I loved visiting Portmeirion in Wales because it's made from a collection of odd bits and architectural fragments, rescued from places all over Europe. It was the brainchild of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who built it during the period from 1925 to 1975. His daughter Susan is the designer of Portmeirion china.

The Welsh resort of Portmeirion in Northern Wales. The charming village was built in 1925 by a landscaper and architect - it looks like Disneyland, the Italian Riviera, and Munchkinland combined
