Make A Holiday Rental Gite in Ruch, France, Your Home Away From Home

If you fancy taking a break in an area that is far away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life, but still within striking distance of a number of historic towns and cities, holidays in Ruch are likely to appeal to you very strongly! The settlement of Ruch is situated in the Gironde department; this is on Aquitaine, in south-western France. Not only is Ruch ideal for getting out and exploring the department of Gironde, your self catering accommodation in the area will also be situated very close to the border with Dordogne.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ruch, France

Visitors on their holidays in Ruch have the beautiful Dordogne river situated a short drive to the north. Here you can explore the beautiful countryside which is often dominated by some truly awesome chateaux. Enjoy a boat ride along the river itself and catch a glimpse of the landscape from an entirely different perspective. You can also enjoy canoeing on the river and there are some areas that have been converted to proper beaches - offering family-safe swimming. Other popular activities to participate in whilst in the area include cycling, horse riding, tennis, fishing and there are a few good golf courses to be found in Gironde and neighbouring Dordogne.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Ruch, France

If you can bear to prise yourself away from the cosy and comfortable self catering accommodation in Ruch, there are actually a good number of attractions to enjoy throughout the area. If you head east, you will soon reach the historically-important city of Bergerac. It is a good idea to aim for the Old Town, as this is where you will find the majority of the best attractions. Heading west will bring you to the large city of Bordeaux, which may prove to be a little bit of a culture shock, after the peace and tranquillity you have become accustomed to in Ruch. A further short journey west will then bring you to the Atlantic coast. For the best and safest chances to enjoy swimming with the younger members of your group, it is a good idea to head for the seaside resorts around the Bassin d’Arcachon. This is a naturally-protected bay from the larger waves of the exposed Atlantic.

The average daytime temperature in July or August is around the mid- to high-twenties degrees Celsius.

This part of Aquitaine receives an average rainfall of around 22 inches per year.

Travel to Ruch, France

The nearest and most convenient airport for your holidays in Ruch will be Bordeaux-Merignac Airport (BOD), which is only around an hour and a half’s drive away from the self catering accommodation in the area.

Amazing property

5 of 5
The property had everything that we were looking for. Booking was very easy and the owners were more than helpful to ensure our time spent there went without any glitches. The house has everything that is stated in the listing, great heating (winter holiday), fantastic WiFi and great television systems for those relaxing evenings in front of a (huge) open fire. Ideally situated and close enough to local villages and towns. The property is set in an amazing elevated location with wonderful views of vineyards and the local surrounding countryside. My wife and I spent a whole month over the Christmas festive season at the property, so unfortunately didn't get the opportunity to experience the wonderful private swimming pool due to the winter climate. Although, I imagine it would be fantastic in the summer months. If you are looking to stay in a traditional French property with open wooden beams and superb surroundings then I would highly recommend this property to anyone. The historic town of Duras is roughly 7km away (as the crows fly) and here you can find everything you require such as; Bars, shops and restaurants. Bergerac is roughly 1 hours drive from the property, which has great shops and restaurants - a visit is highly recommended. In short, a wonderful month spent in a fantastic house with great surroundings. We would most certainly rent this property again in the future. Shirley and Bill we thank you. Steve and Jenny x

Exceeded our expectations by a mile!

5 of 5
The 12 days we spent at Sonia and Saul's beautiful home in Sept & Oct were amazing. The property is a dream property and the owners have obviously put a lot of thought, planning and love into their restoration of this venerable farmhouse. They saved the 19th century character of the farmhouse and made it luxurious by 21st century standards. The kitchen served us so well and the summer house in the back was a perfect place for an early evening barbecue dinner, chandelier and all. We spent hours in the back yard with a glass of wine and snacks from the local markets in a second wonderful outdoor patio setting. The pictures on the listing are all spot on. The house is so well equipped and wants for nothing to prepare wonderful meals or simply enjoy the fabulous local wines with equally wonderful charcuterie on the patio. The location is superior allowing easy access by rental car to the city of Bordeaux, the Medoc, and of course the fascinating village of St. Emilion. With a rental car it was an easy day trip drive also to the fascinating prehistoric cave paintings of Lascaux. So much to do and so little time... but we spent as much time as we could in this house because it is spacious, has all the creature comforts one could possibly need and is, in a word... comfortable. We had 6 people there at once but it could easily comfortably accommodate 8-10 guests. Sonia was available for any questions and provided great written information on the local area to optimize our time. For those who have the time and/or the need, the wi-fi is very good as well. Frankly we had too much else to do so didn't spend much time on devices. We had good friends who referred us to this property and we intend to do the same with others. Try it and you will love it!!
