We’ve been looking at lists a lot – lists of castle hotels in different countries, lists of castles for sale, lists of places where we can hold our dream writing retreats, to name a few. But today, we’re going to do something different, and look at a specific location in detail: a particular chateau in Wales.
Here is Chateau Rhianfa.
The castle hotel’s front page calls it a “magnificent French gothic-styled château hotel on the isle of Anglesey, North Wales,” giving a view of the Menai Strait and the peaks of Snowdonia.
Every last detail has been thought about at Château Rhianfa. From the music and drawing rooms to the turret showers and summer and winter balconies, it’s easy to be impressed with this beautiful château. This hotel and exclusive-use venue, set in one of the most beautiful parts of Wales, is ideal for short stays, family vacations, wedding receptions, celebrations, meetings and corporate events – Château Rhianfa is a truly sumptuous property.

And “sumptuous” is just about right, as you will see from the following photos:
It’s not as old as those castle hotels that date back to the 15th or 16th century, or some similar time period, and were only restored. The chateau’s construction began during the 19th century – not so far from our century, all things considered. Here’s a pretty detailed account of the chateau’s history.
One of the great things about this place is that it boasts both wonderful suites and self-catering lodges.
