Plaisir De Merle

This is the second build of the walking tour which my brother Irvine and I captured of the family farm which our paternal ancestor Charles Marais and family settled in 1692 after arriving on a French Hugenot ship from north of Paris, France

Gate to Winery To House and Graves using a satellite view.


Instructions – Plaisir De Merle Virtual Tour

If you are not familiar with panoramic tours, these instructions may help.

Open the page at (Feel free to look around my web pages afterwards)

Some of the controls are shown here.


To start with, I suggest that you stop the rotation and close the zoomed in map.

Use your mouse wheel or the map controls to zoom out of the map to make it smaller.

Click on the marked nodes on the map and walk from gate to stable.

You can also enter the winemaking by clicking on the map or floorplan. Here, the map has been zoomed out and moved.


I have only used backlinks where necessary, use the map or floorplan for navigation. Go into the cellar and see whether you can find Irvine.
This tour will run on PCs but not on mobile devices as it requires Flash.
The conversion to html5 is a new process and will be done when I get time.

Features to check out:
