Anceu Coliving is one of those places you’re hesitant to tell others, because you love it so much and you want to keep it to yourself and your social circle.

I visited Anceu Coliving with my husband and our dog during their soft opening month in July 2020. It was an unusually dry and sunny summer in Galicia. And for two weeks, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. It was our first rural coliving experience and we were blown away by the space, the community, and the beautiful natural surroundings.

The accommodations were comfortable, cosy and charming. We loved cooking in the huge fully equipped kitchen, sharing recipes with others, and participating in cooking workshops organised by fellow colivers.

There were plenty of coworking space options, indoors and outdoors. Sometimes I would work from a hammock under an oak tree in the forest or on a sunbed by the pool. I also enjoyed working in the dining room, close to the espresso machine 😂.

They have an organic garden where they grow seasonal vegetables to share with the colivers. The local fishmonger comes by once or twice a week delivering fresh seafood in her van. The eggs are fresh and organic from their kind neighbours. A truly rural Spanish village kinda life!

We especially loved that Anceu is surrounded with nature. In fact, the forest and river are minutes away by foot. We did some waterfall trekking, river bathing and hiking on the weekends. Our dog was in heaven (yes, they’re pet-friendly)!

Some of the colivers generously shared their skills during their stay: yoga and meditation classes, branding and marketing workshops, forest bathing, fitness trainings, tiramisu masterclass, cocktail class, etc. Never a dull moment.

We enjoyed every second of our stay there and fell in love with the community vibe. Congratulations and thank you Agustín for doing such an amazing job with this beautiful project! We love it so much we’re coming back this fall!
