Simploring 2022 (12) Sainte Rose sur Mer & BarDeco

After my visit to Frogmore Summer 2022 & Finnygook Cove (read here) I had a nice chat with Dandy Warhlol (Terry Fotherington), who designed and landscaped Frogmore. I have come across sims, that were designed by Dandy, quite often, just search the blog for “Terry Fotherington”. Dandy is quite active and renowned for his sim designs.

Dandy asked me if I saw his own sim already: Sainte Rose sur Mer & BarDeco. I had not and I went there right the next day.

Sainte Rose sur Mer & BarDecois a small french village where you can relax by the sea and listen to the best second life Djs in BarDeco“. This landmark description fits very well.
Sainte Rose sur Mer & BarDeco is built on a parcel with a capacity slightly above that of a homestead. It is a showpiece of what can be built even with limited prims.

I started my visit at the BarDeco. The entrance is right you where you land. The bar is located in a large backyard. It has enough space for smaller events and of course a lovely bar. They serve quite big drinks there *winks*. Leaving the bar on the other side leads you to a cosy and romantic oasis of silence where you can watch the waterfall and just relax.

I continued my simploring tour walking up and down the street where I landed. It is a typical street of a small town in Southern France, offering places to sit, just picturesque. I only missed a few elderly people playing boule. I’ve been to Southern France very often, small towns really look like this. I simply enjoyed the views.

Quite typical are the small backyards and places to sit and relax. Life is happening not inside but outside in front of the doors or in backyards that offer shade and are a bit cooler. I found quite some place to sit and watch. Dandy decorated Sainte Rose sur Mer very well, he has an eye for details.

The main attraction of Sainte Rose sur Mer is the promenade along the beach, a jewel for tourists. You can literally smell the sea and immerse into a small short trip to South France. There’s a cinema, a café, a pizzeria (look also inside) and a light house on one end. And there’s the beach of course.

What is missing to make it perfect? Yes, artists that paint the idyllic scene and sell their pictures to tourists. You find them at the other end of the promenade. From there you also have a great view over the whole promenade and the beach.

Sainte Rose sur Mer is lovely place in Second Life to take a time-out, to dream and to enjoy yourself. It offers lots of places to sit and many great backdrops for taking pictures. It’s also a perfect showcase of sim design. I did enjoy my short trip (and took quite some pictures)!
Thank you Dandy Warhlol (Terry Fotherington) for sharing your place publicly.
