About us

Ever wanted to leave the rat race, pull up sticks and move for health and well-being? Paula, from Portugal, and Marc, from Belgium, decided it was time to do so and so moved from their home of 15 years in Luxembourg. The perfect location? This venerable group of buildings, like a small village, in the Algarve. Three houses, connected by walkways, renovated by their owners since their arrival mid-2012.

‘Cochicho’ is Paula’s mother’s maiden name. Abandoned by her mother despite the Portuguese tradition of two surnames, the name has now been reestablished, in bricks and mortar, for future generations. Another thoughtful connection to the property is the choice of logo – a chameleon. This creature is an endangered species with a small habitat in this region of the Eastern Algarve.  Several families live around the property.

The farm has many fruit and other trees. It is therefore very green and quiet. We chose a chameleon for the Quinta logo because we have several families of chameleons living in the farm. We also have chickens of various breeds, ducks, 2 cats and 1 dog.
