If you’re looking for an alternative, yet luxurious vacation, you should reconsider a trip to Europe. Not only is it home for beautiful and cultural countries, but it also offers a high number of historical castles that you can rent. Yes, you read that right. Rentable castles.
Become the king of a castle
Even though castles bring your thoughts to fairytales, the dream of being the king of a castle is no longer a fantasy. At websites such as Luxury Retreats and The Castle Rental Network of Europe you can dive into a wide selection of private majestic castles in countries such as Spain, France, and Italy. The properties range from 8 to as high as 33 bedrooms, which allow you to bring friends and family onto your royal experience. The average price for renting a luxury castle in Europe is $3,593 per night.
Luxury and history combined
A popular rentable castle is Villa Gaia in Colle Val D’Elsa, Italy which is an extremely sophisticated resident surrounded by countryside. The villa is dated back to the year 1400 and has for centuries been owned by an Italian aristocratic family.
By renting the castle you will gain access to the 16,000 square feet villa and a 4,800 square feet annex. The property offers a private tennis court, sauna, swimming pool, 3 indoor jacuzzies and there’s also golf and riding facilities nearby if the golf arm calls for a swing.
To complete the royal experience there’s naturally a house manager with 4 staff members 6 days a week, and you can also choose to get a professional chef with waiters to serve you and your guests. Well, a king shouldn’t prepare his own meals, should he?
