Long a stalwart of traditional family holidays thanks to its many points of interest, its rugged scenery and dramatic coastline, Wales is now making a name for itself as one of Europe’s most unique luxury travel destinations. In addition to its stunning scenery – Snowdonia National Park immediately comes to mind when one thanks of that dramatic Welsh mountain landscape – Wales is also home to many first-rate luxury hotels and luxury cottages, as well as unique accommodation experiences including stays in historic country mansions.
The country’s capital, Cardiff, is not without its appeal, either. Located in the south of Wales, highlights include touring the city’s well-preserved medieval castle and shopping in its old arcades and cobbled streets. It’s also a stone’s throw from the country’s top golf courses and its best parks, including the picturesque Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks.
