Dreams of castles can become a reality

Castle-style house in Xátiva

To own a castle is not a fantasy of our imagination. Beautiful castles are dotted all around the world, examples of this are, the medieval ruins of Dunottar Castle located on the north-east coast of Scotland and the picturesque and charming Eilean Donan Castle situated on a tidal island in Scotland. In Bavaria, raised 800m and surrounded by a hilly landscape, stands the magical Neuschwanstein castle of an enormous size resembling something out of a Disney book. Another example is the Bran castle in Romania. Other castles that don’t fall under the medieval category include the Himeji Castle in Japan boasting fine Japanese architectural design. Spain also boasts impressive castles such as the World Heritage Site, Álcazar Castle, and the symbolic Coca Castle located in Segovia, as well as the majestic Olite Castle in Navarra. The mythological Pena Palace in Portugal is another beautiful example.

Almost certainly you have either visited or dreamt about visiting one of these stunning fortresses, but have you ever thought about owning one of them?
