Your homes are at the heart of everything we do

August provides a consistent standard of quality across our collections and properties. We make sure all homes are welcoming, family friendly and feature bespoke and stylish interiors.

We buy homes exclusively in traditional and sought-after destinations.

Where we buy

From years of building up a vast network of relationships and connections in our regions, we also have the unfair advantage of getting first dibs on not-on-the-market real estate from our partners. This provides us with a unique opportunity to find some of the best unique properties in each region for our families.

We look at flight connections as well as flight times when choosing destinations and how easy it is to get to your destinations. The properties are acquired in locations which are attractive all year round.

How we select

Your homes are at the heart of everything we do, and are carefully handpicked to meet your high expectations.

We have built up extensive knowledge of all our destinations. With our market knowledge, we know exactly where the best homes are going to be located (and where they won’t be), we know what things are going to cost and how we get the best deal. We have also garnered a lot of experience in refurbishment, as it is unusual that we can find a home that is 100% in order - often creating that perfect home ourselves.

Great respect and love for original details and material choices are also essential in order to create beautiful homes with the right atmosphere.

Renovation

Together with our partners we have more than 30 years of experience in building, renovating, designing and restoring homes in the South of Europe.

Oftentimes, the perfect holiday property is not on the market. We therefore focus on the location and potential of the land and property that we buy. We then use our expertise to renovate, design and furnish each home to August’s high standards.

Case studies

Contemporary luxury villa

Location: Costa Brava, Spain
‍Scope: Design and Build, Interior

A splendid modern villa, designed to suit the needs of a growing family, this contemporary home stands on a front-line plot that directly faces the Cadaques bay.

The accommodation includes a large open-plan living and dining room, that opens onto an extensive covered terrace, a large island dining kitchen, a master suite, six further en-suite bedrooms, a gym and fitness suite, cinema, office, and a garage for four vehicles.

Mid 50s townhouse

Location: Toulouse, France
Scope: Remodelling, Renovation, Interior Design

This charming 10 room mid-50s townhouse had not been updated in over 30 years. Through our design and build process we completed the entire renovation, including new kitchen, bathrooms, plumbing, electrics as well as garden and swimming pool, within a swift timeframe.

Throughout the process there was a continued focus on creating modern and functional spaces, while maintaining a cosy and unique atmosphere that respected both the house’s history and the new owners’ style. The peaceful garden and pool area we created complements the large and bright communal spaces, making it a perfect spot to enjoy intimate dinners all year long.

Traditional XIX century property

Location: Toulouse, France
Scope: Renovation, Interior Design
This traditional XIX century property was initially composed of 3 smaller flats. The flat was initially acquired for its traditional flooring, wall painting and mouldings dating back to 1900.

We renovated this space into a 12 room contemporary flat, mixing traditional architectural elements with modern designs.

For us - the unique thing about August is that we get access to 5 homes all over Europe in remarkable locations for the same price as a normal holiday home in the UK.

Interior design

Our co-founder also started the most successful online interior design platform in the UK, Homewings, and has furnished and designed interiors for more than 10,000 British homes, demonstrating a true understanding of the styles and tastes of British families.

We aim to bring this expertise to our families and combine it with respect and love for original regional differences. Together with our partners, we make sure every August home feels comfortable and attractive, yet homely.
