Condo/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. As the name suggests, a lot of cane grows here, and we used this material to decorate this apartment. You will find bamboo used in all sorts of ways: in the ceilings and interior finishing, in the table, the kitchen shelves, and even the bed. The use of other natural building materials, such as cork, wood and stone, gives the apartment a truly harmonious feel. The Bamboo Apartment features: •one bedroom with double bed (160cm x 200cm) •bathroom with shower, toilet and sink, •a corridor with wardrobe •a split level down (50 cm 3 steps) open space living, dining and kitchen area •a simple rural kitchen with fridge, gas stove w...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.

A tiny oven built into the stove means that, on a cold day, you could even make a fire and cook a cake, should the mood take you. The windows to the front of the apartment grant an amazing view of the valley and access to a beautiful wooden decking area (more than 30m²), complete with outside shower and plenty of space for lounging, sitting, or enjoying yoga. On the other side we have a tiled outside area – for extra sun exposure in the morning and on windy days. Through this side you can also access your vehicle’s parking area, located just 30 meters away from the apartment, at the end of a wide, slate-paved path. Electricity, water and gas are included in the price; as is wood during the colder winter months. The building is centrally heated. For guests with children we can provide cots for the bedroom. Younger children can sleep on an extra bed in the living room or, if over seven years old, can use the low mezzanine level – a great adventure for kids (accessed via a small staircase).

Girls yoga relax short break
Three perfect nights in this tranquil spot. Daily Yoga on the deck, delicious breakfast, donkeys, chickens, fresh produce, mooching round the quaint local villages. A really relaxing few days. Would recommend an escape to here.

About the neighbourhood
Embedded in the eco reserve and a short 3 km drive away from the town of Odeceixe and from there just 3 km away from the stunning 1st price wining beach of Odeceixe we have the best of both worlds to offer. 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. Apart from our houses that are built as ecologically as possible we have a beautiful bio-dynamic garden that produces lovely food for you to enjoy. Great walks and strolls by the river stream can be undertaken. If you want some more movement but not too much you can take a bike, walk or drive to Odeceixe, a little sleepy town where time has stood still. Around the area traditionalism is very tangible, agriculture and fishery are one of the main activities. An area where donkeys are still ploughing the fields and the fish is served straight from the boat onto your plate. Odeceixe Beach is a 1st price winning beach in the huge Natural Park that surrounds it. The beach is great for surfing, body boarding and sunbathing. It lends itself for playing lots of games and because of its width during low tide it's almost a round beach. The stream that runs over our land flows into the sea. At the river side the ocean's waves are cancelled out and harnesses great opportunity for families with smaller kids. Recently the Rota Vicentina has been installed, an unbelievable experience for trekking minded people. A trail that that runs right by us goes for 100's of kilometres over the coast line and partly inland as well. Whether you're looking for rest, nature or an acivity holiday this is the right spot.
Getting around
Odeceixe is centrally located right in between the Alentejo and the Algarve area and has great access to various transport. On a daily basis buses stop at Odeceixe, either the Rede Expressos bus from and to Lisbon or the local buses from and to Aljezur and Lagos. Odeceixe is located next to the N120 which is connected to highway A22. The nearest train station is in Lagos, from where you can take the bus to Odeceixe. Faro is with a 1,5 hour drive the nearest airport, but the international airport of Lisbon is also nearby (3,5 hours by car).
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Vida Pura is an eco-friendly accommodation, perfectly situated on a hill in a picturesque nature reserve. The perfect place to relax in nature. Odeceixe town is the closest town- 3.5 km away and Odeceixe beach is 6.0 km away Renting a car is highly advisable, because that will allow you to reach us easier, discover the area, going out for dinner, etc... Faro airport is a 1h30 drive and Lisbon is a 3h30 away. Is also possible to come by public transport. Coming from Lisbon by bus, you have 2 bus service a day, one at 7h30 and another one at 17h30, arriving 4 hours later. Please check rede-expressos Coming from Faro, you have to make you way to Lagos by train from Faro (1.45 hrs) and then from Lagos to Odeceixe by bus. Check eva-bus. Be advised the latest bus leaves at 19:15 but on Saturday only 13:45 so if you can´t make that bus you´d have to sleep in Faro or Lagos. Pick up and drop off from Odeceixe bus stop is included. Bike rental is also available for 10 euros per day. But you have to book a few days before arrival. Taxi service from Faro Airport to Vida Pura is 125 euros one way or through a personal contact of ours 95 euros. Coming from Faro we have a preferred supplier where you get to enjoy a 10% off rate on your booking, please check luzcar and when you fill in the calculation form please mention in the comments that you are a guest from Vida Pura and they will give you a 10% discount.
