Spending quality time together is what holidays are all about for this August family from Surrey

"The opportunity to completely unwind from work and spend time with the family is very important for us. Everything is taken care of before we arrive and when we leave, allowing us to just enjoy our holiday. "

As a family of medical professionals, our latest August family shares a busy schedule, usually working long shifts. So when their schedules finally align and it's possible for the clan to get away, it's important their time off together is as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible. It's this that resonates with our Surrey family during their usual holiday home browse about, but it was what was happening around the world and the fact that they knew the future of travelling would change that made them really consider it was the right time for them. That's when they discovered August.

the quality time off they value so much

Welcome to August, can you please tell us a little bit about your family?

We are a family of four, with two school-aged girls, who live in the beautiful Surrey hills.

What is most important to you when you go on holidays?

The opportunity to completely unwind from work & spend time with the family, but also have the ability to immerse ourselves in the local environment. We travel approximately four times a year, currently within the school holidays and where our schedule permits.

Why does owning a holiday home appeal to you?

We’ve never owned any other holiday homes, but really like the idea of having the opportunity to get to know a particular area in depth. By being able to return to the same property over a number of years it seems a great way to do this without any time pressure especially given the current climate.

How long have you been considering purchasing a holiday home?

Every time we have returned from a family holiday we always talk about looking to buy somewhere but have never got round to taking a final step.

What do you consider when choosing your holiday home?

Location, location, location! We have spent holidays in Provence, Mallorca & the French Alps over many years & are looking forward to being able to explore Tuscany too. The option of a place in the Cotswolds, which is really just on our doorstep, is an added bonus.

Why does August make sense for you?

The properties on offer are of a very high standard, in great locations – places we already know that we enjoy visiting. Also, a great advantage of August is that there are no ongoing “jobs” to do once you arrive at your property – everything is taken care of before we arrive and when we leave, allowing us to just enjoy our holiday.

Which August home destination are you most looking forward to?

For the summer holidays, Provence will be great. We have skied in Chamonix, but are also looking forward to visiting it outside the ski season too.
