Bairro Vista Alegre
In the houses where the Vista Alegre Factory workers lived, a new concept of accommodation has now emerged at the Montebelo Vista Alegre Ílhavo Hotel, the Bairro Vista Alegre [Vista Alegre workers’ neighbourhood].
As part of the project to recover the entire factory space of this century-old porcelain brand, the new one-bedroom to three-bedroom Apartments, Studios and Deluxe Rooms offer a new accommodation experience, as a complement to traditional room types. Fully prepared to welcome you, these new accommodation concepts are perfect for families, extended stays and anyone who values autonomy and privacy, with access to all the services the hotel offers.
In the history of Lugar da Vista Alegre, the innovative social project that Vista Alegre created around the Factory stands out, creating conditions for workers to live close to their workplace and providing a set of infrastructure that allowed their entire family to grow here.
Tree-lined, with pleasant streets and developed around the factory and its central terrace, this neighbourhood included a theatre, a nursery, a cafeteria, a barbershop, a supply canteen, and even a football club (Sporting Clube da Vista Alegre) as well as the Vista Alegre Private Fire Department.
