We stayed 3 nights here over the bank holiday weekend. Le Coudray-Macouard is a pretty little village about 5km south of Saumur, very easy to find although you do definitely need a car. Our accommodation was a lovely large room, spotless, and with our own french doors out to the pretty little garden courtyard, with off-street parking. The building is built into old tufa caves - beautifully renovated and with all mod-cons (plenty of plugs, wifi, modern bathroom fittings) - and the bathroom is actually in the cave! It's a bit quirky but we found it a wonderful stay. We slept the best we had in ages - it's such a quiet location and the advantage of being in a cave is it is very dark! The proprietor is a lovely, friendly lady who went out of her way to provide us with local information and suggestions of what to do (and who speaks some English)... and the breakfasts were really delicious - and served outside in the garden weather permitting! We would definitely recommend this as a relaxing, authentic experience if you are the sort of people who like something a bit different, as a base for exploring the Saumur area. It's also close to bike routes, and plenty of vineyards and chateaux close by.
