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 accommodation itself is beautiful; classic in style, clean, comfortable beds and we had everything provided that we could possibly need. Although the weather was cold (we visited in January!) the gite was nice and cozy with a log fire and the owners even put electric blankets in the beds which was a thoughtful touch. The grounds are gorgeous and the family is lovely :) Thanks Karen, Rich, Arabella and Julia for a fantastic time!

As a group of ten we could ate outdoors nearly every night in the summer house - we drank wine while the kids battled it out for table tennis champ. Plenty of loungers and a lovely warm pool during the day meant that we didn't venture out much. We did go on a couple of walks across the fields and through the forest and in to the village close by for bread and a coffee every morning. The town of St Foy is lovely and the huge market on Saturday morning was great fun. Kids and adults like had a great time, adults especially enjoying long lie ins as a result of the shutters! Lovely.
