The Herdade da Matinha property is absolutely beautiful. Rolling hills, horses, very natural. The owners were fantastic and we enjoyed chatting with them. We loved their open attitude about welcoming people to their property. The rooms were very pretty, clean, and I enjoyed the attention to detail in the decor throughout the property. The breakfast and snacks were outstanding as...

What I do like about this type of places is that you do not feel to be in a hotel but visiting friends or relatives. Until you get the bill of course-) Perfect conditions and setting to chill out, all day and night long. Great food also. I would just use more seasonal local products/fruits for breakfast - eg figs...

We had only one night on the way from Faro to Lisbon. It seems quite expensive – especially when comparing it with Casa Da Insua and InterContinental in Porto, both 5 stars and about the same price. The room was quite good, and ok in size. A lot of the furnitures were from Ikea – bit disappointing – Trying to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Herdade da Matinha. A hidden gem in the Alentejo region with wonderful food, great staff, and lots of activities to take part in. Yoga, horseback riding, surfing, or just relaxing by the pool…Herdade da Matinha has it all. The grounds and facilities are beautifully maintained with an enchanting mix of rustic and modern touches....

Arrived here from Pine Cliffs / Sheraton Algarve - this place cured our blandness overload - a stunning rural location to reawaken the senses. The hotel is very cool and very relaxed at the same time - a mix of chic design-led common areas (note the piles of Wallpaper* / similar) with unfussy practical accommodation. Alfredo and Monica are devoted...

It was a our second time here and the staff and owners recognised us 2 years later, impressed.

After reading the previous reviews which almost took us to another place I can only say that I had the perfect time at Herdade da Matinha!

The farm is so nice located, really in the countryside. Beautiful small cities in the Alentejo coast can be visited from there (zanbujeira do mar, Vila nova de mil fontes, Porto covo). The area of the farm is very nice and well taken care. I would imagine that in spring/summer time the place is even enjoyable. Going in winter, specially...

For a relaxing and off-the-beaten-track bed and breakfast, check out Herdade da Matinha. It was recommended to us by some of our friends who went to Portugal to surf a few years ago. It's about 2 hours south of Lisbon and feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. One of the owners is an artist so there is bright...
