Millionaire Holiday Home Swap: Episode 4 Featured HomesSeptember 27, 2022 • By Emily Minarik
Whether a visiting quiet English country house, a modern tropical hideaway in Thailand, or even a seaside villa in Italy, home swapping provides travelers the opportunity to experience new places like never before. Here are some of the brilliant destinations that THIRDHOME members explore in the fourth episode of the new Paramount + original series, Millionaire Holiday Home Swap.
The Copes in Oxfordshire, England
The Copes is a gorgeous seven-bedroom, five-bathroom, 7000 square-foot home, located in a peaceful “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.” With a classic design and beautiful decor, this Oxfordshire countryside oasis includes a big terrace, glorious garden, and marvelous valley views from every window – providing guests with tranquillity and space to wander inside and out.
Additionally, The Copse has unique on-site amenities, including a hot tub that can accommodate up to five people and a cinema that seats up to 15 people. The property was added to THIRDHOME’s exchange portfolio in 2018. As of September 2022, six members have been lucky enough to spend a week at this tranquil paradise (with another reservation in the books for 2023).
About The Area
There are many fun things for visitors to do in this region of England, including shopping in the quaint boutiques of Marlow or Henley. Guests can attend summer evening races at Royal Windsor Racecourse, or even watch plays at the little theatre at Sonning or the excellent Newbury theatre. Plus, London Paddington is 25 minutes by train from Reading. This destination is the perfect spot for a tranquil vacation in the English countryside!
Baan Saleah in Kata Beach, Thailand
Baan Saleah is a modern designer villa, offering four luxury suites complete with hand-crafted terrazzo baths. This exclusive private oasis is situated within a secure waterfront enclave. The amazing villa sits on the headland between Kata Beach and Kata Noi Beach, and has a 100 square-meter infinity pool, enabling visitors to enjoy their holiday in total privacy.
With four en-suite bedrooms on each of the left and right wings, this villa includes plenty of room for guests and their loved ones. Plus, the modern layout includes a living space at the center with a spacious entertainment room. Baan Saleah was added to THIRDHOME’s property portfolio in 2016. Since then, 16 members have visited this tropical paradise (with one more reservation upcoming in 2023).
About the Experience
Sip a cappuccino or complimentary cocktail (fully complimentary bar available), and listen to the waves crashing on the rocks. Baan Saleah’s loosely-uniformed staff will quietly run the villa for you while you can sit back and relax. They will do all the shopping for you, and cook some of the best Thai food ever tasted. Baan Saleah offers total peace and serenity, but guests can still easily access day-trips to other destinations in Thailand throughout their stay.
Villa La Belle Etoile in Sardinia, Italy
This stunning seafront villa is located in the southern portion of Sardinia (near Cagliari) in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The property features an impressive eight-bedroom en-suite, comfortably sleeping up to 16 people. The villa is ideal for families and large groups of friends, as each bedroom is designed to a theme and includes an en-suite bathroom. Plus, Villa Belle Etoile is exchanged on a full-service basis, and includes seven full-time staff members. This gorgeous, one-of-a-kind getaway was added to THIRDHOME’s portfolio in 2016, and since then, 12 members have made a reservation.
Outside the Villa
Villa La Belle Etoile’s pool gets the sun all day, and maintains its privacy due to the slightly elevated position over the beach. Outdoors, guests can enjoy comfortable sun beds, a hammock, a table tennis table, and a barbecue. Plus, the property resides near a prime beach location. The shallow sea provides a safe oasis for children and long swims. Villa La Belle Etoile is in an unrivaled spot in Italy, and guests are ensured to have a truly memorable trip to Sardinia.
