— How would you describe Villa Extramuros in a few words?
— Villa Extramuros courtyard
— What was your inspiration to open a small hotel in Portugal?
We completely fell in love with Portugal and we love to share our discoveries of local products with our holiday guests. The Alentejo has so much to offer – often guests will see things in the house that they like and we are always happy to let them know where they can find a certain kind of blanket, carpet, wine etc. We consider our role sharing with guests what we like about the region and this house.”
— Villa Extramuros lounge area
— How would you describe the architecture and style of Villa Extramuros?
As for the interior design of the hotel, it is a mix of furniture and art that we have collected over the past 20 years with pieces from the last decade, but also pieces from the last century mixed with very contemporary pieces. And we are always adding new discoveries. It would be pretentious to say there is a particular style, though – it is our own mix that we created based on our taste.”

— Tell us a bit more about the rooms at Villa Extramuros.
Inside the hotel, there’s a mix between minimalist architecture and pieces of decoration that bring a warm atmosphere. We wanted each room to be different from another in terms of design and furnishings and also work as much as possible with local materials like cork.
Our most popular room is probably room number 5 because there are two terraces, and the bathroom is big with a nice shower. There is a central bed with beautiful views of the countryside and the local village with its castle.”
