Vista Alabang: Luxury Real Estate in the Philippines
My husband and I recently moved into our forever home inside a quiet village in Quezon City. It’s the same village where he grew up. It’s also where the church we got married in is located! We’ve definitely been enjoying all the space. This is especially after living in a studio unit in Makati for more than a year. We like to go on daily walks with our dog, Booboo. I like taking advantage of our community’s online selling group as well. We can buy meats, fruits, vegetables, ice cream, and more. I feel fortunate to be a part of such a safe neighborhood where I get to be surrounded by fresh air and trees. If you’re looking for something similar, you might want to consider living in any of Vista Alabang‘s luxury real estate developments.
Brittany Corporation is the luxury residential arm of Vista Land known for its exclusive developments inspired by the world’s most scenic destinations. They aim to create the greatest urban landscapes and make luxury living a reality for residents through uniquely themed homes. I had the pleasure of doing a virtual tour of Vista Alabang’s enclaves in Portofino Heights, Portofino South, and Amore at Portofino. Read through Vista Alabang’s five priority values to know more about what makes their spaces worth living in!
Spending quality time with family is so important. While I sometimes miss the convenience of being on just one floor, living in a house has its many benefits. My husband and I have our own areas where we can work from home peacefully. But we also get to spend time with each other and with our pets in between and after work hours. I love having all the space to do different things. The living room is big enough for two people to do yoga and other fitness classes together. We have a service area dedicated to cleaning and laundry. The kitchen of my dreams has inspired me to learn more recipes and cook more often. Our house has an extra bedroom that we’ll eventually turn into a nursery, too. I’m so excited for when that time comes!
Living in any of Vista Alabang’s developments can give the same benefits and quality of life. Their spacious houses will make you want to dwell in each moment. All their luxury houses and lots are inspired by the chic style of cosmopolitan Italy and are surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and walkways. On top of that, residents can enjoy world-class amenities that include lap pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, function rooms, nature jogging trails, and more.
Health is Wealth
Before the lockdown, my husband and I were competitive athletes who got to exercise by playing our sport at least once a week. But because playing sports is restricted at the moment, we’ve had to find other ways to stay active. Thankfully, our village is big enough that we’re able to walk almost every day. The trees provide us shade and the many flowers make quite the view. We also like to say hello to the village church where we got married. Sometimes, I bike around to admire the different houses! On some days, we go to the park and enjoy the cool breeze.
Staying active and healthy is so crucial these days. It helps to be surrounded by nature, especially when you feel lonely and cooped up. Try taking a virtual tour of Vista Alabang’s developments if you’re looking for ample space with lots of greenery. Their houses and lots provide more than enough for residents to do home workouts and meditation sessions as well.
When it comes to choosing where you’ll be living long-term, one of the main considerations is location, location, location. When my husband and I got married, we were both working in Makati. It was one of the reasons we decided to rent a condo near our offices while waiting for our house to finish construction. We’re so grateful that everything fell into place despite construction delays due to the lockdown. For different reasons, we resigned from our jobs in Makati and are now working from home. This way, we get to enjoy our space and spend more time with each other.
If you think living in the south is convenient for you, you can check out the different luxury real estate developments of Vista Alabang, which are easily accessible via the Skyway. It’s near a lot of establishments like South City Hospital and Medical Center, Evia Lifestyle Center, and soon, Vitacare Hospital. Back when my husband and I used to compete in Ultimate Frisbee tournaments, some of our games were held near the area! It would take us about an hour and thirty minutes from Quezon City to get to Vista Alabang. I used to think it was far but now that I think about it, the highways make it accessible to central business districts like Makati and Bonifacio Global City through new and various thoroughfares.
Security and Safety
All of Vista Alabang’s developments are exclusive, private, and have CCTV cameras and electric fences installed. There are roaming patrols who ensure the safety and security of their residents for a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. I’ve read good reviews about them on Facebook as well.
Beautiful Home, Space, and Community
Take a quick look at this model unit in Vista Alabang. Though the style is very different from our #TeamKahoy + #TeamPuti home, I’m sure the unique design caters to a variety of people as well.
Vista Alabang was planned with families in mind. The amenities, location, and landscape come together with a unified and detail-oriented master plan. As mentioned, the prime location is close to shopping, dining, and entertainment centers. I remember always enjoying my trips to the south and spending time in these places! If you’d like to know more about Vista Alabang and the different uniquely themed developments of Brittany, you can visit their website or follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

Thanks for this very helpful article, Gretch. It helped me to decide in moving to the South and buy a new house with healthy spaces than buying a condo in Makati as my first home. I also love the features of Portofino in Vista Alabang, it is literally a stone’s throw away from Evia Lifestyle Center, where beautiful restaurants and premium essential services are located.
If you’re planning to visit Portofino, you may locate them via Google Map https://g.page/PortofinoHeights?share. Hope this helps! Stay safe.

This is so much fun to read, Miss Gretch! Thank you for this very interesting and helpful article!!

I am planning to do the same thing. Been eye-ing this place for years already. I was mesmerized by those houses and specially those trees, you can literally see them everywhere. I wanna have my “forever home’ there too, thank you for making me want this place more.

It’s really nice to see the classic architectural aesthetics being harmonized with modern lifestyle in a beautiful community. Definitely a bucket list. ❤️

Good read! I have a friend who is currently residing in Portofino. Lucky me, I was able to experience the beauty and luxury of this community!
Upon entering the village, the polite security guards will greet you with a big smile but don’t bother to come if no one’s expecting you. I heard from my friend that guards only allow authorized persons to enter the community. I am jealous! (and felt safe :D)
Also, I love how they made this community like a piece of Italy. I thought I was in Milan for a second! Wait, I will ask my friend to invite me again for a dinner in their house as I miss this place! I mean her. 😉

I actually have a friend who lives right in Portofino, somewhere around Phase 8 if I’m not mistaken and all I can tell you is the ambiance of their community is to die for! Its quiet and really peaceful and I really enjoy the community every time I visit. There was one time during his birthday that we rented out the function hall of Portofino’s clubhouse and went to swim– the pool was big and I really wanted to go and swim some more but the pandemic started.
I’m hoping to visit my friend soon when everything starts to come back to normal and probably suggest my aunts who are coming home from Canada to inquire or maybe invest in the area so I can visit the community more often too.

I am in love with this place! The ambiance is very peaceful and beautiful. The Italian vibe is definitely so much alive in here that you won’t be able to think about the stressful world outside the community. I can’t wait to visit the place again!

The Community is very quiet, and the main object is working outside with nature. Everything seemed to be wonderful and very agreeable. They really do live up to their words of a luxury community in the Philippines.

Hi Gretch, thanks for this wonderful blog that made me feel how life is to be living in Vista Land’s Italian-inspired home. It made me realize of saving now so I can afford a nice and comfortable home soon. Your good experience will be a living proof that can also be use to inspire other to invest their future home at Vista Alabang. 🙂

I have this friend who lives in Portofino, he told me that life in this village is like an instant trip to another country.
The ambiance and vibe are surreal.
Can’t wait to have my own dream house in Portofino!

I used to visit Portofino a lot because my grandparents lived there for a while. Honestly it’s incomparable to any other subdivision or village that I’ve been to. There’s just something so special about it!

Owning a single property means a lot to almost all of us. Whether you’re a young professional or just a student who’s just starting to build your own future.
House and lot property is just a perfect investment.
