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.
