Four of us visited Pura Vida for a meal. What a gastronomic experience - fantastic. We had booked several days before and explained that one of the party didn't eat meat and that two of us we not keen on chocolate sweets. Anke & Kristof developed a menu which suited all of us. The attention to detail, service and food... More

The door opened and we stepped into a very different place than the outside led us to imagine. It was a rustic haven of great food, a clean and stylish room and hosts that offered a friendly and warm service. Sitting having a welcome drink under the cool of a beautiful tree we looked over stunning views of the Andalucian... More

We stayed at this rural B&B for two weeks. Our hosts, Anke and Cristof, were Belgian and perhaps that's the difference, but cleanliness was something that was lacking. Our bedding was changed once in the two weeks we were there. I know this because the sheets were slightly stained. The bedding was only changed in the first couple of days.... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences in our bed & breakfast. I was quite shocked to read some parts of your review though and I believe your judgment is unfair, so I like to respond. The linen is indeed changed at the end of every week, when guests are with us for a longer stay. When... More

During a stressful period at work I just needed to escape for a few days to relax a bit and find some energy back. Casa Pura Vida was exactly what I needed. You arrive there in a tiny village and after opening the doors of the B&B your mouth drops open at the splendid view from the dining room and... More

We stayed at Pura Vida for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute! After a marvelous ride in the Andalusian mountains, we found this B&B located in the middle of Andalucia and surrounded by olive yards. Its location is really perfect to explore the cultural heritages of the Andalusian cities, but we also enjoyed sportive activities such as hiking in the... More

we spend a week with our 3 children (14y - 16y - 18y) in 2 adjoint nice rooms with commun terras. That was very private for our family and yet very cosy, because the B&B of Alain has only 4 rooms and a lot of nice spaces outside like the pool, the breakfast terrace, the terrace with a magnificant view...

It is all perfect: the location, the pool, the room, the food.. The owner Alain is very friendly and he will do anything to make your stay unforgettable. Whenever you want to visit Andalucia: do not hesitate and book a room in this very nice BB, you won't regret...

We stayed at Pura Vida for 3 nights and I can only confirm the positive reviews. The B&B is very tastefully decorated with large stylish bedrooms and a beautiful pool that looks out onto the neighbouring olive plantations. The owners Alain & Caroline are extremely friendly and welcoming and the food is AMAZING!! This is a great place for rest... More

After some busy months we were so ready for a relaxing holiday, and boy, did we get it at Pura Vida. After a warm welcome by Alain, Caroline showed us our beautiful room. Clean, cool and charming. We liked it instantly. The pool at Pura Vida has one of the most astonishing views: olive trees and even more olive trees,... More

As a travel journalist for a Belgian newspaper, I visited many B&B throughout the world. The charm, the tranquility, the luxury and, above all, the warm welcome of Caroline and Masterchef Aloni makes this place a unique experience. We will definitely come back!
