Having been to Portugal a few times, this has to rank as one of my best experiences there. Morada do Sol is a great place to get away and relax, whilst the covered pool and ball court meant there was always something to do outdoors. The 5 minute walk into Malveira da Serra ensures that unlike with other remote retreats, you are not cut off from the world. The staff at Sol Domus were incredibly polite and helpful, they even set up surf rental for me at the amazing Guincho beach (conveniently only a 10 minute drive away). All in all a great experience, and I would highly recommend Morada do Sol to anyone, whether travelling as a family or as a group of friends. My only regret was not getting organised and getting a bigger group of us out there!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Morada do Sol is a large, enclosed property to let on a short term basis, in a rural setting near Cascais, Portugal, at the foot of the Sintra hills, 3 km from Guincho beach. This is an ideal location for nature lovers, being in the Sintra-Cascais protected National Park where building is very restricted. Lisbon and its airport are 30 minutes away. With a large swimming pool and beautiful grounds in a 5000m2 estate, close to the beach and the many attractions of Cascais, Lisbon and Sintra, Morada do Sol offers an ideal setting for a perfect holiday: peace and privacy amongst the beauty and tranquility of nature but with all you might want close by. 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 games area and sauna all year round. Morada do Sol has two villas in its grounds which can be let as 4 independent units. All units have their own private access and outside space. ... more less
