About Marie-Louise Dillinger
Globe-trotters and multilingual, we have lived and worked for long years in South-East Asia and in Africa, before coming back to the Alsace region of our ancestors, where our four sons have grown up.
Marie-Louise Dillinger purchased this House in 1995
Why Marie-Louise Dillinger chose Ingwiller
The acquisition of this mill, which dates from the 16th century and was erected by the Counts of Hanau Lichtenberg, was an act of emotional response 20 years ago, despite its dilapidated state at the time. The restoration has been a long adventure, difficult but very beautiful all the same (the “mill” part with the machinery of the time has not yet been restored). Our aim was to find a place of peace and quiet, amidst the green and undulating countryside, without any immediate neighbours but still sufficiently close to a small town with all the shops we needed, schools, railway station, etc. This has enabled us to bring our family life and professional career together in harmony. Our four sons, now young adults, have all chosen to pursue their professional careers and private lives far from Alsace, and that is why we are so pleased now to welcome groups of friends or families who, over a weekend or on a longer holiday, continue to keep this place alive, a place which, throughout its long history, has always been a place of meetings, encounters, festivities, and simply the joy of living!
What makes this House unique
This is an extraordinary country residence which has been transformed from a century old water mill with 2 trout inhabited rivers running through the property with fruit trees, meadows and woodland. It offers all modern comforts whilst retaining charm and authenticity. It has been restored using only high quality materials with full attention to details. .

Heaven in Alsace!
What a great place -- everything was perfect: the common areas including the garden, the bed rooms, the environs, and the hosts. Highly recommended!
An exceptional retreat!
We spent a wonderful week here with friends. The home and property are absolutely beautiful! Owners Marie-Louise and Philippe have invested great loving care into making this the perfect vacation home. The house and kitchen are fully equipped with many amenities for a very comfortable stay, and easy cooking and entertaining for a large group. Our children loved playing in the streams on the grounds, and also enjoyed the ping-pong table and games room. Walking and hiking trails in the area are well marked. The convenience to Strasbourg and other towns & historic sites/castles made it easy to take fun day trips. There is quick access to a large grocery store, yet the property truly sits in a very quiet, scenic area surrounded by nature. We had the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure.
The multi-lingual owners are also very kind and interesting people. We had the pleasure of visiting with them for one evening and thoroughly enjoyed their company & stories! It would have been lovely to spend more time with them, but they are very respectful of the privacy of guests - so while they also live on the property and make themselves easily available for questions or needs, they were rarely seen.
One notice: It is useful to know the layout of the rooms. There are two large 'master bedrooms' each with a private bathroom on the second floor (these have small showers). On the third floor are the remaining six bedrooms and only one full bathroom. Here at least the toilet is in a separate room from the bathtub and shower, but six double rooms do share one bathroom on the third floor. The remaining shower and 2 toilets are on the ground floor.
I highly recommend this fabulous vacation home for large families or groups of close friends! We will gladly return.
a wonderful stay in beautiful house
We stayed in the house 6 nights, we were 8 adults and 5 children and we were their for holiday.the house owners were really really nice and kind, when we arrived they showed us the house and let us know how things works and gave us their numbers so we can contact them whenever need anything!
They gave us the permission to use everything in the house even the food in the house ( we have used some sugar for the tea and sirop for the pancake ) we felt as living at home.
the pictures here are the same in real life.
The house is very clean and big enough for 4 small families or even more!
towels and paper are available in bathrooms and there is a laundry room to take care of your clothes! also there is nice piano for how care.
The garden is super nice with 2 horses and the green space outside the house even you can see some cows beside the house everyday!
There is a big supermarket near the house with 5 mins driving!
Even it is nice to stay a day or days in the house without moving elsewhere because it has activities such as ( ping pong, cycling and the lovely garden to have your BBQ ).
The only disadvantage of the house is when you want to go out to visit other cities ( we were living in the border of france and we were driving to Germany to visit places and cities it took us a little while reaching there)
However, The house is great but the owners are greater ;)
for me i'm thinking now to stay there again and again
i loved this house and the owners too

Eine alte Mühle liebevoll restauriert und zum Feiern hervorragend geeignet
Anlässlich unserer Feier zum 60. Geburtstag haben wir mit unseren Freunden eine wunderschöne Zeit in diesem Haus verbracht. Alle Zimmer sind originell und mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestattet, die im ganzen Haus verteilten Kunstgegenstände widerspiegeln welterfahrene und engagierte Gastgeber. Der runde Tisch im Wohnzimmer lädt zu interessanten Gesprächen ein, in der hervorragend ausgestatteten Küche macht es Freude ein Fest im großzügigen Partyraum vorzubereiten. Architektonisch kann man ein historisch wertvolles Anwesen nicht besser restaurieren. Die gepflegten Außenanlagen strahlen tagsüber Wohlfühlatmosphäre aus, am späten Abend kann man den Sternenhimmel mit der Milchstraße bewundern. Mit einer Wanderung zum nahegelegenen Chateau Lichtenberg haben wir uns auf das Fest eingestimmt. Wir bedanken uns bei den Gastgebern, kommen gerne wieder und empfehlen dieses Anwesen uneingeschränkt weiter, Anna und Bernhard
