Solo Travel Deals-Castle Hotels: Castle hotels are real steals. During my childhood days, like many young girls, I had dreams of castles with tall towers. Fast forward to the 21st-century, I discovered a really practical reason to be excited about castles. Set throughout the European countryside, most have been converted into modern residences or four and five-star hotels. Even the most ancient have been updated now to combine Old World charm with present day conveniences.
The good news is that many are set in the countryside. That gives a relaxing site for hiking, biking or in some cases skiing,. Their locations outside of major cities and national capitals keeps their prices far lower than in a city center.
France, Germany and Italy have some of the largest numbers and best known “chateaux hotels”. However, you will also find many others in:
- UK/Scotland and
- Czech Republic (My favorite is the 5-star luxury spa at the Chateau Heralec in the Czech countryside. To learn more, see Czech Castle and Spa plus Czech Luxury Castle Hotel)
Here are more we selected for you to check out by country. We chose them based on the value and price.

This is another one of my personal favorites, an easy train ride from Lisbon. It is just outside the fabled port city of Porto with cabs nearby to get around. It has real charm and also top cuisine. Warning: It is pricier than many of those in Germany and Italy.

Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City – Enter your dates into our booking engine for price and availability. Yet again, another of my very favorites. After seven to eight trips there, it feels almost like home! It is high though in-season or for holidays. You will save airfare by having a feel of France in North America if you reside on this side of the Atlantic. Jan. and Feb. are best prices. I have combined a stay there with skiing and dog sledding. The hotel shuttle can take you there so it is easy to have a great trip.
