This is an absolutely stunning place and a must-go-there-place for anybody looking for a laid-back, authentic and unwinding hideaway. In the middle of almost nowhere, two hours south of Lisbon, Herdade da Matinha and its really most charming and welcoming hosts, Monica & Alfredo, sport a combination to die for: excellent cuisine (Alfredo cooks), a super wine list and an atmosphere that just reeks tranquility and serenity. Loungy with deep couches & shaded daybeds everywhere, a super elegant woody pool, cool jazz playing in the evening and the whole thing surrounded by a most delightful greenery. Also treat yourself to a horseback ride that takes you to some most spectacular views of the surrounding area - and the Atlantic Ocean lying under the sun in the horizon (rode a beautiful, very rideable Haflinger mare). A place you do not want to miss and a place & people you do not want to leave again.
