A continent of disparate countries creating a hotbed of culture and history, Europe is seen by many as the center of the world. It’s no coincidence that it almost always appears in the middle of world maps.
When did it all start? In the medieval times of Castles and royalty? Maybe it was the age of exploration. It doesn’t really much matter because Europe is eclectic in nature, as most things are, but the special thing about Europe is that it bears so much of its past in its everyday life.
All these parts of history coming together to form the continent we know today. In everything from bloody histories to study abroad stories, the continent’s eclectic nature is clear to see on almost any scale. We even get to see that diversity in our list!
Everything from contemporary estates to historic villas, here are the ten most luxurious properties we have for sale throughout Europe!
Nestled in the forest of Kapellen, this villa has exceptional views of the Royal Antwerp Golf Course. Incredibly modern, still in its infancy at five years old, this clean-cut behemoth sits on an expansive 100,233 square foot lot. The living area coming in at an astounding 12,163 square feet of living space still leaves a plethora of room, even when accounting for the in-ground pool. Thanks to the architect, who was no stranger to the effects of natural light in interior spaces, we have a beautiful home to start our list.
An impressive driveway brings us through the door to the grand hall of this beach style villa. The coastal vibes are further enhanced by the ocean view, bright interior colors, and the villa’s short distance from both the beach and the Ria Formosa natural park. Pool privacy is preserved by meticulously maintained and well-laid gardens. With a lot size of 41,440 square feet, and a living space of just over 5,000, the additional plot of land has full building rights and limitless potential. Five en-suite bedrooms, seven baths, this 2002 home is the perfect perch for the successful thalassophile.
During the reign of King Matthias, the area where this villa lies was managed by the crown. These old hunting grounds are one of the most sought after residential areas in Budapest.
An environmentally friendly, modern minimalist mansion. It’s fitted with vanguard tech, ranging from security, to earthquake protection, to controlling the whole compound from your smart device. Emphasis on modern, this 2015 home is state-of-the-art.
With a lot size of about 35,000, and a living space of just over 23,000, to call it spacious is an insult. Some of that space is dedicated to the spa in the basement, fit with saunas, a steam room, salt caves, solariums, and even a tepidarium.
This property is one you have to see for yourself, though, you’ll only be amazed. To understand a villa like this, you’ll have to experience it for yourself.
Wrought iron and shrubbery envelop this palatial German villa. Built in 2006, 20,020 square feet of living space, upon first glance this building is undeniably impressive. More full baths than there are bedrooms, and as many indoor pools as there are kitchens, the interior is a must-see as well. Aesthetically reminiscent of Olympian gods, modernized and exemplified, especially in the pool room, this villa is hard to forget.
Switzerland! Home to some of the world’s best skiing, the world’s best chocolate, and the best option we had for number six on this list. 5,400 square feet of living space, sitting atop 24,000 square feet of land, this home was only missing one thing.

Once you reach out to us here at Castles, we’ll be happy to help make your transition seamless and painless.
There may not be a human alive that could argue the fact that France, home to our number five pick, is one of the most breath-taking, romantic locales on the planet. This sprawling estate, aptly named not after the biblical king, but the nine-liter large format wine bottle, is a force to be reckoned with. Dormant amongst the hills of Ramatuelle, Provencal-style and Saint-Tropez flair synthesize into this beauty.
Easy access to le Cote d’Azur, and privacy from the tourists. While it exudes a beach club feeling, upon entering it’s clear that the villa is well-suited for family living as well. A two-hour drive from the nearest airport, fifteen minutes from Saint-Tropez as we know it, and five minutes from Club 55, this property is malleable. It is exactly what you need it to be.
Two wings coming together with two styles to form this Italian villa tucked amongst the trees overlooking Lake Como. Views of the Alps, including Mont Blanc, are enough to give people their first understanding of what everyone in the know means by “the great outdoors.” The south wing was built neo-Louis XV style, while the north wing boasts a modern rationalist style. Various artists, architects, and designers have their marks all over this estate; art blessing the walls and ceilings of numerous rooms.
In addition to these two wings, there’s a separate villa meant for the staff needed to maintain 12,702 square feet of living space sitting on top of 269,107 square feet of land. Yes, that was typed correctly. 269,000 square feet of land. With various parts of this property resembling the more visually stunning stills from the internationally multi-award winning film “Call Me by Your Name,” this is one you’ll want to see.
If Avicii were alive today, he would agree, this equestrian territory is cool. We’re positive he would have stronger words, but we’re speechless. If you’re into numbers, you’ll love to hear that this compound boasts almost 22,000 square feet of living space. Whether you’re into numbers or not, you’ll be astonished to hear we called it a “territory” because it exists on 861,094 square feet of land. Imagine the potential for events! One main house, two side houses for the staff, enough room to raise around one hundred horses, a path with over one hundred olive trees, three huge terraces, plenty of wrought iron and natural stone walls, an eight car garage, and a bathing lake for the horses. In, of all places, Ibiza. You can understand our shock.
30,000,000 square feet. Thirty million square feet.
An estate in a national park, overlooking the Warta River where we find a private marina. Europe’s most well-equipped polo club, and an indoor practice facility, exist on the grounds. Tournaments are held either in the lit arena, or the other two fields. The villa also contains:

