Game of Thrones Fans: Spend a Week in Westeros

Game of Thrones returns tonight, and with the help of HomeAway, we have a list of castles that resemble the 5 remaining Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms ? all available to rent! If every Sunday night, you find yourself imagining which House in Westeros you?d belong to, you can now experience how the characters ruled by spending your next vacation in GoT-style.
House Stark of Winterfell
Sitting on 12 acres of land, Carr Hall Castle is located in West Yorkshire, England, and would be the perfect residence for the Kings of Winter ? after all, the Starks aren?t afraid of a little cold. With a dining room complete with a fireplace and rooms outfitted with furs on the bed to keep warm, this castle also features a private deer park estate — your dire wolves will love the hunt.

Book your stay!
House Lannister of Casterly Rock
The wealthiest family in the Seven Kingdoms, the Lannisters know how to live like kings — even if their means aren?t always the most honorable. Their fortress is carved out of a great stone hill, and it is tunneled through with halls and chambers and even contains a productive gold-producing mine (which explains their extreme wealth). To duplicate this ancient luxury, stay at Ballyhannon Castle, among the finest Celtic castles Ireland built in the 15th century — and completely updated with modern conveniences.

Book your stay!
House Greyjoy of Pyke
Often remaining distant from the other Great Houses of Westeros, the Greyjoys rely upon their fleet of ships to raid the cities along the western coastline. The Greyjoys sit atop their Castle of Pyke ruling over the Iron Islands, a hard and bleak collection of forbidding islands off the west coast of Westeros. To be a Greyjoy, you must live in an island-castle like the ancient Castle of Aragon, considered the most impressive historical monument of Ischia, Italy. To venture into town, you can use the ancient bridge built in 1438 by Alfonso of Aragon.
Book your stay!
House Martell of Sunspear
To live like a resident of Dorne, you must travel to the south of Westeros where the piercing hot sun shines down on the orange-sand desert. Referred to as El Castillo, this refurbished castle located in the heart of the Uruguayan version of the Côte d?Azur is available to rent for the first time in many years. The castle overlooks a private garden, pristine beach and stunning seascape.

Book your stay!
House Tyrell of Highgarden
To live like the Tyrell family, opulence is key — their wealth is only surpassed by the Lannsters. Located in France, the Château de Challain is all about luxury and romance. With room to sleep up to 35, the Chateau de Challain is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience living like royalty, and it?s also the perfect venue to marry royally! When your sigil is the rose, it?s only appropriate to stay in a castle surrounded by lavish gardens.
