Retiro do Mocho


Retiro do Mocho is a project located in the heart of Vicentina Coast, on Rogil seaside, near Aljezur.

The owners, Marta and Ricardo, used part of their own house – the old arramada, where the animals were kept – and turned it into a cozy retreat house, through a project conceived by Ricardo, a professional architect.

They kept the original structure, made in taipa (mix of mud and gravel) and then created internal divisions with a dedication that can be felt in each detail.

The environment transmits perfect harmony between the richness of the natural and traditional materials and old recovered pieces and others of current craftsmanship works, contemporary and popular art, comfort and aesthetics, all having in common a single principle: simplicity.

With views over the ocean, the little house has all the conditions to host 4 people, whether it is during some nice summer holidays or in a winter weekend, to recharge batteries and relax. Having a heated floor and a salamander stove in the living room to keep it warm, in this house comfort is a kept promise.

Owners say that having a single tourist house allows them to fulfil almost every single desire of their guests …

The goal is truly to let yourself go, and fully seize the rest in absolute pleasure.

The house has a living room with a well equipped kitchenette, a common area and a table for the meals.

The room has two single beds that are convertible into a comfortable king-size bed, for couples.

A stair gives access to a mezzanine space, open to the living room, with a double bed.

In the private terrace you can have your meals or lay on the hammock, read and talk or simply deliver yourself to the countryside rhythms, the sea and the nature.

You may walk to the nearest beaches, by pedestrian paths; taking around fifteen minutes by the traditional dirt roads or a bit more if you walk alongside the cliffs.

If you take one of the available bikes, it will take you ten minutes to reach the beach, which is not farther than 1 km away.
