How to Sleep in a Parisian's Bed

How to Sleep in a Parisian's Bed

Reason #1 that Paris is the Sexiest City in the World: Sleeping in their beds!

Why bunk in a shabby hotel when you can sleep in a real Parisian apartment? I was thrilled last year to discover the genius of housing swaps. After quickly listing my apartment on Craigslist, I arranged to swap for a pretty apartment on the Left Bank. It was so easy! Some friends say they'd be nervous about people messing up their stuff, but I think you can get a good sense of people from their emails. Now when I travel, I feel like more of an insider since I'm staying in an apartment. Plus, you can spend the money you save on fabulous dinners, museum tickets and boutique shopping. I'd highly recommend it. Just for fun, check out the Parisian apartments available for swap right now between New York and Paris (although you can swap from any city, of course). Have any of you tried apartment swapping? Any good or bad stories?
