Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to holiday in an exclusive, world-class chalet? What about one teeming with luxurious accouterments in one of the most famous ski areas in the world? Well, one ThirdHome family did just that—and is here to tell us all about it!

Episode 5 of the Paramount+ original series, Millionaire Holiday Home Swap, introduces us to two ThirdHome gems—Chalet Les Brames and the Palmer family. The Palmers became members of ThirdHome in 2020. In 2022, they swapped time in their second home to spend a holiday in what The Telegraph calls a “splendidly secluded, sumptuously furnished and equipped to satisfy most guest whims” chalet.

Below, Lisa Palmer talks about her family’s experience at Chalet Les Brames and some of their other travel adventures:

What did you enjoy most about staying at Chalet Les Brames?

Our favorite part of the house we stayed in was the chef—he was fabulous. The staff was a close second.

What was your favorite part about filming Millionaire Holiday Home Swap?

Our favorite part of filming was getting to know the girls [from the film crew] and hearing their stories—very sweet girls. They were very nice and had traveled all over shooting for this show and others—it was great to hear about it.

How has ThirdHome changed the way you travel?

There are times and places we prefer a home over a hotel. ThirdHome has opened up all of the home locations we didn’t consider in the past.

Who do you usually travel with, and what’s the reasoning behind your choice? (Solo or group? Friends or family?)

We mostly travel with our family as it is a nice way to stay connected with our children. However, with the larger ThirdHome houses, we have included friends as well, making our travels even more special.

What is your top travel tip?

Our best travel tip is to not check bags. We try not to check bags if we can—they always get lost. My friend Stacy just got to Italy minus a bag; she was with us in France.

What is the most exotic food you’ve tried while traveling? 

The most exotic food I’ve ever been served is Sea Cucumber in China, but I couldn’t bring myself to try it.

Do you travel with a fixed itinerary, or do you choose to go with the flow? Why?

I travel with a fixed itinerary. I’m not chill enough to go with the flow.
