Coliving Spain 2022

Coliving Spain 2022 is a project during which Travel & Tapas is visiting different coliving places all around Spain. In collaboration with coliving owners, our goal is to:

  • Showcase the diversity in the coliving movement that Spain has to offer.
  • Support the early coliving movement and local coliving owners.
  • Meet the coliving owners, learn about their stories and promote their ideas.
  • Learn more about the coliving movement from the first perspective.

  • Colivers meet: 70+

1. Awid Aman – La Gomera, Canary Islands

Awid Aman is a sustainable community project currently based on a remote island La Gomera which belongs to the Canary Islands archipelago.

What makes this coliving experience unique is that at the center of its concept are sustainability and collaborative governance – a unique way of organizing and managing the communities.

2. iSlow Coliving – Laxe, Galicia

iSlow is the first family-friendly coliving on the Costa de Morte.

This inspiring coliving place for digital nomads and remote workers to come and enjoy it with or without kids is situated in the small town of Laxe in rural Galicia.

The place perfectly goes with iSlow’s philosophy of slow living, slow food, and supporting the local community.

3. Vivarium – Valencia

Located in the very center of this vibrant Spanish city, Vivarium provides open space for people to express themselves and explore their life paths while enjoying what the city has to offer.

This coliving wants to show that deep connection can also happen in busy cities. It is a nest for thinkers to share their stories and create a network with other like-minded people.

Maraya is a coworking and coliving oasis in a small town called Candelaria, in the beautiful Tenerife North. It’s run by 5 friends, a cat, and their community of volunteers and can welcome up to 25 people.

Maraya is a perfect workation spot with areas to chill and work in that are too many to count. Their philosophy is based on creating a work-life balance and knowing how to let yourself go when the work is done.
