For a change of place – and moving out of the British isles for a while – we’ll look at some of the castles on sale in Spain, the ones which you might consider buying, if you ever decide to. We can already believe that castles fulfill a certain purpose outside of the initially perceived one of being a fort to protect everyone from invaders. But now, there are a number of castles up for grabs that can serve as writing retreats, and Spain happens to be one of the best places to find ones that you can buy, or that you can dream of buying. Let’s take a look at five:
Price: 1,200,000 EUR
This castle is located on top of a hill, attached to its tower and village church. One of the notable things about this castle is the place in which it is found – a beautiful, breathtaking countryside, a pristine country setting that proves fairytale-like.
Price: 1,300,000 EUR
A pretty large property, this medieval castle is part of a 62-acre property. It’s found near the village of Besalu. Nearby, there’s a beach. Fun fact: it’s found in the area where artist Salvador Dali was born.
Price: 2,500,000 EUR
This one is pretty nice. A medieval castle found 30km away from Barcelona, the property affords one a view of the vegetation in the county of Valles Oriental.
Price: 4,000,000 EUR
This property sports a pretty hefty price tag compared to what we’ve had in the list so far, but it’s not without reason: this one is an actual castle that one of the kings of Spain – King Alfonso XIII – had used, and the pieces of furniture he had in his bedroom are still there and well-preserved. The castle itself dates back to the 7th century, and apart from that, it offers wonderful, beautiful views.
Something a little different: we’ve looked at whole castles, or castles that only need their interiors renovated. This property, however, is unique in that it is in the process of being restored. The property is found in Catalunya, and an hour away from Barcelona.
