“If you want to discover another side of Portugal, with a cultural, social and environmental heritage untouched by time and by the hand of man, this is your home. Herdade da Matinha is simple like life once was. Simple as life should be. In the heart of Costa Alentejana, in Aldeia do Cercal, you will find a house that has arms and is always waiting for you. Each room was thought to detail. With natural elements that bring to the landscape and cultural heritage of the region in harmony with the simplicity and comfort of the architectural elements and modern decoration.”
Herdade da Matinha may have our favorite location in Portugal, as it’s located at “Costa Vicentina” (Vicentine Coast), one of our country’s most beautiful and untouched places. This is a family-owned countryside estate and this is what’s magical about it: you truly feel like your at home, as the property was created to be the owner’s home in the region, 20 years ago. Its 22 rooms will make you want to stay there forever! They have a mix of rural and boho-chic decor, very relaxing and comfortable. However, we strongly recommend you leave your room to not only enjoy the region, but also the activities available on property: equestrian experiences, wellness, sustainable agriculture and much more. The perfect place for families but also couples, who are looking for an authentic and slow-living experience.
