Saint-Macaire was our base for the first week. We stayed in an "appart-hotel" called "Les Tilleuls" This turned out to be quite comfortable and practical. A studio above the restaurant- which was the main business of the establishment- looking out onto the courtyard. The village has all the old stone walls, paved streets etc that I was hoping for. The town extends beyond the old walls and has basic shops, a few eating places.
