A Filipino-Style Cottage in San Pablo, Laguna
Vinya Alcantara, the mother of Casa San Pablo proprietor Boots Alcantara, welcomes us into her two-storey house
In 1986, homeowner Vinya Alcantara moved into this beautiful country cottage with a pitched roof, brick walls, and crawling vines. Found on a six-hectare land that used to be a coconut tree plantation, this two-storey home is filled with precious antique furniture and other wooden pieces.
For a relaxed and comfortable feel, the traditional Filipino items are paired with bright colors, rustic decor, and flourishing plants.
