Pura Vida is a beautiful hidden treasure in Mimizan. Morning yoga, surf sessions, nice bike rides and delicious food. The crew is truly amazing, I felt at home from the start. Thank you for this precious week. I feel reborn and can't wait to be back!

Wonderful people, location and setting. Very calm and peaceful. The hosts and staff were always happy to offer their time and knowledge. The accommodation and cooking area was clean, and the bar was always available for drinks. Definitely recommend a week here. Can’t wait to return.

What a beautiful place! I just remember the first moment I entered the garden and my face went like: 😍 So many nice places to sit in this cozy place: Huge pillows at the pool, wooden cubes, hammocks, the bar and of course the huge tables at which all guests meet in the morning to have breakfast together. Besides one will find a slackline, balance boards, long- and skateboards, table tennis and many more things to get active with at this idyllic playground. I also liked that there´s a little programme every day. Not too much so that you can take your time but still enough to get the group a bit closer. The surf courses are with one people per instructor so everyone gets enough attention and feedback and improve. Another favourite: the beachcruisers! Every guest will get his/her own at the beginning and can use them to get to the surf spots on a drive through a beautiful. Guests will just notice how much love Alice & Sven put into this place because... how can you not when you see it. To sum it up: Hiiiighly recommended :)
