Somewhere in Lipa, Batangas stands an events place that resembles the breathtaking and picturesque places in Netherlands.

/ 16 February 2021

The Netherlands is a small country that boasts of having the best scenery anyone could ever witness in his or her entire life. When people talk about barns, sheeps, ducks, windmills, flowers, and cheese they imagine what life would be like in the Netherlands. But what if we tell you that there is a place in Lipa, Batangas that resembles the country? 

The Old Grove Farmstead in Lipa, Batangas is a five-hectare land filled with things you thought you could only see in the Netherlands. The place showcases its bright red barn ready to house your events or gatherings, and  a windmill where you and your company could take photo memorabilias.

A trip to the Netherlands would not be complete without petting barn animals. In the Old Grove Farmstead, there are herds of sheep and donkeys you could feed as if you’re really living in the countryside. 

You don’t want to miss the opportunity to ride a boat in the most peaceful lake in Batangas. A man-made lagoon is perfect for a romantic date or for meditation. You may opt to feed the ducks or enjoy the boat ride all to yourself. 

If you’re not terrified of hanging bridges, there is also one waiting for you in the Old Grove Farmstead. 

Lastly, the place offers nicely decorated interiors. There are log and farm tools art installations that are quite popular to visitors who love taking pictures.
