Third Stop: Casa San Pablo
We spent the night at Casa San Pablo, in San Pablo City. The main cottage has eleven country inspired bedrooms of different themes and sizes. We stayed at the “Birdhouse” while the “Hotwheels” is also very cozy, among other themes. Aside from the main cottage, there is also a “honeymoon cottage” for newlyweds as well as forever “honeymooners.”

I had the “sleep of my life” in Casa San Pablo. Something I experience everytime I go to Ilocos. I have not slept the way I did in the casa for a long time and it was just so rewarding. I may have been tired but whatever it is, the casa sent me to the deepest slumber which anybody would envy. In fact, as Ajing observed, Kite (7-yrs old) would like to stay another night despite the fact that there was no TV in the room.

The place has the feel of Baguio because of the pine trees around but when I was there, it was more of the “hacienda” feeling where guests were treated very well by the host and her people.During our stay, we were able to meet and chat with the matriach of the “casa”, Vin Alcantara. We got lucky that she gave us a tour of her house which was very awesome.
Lastly, I learned that the place grants special residency to artists for the purpose of finishing their work.
