In the valleys of the Welsh-English border region, the county of Powys unites the cultures of both countries. Small villages and vast plateaus dominate the region, whose long history as a settlement area can still be seen today in the remains of the Stone Age and Roman times. Small market towns such as Brecon, Talgarth or Welshpool form the cultural and economic centres of the region, which have always served as meeting places for the rural population. An apartment in Powys offers you an insight into the traditional way of life of Welsh farmers and ranchers, whose rhythm of life has hardly changed for decades. Places like Llanelwedd, the small village with the unusual name, still radiate the flair of rural Wales as it looked 50 years ago. From a private accommodation in Llanelwedd you also have it not far to the Welsh Atlantic coast, because the village borders directly on the Snowdonia National Park with its spectacular mountain ranges. Also the coastal towns Cardiff and Bristol are not far away from Powys.
Far away from mass tourism: Apartments in Powys
Rural Powys is characterised by the deep valleys of the Welsh Highlands. Despite its scenic beauty, the county has remained largely undiscovered by mass tourism and has retained its original character. Although Powys does not border the coast, it is not far from some of the most spectacular destinations on the Welsh Atlantic coast, such as Snowdonia National Park northwest of Powys. South of Brecon also begins Brecon Beacons National Park, a rugged mountain landscape that you can cross on the 100-mile Beacons Way. The trail was inaugurated in 2005 when the National Park was included in the European Geopark network. The small market town of Talgarth is also located within the National Park. Holiday apartments in Talgarth are particularly popular with mountain bikers, as the adjacent Black Mountains are a paradise for cyclists. The border area around Talgarth also offers the best conditions for hiking.
