CUL­TURE TRIP

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape -

Wel­come to Wales’ take on the Ital­ian Riviera: the tech­ni­colour vil­lage of Port­meirion ( left) was dreamt up by wealthy trav­eller Sir Clough Wil­liams as a reimag­i­na­tion of Portofino in the 1920s, and to­day plays host to Fes­ti­val No.6, an an­nual mu­sic and cul­ture week­ender. If camp­ing isn’t for you, rent a lo­cal cot­tage or stay at one of the vil­lage’s B&BS af­ter a day of lis­ten­ing to au­thor Will Self give a read­ing on the pi­azza, par­ty­ing to garage mu­sic in the woods and din­ing at a white-table­cloth ban­quet of lo­cally caught fish by the sea’s edge. From £180 for a week­end ticket, 6–9 Septem­ber (fes­ti­val­num­ber6.com).

FES­TI­VAL NO. 6, GWYNEDD
