Default Is there a quiet place in Phils?

We are strongly considering a move in 6 to 12 months to a quieter place - but does it exist.?
I am in a Gated Community and whilst it is basically quiet therein immediately outside is another issue. Loud Karaoke, Dogs constant barking and screaming - yes I know, many suffer the same plight.
Does anyone live anywhere in Luzon that fits the bill??? If so, I would love to know to check it out for future reference.
I had a look at San Antonio yesterday and whilst quiet fits the bill, the infrastructure is a long way from what we need. We are seeking about 400 plus sq. mts. of land, 2 br 2 bath home as we want to have a garden. That usually rules out gated communities as small land is the normal. Close to good hospital and medical services, good shopping centre and a reasonable internet.
Am I dreaming - I hope someone out there can come up with some suggestions?
Now I know some members might live in such a location and by televising it, may be loathe to give it out. I am happy to sign a 'confidentiality agreement; in triplicate to maintain my silence!!!

Many Expats are settling in La Union. Towns of Aringay, Bauang, San Fernando, San Juan, Bacnotan.

Lorma Hospital has quality care, CSI, Manna Mall, SaveMore for shopping. SM & Robinsons on the way. SM Baguio not far away. PLDT just started offering Home Fiber Installation. Poro Point Bay Walk to get exercise walking or biking.

Cost of Living is reasonable however titled land is skyrocketing. You can find country type farm living if you head inward toward the mountains along the streams and rivers. Hundreds of Resorts to choose from along the Beaches, plenty of nightlife available.

You are probably right, the roosters don't worry me really, but the other 2 are a PIA. Mind you after 8 years in Thailand, it was much the same there, am just hoping to get lucky!!!

If you head up towards Crown Peak or the road toward Morong it can be very peaceful

LOL, we stopped at the guard booth on Subic to ask if we were heading in the right direction to go to Zoobic Zoo and they busted me for no seat belt. We tried to tell him I removed the seat belt because I had intentions of getting out to ask but they didn't want to hear nothing. They are strict there, Radar guns and all.

One will find that rentals in Subic/Olongapo area are extremely expensive. I go there sometimes as a change of scenery for the night life but I'm ready to depart after 2 days. I get this feeling I'm in an Industrious ship yard with all the cranes and ships and it just doesn't have that ambience of a relaxing area to live.

The harbour front area with the malls and hotel etc is a very small part of subic. Heading south is largely forest and is very quiet.

The south area is forested and quiet because people know not to live there.

Not a safe place to live.
