Venice of the Loire Valley

Argenton sur Creuse is a small, friendly town in the south of the Centre-Val-de-Loire. Some have compared this adorable rural town to Italy's Venice, due its picturesque placement along the banks of the River Creuse. Although for others, Argenton sur Creuse is far cleaner and more beautiful than Venice. A large amount of renovation work has also made Argenton sur Creuse a desirable place to live, with quite a few English moving into the area.

A pleasant surprise

Its winding cobbled lanes around its thriving marketplace make this town livelier than many expect from the heart of rural France. Its Thursday and Saturday markets are not to be missed, though get up early as much will have gone by midday! Meanwhile the town's old mediaeval houses have been well preserved, providing much to look at while exploring the town's streets.

Facilities on offer
