Castle hotels are my very favorite place to stay on vacation. While you can find newer copies of the “Old World” around the world, it only makes sense that most of the truly authentic ones are in Europe. As I discovered as an exchange student abroad, castles were originally primarily fortresses. As such, they were set on high hills to protect the villages below. As a result, many were made of dark, heavy stone. Luckily, most have been updated to provide all the modern conveniences expected by today’s tourists.
On the other hand, palaces were very elegant and built as royal residences or those of the top officials or aristocracy. As a result, you can expect high ceilings, sumptuous rooms and ornate features inside and out. Most still have formal gardens surrounding them. Select palaces are now also open to the public as national monuments or even high-end lodgings.
Both castle and palace hotels tend to be in the countryside. The good news is that tends to decrease the prices, especially off-season. While swimming pools, inside or outside are rare, most have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV’s and private baths. In any case, be sure to ask!
It is the perfect singles luxury vacation in a 4-star elegant Bordeaux castle Bed and Breakfast. Nearby access ranges from wine tasting, top cuisine to quaint villages.
