Project details

The aim of this web-site is to provide fast access to the best luxury villas in the island of Ibiza (Spain).

Secretvillas implements several interesting features:

  • Registration and account management
  • Galleries with thumbnails, medium sized images and big version images
  • Tagging system for the features of the villas (es: pool, sea-view, wifi, garage and so on)
  • Auto-complete / suggestion of tags
  • Search (Area, Number of Bedrooms, Number of people, Tags)
  • Result Sorting 

The web-site implements several javascript tecniques for improving usability, presents the skip links menu (Skip to content, Skip to navigation) when browsing by using the tab key to improve accessibility, is browsable with image disabled and has been developed with performance in mind.

The entire web-site is powered by Django, "the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines" and ships a cutting edge backend.
One detail in the backend deserve a note:

In the Villa management application the images of each villa are integrated in the page, it is possible to add/delete as many images as desired by using the appropiate buttons in the page. Sorting the images is very easy, it's just a matter of drag and dropping the images in the desired order.

Softwares and Libraries used:

Photoshop Python Django JQuery
