We drove all the way to the palace from Carvoeiro, the palace is closed to visitors including the restaurant due to COVID. It’s a small hotel and they are only allowing guests staying to visit at this time. Gardens can be accessed thru the center square. Not worth the visit at least currently.

As it is now a hotel, only guests can access. Even the garden in locked with big gates and no one can go inside. As it has big walls around it it is impossible to take any pictures. I don’t understand why Portuguese government sold a public building. Anyway not worth the visit

According to what is written at the entrance it is "just for guests". We even could not see the big hall. So if you are entering or living Algarve forget the renovated Palace of Estoi and its gardens. The bar is closed, maybe this policy will change after the pandemic, but I doubt.

While staying in Faro and having some spare time, a visit to "Palácio de Estói" is highly recommended. It is only 10km away from Faro and easily reached by car (or public bus). The palace had its construction started around 1840 and was completed only in 1906. It features characteristics of the neo-baroque and neo-rococo styles, with fine plastered ceilings, beautiful paintings and traditional furniture. At its French inspired gardens, ponds, fountains and many marble statues complete the scene. A chapel dedicated to the "Holy Family" is within its premises. In 1977, "Palácio de Estói" was appointed as a Portuguese National Monument and, after totally renovated, it became a hotel. We just drove from Faro, visited the public areas of the hotel, had lunch at its "O Visconde" restaurant and headed to nearby "Ruínas de Milreu". A lovely day at Faro's countryside! Enjoy!
