This coliving for changemakers and knowmads is the first work-life balanced coliving just 45Km from Barcelona that attracts professionals looking for inspiration, meaningful change and work-life balance.
The shared areas include a fully equipped kitchen, a comfy living space, a modern bathroom, a great coworking space as well as a multipurpose room where they give workshops, courses or events. They also have an orchard with delicious fruits!
Their concept? A hybrid of artistic residences, business incubators, creative labs, and a hub for entrepreneurs looking for escape into nature and a safe and happy place to work from. This is a house in nature to reframe your thinking: disconnect to reconnect.
Located in the Parc Natural del Montseny (UNESCO Biosphere Reserve), this Stay has been founded on the belief that working in a sustainable, rural and collaborative environment away from the pressures of everyday life in the city can restore and empower people personally and professionally.
More than just a space for coworking and coliving, they also propose mentoring on research, innovation, creation, production and promotion of creative proposals that have a social impact, in the sector of cultural and creative industries (ICC). Every week there are many social activities and adventures. The daily group lunch is a fantastic opportunity to exchange and you can even create your own workshops, events or activities!

Flora and fauna
The accommodation is located in the Montseny Valley (UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) 45 km from Barcelona and Girona.
Montseny is a northern massif isolated from the Catalan pre-coastal cordillera. It includes an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna as it is located in the transition zone between the Mediterranean and Atlantic regions, with very well conserved Cork Oak, Holm Oak, Beech, Chestnut, Pine and even Fir forests, giving way to vast grasslands in the highlands.
The numerous water courses are bordered by riparian forests of Aspen, Willow, Hazelnut and Ash trees. Among the fauna, together with other Mediterranean species, there are species that are characteristic of Central-European ecosystems, such as the Edible Door-mouse, the European Green Lizard or the Aesculapian Snake, and high mountain species such as the Pyrenean Brook Salamander and the European Common Frog. The entomological fauna is also very varied with a rich diversity of butterfly species.
The accommodation functions as a hub for entrepreneurs, other times as a creative laboratory, sometimes as an artist residence or as a business incubator. Hosts and their guests often organise workshops, courses and events.
If you're looking for digital nomads hubs, you will definitely find them in Barcelona, 60 km from the accommodation. It's a very popular destination for digital nomads being a home for over 300 coworking spaces and frequent meetups.
Barcelona and Girona are accessible in a 40 minute ride by the highway or 50 minutes by train.
Barcelona will welcome you with its history which is one of the oldest in Europe, buzzing nightlife, charming beaches and a wide variety of artistic treasures, the Romanesque churches and the greatest names in modern art and architecture such as Dali, Gaudi, Miro or Picasso to name a few.
In this stay, nature and the rolling green mountains are literally at the doorstep. Only a short walk from the local town, the guests and owners are often hosting or joining in wider community events and parties. There are plenty of nice coffee shops and bars nearby with many dietary options, including vegan, for you to enjoy alone or with your new friends.
You will find a dynamic, warm and welcoming community of professionals, explorers and life lovers. The owners of this accommodation have hosted a great variety of people: environmental workers, explorers, performance artists, graphic designers, illustrators, musicians, teachers, journalists, holistic therapists and more.
In this stay, all the services you need are within 5km range including Large supermarkets. The closest town, Santa Maria de Palautordera, is know for hosting the biggest number of artists in the region, giving it an incredible bohemian and welcoming vibe. Not your typical sleepy village.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
