If you have been researching Portugal and the types of accommodations available, you are likely intrigued by the concept of the Pousada.
Pousadas are exclusive to Portugal. They are a private hotel often located in a historically significant building or place of extreme natural beauty. With only 40 Pousadas in the entire county, they are a particularly special and unique type of accommodation.
Characteristically, each Pousada has a full-service restaurant dedicated to serving regional and local cuisine paired with wines from the neighbouring areas. It is often said that the meals served in a Pousada are one of the best parts of the entire experience.
Pousadas can be unofficially categorized as follows:
- Historical Pousadas: These are located in historical buildings, convents,
castles, fortresses and palaces.
- Historical Design Pousadas: Are Historical Pousadas whose design has been
enhanced by distinguished and renowned architects.
- Charm Pousadas: Boast an abundance of local charm.
- Nature Pousadas: As the name suggests are in areas of immense local beauty.
Faro is fortunate enough to be located within kilometers of a stunning Pousada- Rococo Palace. The “Palacio do Visconde de Estoi” was built at the end of the 18th century, beginning of the 19th century and originally owned by Visconde, Estoi Jose Francisco. After undergoing extensive renovation, the palace has been restored using a Versailles style with a traditional teahouse and garden.
