Geocache Description:


- Rich Man, Poor Man-

Quinta da Marinha (Cascais)

First came the vision...
When Carlos Montez Champalimaud, grandfather of the present family owners bought Quinta da Marinha in the early 1920’s, he envisaged the creation of a residential estate of exception quality.

In those years, exiled European royalty were starting to built their houses at Estoril.
Then, Cascais was a small fishing village and the wild coastline of rocks and beaches stretched uninhabited to Cabo da Roca – the most westerly point of Continental Europe.

Soon the creation began...
Carlos Champalimaud planted forests and with rare foresight started the process of stabilising the sand dunes.

He tired the leading English architects – Cacket and Burns – to prepare the first urban plan of Quinta da Marinha for the village council os Cascais. Subsequently, roads were opened up and a few houses built when in 1937 Carlos Champalimaud died.

The carrying philosophy of the family for Marinha has remained although the plans have matured with years. Golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools and the equestrian centre – not considered in the 1920’s are part of the community of today. Carlos Champalimaud’s vision of a carefully planned estate of the highest quality, developed whilst respecting the natural environment is now being realised.

Making money entails a lot more than predicting which way the stock or bond markets are heading or trying to figure which stock or fund will double over the next few years. For the great majority of investors, making money requires a plan, self-discipline and desire.

Find this cache and try to figure out how they did it. If you find out, let me know.
