Now available on the web – our latest episode, as we visit the beautiful estate of the Coeurs, sometimes called the Duchy, a series of fourteen French baroque regions, each named after a specific region in France.

This is, however, not the highly formalised world of the Court, nor the seething poverty that led to the French Revolution, but a gentle and gracious style of rural living, with the bourgeoisie and the haut bourgeoisie living in beautiful surroundings with beautiful small towns and elegant homes, graced by the occasional chateau.

We are joined on the show by two of the owners of the estate, His Grace the Duke and one of the two Duchesses of the Coeurs – but we have permission to introduce them by their less formal names, as Bedrich Panacek and SkyeRyder Varriale!

In their company, we explore museums, canals, courtyards and carriage rides – because the Duchy has one of the most elegant systems of transportation anywhere in Second Life, as residents can order carriages to come to their door and take them anywhere in the estate. Or – like Elrik – some might prefer to travel by boat and see the amazing locks, based of locks designed by Leonardo da Vinci.

Spring comes in Calas Galadhon

Spring comes in Calas Galadhon

It may be a little early to welcome in spring, but we were out filming on the Calas Galadhon estate yesterday, and it’s looking spectacular.

As lovers of the estate will know, it was closed at the beginning of the month for changes – but now it’s open again, and it’s looking wonderful – and a heady reminder of spring!

You’ll be able to see the show in a couple of weeks – so keep watching the bl;og.  In the mean-time, here’s a jigsaw!
