Dataville draws on the service's database to provide details on the number of advertisers, the number of travellers and where they are from and the median annual revenue earned by holiday home oweners.
The site is very simple to use, asking you to just enter your local commune name, although you can also search by départements or régions of France, with these two requests showing the economic impact in euros instead of revenue earnings.
