Swap meet, luxe home edition

February 25, 2007|Vani Rangachar

If the walls of your Malibu beach-side mansion are closing in, think about trading spaces at www.homeexchangegold.com, the new deluxe edition of HomeExchange.com. In this snazzier version, you'll find an 18th century villa set on four acres (yes, it has a pool) outside of Florence, Italy, among other properties.

What's hot: The swapping potential is dreamy -- a London flat in tony Mayfair, a castle in Scotland, even a Hamptons hideaway when you need to escape New York City.

What's not: The membership price: $500 a year, cheaper than a penthouse suite at the Four Seasons. But there's no room service.