Massachusetts has been known over the years as an expensive place to live, mainly because of the real estate selling prices. Boston, the capital and largest city has the highest median price per square foot among the largest 100 cities in the US. However, you can find modern housing for reasonable prices all over the Bay State. Single-family homes and apartment buildings in the market happen to be built several years ago and had been remodeled recently with the latest appliances and utilities.

Built in 2019, this property is hosted by nearly a quarter of an acre of land. A level lot and a backyard with so much room for activities, invite everyone you know to your move-in BBQ and break out the ladder toss. Found in a renowned school district, this twelve-room home couldn’t be more perfect for a family. With twelve rooms, a fully finished lower level, and loads of natural light, this home is the perfect balance between luxury and minimalism.
You’ll find this contemporary colonial fits 5,250 square feet on almost half an acre of land, and still we see a driveway and sprawling backyard that could team up for much better BBQs. Where to start? Marble bathrooms with a shower spacious enough for water polo, or maybe the multiple fireplaces. If you’re tasked with picking your favorite part of this property, best of luck to you.
And I quote, “Sun-splashed, fireplaced living room with soaring ceilings and french doors opening to stone patio. Formal dining room with adjoining built in bar, spacious sun room overlooking stunning gardens, stone walls and pool.” Wait until you see the landscaping that the birds-eye-view drone shot couldn’t even capture all of, and maybe check out the interior afterwards. The stone bridge over the pond leads me to believe someone must have an affinity towards English gardens. Also towards spiral staircases, which we support wholeheartedly.
This home, get this, was once part of the N.C. Wyeth family compound! To say it’s “steeped in history” is one thing, but to see and feel it for yourself is another. Immense wealth and acute attention to the importance of beauty in our homes. Both are visible in the character of the family that brought this beast to life. “Beast” is the most accurate word, as it’s almost intimidating that such a feat was managed into becoming what we see today. Leaded glass windows. English oak wood reclaimed from a Beacon Hill estate. If your family hasn’t been generationally wealthy for the last couple centuries, this home will fool the best of them. If it has, you’ll feel right at home.
If you’re going to click any photo on this list, make it this one. The Mary Poppins bag on our list, you might get lost in this almost 7,300 square foot estate. You can see the potential of this new renovation in the virtual tour, which is a journey when you have over an acre of land at your disposal. Twelve rooms, chef’s kitchen, a basement with nine-foot-higg ceilings, and a library. The photos, the tour… this property speaks for itself.
Our bonus home is currently under construction. Custom designed by Michael McKay, sitting on 1.8 acres, you’re looking at over 8,000 square feet of living space. Fifteen rooms sitting heavily at the end of a private way cul-de-sac, this monolith is a testament to what success brings– like an in-home theatre, or maybe a library. No need to choose, this house has both, as well as an au pair suite, formal living and dining rooms, and almost as many garage stalls as there are bathrooms, and there are a lot of bathrooms. A stunning master suite, one of many bedrooms decorates the interior, and, not last or least, a bonus room above the garage waiting for further finishing instructions from whoever’s finds themselves lucky enough to sign for this titan.
Clocking in with a Price Tag of $3,595,000, it would have topped our list if it were move in ready. Construction is expected to finish this year, 2020, and in addition to customizing the bonus room, buyers even still have time to pick colors, finishes, and amenities.
All of these manors are currently for sale! If you’re interested in these, or any other properties, reach out to us here at Castles Unlimited. We’re eager to help and look forward to hearing from you!
