Wilton Castle

Wilton Castle in Enniscorthy, Ireland, is countryside luxury at its finest. Located on the banks of the Boro River, the 19th century castle is meticulously decorated and offers up to 14 guests elegant accommodations starting at $1,189 per night. Those who have stayed recommend exploring the grounds and taking the "Dark Path" off the main road to experience the beautiful Irish landscape.

Capperina Tower

“An ancient tower, built entirely of stone overlooking the sea of the Amalfi Coast.” If the opening line of this listing doesn’t entice you to book a trip to Italy, then I’m not sure what will. For $452 per night and up, a total of four guests can enjoy private beach and pool access. The property is surrounded by nature and is ideal for those looking for the ultimate relaxing vacation.

Chateau Mercier

Built between 1906 and 1908, Chateau Mercier is a stunning rental located in Sierre, Switzerland. This 23-room property features stunning views of the mountains and was recently updated to include modern amenities while maintaining its original charm. This castle starts at $4,307 per night but with room to accommodate 16 or more guests, this could be the perfect option for those planning a large celebration in the Swiss countryside.

Balvaird Wing at Scone Palace

For those looking for some historical significance to go along with their castle rental, look no further than Balvaird Wing in Perth, Scotland. It was the crowning place of the Kings of Scots and considered by many to be one of the country’s most important stately homes. From $673 per night, up to six guests can view the rare artifacts and antiques indoors, or head outside to gaze upon the gorgeous Scottish landscape.

Storybook Castle

Get the castle-feel without ever having to leave the United States. Situated on 7 acres in Ellington, Connecticut, this property is available from $175 per night and can accommodate 6 guests. The three bedroom New England castle was renovated in 2000 to include modern amenities but the historical charm remains.

Chateau de Farcheville

If you’re looking for the ultimate French castle, look no further than Chateau de Farcheville. The property, which starts at $22,593 per night, boasts 22 bedrooms, 34 bathrooms, an underground wine cellar, hidden passages and so much more of what you would expect from a 14th-century castle near Paris.

Craighross Castle

Sitting on a secluded beach in South Africa (20 minutes from Knysna), Craighross Castle is the perfect place to listen to the waves of the ocean during the day and stargaze at night. The six-bedroom/six-bath privately-owned property is part of the famous Noetzie Castles where Nelson Mandela and his family were known to vacation. Starting at $462 per night, this African oasis is perfect for large families or a romantic getaway for two.

Ter Leyen Castle

Located near the quaint village of Boekhoute, Belgium, Ter Leyen is a 15th-century castle fit for a king — or those who want to pretend to be one while on vacation. The postcard-worthy property starts at $1,035 per night and has enough room for up to 32 guests, making it the perfect Belgian party castle.
