Looking for a hidden gem in the Algarve? Take a break from the busy beach resorts to visit the tranquil garden and palace of Estoi. Palacio de Estoi is a treat for the eye with its colourful facade and lavish interior and just a short trip from Faro.
The Estoi palace back in the days
The palace was built in the 18th century and belonged to a local aristocrat from the Carvalhal family. The palace took almost 15 years to finish and was used as a summer house. Makes me wonder how their main house must have been like? :)
The Estoi palace now
Just a few years ago the palace was a semi-ruin, it has now been restored and converted into a luxury hotel. The garden and some of the majestic rooms inside the palace are open for everyone to see. There is also a café and a terrace from where you can enjoy beautiful views.
