You Can Rent A Medieval Castle In Spain For You And Your Friends

You Can Rent A Medieval Castle In Spain For You And Your Friends

Forget booking any old basic hotel in Amsterdam or Lisbon for your next girls' getaway - you and your squad are better than that. You and your girls deserve a castle.

Nestled between rivers, valleys and mountains in the centre of Ripollès, a county in the north east of Spain bordering France, stands the ancient castle Llaés - and you can book the entire thing on Airbnb.

You can rent the castle - which honestly looks like its been pulled from the set of Game of Thrones - for a maximum of 16 guests, and it's already getting the juicy flowing for planning our next long weekend away.

Imagine this: you and your crew having full roam of an incredible medieval castle, hosting wine-fuelled feasts in the dining area, and watching incredible sunsets over the valleys from your tower like the queens you are.

The eight bedroom, four bathroom castle is described as "a unique place of exceptional beauty, where there is absolute tranquility amidst lush nature."

When you're not just perusing the world from your castle on the hill, you can get amongst the local town, visiting monasteries, going on hikes and sampling the local Spanish food.

The best part about this listing is that it's totally affordable; definitely not what you'd imagine 'castle prices' to look like.

Price may vary depending on dates, but hypothetically speaking, a long weekend in March (three nights from Friday to Monday) costs just £1335. If you have the maximum of 15 friends coming with you, that's around £27 per person per night.

Plus, if you decide to stay a week, there's a 25 per cent discount, brining the total down to just £19 per person per night - to stay in a CASTLE. Peanuts!

To get there, just fly to Barcelona (flights range from £40 to £150 depending on time of year) and then make the two hour drive to Ripollès. Easy peasy.

"Fantastic place. You won't believe the location and it's worth the journey," wrote one reviewer on the site.

"There aren't enough words to describe the absolute beauty of this castle. The views from the bedrooms are out of this world!" gushed another.

"Their château is unique. What a pleasure to walk around a thousand years old building full of history, beautifully located on top of a hill with a breathtaking view," agreed a third.

Brb, off to live in a castle.
