Alex Gregory - MBE Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist from 2012 and 2016

I’ve spent a lot of time at Herdade da Cortesea over the years, I’ve loved every minute. It’s a place that has always felt like home.

Everything works together to create an environment truly perfect for an athlete to train and perform. The location, water, gym, hotel, restaurant, staff and chefs allow for working hard and optimum recovery.

Many World and Olympic medals have been forged from time spent there, it’s a truly special place.

Herdade da Cortesia is not only my favourite training location anywhere in the world; it is also a home away from home. The outstanding staff go above and beyond their jobs to get every detail perfect. My Olympic preparations were finalized here, and it really made a difference.

Herdade da Cortesia is high performance.

A stay at Herdade da Cortesia is a wonderful experience. It has everything I need: lots of water for rowing, comfort to rest and spectacular cuisine. I won the World Cup in Lucerne right after spending a season at the hotel.
