|You need a holiday sometimes and where better to go than France! Holidays in Gites and Villas in France can be so exciting. A whole Gite can cost as little as £50 a person a week. Holiday rentals direct from the owner are a great way to save money in the credit crunch. Yes a holiday in the sun, may be with a pool and near a beach or a golf course can really re-charge your batteries. Only France combines sunny summers, wonderful food and lovey French cottages, Villas and Apartments.|

|Now 'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-Llantysiliogogogoch' can proudly join other famous names on the world wide web thanks to the great Dave.Residents of the village (whose name means St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio of the red cave) hope that visitors from all over the world will be able to learn more of their community.|
The village is no stranger to self-promotion - the name itself was a publicity stunt. Until the 19th century the village on the island of Anglesey was known as Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll (St Mary's church near the pool by the white hazels).
With the advent of the railways and the development of a line between Chester and Holyhead, a local committee was formed to devise ways of attracting trains and tourists to the area. Unfortunately it is not clear who actually came up with the new name but it is thought to be the invention of a cobbler from nearby Menai Bridge.
The village now retains its original name on sign posts, but it is known in Wales as Llanfair PG. With Dave's latest internet venture, it is clear the tradition of finding new ways of attracting visitors to the village has not waned. If you go to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-llantysiliogogogoch and ask nicely, the lady at the tourist information office will pronounce the name of her town. She gets asked that question at least 30 times a day.
Now the longest URL address in the world is really going to make people visit the town.
|Who is the Great Dave?|
The Great Dave owns the longest domain name but he does not live in Wales, he lives in England!
He often gets asked if he can say the name of the town, sorry, he can't.
Why did he buy the World's longest domain name?
A good question. Well on the day he heard that domain names could be longer than 23 characters he thought 'I wonder if that Welsh town name has gone yet'. It hadn't and soon Dave became very famous, the radio and press were after him day and night and people from all over the the world started emailing him. 'It has been an amazing time and thanks to www.FrenchHolidayHomes.com I have been able to relax and enjoy fantastic holidays in France.' Some of the properties on this site have luxury pools and by booking directly with the owners I've saved a lot of money! That's a plug for his wife's company which owns the site.
|Computer's can now talk|
