Photos and Description of this 14 bedroom holiday villa in Sintra area - Morada do Sol Ocean Villas

Villa rentals in 5000m2 property, near Guincho beach, Cascais, Lisbon & Sintra.

Morada do Sol is a large, enclosed property, in a rural setting near Cascais, 3km from Guincho beach. It is only 4km to the motorway, making Lisbon accessible in less than 30 minutes. Cascais and Sintra are just 10 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 among the beauty and tranquility of nature but with all you might want close by. There is ample secure parking inside the property. Within the large private grounds you will find a ball games area, swings, many secluded corners and peaceful rural and sea views.

Morada do Sol has two villas in its grounds which can be let as 4 independent units. All units have their own separate access, living room, kitchen and outside space.

We can cater for groups from 2 to 30 people at Morada do Sol.

For more information visit our website.

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.

Licensed member of Lisbon Tourism Board: Morada do Sol is a member of 'Turismo de Lisboa', part of Portugal’s official tourism board, which promotes quality licensed accommodation in the Lisbon area. Guests can therefore rest assured this is a bona fide quality rental property, and that safety standards are abided to. Morada do Sol is the only holiday rental self-catering property to be fully licensed with the 'Turismo de Lisboa' in the Cascais area.

Surfing and bodyboard holidays: We are only 3km from the world famous Guincho beach which has optimum conditions for surfing, and we have one if the best surfing shops in our village; there is a good surfing and body board school in Guincho beach where you can improve your skills or equipment can be rented.

This secluded, tranquil and private 5000m2 estate is fully fenced in and reached through automatic gates leading to a beautiful pine tree driveway. All units in the estate are well maintained and comfortable. The relaxed 'rural chic' atmosphere provides the ideal setting to recharge your batteries and enjoy the simpler pleasures of life.

Morada do Sol can be rented on an exclusive basis to host events such as 'zen' days, retreats, private parties, and corporate team building.

Every group is personally welcomed and given an insight of the area, tips and recommendations. We can offer additional services on request, such as massage, meal preparation, 'take-home-chef' and additional cleaning. Retreats can also be arranged.

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

amazing villa, excellent staff

  • 5 of 5

16 people came for the UK to stay for the weekend on a company outing. The villa was amazing and is perfect for big groups. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in getting us around and recommending places to visit and eat. They really took care of us and made our stay very special. I would recommend the wine tasting at the local vineyard. Highly recommended.

Wonderful property, happy to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We've been at the Morada del Sol house for a week now (staying another week) and it's been wonderful. The 10 of us are a group of European entrepreneurs, all having businesses on or around the internet.

The house is clean, well maintained and cosy furnished. It's a playful and comfortable house, which makes it a pleasure to reside in. The view from the living room is sublime, and the garden is a good place for relaxing.

During our stay we've visited Lisbon, the old city of Sintra and I've walked and cycled a bit in the country side. The coast is about half an hour away by foot, and there's shops in the area, which make it a convenient place to use as a home base for further exploring of the area.

I'd recommend the property for any small group for a business retreat, and it could fit a family just as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it is so encouraging when guests take the time to share their great experiences. This is the second Entrepreneur's Retreat in Cascais at Morada do Sol, and more are planned as the feedback is excellent, and also companies small retreats and facilitated brainstorming sessions; we now have a good structure with very high speed internet in and out of the house, and are planning more equipment in terms of virtual office facilities. We have established good protocols with the local accelerators and incubators to facilitate networking. The area is great for the perfect work-life balance getaway, with plenty to do for everyone at close range.

Beautiful Estate. Wonderful Retreat. Exceptional Service!

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune to stay at Morada do Sol recently with a group of 24 people for a very meaningful spiritual holiday. We visited to Cascais for a Buddhist Festival with over 7000 people from 59 countries. I began my search for lodging 9 months in advance and quickly decided on Morada do Sol. We were an unusual group in that many of us didn't know each other and were coming from different parts of the world. Word got out quickly that I had rented a Villa and before you knew it, the rooms were full. From the very beginning of my communications with Sol Domus (the rental agency) they were more than accommodating and extremely patient with my many questions and unique needs. They made my journey so easy in the way they organized the house, created floor plans, found my group a driver for airport pick-up and daily shuttle, ordered and programmed a local phone for my use, delivered fresh towels mid-way through our stay, greeted us in person, made sure everyone in my group had a key, walked us through the important details of this property and, had a wonderful cake and tea for our arrival!

I felt like I was visiting lifelong friends and well, I guess after our 200+ email exchanges we did kind of get to know each other a bit. :-)

The estate itself was immaculately kept and very spacious. Always a place to be alone if you so desired. The large, atrium enclosed pool was a great escape from the rain and cold but was wrong time of year for swimming. Several of us did use it however for a cozy meditation spot and for yoga.

The main house we stayed in, Monte e Mar had so many wonderful and unique characteristics it reminded me of something Gaudi might have lived in if he were still alive today. Lots of curves, warm woods, comfortable Indonesian style furnishings and beautiful panoramic views! And the kitchen! Well of course, this is where we hung out the most. It was easy for several people to be cooking at once while others kept us entertained....and of course the fact that it spilled onto the alfresco dining area right outside it's door.

In short, my time at Morada do Sol was a magical and memorable event. I can think of so many great uses for this property like a Wedding! Or a Yoga retreat! Or a family reunion! Or a Corporate Meeting event! Whatever the reason for your stay Cascais, if you stay here you are definitely in the right place and in good hands. I'm already looking for excused to go back!

Great house and location for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there with family and friends at the end of August and we had an excellent time. In fact, I was getting married in Cascais and the estate was perfect as we were all able to stay within the same complex.The agency was great to deal with, and no request was too difficult for them. The house was very well kept and spacious. Although, it is a drive to Cascais it is easy to get a bus or even a taxi and there is a small town within walking distance with everything you would need. The outside area was very well maintained and it was fantastic to have a private pool, barbecue and outside eating area. Also, they organised outside caterers for us on one of the nights and the serivce and food was amazing. Overall, I would highly recommend Morada de Sol and we are all still hoping to return, perhaps for our wedding anniversary!

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.

Ruben, one of your hosts, is a single-figure handicap and has 20 years experience in the local courses. Ruben can give you precious tips on every course and help you plan a memorable golfing experience.
