About this listing

Perfectly situated on a hill in a picturesque nature reserve, just 3km from Odeceixe town, this large, ecologically-built house grants its occupants sensational views across the valley below – through which flows the famous Seixe river.

The space

The Serenity room is part of the Vida Pura Villa, that also functions as a guesthouse in winter and spring season. The room is rented out individually and has access to the rest of the villa, which is shared with the guests who could occupy the other rooms. This means that facilities, such as kitchen and living room are shared. We do this in mid and low season and often it means you have the whole villa to yourself whilst paying the rate for a room. In summer we rent the villa as a whole plus the villa can be used as a retreat house as well.
This romantic room in lavender colors features a king size bed with an “ en suite” bathroom, with bath, shower and toilet. It has an outdoor wooden terrace, facing a big pond where you can see the sun rising and enjoy a nice breakfast whilst listening to the frog symphony. It also has another outdoor terrace with a view over the valley and you can enjoy the sunset over the hills(URL HIDDEN)Both terraces are perfect for relaxing, enjoying a nice meal, reading a book or doing some activities like yoga.

The Vida Pura Guesthouse has a floor space of 230m2 and features one master bedroom with en suite (bath, toilet, sink), two smaller bedrooms, a bathroom (toilet, shower, sink, and wheelchair accessible if necessary), plus kitchen, living and dining areas. Each bedroom has its own outdoor access – great for doing yoga, reading a good book, or just relaxing in the hammock and taking in the ambience.

The spacious kitchen comes equipped with a double sink, fridge/freezer, gas cooker and gas oven. The herb garden in front of the house will supply you with the lovely flavour of the region! Meanwhile, the open plan living and dining area measures a generous 80m2 and contains a large dining table with 10 seats, a big couch, and a TV with 80 satellite channels.

Large windows throughout ensure that, even while relaxing indoors, guests can still appreciate the beauty of their natural surroundings. Furthermore, large glass sliding doors allow you access the large front decking area.

Equipped with a dining table and chill-out furniture, the wave-shaped decking measures more than 100m2 and is the perfect for relaxing of an evening, gazing up into the vivid night sky and listening to the frogs of the nearby pond treat you to an evening concert. A further 80m2 terrace of Santa Catarina tiles store solar energy throughout the day and release it at night, providing the perfect solar heater for guests outside after sunset.

Guest access

The land and river side are available as well as are our animals. On top of it all we have a bio-dynamic farm going on that you can visit and enjoy and buy its produce and home made products like jam and such. We have many guest services to offer such a surflessons, bike rental, yoga and meditation classes, donkey touring and much more.
Or take a refreshing dive in the river!

Interaction with guests

Although guests have their own completely private accomodation, we share the same outside areas with our guests. That means we interact with the guests trying to give them the best service possible.

Other things to note

We recycle our glass, plastic, paper, metal and food and, because we produce our own
renewable energy, we operate with a very low carbon output and minimal waste.
And since we acquire most of our energy from the sun, our supply is limited to what nature gives us.

As well as staying in accommodation full of natural materials, you will get to enjoy a 100%
ecological holiday experience. Not only does the resort harness its energy from sun
and wind, but we also source our own water, treat our own drainage and produce a lot
of our own food.
The retreat features a biodynamic farm which creates great natural produce for you to
enjoy, if you so wish, and we have lots of delicious, home-made products available to you.
The farm contains various animals; we have chickens, ducks, cats, dogs and donkeys,
that all play their part in helping us sustain this rewarding lifestyle both as committed
co-workers and as domestic companions.

We love animals, however we must ask that you do not bring pets which might harass or
harm our free-roaming ducks, chickens, donkeys, cats, dogs and small children.
When bringing an animal we always prefer to have a chat over the phone to talk things
through. On the property dogs always need to be on a leash.

We organise yoga lessons 4 times per week and professional massages on request.

We stayed in Serenity room for 4 nights (me and my husband). It was amazing. The view from the outdoor terrace was beautiful, at night we watched the stars - I think I've never seen so many of them at the same time. All of the animals were friendly (we met 3 cats, 3 dogs, 3 donkeys and a duck :-) ). The staff was super friendly. We recommend this place to anyone traveling by car. Thank you for an unforgettable stay.

We had a really great stay in the main room of the Villa. The landscape is beautiful and calm. Everything is well organized by the hosts. Great atmosphere. We would definitely recommend this lovely place! :) We also stayed in one of the yurts which was also a great experience! Would love to come back!

This was the best part of our Portugal trip! Perfect location to relax in the nature!

The best place we've ever stayed through Airbnb ! The place is amazing, with a fantastic view, close to the beaches and in a very quiet area. The nature surrounding Vida Pura is beautiful and it is just too sad we only stayed for 2 days. We met Anabella and Robin, both were really nice, helpful and shared their passion about the place they created. We recommend Vida Pura 100%, and hope to be back soon !

Wer Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit inmitten der Natur sucht, ist hier genau richtig! Für uns war bei unserer Rundreise durch Portugal das Vida Pura der perfekte Ausgleich zum hektischen Großstadtleben in Porto und Lissabon. Die Anlage ist wunderschön, die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und der Blick von der eigenen Terrasse - sei es auf die Natur oder in den Sternenhimmel - ist einmalig! ! Robin war ein super Gastgeber -insbesondere war die Kommunikation während und vor dem Aufenthalt gut und flexibel - und überhaupt, die ganze Mentalität des Vida Puras ist ein guter Kontrast zum tristen Alltagsleben. Wir können das Vida Pura nur weiterempfehlen und freuen uns schon auf unseren nächsten Besuch. ...

We´re running the Vida Pura eco retreat and inspiration land. Besides being in a dwelling full of natural materials you get to enjoy also a 100% ecological holiday experience. This means we produce all our own energy form sun and wind, we source our own water in various ways, we treat our own waste water and we produce a lot of our own food. We have built our buildings with as many ecological building materials as we could. The resort also has it’s own bio-dynamic farm and we work with our animals. Further we recycle glass plastic, paper, metal and food so we operate with minimum carbon output and very little waste. This of course is a bonus because you are spending your holiday greener for the same value with no strain on the planet. Of course we ask everybody that works and lives here to help us realize this and stick to this attitude. We hope that you will help us do this.
