Our story

Colonies was the dream of three roommates: Amaury Courbon, François Roth and Alexandre Martin

Confronted like many other students to the nightmare of housing, they spent long evenings fantasizing about the future of living.

Inspired by science fiction and Martian colonies, they asked themselves while watching Star Wars for the 15th time: why imagine the future 225 million kilometers away when we can do it right here at home?

And so Colonies was born. Soon after the first houses were open, the start-up became the national reference in coliving. In just a few years, Colonies has expanded into new countries and opened new types of housing, all while reinventing the real estate value chain.

The next step: offer everyone, whatever their age, a home suited to their needs. And this, of course, anywhere in the world... or even the Galaxy.

The team

Some start-ups are born in a garage, driven by sleepless nights. Colonies was born in a flatshare, driven by friendship and creativity.

Since then, 100 new faces have joined the dream of the three roommate-founders, and they’ve made sure that the original spirit lives on. No competition between us, no bad spirit and no sycophancy.

Our values : Empathy Ambition Honesty Agility Joy
