Gallivant To A Timeless Elegance of Villa Milagros Mansion and Garden

Last January 24, 2018 - Villa Milagros Mansion and Garden - we are on board to discover and witness a grandeur place that was hidden for a long time and now opening its door to reveal its amazing elegance.

Constructed in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains, The Villa Milagros Mansion is an ancestral house of the Liamzon family of Rodriguez Rizal (formerly Montalban). It took 5 years (1965-1969) to build the mansion and revealed just in time for the 35th wedding anniversary of Mr. Isidoro Buenviaje Liamzon and Ma. Milagros Manahan Liamzon. 

This grand house was inspired by the travels of the Liamzon couple in 1950's in Europe who wanted to build a house that had a European aesthetic then signed with the help of Architect Rey Eustaquio to help realize their vision.


We arrive at our destination around 12:00 noon and before our trip starts, we meet the members of Liamzon family and tell some history about the house.
Ms. Andrea Liamzon - Manager and granddaughter of Liamzon couple Isidoro and Milagros Liamzon. Thanks to her dedication and commitment to restore their grandparent's ancestral house, we enjoy experiencing cinematic venue for our very special occasion.


After the short story, we proceed to our lunch prepared by Banquets by VS&F 
Banquets by VS&F continues the tradition of creative cuisine
Joyce Abesamis was born into good food. 

Her parents, Mr. Buddy Abesamis and Mrs. Josephine Abesamis, established VS&F, one of the most successful Filipino catering companies. VS&F began more than 30 years ago by delivering packed lunches to malls and offices until it grew into a full-service catering business, which is well-known for its delicious food. Among its exceptional dishes are Chicken Teriyaki, Lengua with Mushroom Gravy, Buco Pandan, and Tempura.

Inspired by their parents’ trailblazing attitude, Joyce and her sisters Veronica, Aina, Issa, and Tine started their own venture in 2008: a mobile bar specializing in alcoholic beverages, which they named Elation. Joyce, even at a young age, helped on marketing and accommodating clients. 
Aside from her natural eagerness to interact with clients, Joyce also loved to cook and would always give in to her sisters’ requests for special occasions or even just for a simple family get-together. She naturally gravitated to culinary arts, which became her chosen college course. Joyce took up BS International Hospitality Management with Specialization in Culinary Arts from the Ducasse Institute Philippines at Enderun Colleges. She also trained at a fine dining Michelin star restaurant in Paris, France.
Exposure to European cuisine motivated Joyce to manage a subsidiary of VS&F, one that is focused on contemporary catering. Thus, Banquets by VS&F was born out of Joyce’s desire to bring innovative and luxurious culinary styles and concepts to the celebration scene in Metro Manila. The spread prepared by Banquets by VS&F would have more current fare such as Watermelon and Feta Skewers, Cajun Shrimp and Mango Salad, Carpaccio or Cheese Platter. Joyce’s concoctions provide a novel twist to traditional festivities, making the events more remarkable and extraordinary for the guests. 




Banquets by VS&F is client-centered, accepting only 1 event per day to make sure that their team is a full force towards customer satisfaction. Always with a personal touch, Joyce personally handles the clients of from booking, food tasting, event proper, and post-event discussions. 

True to its being a contemporary catering company, Banquets by VS&F also has its in-house stylist, Project Events MNL, which focuses on clean, elegant, and timeless set-ups. Whether it is a black-and-white theme for a wedding or a military-inspired set-up for a baby girl’s first birthday or a chic presentation for an intimate get-together, trust Banquets by VS&F to pull out all the stops in order to deliver the client’s dream party.

After finishing our lunch and fully loaded with yummy dishes, we are ready to go around every corner of the mansion.

Villa Milagros' two outdoor gardens, Delia's Garden and Cristina's Garden, can serve as your al fresco venue for a wedding ceremony or any kind of reception. Both gardens are fully-landscaped and have spectacular views of The Mansion. Each garden has its own Terrace—tiled areas that are perfect extensions to your chosen garden venue. Delta's Garden can host up to 200 guests; while Cristina's Garden can host up to 130.
  Delia's Garden

Cristina's Garden









The North Wing is a brand-new all-weather events hall that can fit up to 300 guests. Built in the same style and spirit of The Mansion. The North Wing serves as an extension of the Liamzon family's ancestral home. The hall has opulent crystal chandeliers and a six-meter high ceiling. Besides being fully air-conditioned, our premiere hall comes with spectacular views of both The Mansion and its Gardens. The North Wing's adjacent garden, Sanse's Garden may also be used as a cocktail, buffet, or wedding ceremony area.



For smaller and more intimate events, consider The Liamzon Hall — the oval-shaped hall that serves as the heart of The Mansion. This air-conditioned hall is flanked by beautiful outdoor terraces on each side that are visible through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Its maximum capacity is 45 guests. You may also use Delta's Terrace for your buffet, if necessary.

The Mansion's impressive original Dining Room may also be used for private dinners.


Whether it is a wedding, an engagement shoot, or a music video, the Villa's classic, elegant and timeless look can match your desired theme. Since every event or shoot is different, we work with our clients to make optimum use of our property.
