Since 13 December 2012, a Relais & Châteaux application for iPad has been available, free of charge, on Apple’s App Store in five languages. This is much more than just news. Relais & Châteaux has entered the digital revolution, with its interactive gallery of 15 000 dream photos of 520 charming hotels and gourmet restaurants, and the promise of idyllic travel. Now you can reserve more quickly and easily than ever.
‘Relais & Châteaux’ catches your eye with a unique panorama view which appears on your first screen, opening up a stunning new world. It awakens your senses from the moment you see or touch the screen. Touch the ‘Around me’ icon and the four properties closest to you will be displayed through geolocation, followed, if necessary, by 26 others. The ‘Worldwide’ icon offers a different way to search: by category (continent, country, region.) and/or map. Unless you already know the name of your dream destination! The choice is yours.
You can browse from one hotel entry to the next, with practical tips (local weather and time, access map and route via Google Maps, etc.) and fabulous photographs. The ideal gallery! This app contains more than 15 000 images – not to mention the videos – and offers you every opportunity to make future plans, to dream of other worlds and share them by e-mail, text message or on your favourite social networks.
Once you have chosen your property, you can reserve online or by telephone, just as easily as you found it, thanks to its successful ergonomic design.
Down at the bottom of the page there are two further travel icons: ‘News’ to keep you up-to-date with the latest news about the Association and its Members: and ‘Publications’ which allows you to consult all Relais & Châteaux publications, and particularly our 2013 Guide.
From the pages to the windows, browsing takes on a whole new meaning.
