Waalhof Holiday Apartments
CLIENT: Martin & Verena Thomann – Waalhof Holiday Apartments
Their new holiday apartments are located in Corces, next to Silandro, in the beautiful Venosta valley between Resia pass and the thermal town of Merano. The valley is famous as one of the driest areas of South Tyrol, that offers mostly sunny days (above 300 sun days per year). The Venosta valley is also the orchard of South Tyrol: wine, strawberries, apricots and mostly apples come from this area. The valley is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Ortler group (Ortles) and of the Ötztal Alps.
Prior to the completion of construction of these new apartments (built above their family home), Martin and Verena needed an online presence with booking facilities. This was good thinking, to get the marketing up and running well before the main season began, ensured a better position to be in once the holiday apartments were ready. They had particular colours in mind for the site and had a hand painted logo to be used with their branding. Once set up they wished to administer as much as possible of the site themselves.
Martin and Verena gave a lot of thought and input into the final design and layout. Joomla! was used as the content management software. An extensive training ‘manual’ including screenshots was created specifically to the areas of administration they needed. This was all done via pdfs and email, and one-to-one training.
