Bungalow to rent in Brecon Beacons, Crickhowell Self Catering Cottage – Crickhowell Accommodation – Black Mountains, Powys South Wales.
Conveniently situated in the centre of Crickhowell just 2 minutes walk from the main High Street, Savona is an attractive detached bungalow in a large secluded garden offering comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people. Crickhowell offers an excellent range of shops selling local produce, outdoor clothing, gifts and household goods. There are several pubs and restaurants in the town as well as take-aways. The bungalow is called Savona after a small town in Italy.
This is because my grandfather’s troop ship was torpedoed in the first world war and when he was rescued he landed at Savona and the people were very kind to him and his fellow soldiers.
When he returned to Newport he named the family home after the town of Savona. Each time they moved they took the name with them and my parents carried on with the tradition when they bought their home in Crickhowell.
