Vale da Mata is the name given to the land at the foothill of Serra de Aire, sloping down from Senhora do Monte till the Lis River. It lies between the woods from which by-products were cut up and used as floor coating in yards and barns, and the valley adjacent to the river.

The land takes up a few thousand meters, and the soil is very steep and stony, therefore difficult to work; yet, it is protected to the north and exposed to the sun at the end of the day.
