Natural building materials
Moinho das Canas
The inspiration for this one-of-a-kind apartment came from the original Portuguese name of the land, ’Moinho das Canas’, which, freely translated, means Cane Mill. As the name suggests, a lot of cane grows here, and we used this material to decorate this apartment. The use of other natural building materials, such as cork, wood and stone, gives the apartment a truly harmonious feel
You’re surrounded by one
of nature finest building materials
The living area contains a comfy, bespoke sofa, situated near a cosy wood-burner. A tiny oven built into the stove means that, on a cold day, you could even make a fire and cook a cake, should the mood take you. The windows to the front of the apartment grant an amazing view of the valley and access to a beautiful wooden decking area (more than 30m²), complete with outside shower and plenty of space for lounging, sitting, or doing yoga.
On the other side we have a tiled outside area – for extra sun exposure in the morning and on windy days. Through this side you can also access your vehicle’s parking area, located just 30 meters away from the apartment, at the end of a wide, slate-paved path.
Electricity, water, gas, fire wood and super fast fibre internet are included in the price. The building has a centrally backed heating system and has its own woodburner
For guests with children we can provide cots for the bedroom. Younger children can sleep on an extra bed in the living room or, if over seven years old, can use the low mezzanine level – a great adventure for kids (accessed via a small staircase).

“We spent a week at vida pura and it was wonderful! The place is very beautiful and very accurate. The people nice and friendly. It is a little piece of paradise. We hope to come back soon!”
"The appartment itself is great but what i enjoyed even more was the setting, part of a little paradise on a hill, with beautiful views, a farm, a bio pool and other facilities all integrated into the landscape with beautiful views of the valley and surrounding hills. Will come again."
"I appreciate staying in a place where my values and my hosts' values are so aligned. The place felt homey at once. Many details are considered to make it comfortable and practical. What a delight. I did go for a dip in the bio pool my first day. Beautiful. I also took advantage of the farm produce provided. Of special note: enjoy the lemoncello if it is offered!"
