Further afield

Ruffec is on the TGV line to Paris and Bordeaux

Paris is only 2 hours and 10 minutes away on a non stop train.

Bordeaux and the Dordogne are also within easy reach.

The Loire is to our North and a great day out to explore a chateau or two.

The coast at La Rochelle and the beautiful Ile de Re are within easy reach for a day trip.

LaRochelle1

Valley des Singes, near Poitiers 40 mins

Oradour sur Glane (near Limoges)

Oradour2

The scene of a dreadful massacre on June 10th 1944

The entire village has been left as a monument to this atrocity and a  new village built alongside. The village can be visited free of charge but  the exhibition at extra cost is well worth it.
