My husband and I stayed at Villa Extramuros for three nights in late March and had an amazing time. The house is absolutely gorgeous, with design elements reflecting local materials and climate: cork walls from local trees soften the modernist concrete frame, marble from nearby Estremoz is used throughout the property to beautiful effect, skylights and large sliding glass doors...

We stayed in the beautiful designed and arranged house of very attentive, yet non intrusive hosts. The place is spotless, tranquil surrounded by nothing but plants and sun. Let your mind be mesmerized by that beauty and luxury of unspoilt silence. Enjoy the outstanding quality of food that is served whether its breakfast, a sumptuous soup for dinner or simply...

Wow. Le top du top! Perfectly curated decor, a peaceful and private setting, and wonderful local food! The modern and minimalist architecture is a very cool juxtaposition with the rustic and rural surrounding...and it's quite surreal to hear cows and sheep in the nearby fields while you float in the infinity pool. Don't miss sunset on your terrace, or a...

My husband, myself and our two 20-something daughters had the pleasure of spending three nights at Villa Extramuros last month--an absolutely wonderful experience. We had come from Lisbon and wanted a few days of downtime--and it was an extremely rejuvenating experience. Others have described how beautifully decorated the Villa is, and it is!--but beyond that is how much one feels...

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...

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...

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...
