It should be called Pousada de Estoi instead art is is located 10km north of Faro in the small town of Estoi. This is a nice and colorful palace from the 19th century. It is now the home of a 'pousada'. However, you do not need to stay in the hotel to visit the premises. There are two sides. Firstly, the mansion whose main hall still bears its formal grandeur. Lovely view over the garden, the countryside as far as the sea from the windows. Then, do not miss the beautiful garden inspired by French and Italian designs. This is really with a detour as it is not far from the turnpike.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 with a combination of the classical, Baroque and contemporary elements that will definitely be a memorable experience. ... more less
