Food & Eating

Group Retreats at St. Jean enjoy three wonderful meals each day including wine with dinner each evening.

One of the great beauties of St. Jean is that there are several places to eat communally and al fresco. The main balcony seats up to 12 guests and is situated beside the kitchen in the main house, ideal for breakfast, lunch or supper. Beside the lower courtyard there is an outside covered dining area which has a built in barbecue fireplace and tailored drapes to add ambience to a late-night supper.

At St. Jean we pride ourselves on our commitment to support local artisans and suppliers. This results in wonderful seasonal produce – from markets, Tarnaise farmers and vignerons – of the best quality.

We try, as far as possible, to be mindful of food allergies and will try and cater, where required, to vegetarian diets. We also cater, when requested, to detox juice and raw food options.

We support the growing ‘bio’ (organic) movement where possible and use vegetables from our very own kitchen garden whenever we can. St. Jean has the great good fortune to have its own clear spring water supply. For hundreds of years, the spring – called Foun de Loup, or Wolf spring – has been nurturing the inhabitants of St. Jean and that continues to this day. What you get is fresh, local water from our very own source.
