The Holiday home

Herdade da Mata is a typical farm near Evora in Portugal Alentejo. Suckler cows grazing with their calves in the open fields, goats, donkeys and many other animals inhabit this idyll.
In the equestrian center our guests can get acquainted with the beautiful, brave Lusitano horses. With our professional riding instructor they can can have riding lessons, enhance riding and horse skills and gain an insight into the daily work in breeding and training these noble horses.
Who wants to know more about the farm operation and about the different endangered breeds that are bred here, can book a guided tour with the owners. Guests can also just leisurely walk on the farm or fish on-farm reservoir and observe the different species of birds, while the children make contact with the various animals and appreciate the freedom in this vast farm.
Unique are also typical of the Alentejo starry nights. One evening on the terrace under the stars with views over the expanse of the farm and its own lake, the sound of the bells of grazing cows and sometimes a Iah call a donkey, time seems to stand still.
This cozy guest house is decorated in the style of the Alentejo. It offers six guests space with three double bedrooms, each with private bath. The living room with fireplace and well-equipped kitchenette, terrace with barbecue, own garden and direct access to the pool to ensure that our guests can enjoy comfortable and their holiday away from the hustle and bustle.
Our friendly staff will take care of all matters relating to the house and prepare breakfast on request and smaller meals.
All in all, an ideal place for riders and non-riders, adults and children of all ages for a unique, relaxing holiday in unspoilt nature, with lots of animals and in a fascinating, gentle countryside of the Portuguese Alentejo.
