I always keep coming back... a small place once (10 rooms top) and now double it. Still the very same friendly and familiar cozy feeling. The rooms are simple, nothing is luxurious at this place but everything is of great taste (in my opinion9 - eclectic and welcoming. The restaurant still has the magnifique homie food. Unfortunately they stope the...

We arrived in Herdade de Matinha to find paradise on Earth. The charming room and main buildings are modern and very tastefully decorated and furnished. Beds are super comfy but be sure to not oversleep and miss the tasty breakfast! Located amidst orange and olive trees, the pool is very nice. Hikers find many walk ways in the vicinity. Guests...

Near Atlantic Sea and yet right in Mediterranean countryside. Great to be with you love or with out family like we did. Malhão beach is great when uncrowded, Tasca do Celso in Milfontes is a must. In resume, three days and we felt like we were there for a week.

Just one hour trip brought us to such a special place. Check in with a great host that became our local guide with the best tips for visits around. Dinner and breakfast meals were absolutely incredible. My kids had nice horse ridding and my wife massage while I just had long siestas! Take the famous walk around the Costa Vicentina...

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....
