The house is a very big masia which has been documented from XI century as the house of the feudal lords of the area. It’s about a group of houses that were built over the years making it a very big property with rooms for about 20 people. It has dining rooms, living rooms, kitchen, old chapel, interior and exterior, patios, balcony and gardens, and about 27 hectares of forrest, and land and panoramic views to the different mountain areas of the Montseny range.

The masia is fully renovated following the sustainability criteria keeping the original essence of the house and the time, preserving historical and ecological value, and integrating it with the natural surroundings. There are about 10 rooms in the masia. Some of them are shared (two people in total) and others are private.

The rooms have all the necessary equipment, comfortable beds, blankets, light, electricity to connect devices, and some of them with a beautiful view of the different mountain. The masia also offers free use of laundry machine.

The masia has three showers and three toilets within the house. Wi-Fi connection is available in many areas of the house. The kitchen is a very special place as it is fully equipped to prepare healthy and conscious food (juice processor, mixers for juice detox). By the way, one of the main rules of the house is that it is 100% vegetarian and vegan. There is a general heating system for all the house, and in each of the room, dining area, kitchen, halls, and as support electrical heaters and gas heaters as well.

Free time

As mentioned before, OmShanti is in the middle of the Biosphere Reserve of Montseny which makes the perfect place for people who are interested in nature, long walks, trekking, camping, animal sight, bicycle rides, extreme sports such as rock climbing, paragliding, rapids, etc. Also, as in most part of Europe, there are old ruins that go far back in time more than 2000 years old. Therefore, it is beautiful to find them in the middle of nature and also in the villages around, very close to the masia.

There is the city of Vic, which has Roman Colosseum which is used right now as a museum and around it, there is a very old market with many organic veggies and thing.
