Carbon-neutral holidays: Morada do Sol is committed to preserving the beautiful Sintra- Cascais National Park in which it is located: a tree is planted for every booking through the Oxigénio initiative run by the local municipality. Guests receive a certificate dedicated to the person of their choice; during their stay they can visit the plantation area and get involved with the initiative if they wish. This is the perfect way to offset carbon emissions during the holiday, and feel you are contributing to a greener future.
The large, covered pool means the water is warm enough for you to swim from April to November although you are free to use it all year round; sliding doors allow you to catch a cooling breeze in the summer months. The extensive and well-kept gardens with their grand pine tree drive and many areas and spaces of different character have wonderful displays of colour for most of the year and the mature palm trees provide delightful summer shade. Help yourself to fresh tomatoes, lettuces, apples, pears, lemons, oranges, figs and pomegranates from the orchard and vegetable garden, all biologically produced.
In winter, relax by a log fire and contemplate the view down a green and unspoilt valley to the sea, or the mystical Sintra hills behind. Enjoy the outdoor ball games area and swings.

I am Italian and lived in Italy, Portugal, England and Hong Kong. We purchased this property when we returned to Portugal as a life project. When the children went to university in England Morada do Sol became too big for us and we decided to let it exclusively to tourists so that more people could enjoy it the way we did.

Très bon séjour dans la villa géranium ! Accueil de qualité et de bon conseil. La villa est très propre, bien équipée et la décoration est chaleureuse. Le parc est magnifique et le site calme. La piscine est superbe, il est fort dommage qu'elle ne soit pas chauffée pour en profiter hors saison. Nous avons fait nos courses au SPAR à proximité : l'accueil est très chaleureux. Nous sommes allés à Cabo da Rocca, avons visité le magnifique palais de Pena à Sintra, avons profité de Lisbonne : la tour de Belem, le tram n°28, l'Alfama,le centre ; visite de l'Océanorium très appréciée par nos 3 enfants et bain de Soleil sur les belles plages de Cascais et Estoril ... Nous conservons un souvenir enchanteur de notre séjour et avons beaucoup apprécié le contact chaleureux avec les portuguais rencontrés.
