Why Saint-Jean?

The name “Saint-Jean” is explained by the fact that the estate has a Byzantine Chapel built in the 17th century, bearing the name of Saint-Jean the Baptist, preacher of the coming of Christ and protector of the shepherds.

To this day, the ruins of the Chapel are hidden behind bushes left voluntarily in the wild. The place is named after Saint John the Baptist, a major figure in Christianity and Islam.

Orthodox bells ringing

The days preceding the religious holiday of August 15th, it is possible to hear in the distance the ringing of some bell towers as well as the liturgical words of an Orthodox priest. The exceptional light is blessed by Saint John the Baptist and by the Gods.
