It’s time you brought some dignity back to the family vacay. Instead of shelling out thousands on Mickey Mouse everything, unwind in a castle. Yes, a real-life castle. And did we mention it’s cheaper? 

The 17th-century French Château de Sorel is just 47 miles outside of Paris (hello, Champs-Élysées and macarons). After you shop ’til you drop in the city, head back and settle into the country way of life. Fish private streams and explore nearby villages by bike. Your castle getaway even comes complete with moats and well-manicured gardens.

And the best part? The entire property sleeps 15 for $600 a night (a.k.a. everyone chips in $40). Cue the champagne.

For a quick rundown on how to incorporate this headline-making hue in your own home, check out our guide below.
