Portofino: Experience a slice of the Italian life

Anyone who has seen vignettes of life in Italy would want to keep coming back for more.

After all, isn’t Italy a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life?

But what if you can actually bring home that Italian flair to your life here in your very own home country?

Villar-owned Brittany offers its Portofino communities in Vista Alabang. The development  is an upscale Italian-inspired enclave nestled on a 1,500-hectare master-planned community.

Portofino offers lots with bigger cuts—up to 1,000 square meters, an abundance of open spaces, low density and a lifestyle one can’t have just anywhere. The community itself boasts of commercial areas, business park, medical facilities and prime universities.

Portofino Heights & Portofino South

Portofino Heights has 75 hectares while Portofino South has 50 hectares and these developments sit on a vast 300-hectare estate south of Manila, which brings to Manila that old world Italian charm and the contemporary chic of modern Europe.


Residents can enjoy a wide array of amenities. One can lounge by or take a dip in the swimming pools, sweat it out in the fitness gym, celebrate life’s precious moments and milestones in the grand function room, play badminton or beat friends or family members in a highly charged tennis game in the tennis court. Boys who want the quintessential Filipino sport meanwhile can settle their scores in the basketball court.

Your homes are ready

There are also limited ready-for-occupancy units for those who wish to change their lifestyle settings to a suburban, sprawling environment.

Raphael ready home

The Italian-inspired Raphael, which sits like a page out of Tuscany, has a lot area of 297 sqm and a floor area of 292 sqm.

Located in Portofino Heights Courtyards 3, Raphael has four bedrooms, four toilet and baths, an attic, a lanai, an automated two car garage as well as helper’s and driver’s rooms with toilet and bath.

Pietro ready home

The Pietro is as classic and quaint as can be. It has a floor area of 296 sqm with a floor area of 264 sqm. It is located in Portofino Heights 8. Like the Raphael, it has four bedrooms, four toilet and baths, a chick powder room, a lanai and helper’s and drivers rooms with toilet and bath. It also has an automated two-car garage.

Lorenzo ready home

The Lorenzo is smaller in size but is just as charming. It has a lot size of 277 sqm and a floor area of 177 sqm for its three bedrooms, powder room, a family hall, a lanai and a helper’s room with toilet and bath. Two cars fit in its garage.


The location of this Italian-inspired community is a big plus. It is within the city yet far from the madding crowd—three minutes away from Evia Lifestyle Center, a short drive from the Alabang Town Center and Festival Mall and Vista Mall Daang Hari; 10 minutes away from Asian Hospital and Medical Center; 20 minutes from Bonifacio Global City; 20 minutes from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and 29 minutes from the Makati central business district.

Prestigious schools abound, too, nearby—De La Salle Zobel, PAREF Woodrose School, Southville International and San Beda Alabang.

Golfers will likewise enjoy the short drive to Southlinks Golf Club, The Orchard Golf & Country Club and the Alabang Golf & Country Club.


Brittany’s Portofino has been widely recognized, a testament to the brand’s quality.

Portofino was recognized as The Best Premium House of the Year on Nov. 15, 2018 at The Outlook 2018: Philippines Buyers’ Choice Awards and Best Housing Development in Metro Manila & Philippines at the Philippines Property Awards 2014.

The promise of la dolce vita

Indeed, with Portofino, you can enjoy the promise of la dolce vita or “the good life” without necessarily traveling all the way to Europe.

You can plant your own mini version of Italy’s vineyards in the garden, play the music of Vivaldi in your living room, enjoy a sumptuous pasta dish with the whole family and, for dessert, devour on a homemade gelato right in your very own kitchen.

In this Italian-inspired enclave, la dolce vita is just right home.
