Saying, "yes" to your fiancé/fiancée was just the first step in your happily ever after. Next comes the wedding planning, choosing the most stunning dress, and, of course, having an epic bachelorette party. While some brides might opt for a relaxing spa day or one night of fun, you'd like to channel your fairy tale fantasies and travel someplace magical. That's why it makes perfect sense to stay in one of the many castles on Airbnb for your bachelorette party.
Why would you stay in a regular suite when you could be living like a princess in a medieval tower? Airbnb has many unique stays out there to choose from, so of course they have a variety of castles.

Then, you might spend the rest of the day relaxing by the fire with a glass of wine and having a regal photo shoot in the garden. It sounds almost too dreamy to be real — but it is.
Plus, most of these 10 fairy tale destinations are overseas, so you can finally dust off your passport and see someplace new with your favorite travel crew. All that's left now is to choose which castle is calling your name.
