Villa Pura Vida is a 3 bedroom Premier Villa in a unique setting, located between the historic town of Silves and the rural village of Estômbar, in the west Algarve, Portugal. Featuring a helipad, private lake and beach, natural springs, 3 bird watching towers and an infinity pool, this villa is certainly one of a kind!

Set in a quiet and exclusive surrounding along the Arade River, nature has turned this spot into paradise, constantly provided by the freshness of the river and natural springs, protected by hills and shaded by trees varying from fruit-trees to exotic palm trees.


The lake and its beach are the special features of PuraVida, decorated with white sand, palm trees, limestone rocks and art. Next to them, a lounge area with comfortable sofas is covered by an aluminium pergola with fans. The perfect spot to enjoy the quietness. 

The infinity-edged pool and the built-in Jacuzzi can be found on the West side of the Villa. Their water is provided by the natural springs of the premises, duly filtered and without chemicals.

On the North side you will find a covered outside area, a great spot for al fresco dining. 

On the East side of the villa, a bridge leads towards the Buddha garden, A koi pond, a pebble foot-massage pool and the Winter garden are the highlights of this area. 

Three bird watching towers have been strategically placed throughout the property and will allow you to watch storks, snipes, spoonbills, flamingos and many more attracted by the river and the adjacent marshland. Different footpaths lead through the vegetation and art works.

Living room, kitchen and gym

Natural daylight bursts into the spacious living room through a large window and terrace doors. Here you’ll also find a fireplace, a dining area and views to the ground level terraces and swimming pool area.

An open concept kitchen of the Danish brand Uno Form is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster, kettle and portable barbecue grill. The kitchen items are prepared for up to eight people. 

Climate control is provided by an underfloor heating system, as well as an air conditioning system throughout the villa. Temperatures can be adjusted by the home automation system anywhere in the house.

?The spa area has a sauna and a gym with cardiovascular equipment (bike, run and synchro) as well as a Multi Station that allows a huge number of exercises to be done on a single machine.  


Upstairs, two spacious en suite bedrooms occupy the entire floor along with one large terrace that surrounds them. 

The master bedroom is characterised by the large windows, the fireplace and a king size bed for two people. The bathroom counter top is Persian red and includes a double sink, a hairdryer and a magnifying mirror. Apart from the toilet, you’ll also find a steam bath for two people and a big bathtub.

The second room upstairs enjoys beautiful views to the premises and sleeps up to four people with two single beds (that can be made as one king size bed) and a sofa double bed. Its en suite bathroom comes with a high quality laponia green granite slab to provide more privacy to the toilet area. The counter top is made out of the same granite and also includes a double sink, a hair dryer and magnifying mirror. 

Further, on the ground level, you will find a third bedroom with a queen bed for up two people. A bathroom with a separate toilet room is available just next to this bedroom.

Swimming Pool:

Approx. 20m long and 5m wide (free form)

The depths are 0.28m – 1.57m.

      • The swimming pool water comes from the natural springs of the premises and is duly filtered, without chemicals.
      • The pool is made of marble stones, so please be aware that the pool floor is not flat.
      • Depths: 0,28m – 1.57m 
      • No diving allowed
      • Lifebuoy available
      • The pool is cleaned prior to arrival. On a 7 nights’ stay, it is also cleaned midweek, during the evening.
  • On a daily basis, over 4 million litres of fresh water flows on the premises. Please be aware that we’ve created a beach, a moat and other canals for this water to be able to flow towards the river without flooding the property. We do not recommend swimming in any of those. Only the swimming pool has been created for swimming purposes. We do suggest that you enjoy the sound of the water and watching its “wildlife” such as the fish, the turtles, the frogs, the ducks, etc.
