The Good Life France website and digital magazine are a great resource for ‘everything you need to know about France’. The emphasis is on quality content, so we’re delighted that right now the site is featuring advice from French Connections as the editor's pick of the week. It’s on a topic of interest to owners and holidaymakers – the top skills needed for running a successful holiday let.

Our article has prominent position on the Home page of the site and also promotes our holiday lets and their owners with stunning photos that link to the specific properties they show. This is all part of our publicity drive to support our owners and help to get them noticed. The photo above shows Kath and Dave Vowles and their dogs at their pet friendly farmhouse and gites in Ariege, south west France

We all know the difference it makes to a holiday when the accommodation owner is helpful, friendly and efficient. That feeling of a smiling swan gliding on the surface, yet paddling like mad unseen. So what are our tips about the skills that owners need? Well, they range widely from language to business, from people skills to property maintenance.

Whether you’re new to the business of letting or an experienced old hand, you’ll find food for thought in this article – and maybe you have something to add about the skills that you find important. Read our article ‘The top six skills that gite owners need’.
