Ambrières village where some fields have the right idea to dare to venture to the edge of the road is the beautiful countryside... The church is not like the others, she also decided she was as pretty without a steeple. It is true that, over the centuries, it was dismantled several times. Some timbered houses well maintained appear here and there. They are beautiful, large and remind us that the Champagne heritage is not forgotten. Some have kept the barn, the large carriage door, also called porterue or charretil, it allowed the entry of huge overflowing carts harvest or straw.

The bicycle is king, it is not the ribs that will scare the Champenois or visitors, as several streets in the area are named after great ribs.

The term "timber" when the Middle Ages were called dove or corner posts, posts four corners of the building (Dove is an old variant column).

The assembly of the various elements of wood used to lock and maintain the lining cob. This filling material, made of clay and straw fragments oat kneaded, is placed between the posts and supported by the slats of wood, or palsans paleçons. It ended with a lime compound coating and sand which was on top of the horse manure and animal hair or horsehair.
