Ruciochs is a unique and quirky retreat with a design focus on quintessentially Australian materials - timber and corrugated iron. The creamy corrugated exterior creates sleek lines while the application of uncoated and curved sheeting inside results in a wonderful impression of a luxury barn, with curved ceiling above a cosy mezzanine sleeping loft. Timber floors emit the same golden hues of hay and add to the ambience of this impressive character building. Timber features grandly in the recycled entrance door while great slabs of slate combine with elegance in the outdoor entertainment area in both the paving and the table design. A modern luxury bath awaits - just add bubbles from the selection of luxury amenities. Fully self contained, Ruciochs is set on rural land with natural bushland vistas and although only 10 minutes from Clare and just 4 minutes from the historic village of Mintaro, it creates a wonderful sense of tranquil isolation.

Located in the Polish Hill Region of the Clare Valley in South Australia, Ruciochs has immediate access to safe walking routes. Nearby Montaro is a charming historic town with gorgeous and stately stone and slate buildings and ruins. There are plenty of hamlets and wineries to explore in this region, the Clare Valley is one of Australia's premium wine producing areas, internationally renowned for the quality of its Riesling wines, and a wine trail that winds for 35 km through hill and dale, with many gourmet delights to discover and savour.


Ruciochs has one queen size bedroom upstairs in a sleeping loft, and a downstairs twin room with two singles. It has a fully appointed kitchen and dining area and comfortable lounge room where you can relax after a day exploring the region. Soak away your cares in the bathtub, there's a separate shower as well, and luxury amenities. Reverse cycle airconditioning and a ceiling fan are provided, and there are breakfast provisions for you to enjoy.
