Best European Countries For A Home Exchange Experience

Finding the perfect home swap option can be extremely difficult, particularly if this is the first time that
you are trying out the idea of a holiday home exchange. Leaving your home in the hands of a stranger
can be extremely daunting for some, however the enjoyment that many individuals, couples and
families have when it comes to a home exchange experience is yet to be rivalled. Trusting in humanity
goes a long way when it comes to your home experience, and with AirBnb rising in popularity, it won’t
be surprising to see home swaps begin to rock the boat even more.

If you have a property in a prime location, such as in the centre of London, then finding a home
exchange experience is likely to be easy, but knowing what you want out of the home on the other side
can be difficult. Here, we’re taking a look at some of the most impressive countries in Europe for the
perfect home exchange experience, to give you a helping hand particularly if this is the first time you are
experiencing this. After that, all you have to do is get in touch with the home owner, book your flights,
pack your bags, arrange your e111 renewal and go!

Italy

Italy is a beautiful country for more reasons than one, but for a home exchange experience, you are
certain to find plenty of properties to suit your requirements. Whether you’re looking for a lavish
apartment in the centre of Rome or Milan, or an incredible 16 people mansion in the heart of Stelvio
National Park, you are certain to find what you’re looking for. Italy is well known for its cuisine and love
of coffee, and with a home exchange experience, you can embrace culture in a whole new light. Rural or
central, Italy home exchanges boast the best of both worlds.

France

Home exchanges in France will often provide you with a beautiful home in a village which you will
probably never explore if you weren’t open to the incredible opportunities a home exchange can
provide. You can enjoy a taste of local life, be near a quiet, tourist-free beach if you choose your location
right, and enjoy a spacious and enjoyable home. Alternatively, you may land yourself a swanky flat in the
heart of Paris, or even a villa in the South of France allowing you to catch some well-needed rays.

Latvia

An interesting addition to our list, if you’re looking for something a little different then why not consider
a home exchange in Latvia? Latvian homes often provide a homely feel, sourced from natural materials,
providing you with an authentic experience if you choose the right neighbourhood. With some Latvian
beaches offering the whitest sand in the world, and incredible music festivals to enjoy, you can be sure
to find something to enjoy when you home exchange in this incredible city.

A home exchange will often appeal to individual travellers, but that doesn’t mean that families can’t
enjoy this exciting prospect too. You will be staying in a local area, embracing local life and often the
prices can be much better (if not free if you time your stay right!). If you desire the need to move away
from resorts and tourist hotspots, or if you want to get a better understanding of life in the country
you’re visiting, then a home exchange could be the ideal option for you.
