Alfea is a large white building with a bluish grey roof.
- The East Wing is a wing that was previously used for war preparation, but has mostly been left empty due to the lack of conflict. It has since been used for the annual spectacle.
- Fairy Hall
- Specialist Hall
- Headmistress' office
- Winx Suite
When entering the courtyard, across from the gates is the Fairy Hall, recognizable with a golden winged statue over the door. The Specialist Hall is to the right of the courtyard and looks more utilitarian than the Fairy Hall.
As a whole, Alfea's architecture resembles an old manor or castle that was modernized with metal walkways, modern wood staircases and pillars. It has a both modern and ancient feel.
Fate the Winx Saga
Alfea is the center of the action for all of Season 1 of Fate, the Winx Saga. Except for a couples of scenes in Aster Dell or Gardenia, the entirety of the plot happens in Alfea or right outside of its gates.
Bloom, Aisha, Terra, Musa and Stella live in the Winx suite. Sky and Riven seem to share a room in the Specialist Hall. Dane, Sam, and Beatrix are assumed to have rooms in either hall as well.
For most of Season 1, Farah Dowling was the Headmistress of Fairies, and Saul Silva the Headmaster of Specialists. Ben Harvey serves as Botany teacher.

Changes from the original series
- It is based on Alfea and Red Fountain from the original Winx Club series.
- In Fate: The Winx Saga, Alfea is located on Solaria, unlike in Winx Club, where it is located on Magix .
- The Killruddery House in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland was used as the Alfea building.
- It seems like Alfea College has a couple hundred students, though it is unknown exactly how many.
- Queen Luna of Solaria seems to have a very important role in Alfea's existence. Stella mentions that Headmistress Dowling swore an oath to her mother. It is unknown if that is a joke.
