Ukio is disrupting the traditional residential real estate market by offering a network of fully-furnished turnkey apartments in Europe’s most desirable cities to allow people to live where and when they want.
In Japanese, the name Ukio translates roughly to “living in the moment”, and this is certainly what the company allows you to do. Removing all the hassle of security deposits and broker fees as well as the scarcity of landlords willing to sign short-term contracts, Ukio provides furnished and serviced apartments for stays of one month or more in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, and Berlin.
With a tech-forward approach, Ukio has created a totally digital experience to simplify the moving-in process and be present throughout your entire stay. The company takes on long term leases and custom designs each apartment they rent out according to their design guidelines, guaranteeing quality and consistency with each user experience.
With virtual or in-person viewings, a dedicated guest relations team and concierge service with optional add-on services (such as gym memberships, cleaning services or grocery delivery), their apartments are transparently priced, powered by renewable energy, and furnished by eco-friendly suppliers.

Ukio was founded in 2020 by French-American brothers Jeremy and Stanley Fourteau. They know a thing or two about real estate, as by the age of 30, they had lived in 15 different cities between them.
Having completed his studies at Columbia Business School in the US, Jeremy Fourteau has worked as Director of Product for companies such as EA and Headspace. He came onto the real estate scene in 2018 working as Director of Product for Knotel and used this experience to found Ukio just two years later.
Stanley Fourteau completed a BA in Economics at Stanford University, and subsequently an MBA at Columbia Business School. He worked his way up the ranks of real estate giant Airbnb, from General Manager of Brazil, to Regional Director of Latin America, to Head of Global Growth for Airbnb Experiences.
