THE DREAM COME TRUE ECOLODGE

THANKS TO A GARMENT

Claude & storz polo armoUr : the origins of an ecosystem

 

The Claude & Storz Ecolodge is the laboratory of a dream. A dream of beauty, nature, abundance, love and connection to the Earth. This dream began with the creation of clothes : polo armour. A garment withholding the intention of revealing the powers of the one who would wear it. Created to make dreams come true. To weave this garment, we needed a cotton capable of enriching soils and Men. This cotton did not yet exist. It’s up to us to invent it at Claude & Storz Dream Come True Ecoldge, the nursery of Vertical Cotton.

WHAT WILL YOU FIND AT THE ECOLODGE ?

Water

Sources, a river, an old watercress farm transformed into a swimming pond with fish and water plants, numerous ponds and streams with their fascinating biotopes to observe during a walk or meditation.

An edible forest.

We love planting as many trees as we can at the Ecolodge. Trees that will feed bees, birds and humans all year round. The edible permaculture forest of Claude&Storz dream come true Ecolodge inspires us surprising -mainly vegan and always vegetarian- recipes. Book at least 24 hours in advance and come and enjoy dishes, sauces, spreads, dressings, sorbets and our inimitable nettles pie!

the perfection of the animal world.

All animals have a role to play in the Ecolodge.

 

Grassland insects pollinate flowers. They are our hardest working gardeners. Their presence attracts storks and small terrestrial predators that feed foxes and badgers at night.

Ducks devour slugs while chickens crowd out flies.

Dogs protect poultry and keep us company.

Gophers aerat  the soil and feed owls and raptors birds.

Fish maintain the balance of ponds, get rid of mosquitoes and feed the heron.  

SOFT POLO GAMES

RIDING LIKE IN AVATAR

At Claude & Storz dream come true Ecolodge, horses and their riders communicate without bit or bridle. Horses roam free and are always ready to play bareback and bridle free polo -we call it soft polo-, connected to their riders by the mane.

 

NATURE

Abundant and free

 

At Claude & Storz dream come true Ecolodge, we feed the soil, to grow an abundance of fruits and vegetables, which feed humans, insects, birds and … soils. On the unplanted areas, wild meadows grow to shelter a multitude of insects and feed birds. Only the polo field and the paths are mulched.

THE ENERGY OF “WASTE”

At Claude & storz dream come true ecolodge, waste is gold !

 

By placing it in the right place, it becomes fertilizer, food, cooking gas… Plastic waste is used to build structures to develop Vertical Cotton -created by Claude & Storz and experienced at Claude & Storz Ecolodge-.
