Villa Angela was able to serve the purpose of our stay. The house is quite big and I love the big front yard of the house which is rarely found when you are staying in the heart of the city. The entire house though nicely aged needs a little more maintenance. I see visible file of dust at the corners and underneath the furniture. Some little house spiders already become comfortable on their little webs on some dangling chandeliers which bring a creepy sight on the observant visitors.
The room has minimal furniture, just basically what we need. It has the old closet, a mirror and a side table that has a non-working old lamp – old beautiful bedside lamp.
In our room and at the dining area found a framed photo of Tom Cruise and the 2nd generation owner of Villa Angela Heritage House. This room is the room used by the famous Hollywood actor when he came in Ilocos to shoot his movie “4th of July”.
What creates a more wonderful experience is the breakfast. The staff here were really helpful and they made us feel warmly welcomed, they even cooked us our instant noodles without additional charge, they asked us the night before if what time do we want our breakfast served and they did as we requested.
The breakfast is served in the long table, in an old fashioned dining wears. Here you can have a chance to take your meal together with some other visitors which is really nice and festive. I happened to talk to one of the group who is staying on the room next to us and had a wonderful morning conversation. They mentioned they came from Pagudpud and regretted the short stay due to the uncooperative weather making them missed the good tour. They advised us to leave Vigan earlier to allow an ample time for finding a place in Pagudpud and avoid the possible hustle of bad weather in the late afternoon. The advice was indeed helpful and I was thankful to them.
