Want to feel like you're in King's Landing?
Or live in Winterfell as if it were real?
The good news is that you just might be able to!
Vacation rental leader, HomeAway, has just released a list of 7 ‘real life’ properties that they promise will give Game of Thrones fans that mystical, medieval vibe they can only dream of.
1. The La Flocellière Castle in France that looks like Winterfell
This castle in France looks just like Winterfell! In here, you can tread through centuries-old stones and candlelit pathways that seem like they could easily have housed the noble Starks.
The castle houses up to 14 guests.
2. The Victorian Mansion House in Scotland that might remind you of Riverrun
This glorious Riverrun lookalike is a Victorian mansion located in the United Kingdom which houses 14 bedrooms and is fully-equipped with modern amenities and is surrounded by woodland.
It’s perfect for hosting special occasions… even weddings.
3. The Historic Tower House in Ireland that is almost a Tower Of Joy replica
Closely resembling the Tower of Joy, where a newborn Jon Snow was entrusted to Ned Stark by a dying Lyanna Stark, is this historic tower house located in Roaring Water Bay, Ireland.
The medieval tower is over 500 years old and was last restored in 2000, though the designer deliberately kept medieval elements and original building materials as a nod to its heritage.
4. The Tawstock Castle in England that will give you that Storm's End vibe
This castle in England can be compared to Storm's End.
Said to be protected by spells woven into its walls, Storm’s End is one of the mightiest fortresses in all of Westeros. Since the death of Stannis Baratheon, also known as the Lord of Storm’s End, it is uncertain who owns the castle.
Perhaps you could stake your claim by staying a night at this property, located in Devonshire, England.
5. Dun's Castle in Scotland that will make you feel like you're in House Tarly
Dun’s Castle, located near Edinburgh in Scotland, bears striking resemblance to House Tarly of Horn Hill, one of the most powerful vassal houses in Westeros.
Horn Hill may have only accommodated the Tarly family of five, but this HomeAway listing can host up to 23 guests in its 12 bedrooms.
6. The Tower Capperina in Italy that you could mistake for King's Landing
Tower Capperina may remind you of King's Landing. And a look at the pristine seawater may bring to mind the tragic battle at Blackwater Bay, the largest war amongst the Five Kings to date.
Like the strong walls of Kings Landing which saved the Lannisters, this HomeAway property will ensure a safe and memorable getaway for a family of four.
7. The Geodesic Dome in Virginia that looks like the temple in King Renly's Camp
The temple in King Renly’s Camp may be all but a faint memory to Game of Thrones fans, as it was only featured in the background in one of the scenes. However, this amazing temple is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed sights, with two nearby beaches set up as filming locations for Dragonstone and the Dorne Coast.
While staying at the temple is not an option, HomeAway has the perfect alternative by providing a property that boasts a similar circular structure. An entire home which sleeps up to 14 people, the Paine Family Geodesic Dome located in West Virginia features massive stone fire places and a cosy atmosphere that will keep you warm as winter finally arrives.
