When you travel around the world, sooner or later you will come across some old and impressive castle. A castle is something that we directly connect to historical events, romance and old and remarkable stories. When I see a castle I always start wondering how it would feel to actually live there; this huge structure, many times surrounded by beautiful gardens and high fences, makes me somehow feel as if great things happened there in the past. These days many castles around Europe allow us to feel like a king or a queen for a day, or even more: many castles have been renovated and rearranged, transforming it to a beautiful hotel. The reason it is so special to stay in a castle instead of in regular lodging is because many things in the castle are kept in the old style. This enables us to see what it was like to live in a huge castle, almost like in the old days.
Take a look at the castles below and you might get inspired when picking your hotel for your next holiday:
Location: Wales – Name: Ruthin Castle Hotel
Location: Isles of Scilly – Name: Star Castle Hotel
I bet after seeing all these amazing castle hotels you will think again about where to stay during your next vacation. The nicest thing about staying in a castle: chances are that you will be located in the middle of a stunning natural area. Staying in the middle of the city is also fun, but then you miss out on the option to take a break and just have a walk in the forest or on the seaside, where some of these castles are situated. Moreover, it’s good to change familiar settings and try something completely new every once in a while!
