Season six of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” is about to come to its brutal, bloody end.
If you’re one of the show’s many fans, you now find yourself at a crossroads. The finale was rousing and satisfying, but now that it’s over, you don’t know what to do with yourself between now and season seven, which doesn’t start until next year.
Well, don’t despair. The good people at the vacation rental search engine HomeToGo have taken it upon themselves to address the void that’s now in your life, by compiling a list of vacation rentals, all in the places where the show is filmed, or inspired by it.
Strict, super, über fans, be advised – if you’re looking to stay somewhere that’s a carbon copy of one of the locations, you won’t find it here. None of these rentals are intended to duplicate any of the sets. What you will find, however, are settings that recall the show without being exact replicas. So if you love “Game of Thrones,” and your spouse doesn’t, these locations will still work for both of you.
We’ve included nightly rates, links to the properties and information about both the rentals and the fictional counterparts that inspired them. So if you ever wanted to rent a vacation property inspired by Khal Drogo ripping the tongue out of one of his bloodriders for talking smack about his wife, now’s your chance.
