Pousada de Faro, Palácio de Estoi
Estoi is a small village situated between São Brás de Alportel and Faro.
Hidden within the typical Algarvian houses and the floral roads, you will find a Rococo style palace which appears to have been taken straight out of the story books from the times of kings and queens, from enchanted gardens, orange groves and palm trees.
The Estoi Palace was classified in 1977 as a property of public interest.
An old eighteenth century Palace
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 José 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.
The Pousada was conceived with the idea of offering their guests an environment of high quality in the most incandescent area of the country.
Each room in this Pousada is spacious and has all the modern facilities like LCD TV, internet and satellite TV. The rooms on the higher level have their own private balconies from where you can see the Faro city and the ocean.
