I love booking unique and beautiful Airbnbs that are full of personality. From Happy Soul Santorini Villa in La Bella Tagaytay to the Birdland Beach Club in Pangasinan, I’ve been always on the lookout for any unique and quirky accommodation.
Good thing I found French Inspired Chalet de la Memoire before we went to Tagaytay for a staycation experience. During our 4-day trip to Tagaytay, I booked this place for our last night. Needless to say, it was much better than I expected.
French Inspired Chalet de la Memoire
Every corner is well-decorated. Each piece complements one another to offer a beautiful masterpiece – the entire room itself. Truly, the Airnb is French inspired. After staying at Le Coq Bleu, a French-owned Airbnb in Baguio, I can remember the owner telling us how much the French love keeping their homes beautiful. It’s an effortless elegance which is what you’ll get with the French Inspired Chalet de la Memoire.
Located at the Tagaytay Prime Residences, you’ll easily reach this place from Olivarez. It’s in the same building as the Nordic Homes Tagaytay. Whether you want to cook inside the unit or eat at nearby restaurants, there’s no problem. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants for you to choose from. If you choose to cook, there’s a supermarket just 5 minutes walk away and a 711 store 2 minutes walk away.

What We Loved
Upon entering the Airbnb unit, all that we could utter was “wow”. The room is very well decorated down to the last detail. I felt like I wasn’t in Tagaytay anymore. Instead, I imagined the Eiffel Tower just outside the window.
Once we were well rested, we went out on a walk to see what the neighborhood was like all the while looking for a supermarket. We did find one a few minutes walk away and bought a few kilos of meat, and some snacks. It was nice that the unit had its own usable kitchen, as well as a personal refrigerator. Ryk cooked us dinner to complement the wine.
We had our dinner outside on the balcony. I was tempted to use the dinner table provided inside but the view outside was far more alluring. We watched the sun set, did a toast, finished our food, and chatted. It was somewhat a private date between Ryk and I. The highlight of that night was the view of the fireworks from one of the malls a few kilometers away. We had a front row seat. It was both beautiful and romantic.
I think I’m getting a bit carried away. So anyways, back to the French Inspired Chalet de la Memoire. The bed was so fluffy and we loved all the organic sops and shampoos included in the welcome pack. They smelled soo goood!
All throughout our stay, Ryk and I had a great time hanging out in the balcony, as well as inside the room doing some photoshoots for Wanderera and The Ryk Photography.
