The
Experience

This rambling Tuscan-style villa estate is within walking distance of the Sintra Mountains and the wild surf of Guincho Beach. Elegant Cascais with its busy marina and sandy beaches is just down the coast.

The split-level villa can be hired separately or altogether; breakfast is optional – continental or a full English and you may help yourself to the veg garden in season. Your eco-minded host Marcella plants a tree for each booking and can organise pretty much anything from babysitting to in-house catering if you don’t fancy going out for supper. The village is a five-minute walk and has plenty of restaurants and shops.

Several rooms have their own garden entrance, so it’s easy to spill out to the shade of the pines or have a quiet read on the terrace. Cool off in the glass-housed pool before the barbecue begins. Kids will love the football court too.

Reviews

You can have the best of both worlds here. Lazing around in the heart of the countryside, mountain, sea and nature around you with all you need just 5 minutes walk away. A truly restful place.

Marilyn, Sawday's inspector

It is a lovely place to stay, very nice house, nice swimming pool and 10 mins from the beach. I would definitely recommend it.

Paula

We recently rented Morada Do Sol exclusively for our small intimate family wedding. From the moment we found the property we felt very assured with the service we received from the owners and booking agent and everything we put to them without fail was answered and dealt with efficiently. We choose the property due to its scheduled location and for any family group looking for something similar then this is ideal for you. It provides wonderful views a great central place for everyone to eat and enjoy themselves and a great covered pool for children to play in. We would all love to return!

Cheryl, Uk

Organised for a large group of friends coming to visit and the success of the trip was also due to this fantastic venue. The estate is well kept, but also very informal so great for informal socialising. The service was very friendly and efficient and they organise cooking and extras if you want which was useful for our group. I have a property in the same village so will use Morada do Sol again to accommodate friends. Covered pool a great plus for this mid-season. Outside BBQ area great and kitchen really functional. The house has a great homely feel with lots of interesting decorations!

Marja, Netherlands

We were a group of friends organizing a surprise week before marriage for one of us and we spent in Morada do Sol our best week end that we could do! The villa was fantastic and had all the amenities we need. Garden and outside area with barbecue are so nice that we stayed here! Moreover even if the weather wasn't favorable the swimming pool was hot... So, really really excellent for a group!

Location

The neighbourhood

The villa, hidden down a tree-lined drive, feels delightfully rural. The gardens hum with the sound of birds and the sea can be glimpsed in the distance yet Malveira da Serra is less than a five-minute walk. A pretty town packed with places to eat, shops, a chemist, bakery and more. You’re just 30 minutes from Lisbon via the motorway.

Local points of interest from Marcella Franchi

  • Morada do Sol is ideally situated in a rural setting, 6km from cosmopolitan Cascais and Estoril. This is an ideal location for nature lovers, being in the Sintra-Cascais protected Natural Park.
  • The restful view looks down a green and unspoilt valley with the sea in the far distance in one direction, and the mystical Sintra mountains in the other.
  • The village of Malveira da Serra is less than five minutes walk away, with a range of shops and restaurants. The village retains its traditional charm.
  • Sintra, a world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying ravishing views is a lovely 15 minute car drive across the mountain.
  • Less far in the other direction is the coastal resort of Cascais, where you will find superb beaches, restaurants, night-life and shopping, its marina, a casino, as well as a charming old town with rewarding site-seeing.
  • Lisbon is half an hour away; a number of other world class cultural and historic sites make an enjoyable day trip.The summer brings international festivals; classical music and ballet in Sintra, jazz in Estoril and fireworks in Cascais.

Introducing

Marcella Franchi

Marcella is half Portuguese and half Italian. After her children grew up and left home she decided the property was too big to live in alone so she moved to Cascais and started running the place as a B&B, a member of her staff will greet you, although you will meet Marcella during your stay.
