A fantastic house in a beautiful area. The hosts are lovely and have great taste for interior design. I wish this was my house! The pool is beautiful and the views are very relaxing. Also nice to hear and see the sheep and shepherd passing by while sun lounging. The bedrooms are very comfortable (big shower with plenty of Aesop... More

Francois and Jean Christophe have created an oasis of comfort and style in Portugal's Alentejo region. The building is spectacular both inside and out and the hosts made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. The villa is filled with artwork, books, and a variety of small comfortable spaces to lounge, read, or just take in the view. Breakfasts were... More

Excellent stay at Villa - very modern and beautiful interior. Our room had tremendous view of distant Arraiolos and was extremely comfortable with large balcony (terrace). This is place to stay when touring small towns in Alentejo including Evora. Nice to escape back to peaceful countryside and olive groves after a day touring. Francois and team could not have been...

A new delightful stay in the villa, the second in two years! The delicious breakfast in the patio, the delicate perfume of flowers and trees surrounding the villa in spring, time hanging up by the pool, the kindness and precious pieces of advice of the host... everything makes it so special... We will come back again (without the woolen coat... More

Great room and atmosphere. We have been extremely well received and really much appreciated our quiet stay in this villa. Beautiful views over the village. Unique boutique hotel. One of the best secrets kept in Portugal.

I guess I will be repeating what many have already said... This is a marvelous place: top design, relaxing atmosphere, excellent hospitality by the owners,... We really loved our couple of days at Villa Extramuros and felt sorry to leave. We cannot wait to go back!

Visiting Villa Extramuros made me feel like a sixties movie star on a peaceful retreat. The design of the building and rooms is brilliantly done up to the tiniest of details and François and Jean-Christophe have managed to create a relaxed, sophisticated, yet charming atmosphere. Tip: late spring is a great time to visit, with all the fields being green... More

What a special place. There has been so much written about the architectural design in both design and tourism magazines I won't say anymore than "it's everything that the articles say that it is." With that aside there is the hospitality - Francois is a charming and engaging host and the breakfast - cooked to order by his partner Jean-Christophe.... More

We arrived in Lisbon from London and left the airport at 5pm on a Friday, but the 'rush hour' was very insignificant and an easy 100 mile drive on excellent roads to Arriolas. The hotel has received countless accolades in architectural, tourism and design magazines. Francois is a perfect host and very charming. The rooms are excellent and the lounge... More

Villa Extramuros is a hip, stylish retreat surrounded by tranquility. The experience was surreal and I still dream of being there. The villa is tastefully designed (the owners have exquisite tastes!), extremely clean and comfortable, and located in the beautiful countryside – being from NYC, we thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness the location and the hotel had to offer. I highly... More
