We’ve all heard of house swaps before but have you heard of Behomm.
It’s a members only website for creatives who can exchange homes with each other for a long weekend, a week, a month…whatever you decide. It has been set up by Agusti and Eva, two graphic designers from Barcelona who have realised that there are a lot of designers and visual artists out there who travel a lot for business and pleasure, who would appreciate a nice place to stay. Absolutely free.
And because it’s a community website of like-minded people with tasteful homes you can be sure that your house swap will be somewhere beautiful, whether it’s a loft, a cottage or a mansion (actually, not sure if they have any mansions…yet). But they do have some seriously gorgeous abodes.
Of course, the advantages are not just that you will stay somewhere beautiful but that you will also experience that country or city in a real community and not in an impersonal hotel.
What a fabulous idea!
Got my eye on that New York loft.
