Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 09, 2017
With excitement building for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast®” featuring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, HomeAway® is teaming up with Disney to celebrate the film by giving one lucky winner and 20 of his or her chosen guests an unprecedented #HomeAwayCastle stay experience in Scotland this summer.
With its contest that launches in several countries today, the world leader in vacation rentals is offering the chance to make someone’s dream of living a real-life fairy tale come true. The prize package includes a five-night stay in a majestic 14th century castle located in Duns, Scotland and all travel arrangements for the winner and up to 20 of his or her favorite people.
The group will have the entire castle and its 1,200 acres to themselves to enjoy as they wish and can partake in a variety of activities ranging from archery to falconry. Or, they may prefer to dance, sing, read books, or perhaps even talk to the furniture and hope it will talk back, just like in the much-anticipated film.
“Our mission at HomeAway is to help families and groups make unforgettable vacation memories and to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Steve Stamstad, HomeAway’s global brand vice president. “Whether staying in one of our hundreds of castles spread across the world, or even in a simple beach bungalow, we provide more than two million unique places to stay and help travelers get HomeAway from it all.”
Travelers from the US as well as France, Germany and the UK can enter the #HomeAwayCastle prize drawing by visiting HomeAway.com/Disney until the competition closes on March 31, 2017.
HomeAway is also giving away a trip for four to the world premiere of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” in Hollywood on March 2, 2017, including roundtrip airfare, spending money and a three-night stay in a luxury HomeAway villa in Los Angeles.
