Welcome to the beautiful Chateau Saint Jean. This exceptional chateau renta was constructed in 1820 by the current owner’s family and embodies everything a romantic French chateau should; elegant décor, awe inspiring towers and turrets and intricate stone masonry. It is located in a mature woodland setting with beautiful views to the east across the castles lawns, the local village and the 10 hectares of private parkland.

Chateau Saint Jean has an elegant and spacious interior and accommodates 13 guests in 7 luxurious bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The ground floor is home to a modern kitchen, a spacious living room, the dining room and a charming salon.

Outdoors is a sizable heated swimming pool with pool house and a terrace with barbecue, perfect for al fresco dining on long summer evenings. The local village of Saint Jean is a just short, pleasant stroll from the chateau. 4 miles away is the larger town of Loches, rated one of the most magnificent medieval towns in France, which offers plenty of shops, restaurants, sights, music & theatrical events.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
