About Us

It was love at first sight...

and 25 years later we fell in love again

when we discovered this beautiful monastery

in Belgium's smallest town 

a stone's throw away from Ypres.

An old dream...a new life.

The ideal place to relax and to enjoy yourself

at the beautiful hillside with many possibilities.

The three of us look forward to welcoming you

if you are looking for a peaceful stay!

Cycling in and around Messines and Ypres...a challenge?

The flat area north of the city,

A small anecdote...

During the First World War a

German corporal got injured in Belgium.

His name: Adolf Hitler.

He was treated for his wounds

in the crypt of St.Nicolas' Church.

Thus, the town was spared in

the Second World War when Hitler was

Chancellor of the German Empire.


Our passion for interior design

and heritage blends nicely

with our passion for cooking

and our wish to treat

our guests...
