Cannes (France) - Find your South-European holiday home (with a nifty tool)

(Post by Robert de Heer)

They're using the option to draw polygones on a Google Map, to point out exactly the radius around a certain city. So for example, when one is interesting in a holiday house within a 50 km radius of Nice, the map shows many homes in that area, but a drown radius shows exactly what is within your wanted boundaries.
This is very cool, and I'm wondering: why don't more travel sites offer this?
