Swansea lies on the south coast of Wales in a stunning bay location. Situated to the west of the welsh capital, Cardiff, it is perhaps not as well visited as that city but if anything provides a more typically Welsh experience to the visitor. A holiday apartment in Swansea from 9flats is a great way to get to know that local population and experience the city. A famously open and friendly people, your vacation rental in Swansea will expose you to their warm welcome better than any tourist hotel could ever do.
Exploring the City from your Vacation Rental in Swansea
Swansea has been an important town since medieval times and was later a popular spa resort for the Victorians. The industrial revolution saw Swansea grow as an industrial city and it is home to the world’s first passenger railway. These days Swansea remains a popular tourist area due to its beautiful bay location, dramatic coastal scenery, beautiful seaside neighbourhoods and atmospheric maritime quarter.
Outside of the city there are long sandy beaches, fascinating medieval castles and miles of attractive coastline. There is a fascinating National Waterfront Museum and the splendid Dylan Thomas Centre, dedicated to the work of Wales’ most famous poet and writer. The nearby Gower Peninsula is particularly lovely and was Britain’s first designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
Choosing your accommodation in Swansea
An apartment in the Mumbles will see you staying in perhaps the most picturesque area of Swansea. Located on a dramatic headland to the west of the city, it is really a separate village with its own character and charm. There are loads of independent shops and cosy cafes and a thriving local arts scene with plenty of small galleries. The village has some of the best restaurants in the area and in Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay, some good beaches too. A vacation rental in Llanrhidian meanwhile, will place you on the beautiful Gower peninsula. Here you can enjoy spectacular views over the estuary and onto the salt marshes. There are good beaches at Llanrhidian sands and some fine old churches to explore. In the evening the village is famous for its spectacular sunsets.
Moving on from Swansea
It would be a pity to leave Wales without visiting the principality’s capital and a holiday apartment in Cardiff will provide your base as you do just that. This is another city with a proud industrial heritage that is now emerging as an attractive and vibrant post-industrial centre. The city’s extensive old docks are now home to a modern and cosmopolitan urban centre. Leaving the UK, a short trip across the Irish Sea will take you to a vacation rental in Dublin where you can enjoy some great craic and a fine pint of Guinness. 9flats.com saves you money while bringing you great local accommodation, so book now for an authentic travel experience.
