Pousada Palácio de Estoi

Pousada Palácio de Estoi 5

As a proud member of the ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’ group, Pousada Palacio de Estoi is certainly capable of the ‘wow factor’, its cutting-edge décor blending into 19th-century palatial grounds.

The grand rooftop masonry, mauve stonewashed walls and decked pool area overlooking a handful of ancient pillars leave you under no illusion that a truly intriguing stay awaits while at Pousada Palacio de Estoi. Once a private palace of local renown, the beauty of this 200-year old property lies in its respect for authenticity, history and location, achieved with a firm eye also fixed on 21st-century comforts, the importance of an impeccable pool and chic interior design capable of bringing this renovated building right back to life.

    About Pousada Palácio de Estoi

    If its ideal location were not enough, situated as it is just 10km outside Faro, a few minutes to the ancient Roman ruins of Milreu and a short drive from all the top coastal attractions and resorts, Pousada Palacio de Estoi also offers living history and no shortage of boutique finery. Internationally recognised as providing something ‘a little bit different’, the original main building is home to welcoming communal spaces of chandeliers and classical artwork, whereas most of the accommodation options are housed in a newer extension of the central palace. Bright and breezy guestrooms of white linens and modest touches complement an outdoor area of wild shrubs peppering the grounds which surround that all-important swimming pool, essential for cooling down during those hot Algarve afternoons. The hotel restaurant specialises in fresh takes on local dishes, making a nod towards the traditions of both the age-old, original kitchen itself as well as the wider region; a suitable finale to any day spent at the prestigious Pousada Palacio de Estoi.
