Quinta dos Cochichos is a family owned farm, created to promote environment and nature tourism, as well as to preserve local, traditional and cultural interests in the region of Quelfes.
We offer a comfortable accommodation in natural and peaceful surroundings, framed by a big diversity of fruit and exotic trees spread over 1,5 hectares of land. You will feel in perfect community with nature while you walk, watch the starry nights or relax at the pool. It is a perfect place to enjoy the simplicity of nature, together with family or friends.
Each apartment, or house (Portuguese “casa”), is named after a typical fruit from Algarve. We have Casa do Figo, Casa da Alfarroba and Casa da Nespera.
At Quinta dos Cochichos (Cochichos Farm), you can use our 8-shaped swimming pool, use our sauna or just sit and relax in the green, quiet surroundings.
Cochichos Farm is about 20 minutes away from Faro´s International Airport and only a few minutes away from the town of Olhão, with plenty of restaurants, cafés, supermarkets and a shopping center. Olhão has an old market, which is considered to have the biggest choice of fish and shellfish of the whole Algarve. It is well worth a visit!
In this region, there are various activities you can enjoy during your holidays, from horse riding or bicycling to just a simple walk in nature. Of course, a day at the beach should also be in your program - Cochichos Farm is only 5 km away.
Our coast is integrated in the Ria Formosa Nature Park, where you can enjoy taking a boat to visit the several islands with long white sandy beaches. Alternatively, you can swim in the warm-water lagoon in between. This unique environment harbours many resident and migratory birds and offers shelter to other threatened species of fish, like sea horses, and various plants and animals. The lagoon is perfect for small children or to use a kayak.
We have different projects running at the farm and we intend to have our clients participate. We intend gradually to update in our blog with details.
Most of all our intention is to allow our visitors to enjoy nature at it´s best and provide them with a memorable holiday. We welcome you at Quinta dos Cochichos!
