Sick of that same old family trip to Disney World? Going on a fairytale vacation doesn't have to mean going to the Magic Kingdom, or even breaking the bank - just rent a real castle instead. You read that right. Instead of an overpriced theme park or a horrible vacation rental, escape to one of these cheap castle rentals in Europe.
Lavish vacation rentals in Europe offer old-world luxury at incredibly modern prices. Plenty of beautiful castles stand ready to receive guests, whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a big group trip with a dozen or so of your closest friends. These European castles for rent will make you feel just like Cinderella - even if you prefer a pair of flip flops by the pool to glass slippers in a ballroom.
You can stay in these castles for under $150 per person per night. All the prices listed are estimates based on exchange rate and the maximum number of guests, but all are incredibly reasonable - so grab your friends and book that dream vacation. You deserve it.
