St-Jean is a village some 12 miles east of Brantome on the river Cole, and due to Napoleon's highway engineers, is a very easy village to miss.
What is apparently the main road goes straight to and over a relatively modern bridge, whereas a hundred yards or so to the side
there is a most charming village square with a little humpback packhorse bridge next to the mill which is the subject of this painting.
It has something of the atmosphere of a Cotswold village but as with many parts of France its anachronistic charm is giving way to
the many benefits of an affluent economy.

If you wish to visit the beautiful countryside and villages in the south west of France where Flint spent much of his time painting,
a beautiful holiday house in Dordogne view is to let throughout the year.
