Welcome to ' Gîtes Rue du Château '

Anna & Ian would like to welcome you to Gites Rue Du Chateau, Ruffec. Having made the decision to change our lifestyle, we relocated from Norfolk, England, in April 2022, and are very much in the early days of establishing our home and holiday cottage rental business, here in Ruffec.


Situated in the grounds of what was once part of the old Chateau estate, we can offer a little haven of tranquillity; a place where you will be able to relax and feel at one with nature and at the same time, have fun and make those precious memories.


We have four cosy French cottages available for holiday rental all year round. Our site offers separate cottage rentals, with no more than two rented at any one time or as a whole site group booking, with exclusive use of the site's facilities. Especially ideal for larger family and friends bookings, when you would like to have separate accommodation but be on the same site. Gites Rue Du Chateau is a great place to have fun with friends and family.​ However, it is not an appropriate location for loud party gatherings.


The two and half acres of walled gardens and woodland offer plenty of space for some privacy and includes a beautiful stream running through the old lavoir (former wash house), woodland path, a lovely shallow mini pool, mini boules area, BBQs, outside kitchen and dining area, cosy fire pit corner and access to covered terraces.


Every day we now wake up to the sound of birdsong, running water and the toll of the local church bells in the distance.  Surprisingly peaceful, but within walking distance of a restaurant, bistro, bakeries, shops, beer warehouse and a local market. You can choose to stay on site or venture out and take part in one of the many local activities on offer, including, the Rejallant canoeing centre, cycle paths, adventure parks, local lake activities or visit a Chateau.


Owners, Anna & Ian, live on-site and will be available should you need anything during your stay. 

Please follow us on Facebook to see updates or message us if you have any questions.

Pool update for Summer 2023

Due to the very wet spring in France and the current high water table on our land, the pool maintenance company has been unable to carry out the necessary repairs to our in ground pool. However, we are pleased to say that we have, just in time for our summer bookings, now installed an above ground pool for the season. 


Izzy, May 2023 - VRBO
