Our very own Phil Schofield commented:
“For those who would like to see what it’s like to live the celebrity lifestyle, even if it’s just for a week, it is actually possible. Renting a property owned or once owned by a celebrity is not as unattainable as you think. From as little as £144 per person per week you too can enjoy the little luxuries in life.”
“Obviously some places such as Necker Island, owned by Richard Branson would be a once in a lifetime holiday for most people, however as you can see there are a number of properties which are much more affordable for a week’s holiday. And you get to enjoy it with friends and family, making it a once in a life time experience.”
