As huge advocates of holiday lets, Vanessa and I were delighted to come across PromoteMyPlace.com a few months ago.
As holiday let owners, thanks to the social web, we have access to a global market place, so it’s important to have a website for your holiday let to drive traffic back to.

PromoteMyPlace is a website builder for holiday property owners and managers. It makes creating your own dedicated website to promote your holiday rentals simple, quick and affordable.
