There's nothing more unique than your very own stay in a castle. Our collection of awe-inspiring castles and chateaux are all handpicked by our very own destination experts to ensure every little detail is perfect for you.

Staying in a castle or chateaux takes your wining and dining to the next level too, with options like fully-catered stays, evening banquets in palace halls, and champagne tastings in underground wine cellars. 

Live like a royal, eat like a king, roam through the grand halls, soak up the history from centuries ago, study the detailed architecture, and simply immerse yourself in a fairytale escape. The hard part will be staying anywhere else other than a castle for all your other holidays!
