Home Away from Home


August Collection is a pioneering high-end homeownership concept for people who love meaningful travel and the serenity of well-designed abodes

The dream of having a holiday home is widespread, yet in reality, often bears complexities and stresses. Enter August, a dedicated team of real estate experts, that have developed an innovative ownership model with a difference. By curating Collections of properties, clients can own five luxury holiday homes, styled and managed to the highest standards.

Specialised in finding exclusive properties in the most desirable locations, the in-house designers meticulously refurbish the buildings, restoring and repurposing authentic details that reflect their architectural heritage. Whether a pétanque court in Provence or a pool under olive trees in Tuscany, August is committed to an aesthetic that is defined by quality and craftsmanship. Especially, the personal, decorative touches that make each property feel like home.


August’s real estate always feels like a genuine part of the region, not just because the interior concepts take inspiration from the local setting. On average, each Collection owner – from Pied à Terre to Signature to Premium and the new off-market category: Prime – use their properties for approximately 10 weeks per year. With this unique model, the homes are occupied almost entirely across the year, giving back to the local communities. Essentially, August offers a sustainable lifestyle investment in beautifully restored homes – proving that in this Homeownership community, August is more than a month.
