My grandfather came to Quinta do Chocalhinho in 1942. I have so many happy memories of this place that, in 2006, I decided to honour his work by opening the farm doors to the world. Here we share the history of my family and of this place that is an open invitation to resting amidst Nature.

Quinta do Chocalhinho is a real Alentejo “monte”. The houses keep the traditional design, with whitewashed walls, baseboards painted blue, and doors and windows stretching alongside the cobblestones of this farm.

We have three types of accommodation. The five one-bedroom (T1 + 1) apartments are named after each one of our grandchildren: Margarida, Pedro, Luís, Vitória, and João. They’re independent lodgings designed to accommodate the whole family, and they all have a view of the garden and the pool, as well as an exclusive courtyard to enjoy the natural scenery as much as possible. The houses are equipped with a kitchenette, a living room with a sofa and TV, and private bathroom.

In addition to the houses, we have double and twin bedrooms. Like the other type of accommodation, these ten bedrooms have a private bathroom, TV, minibar, and Internet access. We like to use some décor items that reflect our time in other countries, especially in Asia, but without forgetting the more regional pieces.

Outside, the magnificent garden invites you to relax. Here you have a saltwater swimming pool, a tennis court, and a playground. This is the right place to feel life happening around you, in Nature, with this backdrop of hills and valleys of cork trees and olive trees stretching all the way to the horizon. We invite you to discover the natural nooks in the 70 hectares of farmland, that you can explore through trails and marked paths used by the locals for many years. While hiking, you’ll be surprised by the traces of animal life, and it’s on these trails that you’ll find the best view of the house.

Animals are also a calling card of the farm, especially our five donkeys on which our younger guests can ride. Our organic garden has been a successful project, and we try to use it as the source of the largest number of ingredients possible to enrich our breakfast. Curiously, many parents ask us to take their children to the vegetable garden so they can see where products they typically only see in the supermarket actually come from.
