From a haunted castle in France to a paranormal pub in the United Kingdom, these haunted locations are enough to frighten even the most sceptic travellers.

Château de Brissac, Maine-et-Loire, France

This is France's tallest castle, with seven floors, and is known as the "Giant of the Loire Valley." 204 rooms, multiple picture galleries, and a private opera house seating 200 people. It was a stronghold built in the 11th century by the Counts of Anjou, and King Louis XIII visited in 1620.

The most active ghost is La Dame Verte (Green Lady), who was supposedly King Charles VII's illegitimate child and was slain by her husband in the château in the 15th century when he caught her having an affair. She is usually seen dressed in her green gown in the chapel's tower room, with gaping holes where her eyes and nose should be. She can be heard moaning around the castle when she is not startling people with her apparition.

Current situation: The château is a popular hotel that conducts special events such as a Christmas market and wine tastings from its own vineyards. Those who are brave enough to remain the night enjoy lavishly decorated chambers with vintage furniture.

Monte Cristo Homestead, New South Wales, Australia

There's the young child who fell down the stairs, the maid who fell from the balcony, and the stable lad who died from burns. The most active, though, is the spirit of the caretaker's kid, who was discovered curled up next to his mother's dead body and tied up for 40 years.

Current situation: The house is now a bed and breakfast, with dinner followed by a ghost tour where you can discover all about its horrible past. Those who are brave enough can spend the night in the haunted house.

Flamingo, Las Vegas, USA

Until a horrific assassination six months after its launch in 1947, the Flamingo was the pride and pleasure of infamous mobster Bugsy Seigel. However, some claim that he decided to stay indefinitely.

Bugsy has purportedly been seen at his garden monument, inside the wedding chapel, and walking about the Presidential Suite, which still retains the gold bathroom fittings from his original room, at this haunted Las Vegas hotel. Guests in his suite have reported hearing talking and seeing dark shadows hovering at the foot of their beds.
