About Vila Nova de Gaia

Called Gaia for short, Vila Nova de Gaia is known for its importance to the port wine industry. Its location across the Douro River from Porto makes it part of the Porto Metropolitan area, though it’s a sizeable town in its own right, with a population of around 300,000 people. The history of Gaia dates back to the Roman Empire, when the city was called Cale, a name likely derived from its Celtic settlers. You can see this history in many of the city’s buildings, such as the Solar dos Condes de Resende whose construction started in the medieval era. The 17th-century Monastery of Serra do Pilar overlooks the city and can be accessed via cable car. Most tourists flock to Gaia to tour its port lodges. A boat tour down the Douro River is a great way to see the city and learn the history of its role in the port industry. For others, the city’s beaches are its main highlight. Praia de Granja is the most popular for swimming. For photos, visit the Senhor da Pedra, a Baroque chapel built along the water.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
