This ground floor apartment offers everything you’ll need for the perfect family holiday. Enjoy an early morning stroll to the ruins of the historic Llansteffan Castle, standing high above the village and steeped in history. This spot offers sublime picture perfect views across the village and Carmarthen Bay.
