How To Vacation Like The Rich and Famous

At one point or another, we’ve all been sucked into one of those “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” “MTV Cribs” type shows filled with the opulence and excess of celebrity homes.

Maybe you watched in awe as the camera panned over each solid gold toilet seat, indoor bowling alley and perfectly manicured rose garden. Maybe you’ve seethed with jealousy at the gilded majesty of the good life.

Whichever your reaction, you’ve no doubt muttered to yourself “If I could just spend a day living like that…” Mutter no more, because some of the most stunning celebrity homes are surprisingly within reach for the adventurous holidaymaker who knows where to look.

The infographic below, courtesy Schofields Insurance, collates the most luxurious celebrity holiday homes, which are, or were once, owned by the stars and are now available to rent for your next vacation.

Just think, you could wake up on Necker Island, Richard Branson’s “home away from home,” and look out at the same view Sir Richard looked out on when he thought, “Hey, I should start a cruise line.”

And who wouldn’t want to tell their friends they’re staying at Christie Brinkley’s house? Or that they’re vacationing at Sting’s 16th century villa?

The prices on the infographic below are in British Pounds, so do your own conversion here then get your travel agent on the horn to  book your celebrity getaway.
