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, swings and sauna all year round.
