Villa is a Hidden Object Location in the Seeker's Notes: Hidden Mystery game. A doomed noblewoman's once beautiful villa lies frozen in a state of perpetual ruin and neglect with an air of desperate despair emanating from the empty rooms. Unravel the unspeakable tragedy of its sinister past!

Villa was introduced to the game as part of the Inviolable Prohibition Update released on June 8, 2017 and comprised the first part of the update's Timed Challenges.

Villa is the 36th location to be added to the Darkwood Town Map. It unlocks for new players at Game Level 102.

Diary Entry:

Helen told me about an abandoned Villa. According to legend, some terrible events happened there many years ago. Since then, the residents of Darkwood have believed that the Villa is cursed.

Unlocking and Open Quest Edit


Open Location Window for Villa

Villa unlocks at Game Level 102.

During the Inviolable Prohibition special event challenge, Players level 11 or higher were able to unlock this event location.

A quest will be given by Helen to help find the missing Villa Key to open its doors. The Key is obtained by exploring any of the other unlocked Hidden Object Locations and successfully completing it. Once found, Helen will give Players a set of 10 Precious Aigrette Access Passes to start.

Once unlocked, Villa requires Special Item access passes to play. In addition to Energy Points, a certain number of the access pass called Precious Aigrette is required for each play of Villa. The number of Precious Aigrettes needed depends on the Rank of the Location.

Special Items Precious Aigrette

The Precious Aigrette Access Pass

Precious Aigrettes can be found by successfully exploring any of the other unlocked Hidden Object Locations. Regular Locations such as Mayor's Office; Ballroom; Marketplace; Docks; Hunter's House; and Observatory award 3 to 5 Precious Aigrettes upon successful completion. Premium Locations such as Clothing Store; Garden; Ship; and Old Square award 5 to 8 Precious Aigrettes upon successful completion. Premium Locations are those which require special access items to enter.

Once the event ended with the 2017 July Update, Villa no longer requires Special Items/ Access Passes to play and the Precious Aigrettes was removed from the game. Villa is now a Regular Location, requiring only energy to play. Playing this location during special event timed challenges will yield 3 to 5 special event access pass keys per win.

They are often hidden on like colours, eg white gloves on white curtains, gold bar on gold cushion, grey symbols on mirror or glass surfaces, green grapes and peacock feather on garden greenery.
