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.
The Villa is opened all year long, except in January after the Holiday period and until early February.
In 2019 : closing on the 6th of January and re-opening on the 8th of February.
The spaces opened to the guests include a breakfast room, a living-room with its fireplace, the lobby with a souvenir shop and information desk, the patio with its orange trees and basin, and 3 terraces on two floors with nice views on the nature.
And of course : the swimming-pool and its deck, shower and lounge area ; the gardens, olive fields and meadows.
All inside spaces are non-smoking areas.
Free wi-fi is available in all public areas and guest rooms.
Check-in : 3 PM until 8 PM
Check-out : from 8:30 AM to 11 AM
No dogs allowed, sorry. We share gates with the National Ecological Reserve and also temporarily host sheep herds on our grounds.
Laundry service available 7/7
Taxi service to Evora or Lisboa airport, on request
As an alternative to the buffets, we prepare a generous breakfast based on daily renewed dishes and «à la carte» orders. Fresh fruit juices, local or home-made pastries, house-made marmalades, locally produced honey and cheese, bread basket, cereals, eggs, various kinds of ham and cheeses, and of course, a selection of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
The breakfast is served between 8:30 and 11 AM, either on the private room terraces, or in the patio, or inside in the eating room, at your convenience.
There is no restaurant at Villa Extramuros.
However, at lunchtime a selection of snacks and salads can be ordered, with prior notice in the morning. A picnic basket can also be prepared on request.
Dinners at the Villa require anticipated booking at reservation or at least the day before, and depend on availability. Our 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.
