Solar de Magoito is a unique place of leisure and well-being. Located in the Sintra/Lisbon coast and set within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

Magoito is a village located on Sintra's coast : Magoito is a small village located on Sintra’s coast and within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. 10km away from Sintra’s historic center (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Sintra’s coast is characterized by a wood vegetation of Mediterranean Stone-pine. The strong patch of these tree canopies, seen from a high point, dazzles by his imposing green close to the blue of the sea.

Its closeness to the capital (Lisbon), to the enchanting Cascais town and near the romantic Sintra (UNESCO World Heritage Site) makes possible an endless activities program. From the inexhaustible historical patrimony, (palaces, castles, museums, etc.), to the fantastic program of artistic and sport events taking place throughout the whole year between Sintra/Cascais/Lisbon, Magoito is without doubt a place of enchantment.

Solar de Magoito: From Solar de Magoito comes in sight, on the horizon, the contour of Sintra’s Mountain with the Pena Palace on top. This palace’s park has a fantastic and exuberant flora with species from the various continents of the globe.

This coast’s beaches are followed by magnificent cliffs of sedimentary rock formations. Magoito is located in the North zone of this littoral, enjoying a dazzling view of all the beaches that extend to Cabo da Roca (Continental Europe’s westernmost point). The Lisbonians, from the beginning of the twentieth century, and most recently the international tourism, elected this region as a holiday destination.

The mild climate, the very rich flora, the fantastic beaches, the regional gastronomy and closeness to the distinct geographical and cultural realities of the Sintra/Cascais/Lisbon - gold triangle - makes this a delightful area for those who visit it.

Great property for recreative holidays

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 families with 11 people inklusive kids. It was a amazing time in a really beautiful location. The listed description of the property correlated perfect regarding the location. Everything was very clean and well-maintained with much love of detail. Manuel as owner did a great job and was very helpful with a lot of useful tips. At this time I would thank Manuel for a great time. Thanks for all and all the best!

Wonderful villa and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of July. It is a perfect venue for a holiday with mixed aged groups and interests, we were 8 people aged 14 to 80 yrs in the main house. Beautiful spacious garden, great pool, well maintained tennis court. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. The pool house was great, with its own kitchen.. The villa is situated within an easy walk to the centre of the village with cafes bars and a couple of excellent small shops., some of us hiked on the nearby well- marked paths, we did a bit of site- seeing. Manuel was very helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Stunning luxury villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 10, including young children, and stayed here for a week. We booked the main manor house and the two annexes. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are amazing and finished to a high standard so no-one feels like they have the poor room. It has a really well equipment kitchen. The grounds are fabulous, secure, extensive and well maintained.

We particularly loved the pool area and pool house, spending a lot of our time there. It is well laid out to accommodate everyone's requirements.

The location was great as we could get to the beach easily and some went off for trips to Sintra and Lisbon. The area is residential with a local supermarket, shops and cafes.

Manuel was helpful, very friendly and easily contactable.

We all absolutely loved our stay and would recommend it to other families or groups of friends.

It surpassed our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Manuel was excellent. Helpful and friendly.

The property is bigger than it looks in the photos, there's loads to do (table tennis, tennis, pool, plunge pool, pool table, BBQ), and loads of space. Plus a stunning beach just about walkable, and the little town with all the necessities easily walkable. Unfortunately we were only there for 3 days, I wish it was a week. Everything is fitted out really well for large groups of any age, it's so flexible.

Thank you Manuel, for an unforgettable weekend.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here with my family and had one of the most memorable vacations we have had. Manual was the perfect host, helping us to plan each day's activities and suggesting the best places to eat. The estate is marvelous! I was very impressed with how well everything is kept up. The main house is phenomenal with each room having beautiful decorative tile and updated bathrooms. The pool and pool house were perfect rendezvous points for afternoon appetizers/wine and evening dinners. The outdoor barbecue next to the pool house kitchen is great! The beach (3 minutes away) was absolutely breathtaking. Many days we watched the sunset from there. We also gathered over ten pounds of mussels there and ate them during our stay. The location is perfect for day trips-- Lisbon 45 min, Sintra 15 min, Cascais 40 min, Evora 1.5 hrs, etc. Be sure to take Manuel up on his suggestions. He said Portugal had very nice people, great food, and fabulous cheap wine. He was correct on all accounts!

The perfect family reunion venue

  • 5 of 5

The fact that the estate is so large and the accommodation is well spread out means that everyone has some privacy while enjoying the group activities of pool, tennis and billiards together. The rooms are clean and well furbished and Manuel is always available to assist if you have any needs. His advice about the area was invaluable and made our stay even better. I would not hesitate to recommend this property for a large family reunion such as ours.
