The Foreign Exchange

Swapping your home with someone on the other side of the world is becoming an increasingly popular (and cheap) way to holiday.

Love Home Swap are specialists in organising exchanges of smart properties, ones that are stylish but not necessarily huge.

The initial hour of a house-swap is the most exciting, the part where you let yourself into your temporary home and see for the first time the property you've swapped your own for. The trend for house-swapping is on the increase, not only because it's cheaper and offers more space than staying at a hotel, but because it's more adventurous - setting a foot into a hotel room for the first time just doesn't have quite the same thrill.
