetheless, the city today retains its reputation as a center for food, fashion, commerce and culture.

A city replete in history becomes the perfect inspiration to 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, recipient of the Best Golf Community Development by the 2007 CNBC International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property awards program, and the Highly Commended Award for Best Development by the 2010 Bloomberg Asia-Pacific Residential Award.

Jeffrey Ng, Cathay Land president, shares “Paris holds an alluring beauty and chic lifestyle that is unmatched anywhere in the world. Châteaux de Paris in South Forbes Golf City is the address of our country’s distinguished where they will experience a slice of the French life.”

Enclave of Landmarks. Dominating “the most beautiful avenue in the world”, the Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile stands at the center of a perspective which starts at the Louvre palace to finish at the Grand Arche in the La Défense district.

Amazingly, Châteaux de Paris’ fully landscaped and lighted main avenue, akin to the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, reveals a touch of the City of Lights from the village gate to the palatial grand clubhouse. At the center of the whole enclave is the fully-operational Clocktower at the Rotunda.

The Grand Clubhouse is a piece of work in itself. Taking its cue from Luxembourg Palace and Hôtel de Ville, the village clubhouse comes complete with an elaborate flower garden, reflection pools that mimic a peripheral moat, and of course, the high-pitched roof. Imagine the wonderful memories that can be made here: a young lady’s debut, junior prom or senior ball, even a wedding reception — definitely a lot to last a lifetime.
