Coliving in Portugal as a Digital Nomad
Portugal is becoming a hotspot for Digital Nomads from all over the world, whether they’re just starting their journey as a Nomad or already used to this kind of lifestyle. Also for Entrepreneurs and Startup founders, Portugal is becoming a central hub. Many of them are also embarking on their first experiences in Coliving and Coworking. With beautiful beaches and a handful of other opportunities, it’s no surprise that Portugal is one of the most popular places to live in the world.
Of course, Nomads also need to find the right balance between pleasure and work, which is something that should be taken into account if you also want to get stuff done. In this article, we take a look at the potential advantages of being a Digital Nomad on a Coliving trip in Portugal and how being surrounded by a Community can help you to make the most of it.
What Is Coliving About?
As the name suggests, coliving involves multiple people sharing a home. This is typically for a short period of time (a few weeks), but in some cases, people also decide to stay a bit longer (a few months). When choosing a coliving space to stay in, you can expect a fully furnished property, with amenities included as standard. Some homes also contain a separate Coworking space which gives its residents a huge benefit: We all know that working in the same room where you sleep can be tiresome, and it’s also proven to restrain your efficiency. Thus, a dedicated office space can help you to get your work done properly. And being surrounded by other working housemates can also be a boost for your motivation and inspiration.
The Benefits Of Digital Nomad Accommodation In Portugal
Now that we’ve touched on coliving briefly, let's take a look at the advantages. Some of these points will apply to all forms of digital nomad accommodation, while some will apply exclusively to the Algarve region in Portugal!
While sharing aspects of life with newly found friends is definitely an exciting prospect, there are some times when you just want to be alone. Sleeping and showering are perhaps the two best examples of this. Many places in Portugal offer a private bedroom. Some of the finest resorts also offer an en suite bathroom to all guests for maximum comfort and privacy! And if you need some space for yourself or some important calls, it’s good to have a desk in your room.
Being a digital nomad can seem lonely at times, especially when you arrive in a new region where you don’t know anyone. And something that you’re missing out on when staying in an Airbnb just for yourself is the Community aspect of Coliving. There is already a huge community of like-minded people around that are on a similar journey. Living under the same roof and sharing common space with them is something all can benefit from. As you can imagine, this gives you the perfect opportunity to discuss anything and everything with people that likely share a similar thought process. Many people that join a coliving and coworking space have found friendships or business relationships that can last a lifetime! Becoming part of a Community during your stay is something you can expect when coliving in Portugal.
It’s no secret that Digital Nomads can sometimes struggle to find the optimal balance between work and pleasure. However, this is the main reason that many decide to become a Nomad in the first place. In Portugal, there are plenty of beautiful beaches to visit, amongst a huge variety of other popular attractions like hiking trails, surfing or meet-ups. And the best thing is, the weather will most likely be on your side. With more than 300 sunny days per year, the Algarve region of Portugal even beats California in terms of sunshine all year around. During winter the temperatures stay quite mild, making it a perfect escape during the cold and grey times in most other European countries.
And if you have these beaches only a short walk from your accommodation, you can even go for a swim in the ocean during your break. That’s life at its best!
As previously mentioned, the most desirable form of accommodation for sociable Digital Nomads is a Coliving space, especially when it involves having a private bedroom. A big plus would be an attached Coworking space on the same property so that you don’t need to commute to a different location solely for work. Besides that, it saves you some money since you don’t need to purchase this extra service. What makes a Coliving experience so special is that you're being surrounded by other fellow Nomads, making you feel instantly connected to the new place, instead of sitting alone in an Airbnb, which can be very tiresome if you're a social person. You'll also meet friends you haven't met yet and share inspiration, stories, experiences and time together. Cause that's what digital nomadism is also about: uniting with other people along the way who share the same lifestyle. Especially if you're about to start your journey as a Digital Nomad, it can be a boost for you to really embark upon that new path. You'll experience how beautiful and liberating the life of a Digital Nomad can be, strengthening your decision and inspiring you to expand your comfort zone more and more.
