The village Chocholná-Velčice is located on the right bank of the middle flow of the river Váh in the Trenčín basin, about 9 km to the southwest of the town Trenčín.  From the northwest the village is protected by the White Carpathians. The cadastre of our village is formed as a narrow stripe spreading from the plain of the Váh up to the border with the Czech Republic.
