France is absolutely chock-full of châteaux – around 45,000 of them, ranging from turreted castles and medieval retreats to manors overseeing winegrowing estates. These grand and picturesque abodes were often designed as much to be shows of wealth as spacious, comfortable places to live. And while they were once reserved for the French aristocracy, nowadays many of them are available to rent out, in their entirety, for a night or three.

And who can resist such luxury? Some even have moats. Moats! Here are seven of the grandest châteaux that you can book on Airbnb right now, for a stay that’ll make you feel like Marie Antoinette (before all the unpleasantness).

This one’s a little more rough ’n’ rustic than the glammed-up likes of some of the others here, but that’s to be expected. It is, after all, a real-deal Renaissance castle.
