Pousada Palácio de Estói

Pousada Palácio de Estói

Those who leave the Algarve's well-trodden beaches and coastal hotels enter the wonderful world of Portugal's southernmost region. This is where the landscape goes up and down between fig and almond trees and white villages dazzling against the blue sky. One of these picturesque towns is Estói, a sign of the charm of the real Algarve, with bumpy streets between snow-white houses and gardens full of flowers and greenery. Even the Romans succumbed to Estói, as they built a luxury villa in the hamlet of Milreu. Later, a noble family built a veritable palace here, the 'Versailles of the Algarve'. Now called 'Pink Palace', the castle is the cheerful regal accent in Estói.
