A Better Way


With deep expertise and knowledge from carrying out design and build projects in Southern Europe, August, offers Abode2 their insight into the better way to own a holiday home

Like many on the homeownership journey, many find it challenging to not only find a holiday home in a new country, even harder if you don’t speak the language, but also everything after you have decided this is the house of your dreams.

It can be especially time-consuming and a minefield to navigate. There also tends to be a lot of questions that need to be answered...

  • How do I find qualified people to help me assess the property?
  • Where do I start when it comes to renovation?
  • Who will oversee the renovation if I can’t be there on the ground most of the time?
  • Can I even communicate with the suppliers and speak their language?
  • How much extra is it going to cost me?
  • Does this even make sense?

After acquiring the property and once the renovations are done, it's about figuring out how to design and furnish it... After all, it's your home so it should feel cosy, comfortable and to your style. Typically, by the time many reach this point, many are so overwhelmed in their journey, they are keen to just "get it done", focusing on function rather than the little details that can transform a freshly painted property into their dream holiday home.

Exhausted by the unexpected pitfalls that many have had to overcome, many haven't even had a chance to enjoy their new holiday homes before being greeted with more joys of home ownership. That is, the ongoing upkeep and fixing which comes with any house that tends to always take up a lot of time and reduces the time enjoyed whilst on holidays... and did we mention the garden and the pool? Who is going to deal with that? You, probably.

Not only have we experienced and witnessed this first hand, but we also hear these challenges and feedback time and time again from families who go on the homeownership journey for their dream home. Only to realise... that they would never do it again if they knew what they know now. A very common revelation echoed by many of our August Collection families.

Holiday home ownership should be easy. Tackling all of the above is why August exists and why we believe it's a model that combines the best of true homeownership by eliminating all the pain points typically associated with ownership on your own.

Together with August, you get a completely systematic and streamlined process with full transparency. You as an owner is in possession of your own five keys to your very own properties in the most beautiful places in Europe. All the benefits of sole ownership without any of the hassle.

With August you get:

  • The best homes in the best locations
  • Fully renovated
  • Beautifully interior designed
  • Managed and maintained

It does not have to be expensive and cumbersome to be a homeowner in Europe.
