Have you always dreamed of living in a castle in the Italian countryside? A castle in the Loire Valley? A mansion in Germany? This might be your chance – we’ve rounded up nine of the best Airbnb castles so you can plan the ultimate fairytale escape.
Of course, some of us just prefer to find a place to take off our shoes at the end of the day. We don’t need a ton of fancy amenities or even a huge room to lay down on as we set out to explore our destinations. However, there are also those of us who revel in a luxury hotel stay with a huge king-size bed, deep soaking tub, or tons of hotel perks.
You’ll be happy to know that there are tons of real beautiful castles on Airbnb waiting for you to rent, often for a price comparable to or less than a hotel in expensive cities like Paris, Rome or Berlin. Some of these properties offer a single room in the castle while others offer the entire fortress all to you.
So if you’ve always wanted to play your King Arthur or the Lord of the Rings fantasies, there is no better place to do it. Plus, these properties can be found in gorgeous tourist areas with tons of gorgeous views, quaint villages, and fun activities, so you’ll never feel like a prince or princess in a tower.
These nine properties, from Tuscany to Bavaria, take affordable luxury to a whole new level. Not only are they big enough for the whole family, some of the extravagant accommodations will only cost you and your fellow travelers the price of an average hotel room.
