Travel to Wales / Wales Vacation Rentals

If you're planning a Wales vacation, do not overlook your options for a Wales vacation home. Wales…relaxation with a twist of castles, gardens, golf, and strong culture. Your Wales vacation rental might be historic, mythical, or coastal, but in any case, worth your while to reserve.

Wales Gardens

Gardens in Wales are recognized for their sheer beauty and historic significance. The Vale of Conwy offers Bodnant Garden, with terraces that resemble the style in Italy, and a fabulous collection of magnolia, camellia, and rhododendron flowers. Well-preserved gardens from the 1600s hail from the landscape around Chirk Castle, near Wales’s border with England. The former estate of Thomas Johnes, 18th century Hafod, has gardens that exist among conifers. The warmer southwest climate caters to a number of flowering gardens, and is home to the National Botanic Garden. Cardiff is known as a city of gardens and parks. It’s very green in Wales!
