Welcome to Monte das Matas!

Monte das Matas is located in the rustic province of Alentejo, close to the Spanish border. It is beautifully situated at the shore of the Alqueva lake, the largest reservoir in Europe and lies a mere kilometer away from the medieval town of Monsaraz.

The region offers a beautiful, quiet area to explore: during your visits to picturesque villages, the old forts, hiking by foot or on horseback through the natural beauty you will feel as if you've stepped into a different world. The climate is dry and warm, the sky is blue and during the night there is no other place on earth where you'll find starry skies as clear as these (recognized by UNESCO).
