Your homes are at the heart of everything we do

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.

Provençal villa

Location: Valbonne, South of France
Scope: Renovation, Interior Design

Sourcing the best homes with potential is what we do. We transformed this home to deliver excellent entertaining spaces inside and out, hotel grade bedrooms and bathrooms and spruced up the lush gardens and pool area. Our interior design teams renovated and meticulously designed this dream home with the August touch.

English countryside cottage

Location: Cotswolds Cottage
Scope: Remodelling, Renovation, Interior Design

This quintessential English cottage has been reimagined with a new kitchen, bathrooms and living spaces. Across the ground floor, we have configured the rooms to comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests for dining, entertaining and relaxing.

We focused on creating modern and functional spaces while maintaining a cosy and unique atmosphere that reflects both the house’s history and the local region. The front garden offers a large, secluded entertaining area that benefits from sunshine throughout the afternoon and an oversized terrace in the back garden overlooking the home's enchantingly wild woodland.

Cannes seaview apartment

Location: Cannes, French Riviera
‍Scope: Remodelling, Renovation, Interior Design

A chic apartment in Cannes that has been transformed from a dark one-bedroom property that had not maximised its space to the expansive two double bedroom property (both with en suites) and large open plan living space that we have today. Enjoy taking lunch on your spacious terrace overlooking the sea. The principal suite has a further terrace on the west side of the apartment, where you can watch the beautiful sunsets over the mountains.

Chamonix ski apartment

Location: Chamonix, French Alps
Scope: Remodelling, Renovation, Interior Design

This beautifully renovated chalet apartment enjoys views of Mont Blanc from the large terrace of this top floor chalet apartment. This re-design offered all the luxuries of a destination ski hotel in your own home, including a private sauna, four beautiful bedrooms, two of which are en suite and a brand new kitchen in the heart of the home. You will be charmed by the sympathetic way this chalet becomes part of the scenery from your panoramic mountain views.

Owning a property the way it is now doesn't make sense, it's left empty most of the time and you have to keep going back to the same place time and time again. So we created August with the owner in mind, it's a better way to own holiday homes in Europe. - Mélie Dunod, CEO
