Sende is one of the the oldest rural coliving spaces in the world. More than 3000 persons from 59 countries have stayed in our village.

If a spectacular view  is not enough, you may find here 🛏️ and kitchen with open source recipes 🍝 and creative workspaces (read: the bar in the office and sweet corners with birds and flowers).

You can meet some fantastic people from all over the world who are here to work or to host an event.

Sende is an ideal location for hiking🚶🏾 and biking 🚴🏻. You can actually cross the border with Portugal, see wild horses, by following the mountain trail.

Also we organize different retreats so you can join us at one of the Spanish islands or we can just go camping on the Portuguese coast.

When we are not working, we are probably spending time at one of the natural swimming pools, hiking or discovering nearby villages.

When you wake up in the morning, there are no traffic lights and other micro stresses.

You just grab your freshly squeezed orange juice and a coffee and you get to work.As we like to say, Sende is a place where deadline does not hurt.

Dinners in the garden

Our long dinners are very "serious". It's the place where many important decisions, partnerships and ideas are made.

Coworking spaces

Fast internet with a window view 🏔️

There are two coworking spaces in Spanish Sende. With individual and shared desks & comfy chairs.

Internet speed is pretty fast and stable for a village in the middle of nowhere with average speeds of 160Mbps download and 180Mbps upload).

It means that you can send huge files, attend a boring meeting and secretly watch Netflix at the same time.

Both coworking spaces are easily transformed to a space for events, talks or concerts.

This is the view that you will see from coworking spaces. The same view that made us start a coliving space right on this spot.

Quote in the INC. magazine where it says that Sende is one of the coolest retreats in the mountains

Sende's productivity tools:

🍃 Fresh mountain air for a good sleep (we recommend 9h sleep, with the optional siesta). In the summer, the sunset is around 22:30, so you will have a plenty of daylight.

⛲ Pick a fountain or a tap and drink a fresh water that comes directly from the spring.

🦉 You may pause Spotify and listen to singing birds and streaming water while working. Nature is everywhere you look.

🍅 Food is cooked and ingredients are coming from the village gardens and local markets. You will eat well while knowing who planted tomatoes. We created menus for the productivity while BBQ is reserved for the lazy days.

🐢 Feel free to do some sports. In Sende you can swim, hike or ride a bike.

Come for the nature, stay for the amazing people - starting with the founders themselves, Maria & Edo! They've managed to foster community spirit by sharing food and meals, trips and hikes, even hammocks and cats! They've brought back to life centuries-old stone houses and created spaces to work - both indoors and outdoors.

Did I mention mushroom hunting, fresh bread delivered daily, the natural pool, the TED talks, or the nightly family dinners?
Everyone needs to experience what Sende offers - tranquility, inspiration, even productivity!

A testimonial by Ondrej

I came to Sende based on the recommendations I found here. Other than that, I did not have any expectations and I just came for a month. When I arrived, it was love at first sight.

I fell in love with Sende. This place is amazing for work, relax, focus, creativity and everything else you need.

The best thing about Sende are the hosts - Maria and Edo. After a couple of days, it felt like visiting a family.

On their website they say "we are not a hotel" this is true - because Sende is something much better. Sende is an experience. Experience of friendship, co-living, co-working, co-cooking, sharing and caring for each other, giving and receiving. Amazing people come here. You can be one of them.

I will come back for sure.

P.S. Sometimes you can "smell the countryside", there is no AC or TV in the rooms, so if you care about that, Sende is not for you. :D :D :D
