If you binge-watched the latest season of the historical series The Crown, you will certainly have noticed « The Yellow Castle » in all its splendour in the Balearics. This fairytale royal castle is now available to rent on Airbnb. For a life worthy of Buckingham with a Mediterranean twist.
If spending a night in princess (or prince) mode is on your bucket list, Airbnb has the solution for you. You can become Fiona by spending a night in Shrek’s swamp, transform yourself into the Mouse King from The Nutcracker at the Opéra Garnier in Paris…or rent the famous Yellow Castle, the royal residence where Lady Di left her mark, in the Balearics.
In the latest episode of season 6 of The Crown, which has just arrived on Netflix, we get a glimpse of this magnificent Yellow Castle, with its thousands of balconies and breathtaking sea views. It’s a place steeped in symbolism, since Princess Diana stayed here several times as a child. The series even plunges us into the legendary meeting between Lady Di and Dodi Al-Fayed, her last love.
