Welcome to the beautiful Château Saint Jean. This exceptional château rental was constructed in 1820 by the current owner’s family and embodies everything a romantic French château 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.

Château Saint Jean has an elegant and spacious interior and accommodates 13 guests across seven pretty bedrooms and five bathrooms. The ground floor is home to a traditional kitchen, a charming living and drawing room, the dining area and a TV room.

Outdoors is a sizeable heated swimming pool with pool house and a terrace with barbecue, perfect for al-fresco dining on long summer evenings. The local village and a restaurant are a just short, pleasant stroll from the château. 6km 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.
