Our Story
In the picturesque Swiss village of Liddes, where snow-capped mountains embrace the horizon, the story of Coliving.frilingue began. It was the end of 2018 when Stefan, an intrepid traveler with a passion for exploring diverse cultures and landscapes, arrived as an English teacher at a ski camp operated by www.frilingue.ch. Drawn by the allure of the Swiss Alps, what was intended as a brief sojourn became a permanent stay, marking the beginning of an extraordinary venture.

Pele, the visionary behind the language camps, had been nurturing young minds since 2007 in Fribourg, Switzerland. His journey was one of innovation and perseverance, expanding from pioneering language camps to acquiring properties to host these immersive experiences. His endeavors weren't just businesses; they were a testament to his passion for education and cultural exchange.

Both Stefan and Pele shared more than just an entrepreneurial spirit; they were souls captivated by the majesty of the mountains, the thrill of skiing and hiking, and the rich tapestry of alternative cultures. Their lives were narratives of adventure, from Pele's experiences as a ski instructor to Stefan's leadership in the Swiss hitchhiking championship. They both cherished the essence of community living, volunteering, and the belief in a shared life enriched by diverse experiences.

The pandemic, a period of global solitude, became an unexpected catalyst for their community. With people seeking refuge in the serene Swiss mountains, Coliving.frilingue's locations became sanctuaries for those longing for connection and shared experiences. This period solidified their vision of a community that thrives on mutual support and shared passions.

2023 marked a year of significant milestones for Coliving.frilingue. They hosted their first ski workation, followed by an art workation in Braunwald, where creativity painted the essence of their coliving space. Stefan extended their vision to Montenegro, refurbishing a coliving space in Herceg Novi with a vibrant community. The year also saw the inception of the Swiss Nomad Fest, gathering over 80 participants in a celebration of nomadic living.

A groundbreaking moment came in February 2023 with the launch of Europe's first crowdfunding coliving initiative. This venture wasn't just about creating spaces; it was about sharing ownership, a testament to their belief in community and shared dreams. By the end of the year, their vision expanded globally with the purchase of Banko Nomad Fest, setting the stage for the world's largest gathering of nomads.

Coliving.frilingue's journey is more than the growth of a venture; it's a narrative of community, innovation, and the unyielding spirit of two individuals who believed in the power of shared experiences. Their story continues to inspire, inviting more people to become part of a global family that cherishes the beauty of the world and the warmth of togetherness.
