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 room for about 20 people. It has many dining rooms, living rooms, kitchens, wineries, chapels, interior and exterior patios, gardens, orchards, and about 27 hectares of forest and land. 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 have a beautiful view to the mountain. The masia also offers free use of laundry machine.

The kitchen is a very special place as it is fully equipped to prepare healthy and conscious food, such as juice processors and mixers for juice detox. One of the main rules of the house is that it is 100% vegetarian and vegan. No meat of any kind is allowed.

Things to do (optional)

OmShanti offers different activities depending on the teachers that are living on the house. The activities that are mentioned are not happening at the same time and are rotative, so it is possible that you don't get to participate in all. Additional activities include permaculture work, handicraft workshops, therapy through dance, music, Reiki, Tai-Chi, chi gong, acupuncture, massage, activities for kids, love circles, word circles, psychological work, holy walks through nature, fire ceremonies, movie nights, philosophy classes, trekking along the nature, visit to rivers, waterfalls, and much more.

Some of the excursions into nature will be part of this retreat and some will be part of the self-discovery of people. The places that OmShanti suggests are the Biosphere Reserve of Montseny which has been proclaimed by the UNESCO a Universal Heritage of Humanity. It is full of rivers, mountains, rock climbing, Roman old structures, big variety of trees, flowers, and animals.

Spa treatments are not included in the retreat price and need to be booked in advance. Many kinds of massage, acupuncture, and Reiki are on offer.

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 parts of Europe, there are old ruins that go far back in time more than 2000 years. 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 a Roman colosseum which is used right now as a museum, and around it, there is a very old market with many organic veggies and things. The beach and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea is just 35 kilometers away, about 30 minutes by car and one hour via public transportation. There is a straight train from the house to the sea. The city of Barcelona has so much to say about it for lovers of arts, music, museums, restaurants, shopping, cinema, beach, and much more to do. Anyway, OmShanti is in a strategic area which gives the fortune to be in nature and at the same time to be very well connected to city life.
