About

Vida Pura is an eco-friendly & family friendly retreat in the middle of a reserve close to the town of Odeceixe and its marvelous beach. We offer various self-catering accommodation types each with unique interior design. We have a farm based on bio-dynamic principles and quite a few animals; donkeys, dogs, cats, ducks & chickens. The nature of this project is humanitarian and the profit is put towards people and animals in need or towards projects that help to create a more sustainable planet.

We hope to inspire our guests and visitors to live in a more ecological way and to give back to the world. We offer the opportunity to experience more inner peace just be being here for a relaxing holiday, or in one of our health & well-being retreats.

Our aim is to live as self-sustainable as possible and to work and live hand in hand with nature. At the moment we are self-sustainable in regards to our energy production (solar and wind). We operate more than 100% CO2 neutral through overproduction and selling back solar energy to the grid. We have a farm where we grow our own food based on bio-dynamic principles, but we also still depend on outside food suppliers. We harvest our own water for both domestic and gardening purposes and we treat our wastewater on site.

We operate as environment friendly as we can. We recycle the biggest part of our waste (paper, plastic, glass, metal, food & garden waste). Developing this project we tried to use where possible natural materials and/or materials with as little embodied energy as possible. So long as durability and compliance with local legislation were assured. We use ecological building principles and all our houses have an A+ energy certificates with A+ till A+++ appliances.

 

Accommodation

BAMBOO APARTMENT
The inspiration for this one-of-a-kind apartment came from the original Portuguese name of the land, ’Moinho das Canas’, which, freely translated, means Cane Mill.

The use of other natural building materials, such as cork, wood, and stone, gives the apartment a truly harmonious feel.

Location

During the day and especially at night it is so quiet you can hear a pin drop, the nocturnal animals sing their songs and the stream that divides the Algarve and the Alentejo trickles endlessly over the land. You can take great hikes by the river stream and up or down the valley.

Odeceixe Beach is a 1st prize-winning beach in the huge Natural Park that surrounds it. The beach is great for surfing, body boarding and sunbathing. At the riverside, the ocean’s waves are canceled out and harness great opportunity for families with smaller kids.

If you want some more movement but not too much you can take a bike, walk or drive to Odeceixe, a little sleepy town but vibrant in summer. Around the area traditionalism is very tangible, agriculture and fishery are one of the main activities. It’s an area where you can still find donkeys plowing the fields and the fish is served straight from the boat onto your plate.
