New Sandboys Mobile Website

A new “mobile friendly” version of the Sandboys website


hardware androidSince more and more people now access our Sandboys website using tablets or mobile phones, we’ve been faced with the choice of either simplifying the site to make it faster to load (important if you are paying mobile data charges) and easier to read on a small screen, or creating a new “Sandboys Lite” website especially for mobile users.

Since Google recently announced that their search engine would automatically demote the ranking of sites that were not “mobile friendly”, we took the decision to create a new mobile version of our site designed specifically for users of small screen tablets and smart phones.  All the important details of our holiday gites are included in the new site, but we’ve left out a lot of the photos as well as most of the additional information about the region and its wonderful tourist attractions and facilities.

All this information can still, of course, be found on our original “desktop” website, which although designed for viewing on normal and larger computer screens, is still readable on most hand-held units.  Eventually much of this background information, omitted from the new site, will be transferred to posts here on our blog, and linked to from the mobile site.

In this way we hope we’ll be able to satisfy the needs of all our customers and site visitors, whatever kind of screen they choose to view our site with.

Self Catering Family Holidays – now all with free WiFi

Seaside holiday accommodation in FranceFor your best-ever family holiday, choose a Sandboys seaside house or an exclusive family apartment, in one of France’s most accessible and unspoiled regions – the Opal Coast, only an hour from Calais.

For couples (or very small families – parents + 1 baby under 2 years), we’ve created a romantic hideaway in the privacy of one wing of our palatial country house just a few miles inland, with superb beaches just minutes away in one direction, historic towns and lush green countryside in the other.

We’ve already been providing family holiday accommodation in this part of France for over 11 years, but we’re not content to stand still. Sandboys is a business committed to moving with the times and keeping up with the changing tastes and requirements of our clients, so all our holiday homes are equipped with flat screen TVs, DVD players and, of course, free WiFi.

Sandboys Dune – Family seaside house – sleeps up to 5

The Pines – Large family size accommodation in the entire East Wing of a spectacular house – sleeps up to 7

The West Wing – Spacious one bedroom apartment for couples (or 2 + 1 baby under 2 years)
