Great place to look around and have a coffee. Lots of nooks and crannies to play hide & seek! Count the steps in the tunnel. They do have some strange rules about being able to serve drinks by the water and the gents toilet is weird. I think you can now rent rooms and stay overnight.

Don't be put off if you have no interest in Omar Sharif because his transient ownership should have no bearing on your visit. This home again designed around the natural landscape is stunning. Cesar designed but didn't execute this one but it's fantastic. Start your tour on the outer edge down to the pool then up to the bar and... More

We discovered this place by accident, it seems to be much less known than other Manrique-initiated projects. Its Omar Sharif selling point is irrelevant, this house stands its own ground and is just as interesting as the Manrique house in Tahiche. It's obvious that not many people have lived in it as the interior decorations are rather impersonal, but as... More

Like a Dr Seuss house designed by a architect! Kids loved exploring the maze like passages, alcoves and rooms. Photo opportunities galore. Would love to have gone back later when the bar was open. I suspect the place sees some awesome parties. Highly recommended.

We are residents in Lanzarote but have never visited Lagomar so decided to do so with some relatives. Even though its main claim to fame is that it once belonged to Omar Shariff, I think it holds its own as a very unique, and somewhat quirky building. Its always nice to see buildings built within the natural rock formation and... More

This is a much underrated attraction, just the story of how its one day owner, Omar Sharif, lost this truly unique house in a game of card is worth the visit alone. High up in the Village of Nazaret, just off the road from Arrecife to Teguise sits this beautiful house built into the rock face. From the outside it... More

This is a tour round the house that Omar Sharif lost in a bridge game. It is set on so many levels which have been carved out of the rockface you must be able to climbed several flights of stairs to enjoy the splendour of the property. Although we have been to Lanzarote several times before this was our first... More

Set into the rocks with fab views and nooks and crannies hidden round almost every corner, this interesting architectural gem is well worth a visit. Truly a 'one off' in terms of design and historical reference, give yourselves plenty of time to explore and enjoy a coffee by the tranquil pool

A very nice place, an impressive visit. Very nice architecture, one of the most beautiful artworks of Manrique.

Our 10 yr old daughter picked up a leaflet about this and insisted on going! It was a real surprise and we both loved it. If we return to Lanzarote we would go back to use the bar or restaurant. As it was we spent a very enjoyable 45 mins exploring all round, including the house. It was a very... More
