In Andalusia you will find everything which stereotypically makes you think of Spain: white villages, flamenco, beaches, cave houses, fiestas, processions, tapas, sherry, etc. But also art, nature and a relaxed lifestyle are part of the larger picture.
Pura Vida is located in a unique setting. Right in the middle of a small village, La Parrilla (part of Villanueva de Algaidas ) in the province of Malaga. Opposite to the B&B is an authentic bar where you can eat tapas for lunch, but once you return through our door you immediately experience tranquility thanks to the endless views of the hills filled with olive trees.
The house is more than 100 years old, a farmhouse (cortijo) which has been tastefully restored. It is built into the hillside and has several terraces ( both sunny and shady ), a refreshing swimming pool (heated from April to October) and 4 comfortable rooms.
The area is known for its olive oil , 90% of the population lives on olive cultivation. In La Parrilla it is as if time has stood still. Everyone knows everybody, the men go to the bar with their horses, dogs or tractors. The four -legged friends are waiting faithfully at the door while their owners stop the clock for a delicious espresso with an anis licour, a few tapas and to exchange the latest news. Children play all day outside and in the evening, sat on their folding chairs outside their doors, the women gossip and enjoy the cool breeze.
You can find all this only an hour ‘s drive from Malaga Airport (78 km), but also one hour away from Granada and the magnificent Alhambra, Cordoba with its old Jewish quarter and Mezquita and the stunning city of Ronda.
Also nature lovers and bird watchers can explore. The Parque Natural El Torcal, the impressive Garganta del Chorro, beautiful Lake Iznajar, flamingoes in Fuente del Piedra and many other places can be found nearby. Or for the more adventurous white water rafting or quad biking!
