It’s an irresistible proposition: imagine having a home that’s the perfect blend of lakeside with resort-like appeal. If you’re attracted by both the trannquility and the leisure options of a large inland body of water, you might want to take notice of a prestige project of the Active Group of Companies – a lakeshore resort community in Balete, Batangas, on a property that overlooks, and with direct access to, the largest lake in Batangas Province.
With all the challenges posed by the pandemic in the past year, people are on the lookout for healthier environments to the crowded polluted cityscapes. And with good reason: a recent article from the International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health pointed out that people living close to water have better health than people who don’t.
These health benefits can be directly “blue space” – the sensual perception of the colors, sound, and motions of water like the sea, lake, or river. Studies have shown that “blue space” relaxes the body in a “blue mind” effect, boosts immune system, fresh air, sunshine.
“Lakeside living invites endless days on the water,” says, Architect Antonio “Toti” Turalba Jr., the president and chief executive officer of the Active Group. “You get access to year-round water activities” and pursue an active and healthy outdoor lifestyle.”
Mozzafiato is envisioned to include distinct residential, marina and commercial areas anchored by the site’s magnificent views of and direct access to Taal Lake.
With uninterrupted westerly views across Taal Lake offered by its elevated Position, Alta del Lago is the residential section of Mozzafiato. As its name implies, this subdivision is located high “above the lake,” The social, commercial, and recreational centerpiece of Mozzafiato will be a future marina strip and boat club that will enable residents and guests to have an easy, laidback lakeside resort lifestyle similar to the lakefront communities that are popular in the United States, Switzerland, and Italy.
At Mozzafiato, the lake provides the recreational venue for a variety of watersports activities. “Imagine taking your boat out to the lake,” explains Toti Turalba. “You can visit the other lakeside towns, or simply relax on your boat, basking in the most gorgeous scenery this side of Batangas. And if you tire of the lake, you can always party on land in your own home!”
