For parties of up to six people looking for beautiful accommodation near the pretty, whitewashed village of Estoi in the sun-soaked Algarve, you may be interested in Casa Mocho…
Sitting within extensive grounds scattered with olives, carob-trees and lofty palms, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom house is designed to blend in with the nature that surrounds it.
Internally, walls made from local stone meet timber and bamboo ceilings, a traditional and rustic look that blends beautifully with the cool terracotta tiles underfoot. Such traditional features contrast tastefully with the villa’s contemporary fittings, including a modern fitted kitchen with an island and modern appliances.
This beautiful country home is named after the Portuguese word for owl – mocho – derived from the owners’ love for the bird, which is evident throughout the property.
The villa is geared towards spending time outdoors and taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds it and enjoying the fabulous weather this part of Portugal basks in virtually all year round, with a spacious covered terrace and a nearby barbecue for those memorable family meals outside.
No villa in the Algarve would be complete without a swimming pool to cool down in and Casa Mocho is home to a large impressive private pool backed by a sun terrace for sunbathing, reading a book or drying off after a dip.
Casa Mocho is just 4km from the whitewashed village of Estoi, home of one of the Algarve’s finest 19th century ‘Rococo’ style palaces. This atmospheric and traditional Algarve town has a relaxed, welcoming vibe, which can be soaked up by wining and dining in the many bars, cafes and open-air restaurants, whilst watching unhurried life go by in this pretty, whitewashed town.
For a greater choice of restaurants, shops and bars, the market town of São Brás de Alportel is 6km from Casa Mocho, another beguiling town to experience traditional life on the Algarve.
