I went there with my partner in October 2014 and had a great stay. Amazing design, great hosts, nice area (particularly Evora) and good food. Francois and J-C were very helpful in suggesting places to go and see, also restaurants and shops to visit in the Alentejo area. Will def come back one day.

This hotel is a stunner. Wonderful modern architecture that at first feels too minimalist (for my taste and in regards to the surroundings) but at every glance becomes more and more beautiful. I loved the way the building was designed to mimic a Roman house with a large interior courtyard. The decor was quite tasteful and furnishings were very comfortable.... More

+ Great very modern design + Very clean and great room infrstructure + Beautiful pool + Very friendly staff Kind of perfect hotel out of Monocle. At EUR 170 per night it was very expensive for the area though.

My husband and I spend two weeks traveling around Portugal for our honeymoon, and though the whole trip was pretty magical, our stay at Villa Extramuros was our favorite part. Everything about this spot is impeccable, from the design to the service to the views. We had the pool pretty much to ourselves while we were there, and we absolutely... More

If you like your B&Bs architecturally designed with cool and stylish interiors (as we do) you will love Villa Extramuros. A beautiful place in the wild and rugged Alentejo countryside which, although just 20 minutes’ walk from the local town of Arraiolos and close to other properties, you feel as though you are miles away from anywhere. My husband and... More

Hugely stylish, small boutique property in the Alentejo countryside. The juxtaposition of the owners' mid-century sensibility and the stark modern architecture of the building with the surrounding country landscape - olive trees, the medieval town of Arraiolos, the flocks of sheep - is really magical. Only five luxe, spacious and modern rooms (with amazing views of the countryside) makes you... More

This place feels like home, the owners are doing their best to help you and recommend you great restaurants or boutiques around the area or in Portugal. We stayed two nights in room 5 on our honey moon and this peaceful retreat is definitely worth the trip. We can only advise you when going to Portugal to stay there.

There are places where you always want to return.... Villa Extramuros is the place I would love to return over and over again... It simple has everything to make holidays wonderful! Beautiful location ( Alentejo region is still not touristic, so get there and have it for yourself!), villa/rooms/grounds as mentioned by many others are beautifully designed and very comfortable....

Villa Extramuros surpassed all my expectations. The location is amazing, all you hear are the birds singing and the sheep. :) It's very peaceful. You also have a perfect view to Arraiolos and Arraiolos' castle. The building in itself is very beautiful, very simple but sophisticated. It has an outdoor area on the center of the building that smells of... More

François and Jean-Christophe have created an extraordinary Villa in Arraiolos. The welcoming atmosphere gives a relaxed feeling of staying in the home of friends. Their exquisite taste is visible in a large scale, as well as in the details of the design pieces they have collected. It is a beautiful combination of French, Scandinavian and Portuguese style. We stayed in... More
