Coliving: Join a Thriving Community
In recent years, Paris Region has witnessed the emergence of new housing models, including co-living that offers the best of both shared and individual living experiences.

It attracts a diverse community and foreign talents for both a foothold and social connections. Among the companies that offer their own co-living spaces: Chez Nestor, Colivys, Colonies, Finestate, Koliving, Sharies…
Some companies focus on co-living within the heart of Paris, such as Coco Community and Homies, while others offer options in the suburbs, including Around Coliving, ColivHome, Cowool, Evry Day Coliving, Ivynest, La Casa, The Babel Community, or Ecla and UXCO dedicated to students. Kley Group also provides separate offerings for students and young professionals, and Open House Coliving promotes shared accommodations with an ecological and sustainable development approach.

Flexliving: Housing Solutions for Part-Time Schedules
If your work or lifestyle only requires part-time residency in Paris Region, startups like FlexLiving, WeekAway, and Blueground specialize in providing part-time housing options. This innovative approach allows individuals who work occasionally, part-time, or predominantly through telecommuting to find suitable housing arrangements that align with their flexible schedules. You can now enjoy an affordable fully furnished and equipped apartment in Paris, only when you need it, whether it's for a few months at a time on a full-time basis or a few days a week on a part-time basis.
In addition, should you or your company need to rent a coworking space during your assignments in Paris Region, you'll find a multitude of flexible workspaces.
Intergenerational Living: Inclusivity and Shared Experiences
Another innovative housing option gaining popularity is intergenerational living. This unique concept involves sharing a living space between a young person (less than 30 years old) and a senior (more than 60 years old). Seniors offer affordable housing in exchange for services provided by their younger roommates. Participating in intergenerational living enables young individuals to combat senior isolation while contributing to rebuilding their social lives, and to gain easier access to affordable housing.
Startups such as Colette Club, Cocoon’Âges, Colibree, Mansiones, Xenia and Fratries facilitate this inclusive way of living and provide opportunities for young people to engage in a unique living experience.
