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 cottage is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The well appointed kitchen had all of the equipment we needed to cook breakfasts and dinners. We loved coming back to the peaceful cottage after a day of sightseeing. The serene view of vineyards and farms makes this cottage a perfect location base to explore local Bordeaux vineyards or take day trips to Dordogne Valley attractions. Caspian, Lulu, and Jeffery (the chocolate lab) were terrific hosts. We loved all of their recommendations for local markets, restaurants, and boulangerie. My husband wanted to stay another week so he can go to the night food market in Saint Foy again! We are still dreaming about the pastries and breads in the local boulangerie in Montcaret. Thank you, Caspian and Lulu, for a wonderful stay! Send our best to Jeffery.
