Location: Orani, Bataan
Owner: Ms. Lucy Chamboleyron
Le Petit Baguio, is a place with a casual, homey atmosphere. Located on the mountain edge of the national park of Bataan, it is recommended for those who are fond of nature and random walks. The resort is the “return to nature” dream of Frenchman, Jean-Paul Chambouleyron who left France in 1994, and settled down here with his Lucie, who comes from Tala.
It has five bungalows on stilts, made
from natural materials – bamboo and cogon – each with anice terrace from where you can enjoy a view of the mountains. The
interior decoration is personalized and pleasing, each room wallpapered in a different color and hung with engravings of
birds. Velvety carpeting, beds draped in snow-white quilts and enveloped in huge mosquito nets, all give the impression of
comfort and well-being.
Moreover, the nights are deliciously cool and refreshing. Each bungalow, where the meals are usually served, has a good view from its terrace. The cooking is done by Lucie who is a master of both French and Filipino cuisines. Meals are a moment to savour!
A little farm on the property supplies the resort’s daily needs – eggs, chickens, ducks, geese and pigs. There is also a large orchard of calamansi, guava, banana, breadfruit, and pineapple. You can buy the farm produce and gather them yourself.The drawback, however, is the nearby cock-breeding area, responsible for the very early morning call!
Le Petit Baguio offers the opportunity for an excellent study of nature – an activity which will interest and amuse the children. Some schools organize nature study classes here at certain times of the year: A few development projects have been planned for the future, such as the installation of a swimming pool and playground.
Le Petit Baguio is located in Orani Bataan, 115 kms from Manila. You can ride tricycle at the Orani town proper to get there.
