Hi there, we are

If you have gotten to this point, it is because you are dying to find out who is behind this project. Well, yes, we are Cotown, a very enthusiastic team with wacky ideas who are ready to set new trends, because – what good is it to follow the trends?  100% of our energy is devoted to making you feel like an authentic “happy camper”; the star of a Netflix film with a great flat in the centre of a very cool city.

OK, but, what is Cotown? It is a custom-tailored project for all those who decide to study or work in cities like Barcelona or Valencia and want a living space where they will not miss home, because it will be like home. We are not fond of labels, and we do not discriminate based on age or academic status. A young professional or a student, that doesn’t matter: what is important for being a good Cotowner is wanting to enjoy new experiences as if tomorrow will never come.

And so, we introduce to you the crew that is behind making this entire world possible. Let’s get started!

We create lucky citizens. Yes, those typical Netflix movie protagonists with a big apartment in the center of a very cool city.

Becoming independent is not easy, especially when combined with a university degree, bachelor’s or master’s degree. Facilitating this process is our specialty.

The perfect place to experience community, campus and student life. A very 360 brand with a very good vibe.
