Your Hivemate Giuseppe
Hi, I’mGiuseppe, Italian, 33 years old. I moved to the UK last year to work in retail real close to my Hive home. My big passions are fashion, travel, and photography. You can get to know me better on my instagram account @santoguise.
What convinced you to go for coliving as a housing/lifestyle choice?
I’m excited to live in a shared home, because it means I’m never alone and I keep very active. The Hive offers meeting and bonding with new people from different countries, and I find it amazing!
Who would you recommend it to?
I would recommend B-Hive Living to young people from any place in the world, especially those who love shopping (Bicester Village is here), or work near Oxford.
What are your impressions on moving in and staying in our Hives?
The Hive has a warm positive vibe with everyone sharing a large living room space and a seriously wonderful garden!
What is your favourite part of your Hive home and why?
My favourite part is the dining area. I love listening to my favourite music there while looking out at the garden and the sky.
You’re passionate about fashion, aren’t you? What excites you the most about it?
Fashion is a big part of my life. I have been working for my company since 2010. Because of that, I could travel all over Europe, see many cultures, and feel part of them.
What are your top 5 brands to shop in Bicester Village?
Absolutely Versace! Then Versace, and again Versace, Versace, Versace!
How would you describe the community of your Hive? What kind of experience is it to live together?
The community of the Hive is very friendly, encouraging, and sociable. We like to have dinners all together after a day at work!
How is the social life? What activities and places would you recommend in the area?
Bicester is famous for Bicester Village, really good for shopping. Then take your Hivemate, and in 15 minutes you can reach Oxford city with lots of restaurants and clubs.
What’s your fondest memory of staying with us?
My fondest memory of my stay in the Hive so far is a special dinner we had all together that made all of us bond and unite!
