Saint-Macaire : Michelin's recommendations
A medieval town quite close to Bordeaux. St Macaire has perhaps the charm but not the immobility of a picture postcard. Behind the restored balconies and façades of the old streets, the town is humming with life. The town gets its name from a saint of Greek origin, Makarios, who came here in the 5C. Its white wines are part of the côtes de Bordeaux St Macaire appellation contrôlée. There is a pleasant view of the town from Route de Sauveterre.

A few steps from the medieval city, this regional house is delightfully relaxed. It offers a shaded terrace and appetising market-fresh cuisine (roast guinea fowl with girolles, fruit cheesecake, etc). A few spacious rooms are available in the wing.
