Aldeia da Mata Pequena is a small rural village, with a dozen houses, situated barely 30 minutes from the city of Lisbon.
It is located within the Special Protection Area of Penedo do Lexim, an extinct volcano where there is an important archaeological site.
The combination of technical knowledge and respect for the past has resulted in a careful and balanced restoration.
Traditional materials have been used: stone, lime mortar, poplar, cedar and pine timber work, barrel roof tiles, stone flooring, wood-fired floor tiles, lime-washed walls...
These solutions, besides ensuring the aesthetic harmony of the group of buildings, guarantee a high level of comfort.
Traditional outbuildings such as hen houses, wells, pens, pigsties, and dovecots… have been preserved, as well as ovens, salting tubs, stone counters, and other details.
The houses have been decorated to the same exacting standards, capturing the spirit of times past.
