Amongst the 100,000 foreign nationals resident in the Algarve, many have had Rotarian experience in their home countries. Some would like to continue their Rotarian engagement but, because of language barriers, feel uneasy about joining a local Portuguese Rotary Club.
There are also other expatriates without any Rotarian background but with a strong desire to contribute to the local (and wider) community. The Rotary Club Estoi Palace International represents an opportunity for both groups of people.
We meet over lunch every Tuesday at 13:00 at the renovated Estoi Palace, which used to belong to the Viscount of Estoi, José Francisco da Silva, but is now the Pousada de Faro - Palácio de Estoi. Lunch costs €14.50 or €16.50 if you want to include wine with your meal.
Meeting language is English. Dress code is "Smart Casual". We often have a guest speaker at each meeting and a list of planned speakers and other events can be found here on our "Events Calendar" page.
Rotarians and non-Rotarians are welcome to visit us, but please let us know in advance if you plan to attend our meetings.
If you are interested in joining our Rotary club please contact our President
For all other requests, including luncheon reservations, please contact our Master of Ceremonies
A map and directions to the Estoi Palace Pousada can be found on our Links page along with more information about the facilities.
