We are happy to welcoming our guests in the comfortable Guesthouse of the Herdade da Mata. We would like our guests to share our passion for the beautiful Alentejo landscape and to experience the day to day life on an typical extensive farm.

The Guesthouse

The house has three bedrooms with two single beds each and en-suite bathrooms with shower. Children's cots can be added if needed.

The cosy living/dining area, tastefully decorated and furnished in the Alentejo style to make our guests feel comfortable and at home, also has a fully equipped kitchenette and offers direct access to the terrace/garden area with barbecue.

On cooler nights the fireplace in the living area can be lit, on winter days the whole house is centrally heated.

From the terrace you can enjoy an attractive view over the Herdade da Mata with its lake and of the splendid star spangled sky at night. The terrace also offers direct access to the swimming pool.
