“Wonderful place for a break”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A wonderful break on the unspoilt west coats of the Algarve. A real character spot with good accommodation for a family of four, and a most accommodating and hospitable host Ricardo. Spring flowers blooming, and the relaxed vibe of this place is ideal for chilling out or as a break along the various walking trails that pass by the area. Only ten minute walk to spectacular coastal cliffs and bit further to a lovely beach. The region is blessed with a number of picturesque and unspoilt beaches and there is plenty to entertain the nature enthusiast. Thanks Ricardo for the hospitality, warmth and guidance shown while we were there.

Alex, thank you so much for your stay and for this wonderful review. Also thanks for what you all did in my guest book before leaving the house.
It was a great pleasure to host you in my place. You are such a nice family and I could not imagine better than feeling the way you enjoyed your stay. This gives reason to my decision to have a guest house.
Really hope we find the opportunity to meet back one day in the future.
Wish you all the best,
Ricardo

“Adorable rustic farm house near the coast”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Even in the off-season this little house and our host provided an excellent retreat. Richardo greeted us with farm fresh eggs, sweet potatoes (a regional specialty), homemade jam, and loads of oranges. The house is of traditional construction but had a heated floor and modern appliances--so very comfortable. We used the wood stove because we wanted a fire but it was not really needed for heat. The beds were the MOST comfortable we had in 3 weeks of travel around Spain and Portugal. We loved the location too. You can walk to the cliffs/coast in 10 mins. You can follow parts of the the Rota Vicentina trail (which is very well marked) or explore the little towns in the Alentejo region.

“Lovely, Cosy and Relaxed”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our recent stay (March, 2014) at Retiro do Mocho a lot. The house keeps every promise the pictures give. It is a very nice and cosy place to be. It´s remote and quiet, but not far from the next village (Rogil, about 5 min by car).
Ricardo (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. He gave us quite a lot of useful tipps including local markets, local food in general and suggestions for trips in the region.

It´s the perfect place for people who like to spend some relaxed and easy-going days close to the ocean.

Muchas Gracias por la simpatia y por la descripción de la casa y sus alrededores.
Es un hecho, la casa tiene un altillo a 2,5 metros de altura que no es seguro para los niños. Vamos a resolver este problema tan pronto como sea posible.
Hay varios perros cerca de nuestra casa. Ladran mucho cuando pasa un coche o una persona. Es una cuestión territorial. Sin embargo son muy amigables. Muchos de nuestros huéspedes hacen el camino a la playa a pie y pasan los perros cada día y, hasta la fecha, ladran siempre pero nunca ha habido ningún problem. Pero estamos de acuerdo en que puede ser incómodo para la gente teme a los perros.
