You are offered a choice between a mindfulness silence or a uplifting house busting in laughter.
We believe in tourism made creative and experimental by promoting contact with the cultural, social and environmental heritage of the ‘Costa Alentejana’.

Time is yours, so is the choice.
Samadhi is the final limb identified in the Yoga Sutras and is a state of being totally aware of the present moment; a one-pointedness of mind. Visit the ‘Matinha’ to discover a different side to yourself every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 9.30 am. Yoga classes are available for guests and non-guests.
We challenge you to relax and rest your mind to recharge your energy. Hot candle massage, oil massage or hot stone massage in a private wooden house overlooking the verdant valley.
Horse Ridding - A perfect afternoon: Horse riding along the tracks through the valleys of Matinha and a relaxing massage.
We have unique programs for guests and non-guests. We are waiting for you.
Workshops - Horses have an associative memory to stimuli, and therefore they prefer that we are true and pure, in gestures and intentions. This way they read us clearly with no room for second interpretations. That's why horses are the perfect companions for transformational experiences and self-knowledge.
Picnics on the Estate
Let's taste, celebrate and preserve the country side with a picnic. We take care of everything so that you can enjoy nature with those you love.
Sustainable Agriculture
Biological Vegetable Gardens – Life grows in our gardens. Find out the origin of our dishes and what the earth provides us. Here you can pick the scents and flavours that help compose our menu.
Artisanal – The small local producers are the soul of our cuisine. At Matinha you can make cheese from the milk of Senhor Henriques' goats, knead bread with Dona Ercília or learn how to make our "Matinha Blackberry" jam with Dinha.
Sow - Plant a tree with your family or take part in a permaculture workshop and discover nature's cycles. Sow good things in your life.
Matinha is part of Rota Vicentina, a network of walking routes in the Southwest of Portugal that totals 450 km and passes through some of the most beautiful places in the region. If you want to know and discover another side of Portugal, with a cultural, social and environmental heritage untouched by time and by the hand of man, this is your home.
Bike Riding
