Your family is unique and not one family is the same. We know everyone's needs will be slightly different and your holidays might be anything from school holidays, long term stays, off-season adventures to last-minute "yeah-why-not" spontaneous trips. Depending on the make up, demographic and location of your family, we have carefully curated August collections so there's a mix of families with different needs, allowing everyone to get the time they want.
21 different families, 5 stunning homes = more than the time you need.
Co-ownership makes sense when it comes to holiday home ownership and is extremely attractive as it allows costs to be shared and significantly reduces the cost of owning properties abroad. That said, it was very important for us to still allow for enough flexibility in our booking system to make sure that our families get the weeks they want.
We've worked out the perfect families to homes ratio: 21 families for 5 homes allows an average 12 weeks per family. Many have asked why so many weeks and argue this is far more than what is needed but whilst this is true, it's also on purpose.
This balanced ratio allows for flexibility so that you will get the weeks that you want, while still making the co-ownership share price significantly lower than buying one of the homes on your own. If the number of families was to increase, it would be a struggle to get the most attractive dates, and families would feel pressure to travel at times that do not suit them.
Where's the fun in owning your own holiday homes when you can't use them when you want?
The booking system uses a points-based structure with each member of the collection allocated the same amount of usage points each year allowing you to book your weeks.
The weeks are divided into 4 different categories based on seasons with each category incurring different points.
For example, with their points, a family could book up to 20 low season weeks or 7 super peak weeks. The reality lies in the middle with families booking a mix of peak and low season weeks and it will vary depending on the families needs and flexibility.
Points are released in batches throughout the year to ensure a fair chance to book your preferred weeks as well as weeks during peak seasons. This allows for flexibility where you can book different holidays every year and at different points in time.
We've even ensured there's a guarantee of at least 1 week during the ski season and multiple weeks during the Summer holidays so you won't miss out.
After all, these are your homes so we have carefully considered all your needs and designed our booking system to allow you to make the most of them.
So if you like to plan ahead, or even decide closer to the date, we have you covered. In fact, we've even factored in spontaneous trips so if one of your homes is available and you book within a 30 day period, we won't even use any of your points. That's even more time to holiday!
