Simploring 2021 (10) Chateau de la Marliere

For my simploring tour on Saturday morning, February 6th, I picked Chateau de la Marliere from scoop.it SL Destinations. The entry led to a blogpost with just a few pictures that really looked nice. What tempted me in addition was, that there wasn’t any other post about Chateau de la Marliere so far.

Chateau de la Marliere is built on a half full, moderate region. It is owned by Antoine De La Marlière (stillgames). The place profile is short, yet inviting “French Chateau open to the public, relax, take a photo and simply enjoy the view

After landing I zoomed out first to get an overview. The place is nicely seperated from the neighbor plots. I had difficulties to make a bird eye view picture as right above the chateau itself was a large platform filled with stuff and plants. For the picture I had to derender about 50 objects. But it worked.

I went exploring the chateau itself first in- and outside. It is fully furnished yet you can see that Antoine is still working, some items are not placed yet, a box with textures is rezzed on the ground, some stuff is still without texture. But I got an impression of how it will look when finished – luxurious with a lot of antique furniture and old pictures on the walls.
You can also see that the chateau shall be inhabited and is not just a museum. There’s a satellite saucer on the roof, a video surveillance cam at the entrance – the private home of a wealthy French family.

Antoine loves gardening and again, he’s not finished yet with building the park, but the layout is made and the buildings have been placed: A glass dome, a gazebo, a stall with horses and a beach hut. There are trails and benches to sit and enjoy. You can literally smell history at Chateau de la Marliere.

The terrace in front of the Chateau de la Marliere is also another living area during Summer. I liked in particular the man reading the newspaper at the coffee table. And of course, there are birds and other animals besides a lot of flowers.
For what reason ever I experienced a lot of lag during my visit and even reducing drawing distance below 100m didn’t really help. I assume that it was either a SL malfunction or that too may scripts were running.

Chateau de la Marliere is a romantic place that offers nice backgrounds for pictures, at least once the building platform is gone. I appreciated that Antoine De La Marlière (stillgames) opened his place to the public although it seems to be a private place and wasn’t built to showcase anything. Thank you Antoine!
