Discover home swaps in far-out looking locations to make you feel like you are holidaying abroad this year, even if you're only a short distance from home. 

As we see restrictions ease and travel slowly become a reality again, many members are looking to find their next home swap. While many of us will be dreaming of jet setting to foreign lands, home swapping locally may be the reality for many in 2020.

For those of us that are dreaming of home swapping further afield, we’ve collated the top UK homes that will make you feel like you’re holidaying in a different country. From a Scottish log cabin that looks like it's in Switzerland to a luxe pad on the southern coast that looks like it belongs in the Hollywood Hills, there are a number of homes on Love Home Swap that have architectural similarities to those from another country.



Germany or Scotland?

For those of you looking for a luxury home swap, this castle in Scotland that will make you feel like you are home swapping for a German Schloss in the Bavarian mountains.

France or Somerset?

If a chateau in the hills of Provence sounds like your ideal home swap, you can experience all the grandeur within a couple of hours' drive by swapping for this English farmhouse in Somerset. Or, if you're able to get to France this summer, you can also enjoy staying in this chateau in Pauillac, our Somerset doppelganger.

Switzerland or Scotland?

Do not be deceived by its alpine exterior – this charming log cabin is actually located in the equally charming Scottish Highlands, nestled in its own private woodland but just a short journey from Inverness.

“There are many places to visit in the surrounding area, the hard choice for us was to either stay and enjoy the coziness of our log cabin or go out and explore the beautiful Scottish Highland. We will definitely be coming back to stay! ” – Juliana, who swapped January 2020

LA or Dorset?

Re-live ‘The Holiday’ home swap experience by swapping your home for this stunning LA-looking pad. One thing to note is this home isn’t in the Hollywood Hills, it’s actually in Dorset. Located on the coast in the seaside town of Poole, you can transport yourself to the Californian coastline while staying in the UK.

Netherlands or London?

Feel like you are on a European city break and enjoy a stay in this luxury boathouse in Chelsea, London.

Miami or London?

This home may look like it belongs on the Florida coast, but believe it or not, this art deco townhouse is located in Chiswick, West London. It might not always be Miami's 31 degrees, but this London home enjoys riverfront views of the Thames and is only 30 minutes from central London and a stone’s throw from the Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew, one of London’s biggest tourist attractions.
