Namely, holiday makers feel more comfortable booking on-line where they can first read reviews from other members of the public who have gone before them. Arguably many reviews can be quite mixed and one has to allow for the differing expectations of an individual and whether it be modified through an individual’s age or previous experiences. But the fact remains that tried and tested opinions from Joe Public vs. propositions by the travel industry are more likely to induce the comfort factor for the consumer looking to book a holiday. The Social Travel report states …. British holidaymakers see the internet as an extension of word-of-mouth recommendations they receive from friends and family and are more likely to take the word of a complete stranger over recommendations from the industry.. Many of French Connections property owners invite their guests to contribute to an on-line ‘guest book’ of testimonials following their stay. Testimonials are validated through French Connections with the author, so that holiday makers can be sure of authenticity. Holiday makers booking any of the properties on French Connections that offer a testimonial, can rest assured that the comments made reflect the views of guests who have previously stayed at the property.

    Journalist Ben Hatch and his family are touring France and reporting for the Telegraph online travel pages. Last week they stayed at L’Ancienne Vigneronne at Mailhac in Languedoc, which is featured in Ben’s latest report.

    Caroline and Trevor Rodbard were hosts to the Hatches - Ben, Dinah and their two small children - at their 200 year old wine growers house, providing B&B and a home-cooked evening meal. They had some good stories to tell over dinner about the beautiful little hamlet that is now their home. Mailhac has become unexpectedly famous and its mayor something of a national hero after he stood as a French presidential candidate on a platform of preserving rural traditions.

    Under the heading ‘Don’t miss’, Ben Hatch mentions the Mailhac mayor’s fame in his report, as well as the beauty of the evening light. He and Dinah are also working on a guide book to France for Frommer’s, the well known US travel publisher.
