Sippy cups and dirty dishes may be your reality now, but it doesn’t have to be. Plan your escape to a real-life castle to experience the royal treatment (at least for a few nights). From Italy to California, flip through the photo gallery to discover the world’s coolest castles that you can rent for as little as $20 per person, per night. Move over Belle, there’s a new queen in town.

Saint-Vincent-sur-Graon, France

Gather up 36 of your family and friends and jet off to this French castle to play Belle. Just don't get lost—the castle features 17 bedrooms, which we think make for a great layout for a massive game of hide-and-seek.
