4 European Medieval Castles you can vacation in (Bed & Breakfast style)

The travel industry has changed dramatically over the past ten years. And so has the "castle" industry. Castles used to be stuck in this kind of limbo between museum and tour spot. They were relics from the past where you could walk through and learn about their history.

This has changed dramatically with the phenomenal success of the Bed & Breakfast Industry. Now there are many wonderful castles that have made the transition to B &B and you can spend the night or several nights sleeping in the same rooms as the royalty of old did!

Here are 4 Premiere European Castles with Bed & Breakfast accommodations. I say if you are going to travel to Europe why stay in a regular hotel when you can stay in a real castle!


The Castello Ripa d"Orcia (Siena) - Situated in the center of Orcia valley it is not far from Tuscany. This castle was built in the early middle ages and is absolutely gorgeous. Learn more about this castle on it's official website. Lots of pictures and clearly posted rates for the Bed & breakfast accommodations. More information about this medieval castle
