The surrounding area of Ensenada has a fascinating history, and has over the centuries withstood storms, floods and occupation.
Around 1654 a wooden mill was built on the site next to the old granary. In 1812, under the regime of Napoleon, the mill was forced to be sold as the owner, Isaac Lijnbaert, was in considerable debt. At that time, burning candles were used for this. Before a candle went out, one was allowed to submit an offer.
Modern comfort in every room/suite, subtly combined with authentic building materials. Excellent facilities in a rural setting. As is typical of old buildings, the rooms are warm and snug in the winter, and cool in the summer. Each retreat has its own front door; in the summer, soak up the sun from your own private terrace. The spacious - and heated - swimming pool is within easy reach. Nature lovers can enjoy the natural splendours from one of the many outdoor terraces along the Molenkreek millpond.
