About Us

Pura Vida is a B & B in the heart of Andalucía for those who love the peace & quiet, culture and good food.

Discover the real Spain from our little haven of peace and culinary delight. Enjoy the endless views from one of the terraces or beside the pool. Pura Vida has four spacious, contemporary rooms, each with private bathroom. All the rooms are decorated with paintings of the Belgian artist Sabine Maes.

The house is located in a small village with a tapas bar just across the street. But once you open the door and step on to the patio you’ll only see thousands of olive trees and relax completely.

For those of you that like to be surprised and culinary pampered, join us four nights a week for a 4-course dinner. Anke is a passionate hobby cook and takes inspiration from both the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine. The BBQ is also lit regularly for a pleasant evening with a glass of wine or even a Belgian beer.

The B & B is very centrally located in Andalucía. Granada, Cordoba and Malaga are within an hour’s drive, Seville 1.5h. It is also ideal for great day trips with Antequera and Archidona both under 30 minutes away. There are a number of charming whitewashed villages and towns nearby such Iznajar or Priego de Cordoba. Hikers and nature lovers are well catered for as well with the National Park of El Torcal and Lake Iznajar nearby.

You can relax by the pool, but there is also a ‘jeu de boule’ area, table tennis and for the kids a trampoline and sandpit. We have a number of travel and hiking guides available for our guests. But of course, doing nothing is definitely a great option as well!
