The Villa Extramuros was built in Arraiolos, a small city north of Evora, the Capital of Alentejo, the largest province of Portugal well known for its unspoiled beautiful nature, historical treasures and quiet lifestyle (not forgetting a rich gastronomy)

We fell in love with this region and wanted to share our passion with visitors. We welcome you in a very contemporary villa, decorated with furniture and art from the 1950’s until today, and with a parisian twist.

To say it in one word, Villa Extramuros wishes to bring you off the trodden paths.

    During the day, a selection of snacks and salads can be ordered, with prior notice in the morning, for lunch. A picnic basket can also be prepared on request. Dinners at the Villa require anticipated booking at reservation, or at least the day before. Style : a gourmet mix of Portuguese, Mediterranean and French specialties, using the best of Alentejo’s generous products, including organic fruits and vegetables. Fresh and hot drinks are served all along the day until 10 PM.
