omassim Guesthouse

“Because it is good for my health, I've decided to be happy.” Voltaire (french writer and philosopher 1694 – 1778)
Omassim Guesthouse is an oasis of bright, homely accommodation offering vegetarian food, yoga, meditation, tranquillity, and surfing lessons in Ericeira World Surf Reserve. Guests will enjoy accommodation in one of our three bedrooms with complimentary vegetarian breakfast buffet and access to our yoga classes (3 yoga lessons during the week included in the price). Relax and enjoy the peaceful nature and soak up the sun in our lovely garden. When the weather is cooler, read a book in front of our cosy fireplace, go for a road trip and explore some interesting towns like Sintra, Mafra, the Buddha Eden Garden in Bombarral or Óbidos or just feast on our delicious vegetarian meals!

The region is a mecca for surfers. This area is considered as one of the best surf spots in Portugal. We can arrange a surfing lesson for you with the local surf schools run by professional surfers. Whether it's your first time or you are an experienced surfer looking for some tips, a lesson at any level can be arranged. There is a wide range of beach, point and reef breaks in the immediate area suited for all levels of surfing.

Those not wanting to surf will enjoy many other activities that will appeal to those seeking a wellness break or wanting a more active vacation. The national park is ideal for walking or mountain biking. The trails take you between beaches, along the cliff tops and past famous surf spots. If you just want to lay on a beach or stretch your legs, breathe the fresh Atlantic air, watch the locals surf and be surrounded by the stunning flaura and fauna of Western Portugal, this is the place to be.

Our guesthouse is located in a quiet and lovely residential area in the small village Palhais - Ribamar with an open view over the surrounding green hills. With 10 minutes walk you can find local shops, cafes and restaurants. For those who would like to enjoy a wider variety, the scenic fishing town of Ericeira is only 3 km away. In less than 20 minutes walk you reach the World Surfing Reserve in Ericeira containing the internationally known surf breaks of Praia da Ribeira d'Ilhas, Praia dos Coxos and many more along the coast. We are also only 48 km from Lisboa making us easily accessible from the airport.

A wellness break, a surfing trip, or just to enjoy your holiday
we look forward to welcoming you to Omassim! See more events in this venue
