Charming and historic house, with exceptional host
Reviewed 18 november, 2021
Wonderful old building. No on-site parking but parking on street close by was easy. Catarina met us and showed us round after a welcome complimentary drink. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she explained the history of the place as we walked round. Our room was good and decorated in the way you’d expect for such a historic building. The bed, however, was not the most comfortable. Breakfast, taken in the converted stables, was basic but perfectly adequate. Didn’t need the fresh orange juice to be watered down though. There was an honesty bar where you helped yourself and noted on a sheet against your room name what you had taken. Not an idea that would take off in the more touristy hotels of the Algarve methinks!! Hotel had a small pool outside, but this looked more ornamental than functional, and far too cold in November anyway. Overall, an excellent one night stay en route inland, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to fellow travellers.

This casa is a little gem. It's run by a lovely lady called Catherina, who is absolutely delightful, nothing is too much trouble. The house is an old family home, not a museum a home, you can sit anywhere or touch anything. There is an honour bar and you can take your drinks to the little poolside. The rooms are lovely, ours had a little terrace, it's a true home from home, so comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic, including home made cake.
Lovely old house, great atmosphere and quiet

Many old interesting features, furnished with original furniture.Great breakfast and Catarina who hosts is excellent - warm and welcoming. Old style - if you're looking for a modern hotel this is not it, but it has everything you need and is historic, charming and calm.
MOST PERFECT PLACE !!

If you are looking for the Ritz or a high end glitzy hotel this is not your place. This is a fantastic hotel in a large, old European estate home. It has been converted to hotel rooms, each decorated in its own way with large bathrooms. The rooms are very large compared to your usual European hotel rooms. The breakfast is served outside on a covered veranda and is plentiful and super tasty, with freshly squeezed orange juice. There is a pool and lounge chairs that are comfortable. But what struck me is the kindness of the people who work there. We arrived very late (1:30am) and were greeted with a smiling face and a readiness to help. The manager drove us to our car rental agency in the morning and stayed with us,as the agency was giving us the run around. I loved this place and regret not having booked it for more days. There is no question that next time I am in Faro I will be staying here.
Lovely house in quiet village

The house itself is lovely, full of original features and furniture. The host was very kind and friendly and breakfast was great. The honesty bar was a nice touch. It's a good place to spend a night or two but the village of Estoi is super quiet so own transport recommended. There's one very nice restaurant nearby called Galeria dos Sentidos but be sure to book ahead as it's very busy - there's also a nice bar on the square opposite but they were not serving food in the evenings. On a downside we were wakened each morning by a building site next door. Our room had a terrace but no furniture to use it. The pool/garden area needs updating badly as full of broken furniture and dead plants.
