This is much more of a family run old house / inn. Full of history with rooms akin to something out of a game of thrones castle. Staff are friendly and it's good value for money. Main downside is relatively weak wi if but that's made up for the charm and character of the place. Food is simple but fine... More

I offered a two-night stay at this marvellous spot to my parents and myself...in order to prepare my mind to get back to work. The property is lovely, the service informal and friendly...and the food...amazing. Took some time at the pool relaxing and tanning and enjoying the view to the city at a distance. I will come back...soon!

Fantastic reception from all. Beutifull grounds stuning views. The rooms are lovely. The whole place is of old and very well kept. We were well cared for after our long motorcycle ride. The owner even took us to a resturant and collected us for no extra charge. Definately going back.

After traveling in Spain for 3 weeks, we needed some down time before touring Portugal. We had a wonderful time recharging at Quinta De Mata. The staff was amazing and very accommodating. It really is a family friendly environment. I felt at home. My two boys enjoyed the pool and grounds. I loved the stone house and history behind it.

This is the type of place you just won't want to leave! We arrived on a chilly, rainy night to a fire in the fireplace and 2 glasses of port. The "wow" moments began immediately! Quinta Da Mata felt like home right away with the warm reception from the owners. They make you feel like family. The setting is beautiful... More

Guests are encouraged to try any fruit that is in season and it has it's own spring water. Rooms are furnished in style with the surroundings and the original doors and... More

The Casa is situated on a hill overlooking the town of Chaves. We were greeted by the owner with a glass of wine. The owner speaks a little English, though his wife does not, though we did communicate in French - not a criticism, just makes asking about the local specialities we were served a little more difficult! The room... More

Truly one of the more remarkable places on earth. Time stops when you drive into the long granite driveway. The sound of happy birds and running water soothed my soul. The view is incredible. Ask to have a meal prepared with a bottle if wine... Wow. There is nice pool with a great view. Host/ owner couldn't be more charming.

A perfect stay away from the hub bub of the city. Very rural but the rooms / bed / bathroom were as comfortable as city living. Very impressed with the accommodations...the restoration of the building was beautifully done. Great breakfast (try the Chaves pastries - yum!) Service was great...very personable! Will absolutely recommend and stay again!

After a very long road trip from Santander we arrived at Quinta da Mata to be greeted by the owner of this charming establishment set high above Chaves, with amazing views. We were shown to our room which was delightful and given a lovely glass of port and homemade biscuits. He recommended a restaurant a bit further up the mountain... More
