Fancy a whirlwind weekend in a chic Parisian apartment? Or how about a week in a charming English estate? These too-good-to-be true vacations just got a whole lot more accessible, thanks to Luxe Home Swap, a home exchange service that allows you to temporarily switch homes with like-minded travelers around the world.
The process couldn’t be simpler: after signing up for the service, post a brief description and photos of your home. Then, let the browsing begin. Homes on the site range from cozy one bedrooms in the heart of Manhattan to sprawling farmhouses in the Italian countryside to the four bedroom Moroccan home by the sea, seen here. Once you’ve found a dream home in your dream locale, Luxe Home Swap connects you with the owner and before you can say “The Holiday” you’re on your way to their home and they’re heading to yours.
Membership is $159 annually and allows you to swap homes as many times as you want. Not a bad deal for the price of a single night in a hotel.
