Sue Riddlestone, CEO and co-founder of Bioregional, visited Les Villages Nature Paris in June 2018 with her husband Pooran Desai, her three children and two grandchildren.
“I was blown away by how lovely Villages Nature Paris is. We all loved being in nature. We loved the peace of it, seeing and hearing frogs and birds, the flowers, lakes and trees. It was very relaxing – made even more so with no cars.
The Aqualagon and its slides were, of course, a big hit especially as we knew it was all being heated by geothermal energy. We also loved the bowling and went three times! Even though the weather was quite rainy, there was plenty to do that didn’t rely on it being sunny.
Having a kitchen in our apartment was ideal – we cooked three meals a day in there and loved the choice of sustainable food at the supermarket. But we would have liked to have been able to compost our vegetable peelings.
We would also have liked to have seen more emphasis on the sustainability features, for example telling the story of the innovative geothermal energy and how to live a One Planet Living lifestyle in the apartments.
We’ve already highly recommended Villages Nature to others, and I think some of our family will be coming back again with friends.”
