Dreams are not only to dream: even to make true! One of those dreams was a house in South West France. Due to the mild climate and beautiful scenery. We were looking for an authentic house, with history, comfortable and spacious. That we found at Aubeterre sur Dronne. In the spring and summer of 2014 there, led by "our" designer Joris van Grinsven ((*CONTENT HIDDEN*)) worked extremely hard. And .... It has become a great house: Come and see for yourself!
