Mas de la Quintine is a private luxury holiday let nestled in the beautiful Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of France. Concealed from the narrow country road, the large main gates open into a portion of paradise, revealing the stunning main house, perfectly manicured landscaped garden, idyllic swimming pool, petanque court, the annex; a barn converted into luxury living quarters.
The owner is Paul Cleworth, an existing Striking Places client, who previously commissioned a virtual tour for his Luton-based company, Tandem Financial. As well as being very tech savvy Paul is also a very astute business owner and quickly saw how a Google Virtual Tour could benefit his property in Provence.
Paul wanted to promote absolutely everything the chateau had to offer, something that simply cannot be conveyed with a few photographs and some text. Unlike still photographs or videos, the 360 virtual tour shows the property in its entirety and accurately reflects the layout and design of the rooms, suite, dining areas and facilities, giving the viewer a real sense of the beautiful accommodation and surrounding grounds.
Clients booking holiday accommodation always have the same worries and anxieties. Will the property look as nice as the photographs? What will my bedroom look like? Is the kitchen big enough for the whole family? How big are the grounds? Anxieties such as these cause customers to hesitate at the point of booking. A Striking Places virtual tour is the perfect solution, providing guests a realistic preview of what they will find when they arrive.
The online virtual tour is the perfect addition to the Mas de la Quintine website and will also be embedded on the property’s Facebook page, undoubtedly giving Mas de la Quintine an advantage over the competition and also maximising exposure of the accommodations 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
Paul was so happy with the tour he commissioned the team to add the TourDash interactive overlay to further enrich the user experience.
The virtual walk-through includes simple menu navigation and information hotspots that reveal text, graphics and photographs at this initial stage of the project. Future additions will include video and links to the online booking system.

“Striking Places are an excellent firm of photographers. Very friendly, very professional. I have used them to take pictures of my office, create a virtual tour of my new offices, as well as my holiday home in Carpentras, France (Mas de la Quintine, @holidayinprovence) and for our company golf day. You should also use Striking Places for your photography and video needs.”
