Now that we have been open for a few months and with more families coming, we’ve discovered new needs and feel the time has arrived to improve our space, and to do that, we need your help.

Aldeia is a family friendly cafeteria but we like to call it a family space. It was created thinking about babies, children and grown ups.

Our concept is unique in Lisbon. We’re a cafeteria that offers healthy foods, wi-fi, a play space designed for children with kids and motherhood books available. We also have a space for a variety of activities: birthday parties, shows, workshops such as music for babies, elderly yoga, belly dance for pregnant women, painting, book presentations, theatre and much more! There’s also a small shop with books and products made by mothers - we’re very interested in promoting entrepreneurship by other mothers.

a nossa Aldeia

Aldeia/Village was created by two mothers, and their need to find a place where we could share time with our kids and with other families… and also to manage work and motherhood.  On that search we decided to create Aldeia. It’s simple and welcoming place, everything was designed with love and thought for all family members, where everyone - parents or not, friends, grandparents and grandchildren… can fell at home… a place to share our stories, have fun, work (why not), enjoy a snack and grow together… All of this is our Village! 

Now that we have been open for a few months and with more families coming, we’ve discovered new needs and feel the time has arrived to improve our space, and to do that, we need your help.

About the author

I’m Sonia, mother of two and one of the founders of the Village, a social worker by training. Motherhood was a revolution… and I started to feel that the most important thing was to spend time with my little ones and so I decided to no longer pursue a full time job on an office.

On that discovery I noticed there wasn’t a space where families could get together and share experiences and feel welcomed with their children, a space that not only calls it self “family friendly”, but that actually is, a place where we parents could sit, have a peaceful snack, meet with friends and other parents, enjoy a coffee and chat.  I found another mother that also felt that way, and so the Village was born.

I’m Priscilla, mother of a boy and partner at the Village. I’ve always believed in the project, first of all because I’m a mother and I feel the need to be closer to my son and still manage a work routine. The Village has a welcoming environment where kids feel at home and don’t want to leave. It is a wonderful place for all ages.

e os concertos!
