Last week, Steve and Denise visited the Ampilly quarry in Burgundy, France, to research options for an upcoming project. We were looking for a French limestone flooring that could be supplied in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and surface finishes and could also be cut for steps and wall copings. We had used Ampilly for the terrace at Amarestone HQ (pictured below) so it is a stone that we already knew quite well but this was the first time we had made it out to the quarry.

French Limestone - choosing the right one:
I was approached a little while ago to source some French limestone flooring for a private customer who was renovating a kitchen in an old house. I asked which particular French stone they had in mind and the reply came back that, "French Limestone is French Limestone, isn't it? Isn't it all the same thing?"
