Rapunzel’s Castle Isn’t Only in a Fairytale

It would be magical to spend the night here (sans evil witch, of course).

Get ready to smile: Everything your inner child thought was just a fairytale can actually be found in this hotel.

The Castle in Clarens (which you’ll find nestled into the Red and Maluti mountains of South Africa) is its official name, but it’s more commonly referred to as Rapunzel’s Tower, which served as its inspiration. And we have to say, it kind of puts the fairytale to shame.

Its decor aims to mimic a regal fantasyland, and has many accents handpicked from around the world by the owners — like tapestries from Dubai and tile from Europe. Other features — the elevated master bedroom and a garden of rampions (otherwise known as Campanula rapunculus) — also offer nods to the storybook tale.

Thanks to a majestic fireplace, mountain views, and nearby art galleries, it really is a place you can let down your hair — but, yes, you can take the stairs to leave the building.

Take a look around:
