Quintinha Mojud is situated on the Algarve West Coast, north of the village Rogil in the Costa Vicentina Nature Park. From the property it´s about 5-10 minutes walk on the hiking trail into the village of Rogil with bars, restaurants, shops and a farmacy. A walk through fields and pine forests brings you in about 30-40 minutes to the next beach ( 2,5-3 km). The town of Aljezur is about 5 kms south, Lagos a bit more than 30 kms away and the region of Alentejo starts not far north of here. Rogil has 2 main beaches with good access plus several little coves here and there.
Beaches are sandy, sometimes interrupted by rocks and not crowded, even in summer. The coastline shows sometimes spectacular rock formation. There are hiking trails on the cliff tops and in the pine forests. The Rota Vicentina Hiking Trail passes directly in front of Quintinha Mojuds gate. Get out of the property and start enjoying the walks. Also bicycle rides are great. Flat land around Rogil or hilly terrain towards the Serra de Monchique.
Cows are grazing on the land and herd of goats are today here and tomorrow there guarded by their owner. Dunes are flowering in spring and early summer.
Some more impressions
The next bigger town is Aljezur, where you´ll find a big supermarket, a big market hall, a cute historic center and fantastic view from the castle. It has some marvellous beaches too, one of it with a river coming in and dunes in the back, great especially for small kids. For all surf lovers and the ones wanting to get a first taste of it: there are many beaches with a great possibility to surf and surf schools to help you getting the knack of it. I will help you with the connection.
The South coast is only 20 minutes drive away with many shopping possibilities, the marina of Lagos, dofin watching and many different boat and sailing tours
