We found this a very relaxing place. With a mill stream all around. Breakfast was lovely. The evening meal rather ordinary. John and Liam are delightful hosts and very friendly. A delightful stopover. Both are bilingual. Always keen to please.

We stayed in lots of B&Bs in our 2 and a half week jaunt around France but this one sticks out in our memory. As the previous reviewers have commented, John and Liam are great hosts and really cannot do enough for you. We opted for the Table d'hote they offer as we had been driving all day and didn't...

We have been going to the Moulin St Jean for years. It is an enchanting place – an ancient mill on the river Indre now converted to a delightful chambres d’hotes. John and his son Liam are lovely hosts –nothing is too much trouble for them – with a good wine cellar sourced from their extensive local knowledge of Loire... More

We had an extraordinary and relaxing time here. It was the perfect combination of rustic and upscale....Genuine. The inn keepers were gracious and kind and gave us great recommendations on places to visit. You should definitely take advantage of their dinners. The food is amazing and it was so nice to relax, eat, drink, and not have to worry about... More

We enjoyed a wonderful welcome and incredible dining here...just one night was enough to feel like we had new friends. This place is evolving from the near ruin I hear it was a few years ago. With a few more touches to the garden all will be perfect! Unique to sleep with the sound of water cascading outside your window.... More

This is a wonderful location, whether for a stay on the Loire valley or as a stopover en route south or north. The welcome is genuine, the property charming, and John, Liam and Bernadette are the perfect hosts for a relaxed stay, including provision of wholesome evening meals if required. We had a great 4 days here, using it as... More

We like to break our journey North to the ferry and I don't think we'll ever want to stay anywhere else again but with John and Liam at the Moulin. And it must be a great place to stay for a few days. Loches is delightful and so much of the Loire/Cher valley is so close. The mill and garden... More

We spent 3 nights with John, aided by his family, at the Moulin St Jean and they were the highlight of our fortnight in France. The setting is fabulous and really peaceful. The atmosphere is laid back but the warmth of the welcome, the friendliness and service were outstanding. We ate there each night and enjoyed John's wonderful cooking and... More

What a lucky find to end up staying at the watermill at St Jean just outside Loches. Right from the start John and Liam his son, made us welcome. Rather than go out for dinner we were able to have a very pleasant evening by the river. We booked in for dinner with them the next night - wich we... More
