Airbnb Categories Castles Commercial

Airbnb promotes its Categories in a series of new ads.

One of them focuses on castles and shows photos taken by photographer Alex Huanfa Cheng in a 12th century castle from Portugal, where he went with his little son. Cheng and his wife wanted to get out of their city apartment for a fun summer trip before their son headed back to school, so they grabbed some family friends and traveled to Portugal for a summer break-medieval style.

The ad gives viewers a glimpse at the fun and drama Cheng and his friends had at the castle with two young kids.
The song used in the video is “Carmina Burana: I. O Fortuna” composed by Carl Orff and performed by London Symphony Orchestra & Richard Hickox.

The castle featured in the commercial, “Santa Marta de Portuzelo Castle”, is located 40 minutes from Porto (Francisco Sa Carneiro) airport and is a Manueline style house that has elements from the 12th to the 19th centuries. It is approximately 2000 m2, has 12 bedrooms, with 9 available to guests.
