*chuckle* a Scottish castle is cheaper but then we would have to dine on

A fully staffed French 'prestige' chateaux can run to tens of thousands
a month. $3-5,000.00 U.S. per week.

But unstaffed, less polished or historical or famous or otherwise
expensive chateaux's can be had for a couple of thousand per month U.S.
especially if you don't mind wood stoves and ..... chaise percee's
Some even come 'with garden produce' included in the rental.
