Villa Placida welcomes you !

Have you ever wanted to live the best that life can offer in a historical and luxurious Villa, with exquisite paintings, cozy shores, admirable views and annoying tourists who stop by your gates, envying your lifestyle?
Well, now you can!

Here's some background history...

Required Expansion Packs

All except Showtime

Lot Value
Furnished: 889.683
Unfurnished: 335.446

Things to notice
  • The staircase leading to the basement can not properly be used by sims sometimes. Don't worry: they can go downstair via another nearby staircase.
  • I built the lot in Hidden Springs, though the world is not required for the download. If you wish to obtain a result as the one in my pictures, when placing down the 64x64 lot make sure that half of it is on land and the other half is on water. By doing so, the house should be placed understandably well, without unpleasant distortions on the surrounding area. Just have some critical sense
  • If you want to place it in Hidden Springs: I removed the Vandeburg's neighbours and their house, then placed a 64x64 lot on the shores (half on land, half on water).

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This looks like very detailed lot that obviously took a long time to create and perfect. Well done.

Another creator to add to the rolls of those producing Magnificence. I had downloaded your Hanging Gardens but had missed your first upload.

I don't play any lots, just enjoy exploring the really complex ones.
