Garden and Pool

From the open planned sitting and dining area of Matalva house, doors open out to a wide terrace which is ideal for sitting in the sun or shade of a parasol and admiring the views across the valley.  Up to 10 guests can dine together on this terrace.  On one side there‚Äôs a lawned area and on the other, a gate opens to steps which lead to the pool area on the lower terrace.   The pool is not heated so guests can take a truly refreshing dip in the hot summer months!

Located on a lush hillside with a backdrop of pine forests, the gardens surrounding Quinta da Matalva boast a variety of plants, trees and flowers, including lemon, orange and fig trees.  Our guests are welcome to eat any of our fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables.
