A rich history
Before the domain became an hotel, the domain of Conques was like its name indicates … a prioress! The history goes back to 648, when saint Remacle, bishop of Maastricht, orders the construction of a monastery in Conques. In 1773, the prioress was offered to the monks of Orval, who made it a home of study and rest. Abandoned for years, the prioress was bought by the family De Naeyer in 1942. Renovated in 1963, Florimond and Simone De Naeyer made it a luxurious and warm establishment. An annex is built in 1990, next to the former prioress adding 8 additional rooms to the hostelry. In January 1996, the torch has passed to his son, Francis De Naeyer, who takes over the exploitation of the hostelry, helped by his wife and his son Jérome. The hostelry is completely renovated to meet the requirements of today. In 2016, after years of good and loyal service, the family draw its reverence and agrees a well deserved rest. The prioress was sold and the new team strives to perpetuate the tradition while breathing new wind into Conques prioress.
