With nearly 1,000 homes listed in Barcelona City and Province, a Barcelona home exchange offers the chance of a very different kind of holiday experience.
What's more you are very likely to make significant savings on accommodation costs, particularly if you're travelling as a family.
As you can see from the map below, the majority of the properties listed are in the City of Barcelona itself but many of these are outside Barcelona City Centre and the less touristic Districts of Barcelona, giving you the chance to get to know the city in a very different way.
There are also a good number of listings in the satellite towns of Hospitalet and Badalona in El Barcelonès and Sant Cugat in El Vallès Oriental, all of which are just a few minutes metro or bus ride from Barcelona.
You'll also find homes on offer in the resorts of Castelldefels and Sitges to the south of the city as well as other towns in El Garraf.
In fact, as it is by far the largest home swap website, HomeExchange.com offers an excellent choice of properties all over Barcelona Province.
Obviously, you're not limited to a Barcelona Home Exchange and the website offers properties all over Catalonia, Spain and the rest of the world.
This means signing up to HomeExchange.com is also a great opportunity for Barcelona home owners because listing your own property will give you the opportunity to home swap with other owners around the globe.
Obviosly, as Barcelona is such an attractive destination, you can be very confident that people will be queueing up to come to an agreement with you.
Obviously, there are pitfalls to the system but HomeExchange.com is the largest website of its kind and is full of good advice on how to get the best out of a hous swap and make sure that everything runs smoothly and according to plan.
