As you’re planning your next trip, your friends will probably show you pictures of perfectly fine holiday houses and lovely hotels. Those are nice, and make for completely acceptable accommodation. But you know what’s better than a regular old hotel? Castle hotel in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Always.
Did you know that castles stairs turn clockwise? (The better to swordfight the enemy.) Or that ale was stored in a room called the buttery? If you’re a history buff looking for Nouvelle-Aquitaine castle accommodation, you probably did know those things. You’ll love all the period details, like archer ports and original enceintes—if you’re not a history lover, you might need to look that one up. Climb the battlements and re-enact your favourite movie scenes—but make sure you ask permission first. You’re not actually Hugh Jackman, you know.
Planning a romantic getaway? Castles in Nouvelle-Aquitaine just might sweep you both off your feet, with luxury touches like lavish upholstery and bath amenities. And while Queen Elizabeth probably had the latest and greatest remedies of her day, that was forever ago. These days, when you stay in a castle with a spa, your royal treatment will be much more modern.
So next time your friends bust out photos of their latest holiday, you’ll be able to one-up them all, because you stayed in a castle. That’s pretty cool, if we do say so ourselves. Even cooler?
