The luxurious Pousada de Estoi, the Estoi Palace, born out of the recovery of an old eighteenth century palace, is located in the village of Estoi only 10 km from Faro. This palace once belonged to Jose Francisco da Silva, Viscount of Estoi, and was opened in 1909. In 1987, it was purchased by the Town Hall of Faro, and in 1977, it was considered a property of Public Interest. A project by architect Goncalo Byrne, this hotel in Faro has a Health Club where you can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. In a region with great gastronomic traditions you can find the Visconde restaurant, one of the Algarvian establishments which include fish and fresh seafood. The whole menu is inspired by Portuguese cuisine and exhibits a genuine form of art for good eating. Don’t miss out on the deserts from Algarve made with figs and almonds grown locally. Experiencing the Pousada de Estoi is a pleasant journey.

The originality of your holidays in Estoi begins immediately with its location. It is in the Algarve which is known to very few, the area of ​​barrocal, between the coast and the mountains, where the temperature is more pleasant and the smell of carob and orange trees fills the air. Arriving at the Inn, you can guess the building from a wide path, but the gate is closed. You see a yellow and pink palace, considered by many as the ultimate expression of romanticism in Algarve.
