Sometimes your rental property needs more than just an anonymous listing on a third party page.
We can design, host and publish your very own webpage so you can tell guests exactly what they need to know.
The best places to list your rental property is undoubtedly Airbnb and VRBO (HomeAway) but there are other rental listing sites that also work well.
However having your own website means you can take more direct control of when and where your property is marketed.
You can post a link to your website on social media (Facebook, Twitter etc) and capture your audience directly. Help people find your property and learn about what is going on in the area beyond your four walls.
There are many rental specific Facebook groups that you can post to that will target people looking for a rental in your specific area. A link to your website will ensure they see your property in its fullest glory.
Magazines and Publications
If you choose to take out an advert in either a printed publication or an online version it is imperative that you can have a link to your own site.
Choose your own domain name
The domain name is basically the name of your website and as long as it is available, you can choose whatever domain name you want. If you want your website to be called www.a-gite-in-france.fr then your domain name is "a-gite-in-france.fr".
Your webpage will adapt to all devices.
You can choose any available domain name with a .fr or .eu ending.
One domain name is included in our price but we can buy others for you to stop someone trying to copy you.
[eg. a-gite-in-france.fr is different to a_gite_in_france.fr].
If your property is within an hour of our base we will go there to get a true feeling for the ambiance of the place. That will enable us to choose a design that is on keeping with your property and we will then design the website around that.
We will ask you for some photos (50 max), preferably made up ready for guests and we will also ask you for any specific text you might want included but other than that we will do the rest for you.
A website needs to sit somewhere and this is called hosting. There are specialist companies that do nothing else other that allow people like us to place our websites on their computers for the world to see.
Our price includes the first years hosting and we have selected a hosting package that also includes an SSL certificate for your site. This protects the page from hacker interference as well as providing the trusted browser padlock to show people your site is safe,
We have also selected a package that is rich with SEO features. This will enable us to embed key words throughout your website that will enable search engines such as Google to find your website and in turn show it in their results pages.
The implementation of key words and SEO registration is included in our price.
Our initial price includes a website made up of three pages.
The Home Page to entice people in with, a second page to give them all the information they need to decide your house is the best they have ever seen and then a third page to tell them what is to be seen beyond your garden.
This is just a recommendation and is, of course flexible. Additional pages can be added at an additional cost.
This is your start up package that will provide you with a website for the first year.
These items are optional but will incur additional fees if chosen
Your website package includes 3 pages but more can be added if you have more to say.
The cost of a domain name depends upon the name and the extension (eg. .fr/.co.uk/.com).
Please let us know what you might require and we can provide a price.
Your website package includes up to 50 photos but more can be added if you want to really show your property off.
This price is per each 25 additional photos.
Once your design has been finalised and published your website package includes up to 3 small changes in the first year.
Should you later decide to make any significant changes to the style or content of the website, then this additional hourly fee will be applied.
If you are unable to provide photos, we can visit the property and take them for you as long as it is within 1 hour of our base.
This does not include a cost to prepare the property for being photographed, if required.
The first years hosting is included in the Website Package shown above.
You will need to pay for your domain name and website hosting each year thereafter at the cost shown here.
This is an annual fee, payable in advance of the subsequent year(s),
