Coliving in Saint-Gilles

Barely outside of Brussels, Saint-Gilles has the largest non-Belgian population in the area with nearly half a city of foreign residents. Among the French, Portuguese, and Italians, digital nomads also come here for a great coliving experience.

The best ways to get around are by subway, bus, and tram. Cycling or walking are still great options, with a ride into Brussels city center only taking 10 minutes or a 30-minute walk. Taxis are available but only really necessary after 11 pm when transit is reduced.

Being a Northern European Coastal city, St-Gilles has warm, sunny summers around with daytime highs in the mid-70s, with cool nights in the mid-50s. Winters are cold and cloudy, with days around the low 40s and nights dropping to the low 30s.

With just a short commute to Brussels, residents can enjoy everything the city and surrounding municipalities have to offer. With a large Portuguese population, St-Gilles is home to the annual Portuguese festival. While there are epic museums and cathedrals to see in the city, St-Gilles has some nicer, calmer parks to enjoy a quiet day.

Enjoying a coliving space in the capital offers unlimited food options. Some must-try foods include meatballs, Flemish stew, and rabbit with prunes. A Belgian staple is the grey shrimp, which are characterized as being sweet and delicate. Many great local foods come with a classic side of Belgian fries, or you can always grab a cone with a dollop of your favorite sauce at any fry stand.

Here are some fun facts about St-Gilles:

- For centuries it was originally known for its cabbage cultivation until the mid-1800s when the Brussels region expanded
- Belgium was the second country in the world to decriminalize homosexuality
- Karl Marx was among many famous exiles to have lived in Belgium and wrote the communist manifesto in Belgium

Finding affordable communal living in Saint-Gilles

Finding affordable housing in Saint-Gilles can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in Saint-Gilles. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.
