Whether youre still searching for your Prince Charming (because you lost yours trulys number), looking for something different, or a just a really big fan of Beauty and the Beast, the vacation rental service, HomeAway, has numerous Beauty and the Beast-style fairy tale rental castles from California and New Hampshire to Austria and France available now. Out of over 900 properties, the following castles were selected based on a list of Beauty and the Beast-like qualities:

  • The castle had to have an interesting location.
  • The castle had to have a fairy tale appearance–be it luxurious or rustic.

Here then, are the top five choices:
