Pousada Palácio Estoi


This Pousada was built in the ancient Palace of Estói (XIX century) and was formerly owned by the Viscount of Estói, José Francisco da Silva. The construction of the palace lasted about 20 years and was finished with a spectacular celebration in the gardens of the palace on the 2nd of May 1909. After the Viscount’s death, the palace was kept by his family until 1987 when it was bought by the Faro City Council. Today the palace has been converted into the Pousada of Estói. Attached to the palace is a modern extension in a sympathetic design which houses the spacious standard and superior rooms, all comfortably appointed with marvellous views of the surrounding countryside.
