Vailhourles Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

A 4p holiday home you can enjoy peace and quietness in a beautiful setting.

History of the house:

'Residence Ambert was for centuries a farmhouse, The oldest part dating from the 9th century, The other parts later joined together and extended.

The property has been beautifully restored, personally by Resi and Ambert van Eeten, with respect for the original authentic details.

Holiday home with an overground swimming pool in diameter 5.55m

'Residence Ambert' is for rent from April till October.

Holiday home 'Residence Ambert' ( 70m2) has a living (30m2) with a an open kitchen. The living has a comfortable lounge suite, a coffee-table and a dining area.

The special decorations, paintings and the 'trompe-l'oeil' in the holiday home are made by Resi and gives it a very special touch.

You will find a TV, DVD- and CD-player and wireless internet.

The kitchen area is equipped with a refrigerator, gas hob, microwave, little oven, dishwasher and a coffee maker.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a shower room.

The shower room has a shower, a toilet and a dual washbasin.

The French doors in the holiday home gives you access to the courtyard with table and chairs under the gazebo so you can sit in the shade.

In the garden you can find several nice and peaceful places in the sun or the shade.

There is a BBQ with a big round table.

It is a garden full of surprises.

Enjoy the new placed over ground swimming pool (5.55m in diameter), where you can cool down. It is safe for children.

Take a look at our video film at www.residenceambert.com (on which unfortunately, you can not see the new pool. Sorry for that). But there are photos from the new pool.

Resi and Ambert left The Netherlands in 2004 to go to France, where they bought the beautiful house 'Residence Ambert'

Ambert wanted to restore the house and Resi wanted to start her Gallery, but it took more than 8 years to start the Gallery, because there was so much work for Ambert and Resi on the house. We want to invite you to come to us and have a look at all the work we have done to the house and garden, now it has become a little paradise.

At last Resi opened her Gallery in June 2012.

You also can visit the Gallery were you find the art made by Resi. Paintings, sculptures, doll art and very special jewellery. It is also possible to join classes in painting, sculpting and modelling, doll-art and jewellery, during your holiday.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2004

We chose this property, because the house and the setting is very beautiful and it is so quiet over here. The village is small and the people are very friendly. We can make beautiful walks from our house direct into the woods. We are not far from the city, but far enough to have our peace. Its paradise over here.

The house has a charming touch like you are in a fairytale. With the Pigeonier ( pigeon tower) it looks like a little castle.

The beautiful stone work with the warm yellow colour. All placed in the setting of the beautiful garden, gives us a very happy feeling.

And now with the new overground swimming pool in diameter 5.55m it is lovely to cool down in the warm summers and very save for the little children.

It is also nice for you to know that you are the only guests in 'Residence Ambert'.

Lovely gite , Great location.

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely week at Residence Ambert, The gite was lovely and very well equipped,Beautiful garden, The perfect place to relax after a day sight seeing.

Resi and Ambert are perfect hosts, Knowing my mother has Coeliac disease Resi had gluten free bread in for her and even took us to supermarket so we good but more gluten free produce for her. We dined wth them a few night and the food and company was excellent.

St Grat is a pretty little village and perfect for exploring the beautiful area.

Thank you Ambert and Resi for a perfect holiday.

Would certainly recommend and will book again if in area.

Holiday perfection

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday in France in an area we had not visited before.

The Residence Ambert could not have been bettered. It was absolutely BRILLIANT and the owners, Resi & Ambert, were the perfect hosts. We were given such a warm and sincere welcome by them both and if we needed them during our stay they were always on hand to help.

The accommodation was delightful, well furnished and very comfortable, as were the beds. We have never before experienced such a well equipped self catering property, plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, a dishwasher, hob, microwave plus a small oven. There was a television, stereo, dvd player and, should you have children, plenty of toys and games to play with.

The garden is a haven of peace and tranquility with all you need for outdoor dining, plus a BBQ area for cooking. (We would also certainly recommend booking a meal with the owners - we had a fantastic meal & evening with them).

Although St Grat is a small village, we found it to have a delightful ambiance and we visited many places of interest and great beauty in the region.

Resi & Ambert have thought of everything and have created near perfection at their Gite and we will certainly be recommending it to others and we hope to return ourselves.

Une semaine en août 2011

  • 5 of 5
Un très bel endroit dans un tout petit village à quelques kilomètres de Villefranche de Rouergue. Pas un bruit... Juste la cloche de l'église qui égraine les heures !

Accueil très chaleureux de la part de Resi et Ambert. Ils sont là pour répondre à nos questions et nous conseiller les visites à faire (Et la plage à Lagarde Viaur)

Le gîte est très bien équipé (lave vaisselle, télévision, chaîne HiFi...) et joliment décoré. La literie est très confortable. Un barbecue et un salon de jardin sont à disposition.
Nous l'avons déjà recommandé à des amis qui souhaitent visiter la région.

Gracias por haber hecho nuestra estancia en este remanso de paz y belleza lo mas feliz posible. Ha sido una semana fantastica al igual que lo es la casa. Una cosa ileva a la otra, y la paz, la belleza y la tranquilidad se contagian. El tiempo ha pasado demasiado deprisa y a los ninos les habiera gustado pasar agui todo el verano pero....
La casa es preciosa, Resi y Ambert están siempre ahí cuando los necesitas, hay espacio para descansar y cargar las pilas. Hacía tiempo que no disfrutaba tanto cenando a la luz de la luna, escuchando a las aves nocturnas y disfrutando de las estrellas. Eskerrik asko,

The region is named after the river Aveyron, hidden between the hills and mountains, cut by river valleys, rich in forests and rocky terrain. The Aveyron is now seen as the green heart of South West France, where nature is not yet spoiled, the fish cheerful swim and it is abundant with wild life. Blessed with a mild climate (the weather stays very nice till late in the season). Within a radius of 50 km around 'Residence Ambert' you will find a few of the most beautiful villages in France, who have earned the predicate: 'un des plus beaux villages de France”: St Cirq Lapopie, Conques, Estaing, La Couvertoirade, Cordes, Najac and Belcastel. Also the cities: Villefranche de Rouergue, Figeac, Cahors, Rodez and Albi are worthwhile to visit. Chateaux, caves, churches and abbeys, the caves of Foissac, markets, vide-greniers (car boot sales) and brocantes (antiques & bric-à-brac), you can find it all in the surroundings. You can start walking from the house right into the woods. Biking with two all terrain bikes (Free). Play pétanque on the special pétanque field on our village green; the pétanque balls you find in the holiday home. You also can play football on the village green.

We can give you nice places to go to little beaches in the neighbourhood.

You can go for a canoe trip in St. Antonin Noble Val or in Najac.

Near the holiday home (15 minutes by car) there is a golf course with 9 holes in a beautiful setting.

Come over here and discover it all. You are most welcome.
