You will feel as if you are leaving the world behind you. As you make your way through the fields and along our drive, the wheat coloured facade of this retreat will appear before you.

Within the cloisters of the convent there is a large lawn. When the sun sets, we light lanterns, while fireflies flit among the rose bushes.
             
 
T H E   R O O M S
Cool in summer and warm in winter with the open fire lit. The flames throw light onto the ancient stone walls.
   
T H E   P A R K
You might spot a hare running through the undergrowth or a grey heron majestically taking off into the sky. There are also deliciously sweet wild blackberries.
             
 
W I N T E R   W E D D I N G S
What a wonderful experience to welcome your guests around the fireplace.

The tables can be arranged in the middle of the woods to create an enchanted fairy tale atmosphere. Just like a Magritte painting.

This small, rustic space is a continuation of the lawn.
   
T H E   P A T I O
An open-air space. There was once a ceiling where now you can see the sky; where monks once slept you can now hear crickets and cicadas, see and smell lavender and strawflower.

You have to search for this garden, which is hidden behind the walls of an ancient former chapel. There you will find the pure and simple aromas of marjoram, chives and thyme.
   
T H E   C L O I S T E R S
With light blue shadows on the white walls, arches and columns, which have been warmed by the sun’s rays for centuries.
             
 
T H E   B R I D E' S    R O O M
A room just for her.
   
T H E   M O N K S '    
C E L L A R
Candlelight creates special effects on the rough surface of the ancient plastered walls.
             
 
E M O T I O N S
A certain atmosphere that has built up over the years, slight imperfections, simplicity and a subtle, seemingly casual attention to detail.
   
F L O W E R S   a n d
T A B L E   S E T T I N G S
Colours, fragrances and lights on the table.
               
 
T H E   C H U R C H
A little chapel that overlooks the fields.
     
T H E   F L O W E R' S
G A R D E N
Roses, lavender, lemon balm, strawflower, jasmine, mint, and more roses. When the yucca flowers, great white pyramids of flowers appear.
             
 
E V E N T S
When the old convent comes alive with music and lights.
   
T H E   L A K E
Hidden in the heart of the forest, the lake. An oasis of peace for the animals of the park.
             
 
D E T A I L S
Tableau de marriage, sweets and
other small things .
