Embrace all the beauty of Portugal at Villa Extramuros. Sitting on 12 acres of serene landscape, guests are encouraged to take a jog through the olive trees or have a picnic in the citrus orchard. For your enjoyment, surrounding meadows are ecologically protected to allow natural vegetation and wildlife to flourish while nearby flocks of sheep to live peacefully.
Modern yet minimal, you can leave your clutter thoughts at home and step into this welcoming retreat. The guest rooms spare nothing at making you feel privileged. All come with private terrace space, some offer views of castles. The seamless design of the bathroom has amenities such as marble shower stall, rain shower, and spa quality soaps. The infinite pool is a luxurious experience with breathtaking views of the countryside and plenty of the Portugal sun to soak up. Every common room is meticulously designed with unique furniture pieces, animal rugs and a charming vibe. Though beautifully arranged inside, the obvious focal point of this hotel are those irresistible views.

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
