Idyllic

idyllic

very peaceful, happy, and enjoyable

Used in Charlotte Gilman’s “The Cottagette”

“Don’t be foolish, child,” said Lois, “this is serious. What they care
for most after all is domesticity. Of course they’ll fall in love with
anything; but what they want to marry is a homemaker. Now we are living here in an idyllic sort of way, quite conducive to falling in love, but no temptation to marriage. If I were you–if I really loved this man and wished to marry him, I would make a home of this place.”
