“There’s a flame of magic inside every stone and every flower, every bird that sings and every frog that croaks. There’s magic in the trees and the hills and the river and the rocks, in the sea and the stars and the wind, a deep, wild magic that’s as old as the world itself.” (Kate Forsyth, The Puzzle Ring)

We feel that magic the most when we visit castles. These old, magnificent and beautiful structures are like ambassador from another time. Their walls, rooms, secret passages, pieces of furniture tell us legends and secret scandals that take us back in time. They have charm that is not comparable to anything else. They have gardens that look like scenes from a fairy tale. We love castles. And we’d love to guide you through their magical halls and gardens.
