Carbon-neutral holidays: Morada 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 lemons, oranges, figs and pomegranates from the orchard, 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.

About Morada do Sol
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.
Morada do Sol purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Morada do Sol chose Parish of Alcabideche

Perfect week end in mirada do sol !
we were a group of 17 friends so i had a big pressure ! but we found all that we need in this fantastic villa. We passed an excellent week, spending much time in this crazy garden in front of the swimming pool (hot! so nice). the outside area is excellent.
moreover all the rooms were confortable, the kitchen was very functional and the landscape with a the view on the ocean is nice nice nice !
we 've all enjoyed this moment and really shared good moments.
thanks to the proprietary which was very sympatic and permitted us to organize this trip in the best ways
For the second time an amazing experience!
I came for the second time to Morada do Sol with a group of 10 freelancers and entrepreneurs to work from this remote beautiful place. It was a great experience once again. The house and the whole property are beautiful and very unique. You can definitely trust the pictures. If you like the outdoors, this place is for you. From the property you can go on beautiful hiking tours with breathtaking views of the Atlantic coast.
Since we came to the Morada do Sol to also work from there, the internet connection was very important for us. The wifi worked fine even with 10 people connected and we could even use fast mobile routers that we were provided with. This is great if you want to use the beautiful garden as an outdoor work place.
In general you can 100% rely on the friendly, helpful and service-oriented Sol Domus team behind the property. They helped us with every question we had - from tips for restaurants and free time activities to the organization of appointments with the local entrepreneur organizations. Thanks again for the brilliant support! I am looking forward to come back in autumn 2014!
Will come again
This was our third time at Morada do Sol, and second visit this year. As ever, it was sheer bliss. We were a mixed group of 12 adults and children this summer and virtually lived in the pool when we weren’t at the beach or walking the cliff top paths from the village via Abano, or from Cabo da Rocha to Praia Grande and back with a delicious fish lunch at the restaurant on the beach at Adraga by way of reward. The children could tire themselves out on the hard court football pitch, whilst we relaxed over a BBQ on the terrace outside Casa Grande, enjoying the views, the tranquility and the rich pleasure of Portuguese wine. The twin cottages that make up Casa Grande are tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Since we were last there, they have been completely renovated and have six bedrooms and an extra bathroom with Jacuzzi. There was plenty of room for all and the extensive grounds of Morada do Sol are a delight.
We returned for a late autumn golfing holiday; passes to the top courses in the area arranged by Morada do Sol. This time we were just adults – seven couples – and took over Villa Monte e Mar and Meninos. The weather was mostly good, but the new air conditioning in heater mode took the chill off the evenings, and the live fire in the living room was a real attraction after dinner when we ate at home or had a nightcap or two after dining out in Cascais or the village. (Morada do Sol can be relied on for restaurant recommendations!). Confession: we were too idle to cook for ourselves and so took advantage of the maid’s home cooking; she has a range of dishes from which to select, delivered the next morning ready for the microwave! There is more space than at Casa Grande but either option would have worked well – the log fire was the decider.
We had a really good time.The estate is very well maintained, the garden is beautiful and there is plenty of space giving it a relaxing yet welcoming ambiance. Indoors, the fireplace and air conditioning saved us from the temperate weather conditions. Not to mention the covered pool meant the water was never too cold, and we could use it both in the morning and evening! The surrounding town is charming and only 3km from the stunning Guincho beach. It is in the perfect location for exploring Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra, which meant we did a lot of sightseeing!
Thank you for everything! We hope to see you soon

The village of Malveira da Serra is less than five minutes walk away, with shops and good restaurants. It retains its traditional charm, and has long been sought after by wealthy Portuguese and international property owners due to the beauty of its setting, with the coast stretched out below, and the forest and mountain above. This is an ideal place for nature lovers, being in the Sintra-Cascais natural park where building is very restricted. There is good walking from the village, with an abundance of wild flowers, birds and animals. Guincho beach, world renowned for its surfing, is 3 km away. Sintra, a world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying ravishing views is a lovely 15 minute drive across the mountain. The coastal resort of Cascais is 10 minutes away, where you will find superb beaches, restaurants, night-life and shopping, as well as a charming old town with rewarding site seeing. The centre of Lisbon is 30 minutes by car. Golf: Six of Portugal’s best golf courses are within a fifteen minute drive, offering new and surprising landscapes, along with first class services and facilities. Portugal is a golfer’s paradise where it is possible to play almost every day of the year, with plenty to offer both beginners and advanced players. There are six courses within a 8 km (5 mile) range, with plenty to offer beginner and advanced players. Oitavos Golfe, Quinta da Marinha, Penha Longa, Estoril, Beloura and Estoril-sol are all first rate courses within a quarter of an hour. There are a further 11 courses within an hour’s drive.
