Real Estate Week, Theme Week

Sometimes, A-listers just need to get away from the crazy town known as Hollywood.

Yes, they have all the power to vacation anywhere they want around the world. In fact, they likely have access to private jets, secluded villas and never ending amenities.

But for some famous stars, enjoying some R&R away from the daily grind can be found at their luxurious vacation homes.

Taylor Swift has a special home in Rhode Island that just so happens to be a hot spot on major United States holidays—Fourth of July flashbacks anyone? As for Céline Dion, she had a mansion that could double as a water park in Jupiter, Florida.

Outside the United States, George Clooney has a second home in Italy while Mariah Carey once had the chance to rest comfortably at an estate in the Bahamas.

As we celebrate Real Estate week at E! News, take a look at just a few of the people we can't help but be envious of hen it comes to their vacation homes.
