I have a 60-acre farm in North Carolina, and I have a tractor and a farmhouse. As soon as I groom the land, I want to put cabins around and have a place where people can write and hang out. It'll be either that or an all-black nudist colony.

WHAT DOES NUDIST COLONY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Nudist community

A nudist community is an intentional community comprising nudists/naturists who choose to live together on a permanent basis where it is understood that no clothes will be worn. The term nudist colony was once a term for nudist communities, especially among non-nudists, but is eschewed by most nudists/naturists due to negative connotations that became associated with the term. There are two objections to the term: the term nudist is not used by European naturists - it connotes a lack of the family-oriented cooperative philosophy, though this connotation does not seem to apply in North America, and the word colony is politically connected with imperialism and authoritarianism, and in such terms as leper colony - by implication, a place for undesirables. It is different in Francophone communities. In France, many communes invested in landed sites by the sea for summer recreation both by adults and children. These were named "colonie des vacances". Most French school children would spend a week or more each summer at a colonie, which are in many ways analogous to the American summer camp.
