Pousada Palácio de Estoi - luxury hotel in estoi, faro, portugal

Estoi’s crowning glory – a Rococo palace bathed in Algarve sunshine

With its regal gardens and dusky pink walls adorned with domes and statues, Pousada Palácio de Estoi is deservedly a local landmark. This eye-catching palace dates back to the 18th century, but the luxury hotel it houses is anything but old fashioned. Step inside to discover a unique space where Rococo glamour blends with chic, 21st century design.

In the foyer, take in the antique paintings, glimmering gold leaf and ornate plasterwork commissioned by the palace's original owner, the Viscount of Estoi. Then, retreat to the elegant simplicity of your private suite. Swim in the outdoor pool, or relax with a massage at the spa. And enjoy an evening stroll through the formal gardens, before sampling regional specialities in 'O Visconde' restaurant.

Pousada Palácio de Estoi makes a wonderful base from which to tour the eastern Algarve. Book a private excursion to explore natural parks, or canoe out to the region’s distinctive sandbank islands. Play a round of golf, seek out the nearby Milreu Roman ruins, or head for Faro to uncover bustling plazas and medieval churches.
