Solar Alegria is a captivating blend of two historic houses, dating back to 1856 and 1843 respectively, known as Casa do Amor. Over the years, these remarkable structures have undergone several renovations, culminating in their present-day splendor.

Encircled by sprawling fields, the landscape delights visitors with its ever-changing hues and captivating atmosphere. Conveniently located just 25 minutes away from the pristine beaches of Aveiro. There, you can indulge in the pleasures of a vast sandy beach, accompanied by a charming fisherman’s village and a delectable array of freshly caught seafood.
