    Hi Phil! Thank you. I'm glad you like my design. :) I am more than happy to answer your questions.

    Yes, I used the site you gave as reference. The only difference is the navigation menu does not show until the user will start scrolling which is the purpose of the arrow that points down. To give them a hint to scroll down. I can add a "scroll down" text to the design to make it more obvious. Also, in my design, not all of the content for your website will be in one single page. But for every tab, it will have a separate page.

    Yes, an easy way to switch languages can be added to the design.

    I hope I was able to answer your questions. :)

    Dear designers,

    Maybe you noticed I like all your models and I truly mean it. :)

    Actually each mockup has 'something' that really please me. I'd like to share my thoughts but I don't want to offense anyone. :oops: Anyway I know I'll have again to make a very difficult choice.

    Keep you posted. ;)

    @Anna , @Hazel , @Lester , @Michael , @Perci , @Roxsan

    Here are all the things I love, mockup by mockup :

    - transparent top menu
    - title aspect ratio (+ the 'infinite' separator)

    - 'peaceful' homepage (soft colors)
    - the green circle focusing on the relax side of the region

    - general 'layers' design

    - the way the main picture is mixed with the three smaller ones
    - focus on the three main topics : rates/house/location

    - colors requirements fully respected
    - it looks easy to navigate

    - very uncluttered design
    - the way top and bottom sections of the page are embedded with the main picture

    I told you I've been moved by every model in a certain way. :love: They're all amazing and I was spoilt for choice !

    But it's now time to make a choice. I'd like to go on with Lester IF he can (or he's allowed to) use the main title from Anna's mockup, remove the 'La Maison de Léochille/Gite in the Belgian Ardennes' from the top menu, and separate the main picture from the three other ones as Michael did in his mockup.

    Thank you all for your excellent job and your patience. (y)

    Hi @Mildju !

    Thank you for choosing my design. I will be redesigning my mockup according to your requests. I will also include mockups for the subpages. I am currently on another design and will start designing your website once I'm done.

    Hi @Mildju ,

    Here's the redesigned homepage mockup.
    Please review it so that I may be able to proceed
    in designing the subpages.

    Hi @Lester ,

    That's excellent, thank you so much !

    Another five small changes and then I think we're good :

    - can you please apply the same size than in your 1st mockup for the selected top menu (i.e. same green box, more narrow) ?
    - sorry, I totally forgot to remind you to add four country flag icons (France/The Netherlands/Germany/UK) for switching from one language to another... Or any other icons that could fit to your design. ;)
    - I did some changes in terms of colors (see attached file) that I'd like to share with you :
    • the blue of your 'Read more' buttons has been replaced by the green coming from the 'G' logo at the bottom right.
    • the background grey of the 'Latest News' section has been replaced by the background color found on my current website (code #F0FFD0)
    • the pure white used above the 'Latest News' section has been replaced by the #F9FFED color (same as #F0FFD0, less saturated).
    May I have your opinion about these ?​

    Thanks again for your efforts. :)

    Hi @Ruthe ,

    I'm still not done with the subpages. We just finalised the design for the homepage.

    Sorry, maybe my previous message was a bit misleading... I meant 'Green light for starting the subpages'. ;)
