CostaTerra Golf & Ocean Club, located in the beautiful region of Comporta along Portugal’s Blue Coast, will celebrate the rich cultural history of the region and enhance the natural beauty of the Southern coastline. The 295-hectarecommunitywill have 292 residences and keep 65 hectares as preserved land. Working with the European Union’s Natura 2000 Program, the property will protect the pristine coastline and preserve the wild pine forests, dramatic ancient dunes and colorful heartland. CostaTerra is located just over one hour from Lisbon and its international airport, and ideally positioned in the heart of the Alentejo coastwith1.2kilometres of beachfront.

Founded in 1994 by Mike Meldman, Discovery Land Company takes a low-density, environmentally sensitive approach to community planning, with each property designed to provide best-in-class residences, amenities and services all focusing on families spending quality time together in a safe, peaceful setting.

“We have looked at a number of opportunities in Europe for many years now,” said Michael Meldman, founder and CEO of Discovery Land Company. “We are so fortunate to have found this exceptional area in Portugal; itis a true piece of paradise. The pristine beaches, beautiful pine tree forests and overall serenity make it the perfect place for Discovery’s first European property. We look forward to providing ahigh-quality experience for our members while preserving the sacredness of this incredible environment.”

CostaTerra will feature a championship golf course designed by well-known and well-respected veteran golf architects. The course emphasize playability for all ages and abilities. In addition to their stunning designs in some of the most beautiful places on earth, these courses are also luxuriously casual with no dress code and no pre-arranged tee times required, appointed with Discovery’s signature comfort stations. The golf course at CostaTerra is a Tom Fazio design, replete with unparalleled ocean and forest views. This is also Fazio’s first project in mainland Europe. The course is due to be completed in October 2021 with a scheduled opening of April 2022.

CostaTerra has partnered with world renowned interior designer and Portuguese native Alexandra Champalimaud to design the community’s member spaces. Champalimaud is known for creating transformative venues and weaving the heritage and context of a place into the narrative to create beautiful, unparalled interiors.

The heart of CostaTerra will be at the village, which will include fitness, spa, sports and retail facilities, golfclub facilities and several options for dining, including eateries that celebrate local agriculture and the Alentejo wine region through the incomparable farm-to-table culinary program.

The signature concierge activities programme, Outdoor Pursuits, highlights activities native to the region surrounding every community, offering members unique experiences of the area and its culture, in addition to creating memories with family. At CostaTerra, activities include sailing, boating with tours of the Portuguese coast, surfing and other water sports, hiking and horseback riding, including equestrian tours of the ancient dunes along the Blue Coast from the on-site equestrian centre, castle ruins and other areas of historical significance. All programming is coordinated and led by local professionals, and all top-of-the-line gear and safety equipment is provided to members.

CostaTerra’s region Alentejo has been at the heart of Portugal’s wine resurgence over the past few decades. It was even recently dubbed the “Best Wine Region in the World.” The wine heritage dates back to Roman times, and the region’s many excellent independent wineries are renowned for their full-bodied, fruity, easy drinking reds and gentle whites. The property will develop its own small vineyard and winery where members can share in the experience for generations to come. An on-site vintner will help members create their own wines and develop private label versions with grapes from the community vineyard or from the best grapes in the country.

Additionally, CostaTerra will pair the property’s wines with exceptional meals featuring fruits and vegetables harvested straight from the soil of the community’s organic farm, as well as fresh-caught seafood and other locally produced items to showcase the authentic tastes of Portugal’s Blue Coast. The vineyard will have its own area on property with surrounding real estate, making wine country living a reality.
