Here at Haute Residence, we’re all about feeling like a King or Queen. What better way to do so than to spend your next vacation living in a bona fide castle from Airbnb? From Scotland to the South of France, the region is scattered with ancient castles harkening back to yesteryear, each with its own story of the lords and ladies that used to inhabit them. Today, they are available for parties big and small to rent on the site for what are reasonably incredible fees give that it’s a…well…castle.
Whether you’re planning a wedding abroad and want to combine hotel costs for family with the price of renting a venue, are planning the next boutique music festival, or just want to have a vacation for the whole family that doesn’t involve shaking hands with a man in a mascot costume, these castles will have anyone feeling like royalty.
Held originally by the rector of Kilmartin Glen and the Bishop of The Isles, this castle, built in 1550, is a cozy retreat for anyone fond of nature and the beautiful scenery of the Scottish countryside.
This castle is built on a 2,000-acre property covering glens, forests, gardens, lochs, and waterfalls. The nine beds, 5.5 bath estate also features an expansive library and grand dining room. Contrary to what you might think was intended of a space built to explore nature in, it also has internet access.
Located 15 minutes outside St Andrews University, this castle sleeps 13 and is great for everything from the company golf outing at the historic course in St Andrews to a family holiday. The castle is also an hour drive away from Edinburgh, the heart of Scottish culture.
A beautiful old mansion in Devon, featuring 5 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and broad views reaching out to the ocean, this three story mansion is beautiful in its traditional English design and has several large gardens enclosed in the property to wander through.
Located in central France, and a short drive from Paris, this 10 bedroom, 8 bathroom estate is built across multiple buildings in the commune. The property also features multiple gardens, ponds, pools, and greenery to roam during your stay. Forget having to deal with the neighbors in the room next door when next door are birds chirping round the clock.
