Persephone: A Romantic Place

Looking for that special, romantic place to cuddle and talk with a friend? Persephone Designs and Lovers Island Resort is the perfect place to explore. As words cannot very well describe the beautiful places in SL, Persephone is no different. The gorgeous architecture is reminiscent of greek and roman; however, for lack of a better description, I'm going to settle on "romantic architecture."

The many walkways, arches, and gazebos peek out through lush, green gardens and colorful flowers and flowering trees. Of course, any beautiful landscape in SL would be incomplete without well-designed water features such as lakes, rivers, streams, and waterfalls. Persephone has plenty of those too. The island, of course, is surrounded by a lake, streams meander through the landscape, and a grand waterfall is a focal point next to the castle.

There are many couches and benches throughout Persephone that include many pose balls. So finding that "perfect" setting to sit and chat shouldn't be very difficult. And, if you choose to go beyond romance to "sexy pixels," options are throughout the island for you, too.

When arriving in Persephone, you arrive at a large "parthenon-like" structure that sits high upon the island. The structure contains a dance floor and fountains. I've seen this structure set up for weddings in the past. It's the perfect place for a wedding.

The island has it's own transport system to take you quickly from one part of the island to another. The teleport pads, which are round disks with an orange glow, are scattered throughout Persephone. When you click on the teleport pad and wait a second or two, a menu will appear. The menu gives you several location options:

1... Persephone Designs (View and buy pre-built homes)
2... Skyway (Transparent walkway above the island)
3... Castle
4... Hanging Gardens (Planter-like garden area hanging over the island)
5... Lovers' Bluff (Gazebo with couches and fireplace)
6... Lake Persephone
7... Theater
8... Lovers' Cove (Secluded area with a picnic blanket set up)
9... Castaway Club (Dance club and beach)
10... Dock
11... Castle Dungeon (BDSM)

Once you make a location selection, an orange beam will come up out of the teleport pad. Click on the beam and you will be transported. Occasionally, when I visit Persephone, the teleport pads seem to not work. If they don't, don't worry. Persephone is also a great place to explore on foot. There are many romantic "nooks and crannies" to explore.

The castle is a whole adventure on it's own. The castle consists of many levels and has couches throughout with lots of pose balls to sit, relax and chat. If you want to be king or queen for a moment, find the king's and queen's chairs and have a seat. The castle has a bedroom with amenities. The top level is a bath/pool area with pose balls to enjoy.
