What is Portmeirion?
Well, it is a collection of buildings, perhaps, looking very Italian but in the middle of deepest Wales. The buildings were not built for a function but to be part of a village. Visually they are just right.
The village is split into 3 areas at different levels along the slope to the river side.
- Castell Deudraeth – an 11 bedroom hotel with restaurant
- The Central area around the Piazza – this being the centre of the village.
- Hotel Portmeirion at the river side.
I have made earlier comment on Sir Clough William-Ellis whose brainchild was Portmeirion.
A flat area and the energy is held within the area.
· The piazza (square) is for the energy to circulate.
· Water in the 3 ponds hold the movement of the energy.
· Buildings are the edge to prevent the exit of the energy flow.
It is the practise of developments by many property developers to squeeze as much useable floor space, especially on a slope of a hill. They have buildings built on the hill so that the occupants will have the best possible views. Because of this squeezing, the energy is not held. As a result, the execution of the modern development falls downs because the properties do not sell. From my observations, there are many unsold or unfinished developments on the slope of hills because of this.
With the energy circulating at the piazza level, people spend time there, walk, looking examining the building, admiring the views but most importantly, feeling comfortable with the surroundings. Many people just sit on the many chairs and absorbing the atmosphere.
The main entrance for the hotel people and the energy.
The energy coming down the hill is from the North east. This is also the predominant energy for this Time Period (2005 to 2025).
The other energy that the door receives is from the East. This is from the River Dwyryd that is flowing from the East to the West.
Therefore, the building is receiving a combination of energy from the North east and East. This is a very good combination.
From the feng shui point of view,
Piazza level: The retention of energy at the mid-level that creates the wonderful feeling of space and “warmth”.
Hotel: The combination of 2 energies from 2 different compass directions will ensure that the business for the accommodation side of the business will do well.
Note: I did not visit Castell Deudraeth which is at the top level.
Portmeirion is noted for the fine gardens and a range of pottery;
The gardens have a particularly the wide range of unique species of rhododendrons. The range of pottery is based on the designs of the plants and flowers here. It is the unique designs of the pottery that have also spread the word of the beauty of Portmeirion.
Long may it last.
