This week we hear all about Bill and Carole's home exchange where they swapped their gorgeous traditional looking villa in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for Conrad's stunning interior- designed penthouse with roof garden in Soho, the heart of London.

Beautiful sun filled villa with pool & large garden with BBQ kitchen, San Migel de Allende, Mexico

Married couple Bill and Carole have 3 children and 6 grandchildren and they both own this beautiful home located in the historic centre of San Miguel de Allende, a neighborhood in the lovely San Juan de Dios area. Bill is a lawyer and carole is a professional photographer & artist, both having enjoyed the design, build and decorating of their amazing homes which have been featured in magazines. The villa itself is enough to enjoy and relax by the pool or an exploration of the rich cultural environment of this beautiful colonial city. San Miguel is a walking town and a delight for shoppers, photographers, artists and food lovers, for some breathtaking day dripping, a visit to the Mesoamerican pyramids is a must.

What Conrad loved about Bill and Carole's Home

Huge double height living room, outdoor living room, TV room and incredibly comfortable bedrooms Beautiful, large peaceful courtyard garden Gazebo on rooftop overlooking the town for sunset drinks

How much Conrad saved with the home swap: Several thousand dollars is my guess!

His penthouse in the heart of London was completely renovated in 2005 and features a huge elegant and stylish contemporary open plan living space, perfect for relaxing away from the busy and vibrant London lifestyle. A cosy second bedroom has its own wetroom and the master suite opens up to the beautiful lower roof terrace, stairs lead up to the upper garden levels, offering breathtaking views across all of Central London.
