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.

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'.
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).
