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...

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....

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...

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...

Just back from an exploration of this wonderful region. The villa is all you expect from the photographs and much much more. Francois our generous host has great ideas for places to visit and has created a very peaceful environment in which to relax and unwind. Breakfasts were lovely and I recommend to book ahead for an evening meal at...

This is a destination hotel, no question about it. It is a place to come and chill and enjoy the design, and also the isolation. The little design touches on the hotel are really just top notch. Everywhere you look it's another little thing. We loved it. It looked like our house. And that's only because we redid our house...

FSARRA, Propriétaire at Villa Extramuros, responded to this review

Dear Guest, we are happy that you loved our house, our pool and our grounds (with the sheep). Villa Extramuros is indeed located in the quietness of the Alentejo countryside, but just 2 minutes outside our small town Arraiolos and only 20 minutes from Evora, a World Heritage City. Regarding our breakfast, there must have been a misunderstanding. We are...

We stayed at Villa Extramuros for 3 nights. If heaven is like this place I would love to die right now! Before our arrival we talked about how we hoped it was going to be like in the picture we saw. And thrust me this place is even better than it looks! We arrived to early as we had a...

Villa Extramuros is probably the most impressive bed and breakfast in which my husband and I have ever stayed. Upon arrival, we were struck by the juxtaposition of an ultra-modern oasis tucked away in a rural countryside filled with cork and olive trees and livestock. The decor is impeccable. The rooms are beautiful, perfectly furnished, and provide sweeping views of...

“We recommend the "superior" rooms because of the extraordinary views. We saw the "standard" rooms and they are cheaper and more than acceptable, but we prefer the "superior" rooms.”

“Both standard and superior rooms are huge and have the same bathroom. With Superior you get a larger private balcony with chaise lounge chairs (vs. table and chairs in standard).”
