Making use of Cymru 1's exclusive mapping engine (C1ME), North Wales and Snowdonia Holidays is the official website for the 8 main accommodation groups in the area and provides details on nearly 100 different self catering holiday cottages, farmhouses, B&Bs, caravan sites and campgrounds throughout North Wales and Snowdonia.
To make life as easy as possible for visitors, properties are split into three categories: Self Catering, Bed & Breakfast and Caravan & Campgrounds. The location of all properties in each category is shown as a clear dot on a map. By hovering the mouse over a dot, information on the property appears - including pictures, prices, address and details. Clicking on a dot takes the visitor to the property owner's website for even more information and to make a booking.
In addition to the map view, properties can also be viewed in the form of a list, again with pictures, prices, address and details - and in this case a conventional link to the owner's website.
Although it looks simple on the outside, the scripting technology driving the site is very complex, consisting of many thousands of lines of custom written code.
One aspect of the technology that is not complex, however, is the method used to update property details, such as prices. Changes can be made in seconds with no technical knowledge. It is ideally suited for groups of property owners who have appointed a group secretary to oversee their websites.
The features seen on the North Wales and Snowdonia Holidays website only scratch the surface of the capabilities that C1ME offers. Property searching, sorting by location, price, star grading, online bookings, availability calendars and much more are all possible. Please contact us for details and a quotation.
