About the property

Built for couples ,Ideal for families,this unique house delivers country, luxury and charm.Pronounced Roo chocs,this fully self contained house is located in the Polish Hill River Region of the Clare Valley in South Australia.

Set on rural land and surrounded by native flora it provides a peaceful and authentic natural landscape with access to safe walking tracks that create the illusion of being far from civilization.

10 minutes from Clare and 4 minutes from the historic village of Mintaro it is centrally located to enjoy the flavours and colors of the Clare Valley.A perfect step off for lovers of fine food,wine and great companionship.

Our little house has been a labour of love and incorporates our focus on the environment, recycling and fun. With its domed roof, polished floorboards and modern amenities it is a statement in character and blending of the eras.

The luxurious queen bed on the mezzanine floor creates a cosy retreat.

The beautiful Mintaro Slate used in the outdoor dining area and the impressive slate table complete the link to the heritage town of Mintaro.

Full provisions and elegant touches create a peaceful and relaxing place to begin your journey of the beautiful Clare Valley.

We ask that ,because of its rural ,open setting that you leave your pets at home as the farm type fencing prevents us from being able to keep your pet safe.

The Hill Family have built and fashioned this unique house for people to grab a moment from their busy lives and enjoy our beautiful valley

We hope you will be left surprised and delighted by Ruciochs and thank you for considering staying with us .We think you will love it.

Beautiful spot.

  • 4 of 5

Had everything. Huge tv. Great country side.

Well located for clare region. Was a bit cold for winter.

My daughter is terrified of dogs and there is dogs next to this place they did venture over for a visit one was not so friendly. The owner was apologetic however, did scare the crap out of us.

Apart from that everything else was fantastic. Wine gifted was superb.

Shower was great.

Beds comfy. Place very clean.

Thanks recommend. 😁.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth. Thank you for taking time to remind us about our pets We are careful to keep the space free for our guests but during your visit I left the gate open. You are right never to trust a strange dog .My apologies particularly to your daughter. I will up grade the gate catch so future guests won't get the same visitor.Your other comments were very kind and we are pleased you were still able to have a good stay and to recommend us. Thank you Best regards Pat

Homely, spacious and clean with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This B & B is perfectly spacious for families and lovely and comfortable for couples on a romantic getaway. Special treats of chocolates and wine along with continental breakfast provisions make your stay inviting with most necessities provided. Very clean with lovely linen, close to all wineries and restaurants, highly recommended for a perfect stay near Clare.

Owner's Response: Hi Tracey. Thank you for taking the time to pen your encouraging review. Ruciochs is a surprise and we try our upmost to ensure it is clean and fresh every time. Nestled in the Polish Hill river area it is a perfect step off for Pikes and Paulett's wineries and a short drive to either Clare or Mintaro. I hope you revisit and get a chance to have a drink and meal at the revitalised Magpie and Stump hotel in Mintaro. Kind regards Pat

A perfect spot!

Such a great stay in a very comfy little house. Everything we needed, super clean and just disappointed that we couldn't stay longer. A very warm welcome from Pat and his wife, the dogs and pet sheep Lucy. We will be back!
