[A cabaña is a simple house at the waterfront]
You don't need a big house if it's nice outside. Coco Cabañas lies at the village edge, at the foot of Brandenburg's highest mountain, in the middle of the Hoher Fläming Nature Park. You will find open-minded people in this region shaped by a long history of immigration. Left to discover in the immediate vicinity are castles, climbing hall, converted concert barn, thermal bath, thriving communities, organic shops, and even an eco-golf course. Without the noise of the streets and the smoggy air of the big city, you will find your place of peace and quiet between fields and forests. Explore the hiking, riding and cycling paths, swimming ponds and streams, find great bustards and wolves, forage fruit from the trees, mushrooms, and blueberries. And for dinner you just pick a delicious wild herb salad.
You don't need a big house if you live in a Coliving village. The Coco Cabañas are located in the middle of the tranquil village of Klein Glien, with just 70 inhabitants a view of the fieldstone church. The volunteer fire brigade is just a stone's throw away and at the village festival you will drink, chat, and play together. In the Tiny House village with about 24 neighbors, community is also a top priority: The land belongs to everyone and infrastructure is shared as a matter of course. Tomatoes are grown and ideas are forged in the old greenhouse, birthdays are celebrated in the former boiler house, a chat is held in the village square, and garden tools and other facilities are shared. Everyone has more when things are shared.
You don't need a big house if your office is right outside your front door. Need a Skype room, 3D printer, or professional video editing suite? No problem. At Coconat you'll find all kinds of workspaces, exciting people, and fast internet. Just behind the barn, you'll find all the infrastructure you're used to in the city. Just one minute away: vegetarian and vegan food, a handicraft café, the maker’s space Cocolab, table tennis, and foosball, a village Späti, a great barrel sauna, yoga and meditation classes, a massage studio, a rustic pub with local beers and whisky, guest rooms, cultural events, and above all an international and local community of creative and good-humoured people. And if you don't feel like picking wild herbs, there is pizza from the wood-burning oven on Saturdays in the summer.
Living in Berlin is beautiful, but many people also long for the countryside. Why not have both? The Coco Cabañas are located exactly between Berlin and Leipzig, not in the sprawling suburbs but in a real village. The train runs from Berlin Hauptbahnhof every hour (in 2022 every 30 minutes!) and in exactly 60 minutes, you are in Bad Belzig, just 6 km away. There are regular bus services, taxis, a newly built bicycle path, and of course various hiking routes that bring you to our doorstep (even an art trail and a barefoot route). For motorized individual traffic (of course carpooling with fellow villagers is best) Klein Glien is easily accessible between the A2 and A9.
You are interested and wonder what are the next steps? Get in touch with us. We are planning an information evening to get to know all potential future Tiny House residents and give further information about the process.
