Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Happy New 2006

Happy new year !

2006 will be the second year of renting out our holiday Gite and it's starting out well with five bookings already.

Yesterday we had an enquiry from one of the families in our village about the Gite.
We hold most of the details of the property, photos, places to see, availability, etc on our website so the simplest way of providing a printed "information pack" would be to print off a selection of pages from the website.

Firstly though I needed to write a 'CSS print stylesheet' so that the normal website navigation menus wouldn't be printed - a quick google search to find a good CSS tutorial at A List Apart and the job was done. I still need to do some more work on the stylesheet as the right hand side of the page is truncated with Internet Explorer, but works fine with my favourite browser, Firefox, so I can leave this job for another time.

Receiving the enquiry was a timely reminder that I need to renew our advert in the village magazine. £40 for 6 issues to 280 houses in the village is not bad value for money and hopefully we'll be getting a booking as a result.
