I’m the king of the castle, you’re a dirty rascal! Sound familiar? You probably sang it to your foes as a child, When you grow up, though, you realize you really ARE the king or queen of your castle…kind of. In the sense that when the toilet is broken you get to choose to call the plumber or fix it yourself, and you get to boss your cat around (when it wants to listen), and you can eat pizza in bed if you want to. Royalty!
But if you’re lucky enough to be richer than I could ever imagine a single human being, you can buy yourself a true castle! That’s right, some of Europe’s most decadent residences are nothing less than castles once inhabited by royalty and the landowning gentry. But there is a downside; it’s a lot of rooms to clean. Except you’re rich, so I guess you have maids to do that. Well, then, there’s no downside.
Here are 6 European castles that are currently on the market, you know, in case you’re a prince looking for a summer home:
1.) Villa, Stresa, Italy.
2.) The Stone Tower, Warwickshire, England.
3.) Impruneta Castle, Florence, Italy.
4.) Can Amat, Cabrils, Spain.
5.) Craigcrook Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland.
6.) Sham Castle, Shrewsbury, England.
