Coliving: a space to foster social inclusion

In the world, the coworking, cohousing and coliving realities in which people work, live, or work and live in communities are increasing in number and size, sharing space, time and relationships.

In spite of this, if you search on the internet the definition of coliving it is not easy to find a clear and simple answer .. but for us one thing is certain: the most important aspect of a coliving is the community and the capability of the host to create connections between travelers and local people. 

Coliving in this sense is a real mission for us.

Since 2012 we have been hosting people from all over the world in Matera to create exchange opportunities with the inhabitants of the city and its Region. Basilicata is an unspoiled country of southern Italy that needs a lot of energy, visions and innovative ideas in order to grow, and therefore meeting with people from the rest of the world is vital.

Coliving thus becomes not only a way of sharing living spaces, but a real way of promoting culture and social inclusion.

Over the years we had the privilege of hosting digital nomads, designers, curious travelers, couples and families.
Each meeting was unique and started new friendships and important opportunities for cultural exchange. 

In 2018, for example, we hosted Brent Hartiger and Michael Jensen, a couple of American origins;
they are both digital writers and nomads and for about three years they have decided to travel the world and be inspired by the places they visit for their work. For this reason, they’re constantly looking for an optimal accommodation that meets all their needs.

They lived with us in our home in Italy and with our community throughout the summer, and in their words summed up everything that means coliving for us.

“Casa Netural really is truly unique compared to other co-living facilities. For one thing, Matera itself is spectacular, very very much worth visiting. So many wonderful memories of the Sassi, which is the most fantastic place we’d never heard of before arriving somewhere. (more…)

Co-living: working, learning, growing and experiencing together in a dynamic environment. This is Casa Netural and The Surf Office. A place where professional and personal lives run simultaneously – 24 hrs a day at 360 degrees. A holiday that goes well beyond postcards and fuses inspiration with vacation.

In Matera, Southern Italy, and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, you can enjoy co-living in two magical and energising locations.

Casa Netural in Matera offers a refuge in the historical Sassi, an area of cave houses and raw nature that has been inhabited since the Paleolithic era. Your home is the hub of activity among local co-workers and visiting social entrepreneurs and often the dinner table for pasta feasts and a glass of vino.

The Surf Office in Las Palmas is a place to work, rest and play taking in the tropical surroundings of the Canary Islands. You will work in a fresh office space among innovators and start-ups by day, learning to surf in-between brainstorming sessions and rest at night in share accommodation among peers and pals.

Casa Netural and The Surf Office have partnered to spread the experience of co-living from the east to the west of Europe and show that life can be so much more. By living with those around us we can gain understanding, support, knowledge and invaluable experience.
