A little corner of paradise here on earth. Where dining is divine and the night's rest heavenly. No imposing entrance or red carpet awaits you here. Not a clue can tell you from street side that behind the centuries-old-frontage on Oude Houtlei lies an ancient monastery: PoortAckere. An oasis of peace, hidden away from the bustle of the city. Once inside you find yourself in a former nunnery whose history dates back as far as to 1278. The building and its interior that turned their back on the world for so many centuries now reveals its secrets to a few favored guests. The atmosphere is serene and restful, as befits an age-old neogothic building. Yet PoortAckere retains its unique character, as a medieval monastery with its own history.
