I live in Portugal and often bring friends to see this beautiful Palacio for tea or a beer on the terrace after a visit to the Roman Villa at Milreu. The hotel is happy for the public to come and see the salas, which are well worth a visit. The beautiful gardens are being restored and a walk around the Palacio to the lane at the bottom reveal a lovely view through large wrought iron gates up a drive which needs weeding...but I loved it...all very Miss Haversham! I really think the hotel should specialise in afternoon teas English stylie...it is all rather quiet on the terrace in the afternoon but it would be wonderful to have a proper high tea. I hope to stay here one day for a special occasion and enjoy the view at greater length.
- 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
