Photographer Vanessa Jackman recently stayed at Villa Extramuros in the Alentejo region of Portugal — so of course she took lots of pictures. Surrounded by twelve acres of olive and oak trees, the crisp white walls and modern architectural lines of Villa Extramuros are a striking contrast to the soft warm tones of the picturesque landscape. Love the easy mix of modern pieces and the casual collections of books, art and more inside — this is a modern space that is truly a home and not a showplace. Lots more photos of this beautiful villa on Vanessa's blog here. If you'd like to visit Villa Extramuros, find out about booking a room on their website here.
