Simploring 2019 (2) Maison de L’amitié

Simploring 2019 (2) Maison de L’amitié

Inspired by several entries and pictures on SL Destinations I decided to visit Maison de L’amitié. I had visited Maison de L’amitié in April 2017 the last time (read Simploring 2017 (28) Maison de L’amitié). It was during Spring and it was a complete different sim at that time. Maison de L’amitié is a homestead owned by Corina Wonder. Maison de L’amitié is French and translates to house of friendship.

La Maison de L’amitié – overview

As often I started my visit with a bird’s eye view of the sim. Formed like the letter “U”, the layout is quite unusal. One part of the “U” is connected to the surrounding mountains, the other part faces the sea and inbetween is a fjord with steep rocks. What looks a bit strange fom the bird’s eye view is very smart when you’re on the ground. From there the simsurround fits perfect and provides a pure and natural impression of Winter in the mountains.

La Maison de L’amitié – the ice Skating area

The landing is in the Northwest close to a ice skating area, with a snowman in the center and some deers laying on the ice. There’s an gazebo nearby and the view from the gazebo over the water is really nice. Along the whole West coast is a promenade. It is illuminated with laterns and again you can see some deers. The only house on the West coast is decorated for the season. The promenade leads to the South cap of Maison de L’amitié from where you can see the lighthouse. A truck with Christmas trees is stuck in a snowdrift right at the South cap.

If you follow the road you get to the fjord. Along the road are several places to sit and enjoy. In the fjord you can watch birds and seals. And at the end of the fjord is a waterfall, but you can’t go there on foot as the road ends at another house with a fantasic view over the fjord. The house is decorated for the season as well and I had a look inside – and no surprise the living room is decoarted as well and looks really cosy.

I continued my simploring tour and climbed up to the high plateau of Maison de L’amitié. In the South is a hut and one single gondola, maybe a leftover from an old gondola lift. The hut itself is empty but close to it is a nice campfire under a natural roof with a log to sit.

Maison de L’amitié is a dream with a really picturesque Winter atmosphere. Exploring it is fun and there’re enough spots to sit and enjoy. I liked in particular the way how it melts into the sim surrounding, just perfect. Thank you Corina Wonder for sharing the Winter world with the public. I enjoyed my visit.
