Combining the best of old and new, Pousada De Estoi is set in a rococo palace from 1909 with an ultra-modern wing added exactly 100 years later. The Pousada is located in the town of Estoi, just 10 km from Faro and its airport proper. The palace itself includes Versailles-style gardens and tea pavilions, perfect for exploring after a dip in the indoor or outdoor pools, fitness centre or sauna visit. Marvel at Pousada’s many original elements, including beautiful wall frescos and antique furnishings.

The sleek, minimalist designed rooms (22m2) and suites (40m2) come with air conditioning, a work desk, seating area and a balcony or terrace with direct access to the garden.

The restaurant serves the Algarve’s famed cuisine from shellfish to sweets made with local almonds and figs. The bar and lounge is situated in the original palace.

A striking mix of a baroque/rococo palace and a post modern addition, this Pousada is truly breathtaking. Opened in may 2009 (I stayed january 2010) the Versailles style gardens are not completely renovated yet, but the hotel is completely up-and-running. We had a very warm and personal welcome and were lead to a huge, contemporary room. Amazing views all the way down to Faro and the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon. Very comfortable beds and also the bathroom was huge with a bathtub and powerful massage shower. Sadly the weather was so so, so we could not use the outdoor pool, which nevertheless looked very inviting. As this is one of the Pousadas latest members it has a spa with a small indoor pool, steam baths, sauna and massage. The restaurant, like all Pousadas restaurants, serves topnotch local cuisine. The bar is located in the Palace itself with some amazing high ceilinged rooms. Breakfast was excellent with huge choice. In all an excellent stay. If you like the Pousadas with their serene atmosphere and historic surroundings, you will certainly like Estoi.
