A property of agricultural origin, owned by the family of a former maritime pilot of the Suez Canal, a family from the village of Lourdas.
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.
The Saint-Jean estate has several agricultural platters arranged in terraces.
The olive trees of Villa Saint-Jean produce high quality extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil.
Visitors will be able to test the estate oil if they wish.
A flock of sheep is noticeable in spring and fall. After Easter, the shepherds take the animals on transhumance to the adjacent hill.
