Portmeirion Italianate village in Snowdonia

Portmeirion was the brain child of Sir Clough Williams Ellis developed between 1925 -1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful landscape could be developed without spoiling it. The result is his unique and charming pastel coloured Italianate village along the southern shores of Snowdonia surrounded by 70 acres of sub tropical gardens, wonderful woodlands and lakes with miles of enchanting pathways to explore.
