Description

For our more adventurous guests, Vida Pura has two great yurts – one on each side of our beautiful property.

Historically built to withstand the long winters of Mongolia, yurts have recently experienced a surge in popularity throughout the world. Humble-yet-luxurious, these durable dwellings hold particular appeal for those wanting comfortable and spacious accommodation – but with a low environmental impact.

Erected atop a wooden platform, a yurt consists of trestle-type walls, and a ceiling of wooden spokes which support the 'crown'. This large central window not only lets sunlight in during the day, but also allows occupants to gaze up at the stars at night. Layers of canvas and felt protect against adverse weather and help stabilise the inside temperature.

For those of you wanting to be close to nature, it doesn't come much better than this; let the sounds of the great outdoors and the songs of nightingales lull you off to sleep and,

For our more adventurous guests, Vida Pura has two great yurts – one on each side of our beautiful property.

Historically built to withstand the long winters of Mongolia, yurts have recently experienced a surge in popularity throughout the world. Humble-yet-luxurious, these durable dwellings hold particular appeal for those wanting comfortable and spacious accommodation – but with a low environmental impact.

Erected atop a wooden platform, a yurt consists of trestle-type walls, and a ceiling of wooden spokes which support the 'crown'. This large central window not only lets sunlight in during the day, but also allows occupants to gaze up at the stars at night. Layers of canvas and felt protect against adverse weather and help stabilise the inside temperature.

For those of you wanting to be close to nature, it doesn't come much better than this; let the sounds of the great outdoors and the songs of nightingales lull you off to sleep and, in the morning, gently awaken to more wonderful birdsong. Truly, yurt living makes for an unforgettably relaxing night's rest.

Both of our yurts contain a comfy double bed, sofa, dining table with two chairs, wood burner, light, electricity and an outside chill area. And, boasting inner dimensions of roughly 26m2, they're surprisingly spacious! What's more, each yurt is free-standing – so your only neighbours will be our three peaceful donkeys.

For guests wishing to get the true ecological-living experience, a compost toilet is available for use. However, both yurts also have access to a shared bathroom (warm showers and flushing toilet) in the nearby 'Straw bale' building. This eco structure, made from straw bales, clay and lime, also grants use of a well-equipped kitchen and a living room with internet. Furthermore, an outside seating area features a grill and a clay oven which is great for making pizzas. All of these facilities are free for our guests to use as they please.

Not only are the yurts ecological, but also economical. If you're happy to forgo a few mod cons and live a little closer to our splendid natural surroundings, this is the accommodation for you!

Location description from owner

The Algarve region


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 riverside 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 runs right by our land goes for hundreds of kilometres over the coastline and partly inland as well.
Whether you're looking for rest, nature or an activity holiday this is the right spot.

Vida Pura Portugal is located 3,5 km from the village of Odeceixe, a cute little town where it seems time has stood still. Romantic restaurants with beautiful pure food, straight from the countryside, hills and sea can be enjoyed by all. 3 km's from the beach who has won the price for being one of the 7 miracle beaches of Portugal. One can enjoy the beach, the eco reserve and the natural park. It's a place where nature is still nature. All sorts of natural activities and sport like activities can be undertaken to enjoy this area to the fullest.

Aljezur

Embedded by the eco reserve that "Vida Pura eco retreat" is situated in and a short drive 6 km away from the stunning 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 biodynamic 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.
