Herdade da Matinha 

Herdade da Matinha is located in a magnificent valley, surrounded by Cercal Ridge, and offers 20 rooms in an absolutely irresistible environment, where the Alentejo reveals its splendor and difference.

W e arrive and we are received by the distinct aromas, shapes and tones of the property, staring with the poems lined up on the façade of the house. Details of a select place where each feature shows the dedication of its owners, who transformed the property with good taste creating an authentic refuge in harmony with its surrounding.

The old house, gradually refurbished, did not lose its original charm. The rooms were designed for rest, because here the living is outside, under the porch, or in one of the pleasant corners of the Herdade, specially designed for your well being. The hotter or rainy days invite to stay in the common living room, to seize the good music which is always present, read a book or take a look into a magazine.

The activities are thought of with the same care. Yoga sessions, mini surf trips for the mornings of the younger ones, guided or independent hikes and occasional events with well-known jazz musicians. But the distinctive mark of Herdade da Matinha are its famous gastronomy gatherings, perfect to entertain in a special evening or to spend a weekend with friends.

Live music, wine tasting, plays and a constant artistic atmosphere invite guests to stay on the property. Outside the Herdade, one of the symbols of Southwest – Rocha de Água d’Alte – deserves a visit, just as the numerous paradise beaches of this coast.

Turismo Rural

Cercal do Alentejo

  • Alfredo Moreira da Silva and Mónica Belleza Owners

    Monica and Alfredo had their bags packed ready to go to Australia when they came across Matinha. It was love at first sight. As their three children were growing up their project was growing too. They have lived here more than 10 years. With mum dedicated to tourism and dad to arts and crafts and a chef by nature, they have extended their personalities letting their passions for nature and the countryside run wild. They let nothing get in their way. In the beginning, when there was no electricity, the guests were lit by candlelight.
