Enjoy the lifestyles of the rich and famous – at least for a while

5-star palaces not doing it for you? Boutique hotels no longer ringing your bell? Sleeping on a converted plane, train or under the sea feeling a little passe? Fear not, we’ve got something just for you.

This infographic turned up in the Grown-up Travel Guide inbox a few days ago and opened our eyes to a whole different type of accommodation – the former homes of the stars of stage and screen, rock stars and a token boy-band member if that’s your thing.

Recreated in the style of its celebrity inhabitant, each home offers the opportunity to feel how the other half lives for the duration of a short-term rental contract.

Personally I’d have no hesitation in trying out Necker Island, assuming money was no object. This is as much to try the legendary cliff-top outhouse as it is to wallow in Caribbean luxury, I’ll admit…

Which place would you most want to try?
