Gilt Global

The lowdown: There’s nothing quite like staying on board your own yacht but, if it’s berthed in the South of France and you’re heading to New York for business or fancy a holiday in Thailand, it’s not always the most practical option. Gilt Global, a private members club for owners of elite ‘assets’, is offering the perfect solution. For an annual fee members are able to swap stays at their high-end residences, homes and yachts granting access to some of the world’s finest private properties. If you're looking for the perfect mountain retreat for the ski season then how about Chalet Jackson in Megève (pictured) or why not consider the lavish 24-bedroom Kinross House near Edinburgh, Scotland for the most opulent of New Year's Eve parties? Other options currently include a private island in the Maldives, a palatial French château and an exquisite hilltop villa in Mallorca.

How to join: Members must either own their own luxury residence, yacht or similar - which will be assessed for suitability by Gilt Global - or must be recommended by a current member. The annual fee for owner members is £5,000 and £1,000 for guest members. Visit giltglobal.com.
