Swap for a stylish vacation home
A worldwide house-swapping site that's aimed at the design set, Luxe Home Swap has everything from one-bedroom apartments to sprawling houses. Looking for a two-bedroom apartment next to the Tate Modern in London? No problem. How about four bedrooms in a village near Lucca, Italy? For a membership fee of $159, it could be yours for a week.
T+L Tip: A lot of the listings are second homes, so you don't necessarily have to arrange a simultaneous swap.
