Lying in a hammock by pool watching monkeys and humming birds while sipping a passion fruit Caipirinha....bliss.
Mata N'Ativa is a set inside the forest, next to a small river. Beautifully designed with a real effort to blend in gives a feeling of tranquility lacking in so many other 'green' pousadas.
The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and surrounding area.
The staff are wonderful and friendly and,trying to be brief, here's a list of the highlights....
-lovely pool for cooling off
-5 minutes walk from the Quadrado (beautiful centre square of Trancoso) so close but far enough to get peace when you need it, unlike some pousadas 'in town'. Need a torch at night or phone with light.
-bike and kayak trips (both recommended) leave from the pousada itself.
-5/10 minutes from the beach which has local and trendy options for bars
-wonderful fresh breakfastMore
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
