The Herdade da Matinha was unlike most any other accommodation experience we have had in our travels. It is remotely located and it is comfortable with exceptional service. While our room was a bit small but the access to a myriad of common spaces suited us perfectly. Unfortunately or fortunately we had a really bad rain period during our visit...

Great spot in the countryside but very close to the coast. Friendly staff. Very well decorated common areas and rooms. Great breakfast! Our room only had heating with an air conditioning unit over the bed which isn't the most comfortable option. The bed sheets were humid and kept me from having a good night sleep.

We keep coming back year after year because they make us feel like we're staying at home. Rooms are cozy and nicely decorated. Staff is friendly and professional. Breakfast is delicious. One last remark: if you go there, make sure you book at least one dinner with them. You can thank me later for that one.

We spent 2 nights here and couldn't believe our good fortune in finding such a gem! The quiet rural location, the decor and ambience and the extraordinary evening meals all contribute to making this stay memorable. As to day excursions, you are just a short drive from the coast if you can bear to take yourself away from your guesthouse....

What a beautiful, homely place. Wonderful quiet rooms and loads of open spaces to enjoy a good read, a nice bottle of wine and a snack or simply a nice chat and relaxing time. But the best bit is the kitchen which serves a great breakfast and wonderful Asian-Portuguese fusion for dinner. And all this just a half hour ride...

My husband and I had reserved a room at Herdade da Matinha as a two-night stopover on our way back to Lisbon in late September. We had a pleasant room, comfortable though not overly spacious, but it was a treat to have a large shower. Air conditioning was available but we slept with the doors open as it was so...
