How do August find great properties?

Our expert team can gain access to homes not available on the open market having spent years developing relationships with the communities in the areas in which we buy.  With prior experience in property development and renovation, we understand perfectly which properties have the right potential as the perfect holiday homes. We understand the cost associated with renovating properties abroad and have a strong team of advisors and partners, ranging from estate agents, design and build companies and interior designers.

What are the main criteria for selecting the homes?

To become an August holiday home, a property must meet certain key criteria: located in one of the key locations we have carefully selected, proximity to an international airport, a beautiful view and surroundings, local charm, plenty of bright, communal spaces, great outdoor areas (terrace, garden, pool), new bathrooms and kitchen appliances etc.

It is often challenging to find the perfect property that meets all our requirements and at the right price. We therefore much prefer to find an older yet charming house full of potential in the perfect location that we can renovate to our standards.

Once we have assessed the property and are confident that we can transform it into a perfect charming apartment, townhouse or villa, we purchase it. The renovation works will follow. We exclusively work with the most renowned local tradespeople in each area.
