Simploring 2019 (50) Maderia Springs

Once again I picked the destinazion for my simploring tour on Thursday, April 11th, from SL Destinations. There’re already a lot of blog posts about Maderia Springs and just lately I saw it again. Time for me to visit myself.

Impressions of Maderia Springs (1) – orientation map, fishing hut and manor

Maderia Springs is a moderate homestead owned by Thaihiti Baroque. According to the landmark profile it is a place to hang out, to enjoy the peaceful scenery and to take great photos. And it is just this and it is fun to explore it. Maderia Springs is set to Spring now, the flowers are blooming, in particular some cherry trees were just blooming during my visit (as in my garden right now). The whole setting seems to be Mediterrean with a British and American touch.

Impressions of Maderia Springs (2) – the manor

The landing is on a road the leads to a fishing hut. If you walk in the other direction you’ll get to large residential house, that I named “Manor” in my orientation map. What caught my eye immediately is the lovely seperate garden at one side of the manor, surrounded by stones. Besides this seperate garden the whole garden is decorated with love for the detail. Just beautiful.

Impressions of Maderia Springs (3) – the cafe

My next stop was the cafe. You recognize it easily by the French truck in front of it which offers cakes and more. There are some tables outside to sit. Inside is a large kitchen and a living room. The kitchen did impress me with all the little details. Even the pans on the kitchen stove were filled with food. And the backyard once again offers nice views.

Impressions of Maderia Springs (4) – Summer hut and Chapel & Event

Close to the cafe is a flower store. Again I was impressed by the many details and enjoyed looking at it. The whole sim radiates a particular atmosphere. Walking to the shore I came to a hut with a pier, that seems to be another fishing hut. I called it “Summer hut” and took a break enjoying the the views.

Impressions of Maderia Springs (5) – Shepard’s house and Farm market

My next stop was the chapel. It’s more a place for weddings then for services and the chapel is decorated for weddings. Nearby is a place to celebrate and for the reception with fingerfood and drinks. Did I mention the blooming cherry trees already?

Impressions of Maderia Springs (6) – Garage and Picnic

I continued my exploring tour on the other side of Maderia Springs and walked over to what looks like a farm. Sheeps and cows are grazing peacefull there and on the hill is a house. It doesn’t look like a ranch or farm, hence I decided that must be the place where the shepard lives and named it “Shepard’s house”. But there’s even more to discover at Maderia Springs. Walking back to the manor I came across some ducks that were swimming in an inlet. I saw horses and a nice farm market. I saw a picnic place with the opportunity to sit or to retreat under a shabby tent. And I finally saw a garage and camping place.

A visit to Thaino Designs, the shop of Thaihiti Baroque (owner of Maderia Springs)

Maderia Springs is a lovely sim, very well done and perfectly decorated. I just love the Spring setting. And I really appreciate that it is fully public. Thaihiti Baroque is also the owner and designer of Thaino DesignS, a shop for shabby chic, upcycled, distressed furniture and decor, for garden items, flowers and plants and much more. I went over to the store and had a look. At least some of the items you can buy there are also used at Maderia Springs (no surprise!) like the stand for the flowers.

Thank you Thaihiti for sharing Maderia Springs with the public. I did enjoy my tour!
