Casa dos Matos offers a harmonious blend of old and new, with a former circular threshing floor, or ‘eira’, providing the link between the family’s accommodation situated in the older part of the property and the new purpose-built guest facilities. The area, whose circular contours have been preserved, has been made into a comfortable lounge and dining room for the use of guests, where meals are served and a blazing log fire adds warmth on winter evenings.
The use of wood and exposed local stone gives a homely and rustic feel to the property, and ensures that it blends in perfectly with the surroundings. Outside, an attractive terrace overlooks the garden and swimming pool and offers splendid views over the nearby limestone hills. The guest bedrooms are simply but elegantly furnished in minimalist style, and adorned with paintings by local artists. Each room is decorated in a different colour, and all have private bathroom, TV and sofa with extra bed. The atmoshphere is very relaxed, homely and close to nature.
Casa dos Matos has 8 double rooms, each with TV and private bathroom, and sofa with extra bed. Each room is decorated in a different colour. An infant cot can be available on request. The house has internet wi-fi connection. A hearty breakfast is served of locally baked bread, home made cakes and jams, fruit juice, and a selection of cold meats and cheeses, or some free-range eggs if you fancy! Tea, coffee, chocolate or an infusion of a an aromatic mixture of local herbs completes the offer. Evening meals are available on request, and we recommend you to try! Emphasis is on freshness and organic produce. The property has central heating for chilly winter evenings, and there is an enormous wood burning stove in the living room which provides both warmth and a cosy atmosphere. There is also a TV and many books and games. Guest are invited to serve themselves from a well-equipped honesty bar, where you can sample from a selection of liqueurs made from local herbs and fruits. Outdoor facilities include a garden with swimming pool, badminton, terrace and bicyles. Rui and Rita will be able to give you assistance and suggestions for many local walks.
