About the Owner
The Villa in Spain is our home away from home and we spend as much time out here as possible. The area has so much to offer, with it's beautiful beaches, sunny climate and vast choice of eateries.
The apartment in the Brecon Beacons is part of our family home. It is entirely self contained with it's own entrance and outdoor areas. The location is peaceful and rural with spectacular views across the mountains.

Stunning and spacious
The garden apartment was exceptional with views over the valley, easy access and well equipped. Everything we needed to make our stay perfect was there. We were made to feel very welcome and the little extras such as chocolate biscuits, made it all the more welcoming. We would recommend this to anyone.
A lovely stay - great views!
Had a good weekend here with friends. A warm welcome when we arrived and lots of helpful information/recommendations. The apartment was a great size for the three of us and had everything we could want for a weekend away. The hot tub was a perfect way to spend the sunny evenings with a glass of fizz. All in all: just what we wanted! Thank you.
The size of this apartment is amazing! It is very large and spacious with all the amenities one could ask for. The two outside terraces were wonderful. One not covered that was nice to use on the sunny days, and one that was covered that was great for the drizzly days.
The house will well situated for cycling on the canal paths, and for additional sightseeing.
The largest town closest to the house which is actually in Bwlch, is Brecon, and Brecon has nice size markets and great shopping along with a wonderful ice cream shop that is listed as a tourist attraction.
We would definitely stay at this property should we return to this area of Wales.
A short but sunny break
We stayed a couple of nights in this large well-appointed apartment with fabulous views. Whilst not quite warm enough yet to sit outside, I can imagine it would be lovely and perfect for star-gazing too.
It was a handy location for exploring the Monmouth - Brecon canal as well as some lovely local walking and also Pen-y-Fan.
Adrienne was very helpful and friendly with the booking and checking in and also in recommending a great pub, The Three Horseshoes, nearby.
We really enjoyed our brief visit.
Excellent value .
Very spacious and comfortable apartment inside and out in an excellent location for walking in the Brecon Beacons or visiting anywhere in the area thanks to it being almost on the A40 . Some good pubs in the area and an excellent farm shop just up the road as well as supermarkets in Abergaveney and Brecon . Owner was very helpful right from booking . Having stayed in the area many times the apartment gave fantastic value compared to B&B's and we will most certainly stay again . The addition of the pool to the fantastic views will improve this even further .
Fantastic apartment in a beautiful area
We had a great week here with our two year old son: the area is beautiful, the apartment lovely and the owners very helpful and friendly. The apartment is very spacious and clean with really comfortable beds and plenty of bedding, it was nicely decorated with extras like a washing machine and drier which were useful, and had milk, tea and biscuits waiting for our arrival which were much appreciated! Also the owners were very kind and were giving us a lot of tips of things to do, and were always available if needed. The views from the house are amazing, situated on the side of a fairly steep hill overlooking the valley and hills on the far side. There's also a hot tub outside overlooking the views. It was fantastic to sit outside to eat dinner and watch the sun go down. The bedroom is very big with the beds all in the same room, so it would probably be best for a family with younger children or a group of friends and was perfect for us. The local pub was great, just a few minutes' walk away and the staff really friendly and welcoming and the beer delicious. There are plenty of walks from the house and the canal, Taff Trail and waterfalls are all only a few minutes' drive away. Just one word of warning – being on the side a steep hill there is a fair drop from the front of the garden/patio area so you'll have to make sure any young kids don't go wandering that way; we were always outside with our boy so he was fine. We'll hopefully be back again before too long!
