WE ARE A COLLECTIVE
One of our friends at home is leaving in our Cyclo Casa Collective, we search for someone to share the house, the fun, and the costs.
It’s HOUSE SHARING, not renting.
We are a group of female/male professionals, aged 20-36yo mostly engineers, working a lot, with a big passion for recycling, sustainability, social and bicycles.
Our ideal housemate may be from any country, social and artistic persons are really welcome.
We are couch-surfers friendly, we have often guests and anyone is welcome.
We love our multicultural environment where the main keywords are: understanding, respect, and sustainability.
Only NON-SMOKERS. We have persons allergic to smoke at home.
No Drugs at home.
You keep clean around, you like order & organization.
No car Parking space.
Longterm. Preferably more than six months.
We are not doing renting business, we are a contributive/collaborative house sharing: you are going to pay a contribution which is going to decrease with time and in special occasions which include: collaboration, cleaning, maintenance and saving energy/products.
The contribution amount that you see in this ad may seem a bit high, but consider that it’s really ALL included, not just Electricity, Gas & Water but also common costs like Garbage bags, Cleaning products, General maintenance, buying new furniture, appliance, even some basic shared food (Garlic, Onions, Potatoes, tea, etc...).
Remember that in the most other ads they don’t show you the all-in price and they will increase your rent yearly, with us you are going to pay less with the time if you collaborate. ;-)
LIFE AT CYCLO CASA
We believe that living together is not easy, but each of us has to do some efforts in order to make everyday life enjoyable for everybody.
In case of any issue, we are all open to democratic discussions: we discuss on our Facebook Group and during dinner (around 18.00).
We often share meals or share food, we have one refrigerator with shared food and another where each of us has a shelf with his personal food. All food that is about to become bad becomes automatically shared food. We appreciate cooking for each other, if each person is cooking once a week for everybody, we save time, energy, money and it's social!
Each of us has to clean a part of the house once a week; we are strict about it. If this does not happen that person pays 10 euros, which goes to the people who clean.
We are sensitive about ecology and we like to keep our home a place where we waste as little as possible (energy, products & food).
We also care about social, we go from time to time together to bring some sandwiches to people sleeping rough and we may even host sometimes someone who has no place where to go. The house will be used partially for social purposes.
House maintenance and house works are done by ourselves with recycled materials: the more one contributes for the house, the less he pays.
The house is pretty big (250m2), with a lot of common space.
We have an automatic lighting system, autoregulated heating system, and a lot of accessories which you can use.
You can use the shared kitchen, garden, living room, garage (for reparations), and all the shared spaces.
It's an old building but we are constantly working on it to make it more and more comfortable over time.
