About Joao Cortez

I'm a computer engineer with a passion for sailing and the sea. For professional reasons, now I live in Lisbon and this property is my weekend house.

Joao Cortez purchased this villa in 1996

Why Joao Cortez chose Nadadouro

A handmade washinbasin, that I found in my grandfather's house was the center and the beggining of this project which evolved and incorporated the result of my passion for the beach, the sun and the smell of the freshness sea. I always imagined my dream house near the beach but in a quiet environment, with big social areas to give a party and share it with my family and friends, with enought bedrooms to acommodate my family in Christmas, with a big basement to park my cars, my boat and my motorbike, with a wine sellery to disfrute a good red wine contempling the sunset at sea. Swimgold is all this and much more.

What makes this villa unique

Big areas with amazing lagoon and sea views. The possibility of surfing with the best world surfers is a reality, as we are between Peniche world surf tour beach and Nazare big waves. The sailing school is about 10 minutes walking, where you can rent an hobby cat, or take some kite surf lessons in the calm lagoon waters.

Perfect week! Hard to imagine how it could have been better.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in early August at Swimgold with 10 members of our extended family. We were met when we arrived by Michel, the owners representative, who was very helpful and made settling in easy and was available during our stay to answer questions or offer recommendations. The airy open floor plan comfortably accommodated everyone and the pool/patio area overlooking Lagoa de Obidos was the perfect place for morning coffee or sunset cocktails. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area large enough that we were able to enjoy home-cooked meals together as a large group. Though in a neighborhood of similar homes, the house is situated to afford occupants privacy while also being close to the fabulous beach and charming village of Foz de Arelho. Swimgold served as an excellent base camp for sightseeing. It is within easy reach of Obidos (a must see!) and the monastery at Batalha or exploring the countryside and nearby national park. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can easily recommend it to others.

Grosses Haus, gute Lage, Einrichtung veraltet

  • 2 of 5

Das Haus bietet reichlich Schlafplätze, die Lage ist schön mit tollem Blick auf die Lagune und das Meer. Die Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und es gab ein Korb, gefüllt mit den nötigsten Lebensmitteln.

Leider waren wir sehr enttäuscht von der Einrichtung. Es roch alles muffig, die Möbel sind sehr veraltet und wir mochten uns im Haus kaum aufhalten. Insgesamt war alles sehr abgewohnt. Auch die Terrasse und die Bepflanzung könnten mal wieder aufgefrischt werden. Schade, wir hatten von der Seite mehr erwartet.

Séjour au Portugal

  • 4 of 5

Très grande villa, très agréable, située dans un quartier calme.

Les propriétaires sont charmants , disponibles et à l écoute.

La vue sur la lagune est surprenante car elle change tous les jours en fonction des marées.

Plusieurs services sont compris dans la location (jardinier, pisciniste, dames de ménage) et cela rend le séjour encore plus agréable durant les vacances!!

Nous avons visité Obidos, Peniche, Nazaré, Lisbonne, Alcobaca...

Nous conseillons fortement cette location où nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances :)
