Stay

Go off-grid in a zany eco-villaPhoenix, United States

Step into the mothership of eco living. This all-sustainable lodging blends functionality with the curves and zany gingerbread house style of Gaudi. Think solar panels, walls constructed from coloured glass bottles and old tires, and a sometimes fireplace/sometimes waterfall in the living room. Don’t be surprised if a parrot swoops by while you bathe – your rainwater bath nourishes a verdant indoor jungle.

This greenhouse shelters chirping cockatiels and a pond teeming with fish and turtles. Peel a homegrown banana, sink into a couch nestled amongst the foliage and you can even forget there is a desert just beyond the door. If you feel up to the challenge, however, there is some prime hiking and mountain biking right on your doorstep, amid the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Scramble up New Mexico's highest summit, Wheeler Peak, which measures more than thirteen thousand feet tall, or simply wake up with the sunrise and admire warm light falling on its crest from afar. Sustainable desert living has never been this lush.
