eye muscles, also relaxes the mind. We know that standing on the terrace, you will be able to gaze at the horizon, smell the sun, hear the seagulls and we are also curious if you will see the sea. For that we will add another staircase, just one more for the heaven …

occurred at the end of the thirteenth century. The name ‘terram de Scheveninghe’ comes at the end of the 13th century
century for the first time in the chronicles, but it takes until the middle of the 14th century before there is mention of
a fishing village. In the following centuries, growth was limited to Keizerstraat and its immediate surroundings. Until
