Retiro do Mocho

Retiro do Mocho is a project located in the heart of Vicentina Coast, on Rogil seaside, near Aljezur, and offers accommodation in a charming retreat, close to the Atlantic ocean , in a coastal region of enormous environmental richness rarely found on European coastlines these days.

T he owners used part of their own house – where animals used to be kept – and turned it into a cosy independent apartment, where the harmony of the construction and decoration is present in every detail, through a project conceived by Ricardo, a professional architect.

With views over the ocean, the little house has all the conditions to host four people, providing a living room with kitchenette, a double room and a mezzanine space, open to the living room. The traditional walls built in “taipa” – a mixture of lath and mud -, the heated floor and the salamander stove in the living room, guarantee maximum comfort, and outside, in the private terrace you can have your meals, read and talk, or simply deliver yourself to the countryside rhythms, the sea and the nature. At night you can lose yourself in the stars and allow yourself to be lulled by the sounds of the ocean. The goal is truly to let yourself go, and give in to absolute rest in pleasure.

From the house it is easy to walk or use the bicycle to reach the nearest beaches, some of them only accessible by the fishermen’s trails. Rogil has some restaurants and commerce, but the offer is more interesting in Odeceixe or Aljezur, both around 8 km away.

    It all started with a conversation. The idea of the future, the idea of the House and, later, the idea of receiving guests. How it came into being is unknown, but it was done before they knew it. It was enough just to mention of the “big house” and its history for the project to go ahead, started by Ricardo – architect -author of the final design. Not forgetting the scribbles of his children, João and Joaquim, who were key in designing this “Owl Refugee” (Retiro do Mocho).
