Rural Tourism Portugal

I am not a travel journalist, nor a fancy, overpaid copywriter. 
I write solely from the heart, having first stayed at mAtinha on my honeymoon in 2001. We went from being guests to friends overnight. That’s what mAtinha does to you i suppose.
You will come across mAtinha in the coastal hinterlands of rural Alentejo, about 150 kms south of Portugal’s capital, Lisboa. The Alentejo is different from say Provence, or Tuscany. Put simply, it is more rustic, more real; more relaxed.

This countryside getaway can be found in the mountain valleys of Cercal do Alentejo, approximately 10 kms from the sea, and is set in 120 hectacres of breathtaking nature. The buildings themsleves are restored shepherds cottages, barns and cattlesheds, all extended into 2 separate bulidings. These buildings are an original mixture of wood, stone and masonry. On most walls hang the canvasses painted by Alfredo, as much an artist as he is chef. These paintings help make H d M truly unique.
