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.

Piru, California

No need to hop across the pond to experience the good life. Simply head to this Victorian estate located about 30 miles north of Los Angeles. The castle sleeps up to 20 guests and is available for weddings and reunions (or you know, just lounging because busy parents deserve a break once in awhile).



Which castle is your favorite? Sound off below!
