Nature and the will to welcome
In 1994 they were packing for Australia, when they "stumbled" in Matinha. They fell in love with this lost valley in the opulent green of Serra do Cercal. The scent of the sea, the shade of the trees and the tracks carefully carved like lines in the palm of your hand.
While the kids became men, they fed with the same spoon and the same seasoning the idea of making this their home, built with the seeds they sow in the ground. The mother, already dedicated to tourism and her father, a painter and chef by vocation, welcomed the first guests with candlelights, because in the absence of electricity they had love and will to spare.
More than 20 years later, the Estate has grown and extends over 110 hectares of cork oak and pinewood. The old Houses of the Lavrador, the Vacaria and the Barn were restored to create the main house and the 22 rooms of singular decoration, where silence is a rare luxury that must be listened to. With time.
