ASILO comes from the word Silong, which means to take shelter. It's a place where you can have a retreat and take shelter, away from the stormy, fast-paced life in Manila. Avida, the developer behind Asilo, is known for affordable housing and not compromising on what matters in life.
I like the name because it reminds me of a cute little town in the Veneto region in Italy called Asolo near Bassano. It's also located on a higher elevation around a hill, enjoys a colder climate and fresher air, and has a small gourmet community.
I like it because it is located on holy ground, beside the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Tagaytay.
It's in the early selling stages (35% sold), so you can still choose the units you prefer.
Here's an executive summary on everything you need to know about Asilo:
