Aldeia da Mata Pequena

When you first see the authentic cottages at Aldeia da Mata Pequena, it is difficult to believe this was a ruin just a couple of years ago. When Ana and Diogo stumbled upon the weathered village, it was love at first sight. Diogo is a restorer by profession and his imagination was triggered right away. To bring the town back to its original state and covert it to a rural holiday destination; it became their new goal in life. And they've done it! Walking up the stone steps, you’d think the cottages have always been there, proud and beaming in the green landscape.

Each cottage is unique and I walked around with amazement in my eyes. One is made of natural stone, the next plastered in white with blue or yellow details. Wooden windows with shutters are surrounded by elegant bougainvilleas while the surrounding green and golden hills brighten the scene. Ana had spotted me and approached with a glass of port. She showed me around the cottages. Each one was decorated with love, with antique furniture collected from friends in the area and some of them even stemming from their own childhood. I could listen to Ana’s stories about this place for hours. Their unique holiday location brings the past to life.

We went back outside and I took a deep breath while gazing into the landscape in front of me. The air is so fresh and clean. ‘Isn’t it beautiful’, Ana said. ‘This view just never gets old’. I was in for a magnificent holiday...

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.
