Le Canard au Parapluie Rouge, or theparapluie B&B logo “Duck with red umbrella” has a good start with a memorable name for a B&B – sounds a bit more exciting than the Hotel de la Gare (Station Hotel) which was its original name. Martin & Kathy Missen have been running this welcoming B&B for more than 10 years.

Situated just south of Argenton-sur-Creuse (36 Indre, Centre-Val de Loire) and just off the A20 autoroute about 200 miles south of Paris, this could make an ideal stop-over en route to or from the Dordogne, the Lot and Toulouse – and tends to be one of those areas that many of us hurtle through (especially with the new A20 Autoroute “l’Occitaine”) on our way south or north.
Argenton-sur-Creuse is known as the “Venice of the Berry” (a former province of Central France) is a delightful spot on the River Creuse with medieval streets and chateau in the middle of an unspoilt area of France.The quiet and pretty small village of Celon is a few kilometres south.
Le Canard au Parapluie Rouge is a lovely period country home situated on three and half acres of grounds and gardens. …. Now the property has been completely updated with all modern conveniences and offers several en-suite bedrooms. You will find the style of Le Canard a delightful mix of eclectic furnishings from around the world creating a very cozy & welcoming ambiance.”

All 5 bedrooms have an individual style of decor and offer views of the expansive garden. Cozy and filled with home-away-from-home comforts. Perfect for the overnight respite or stay a bit longer and enjoy the full benefits of your hosts’ hospitality. Snuggle-up bedding,  alarm clock-radio, hair dryer and bottled water are standard amenities. And English is expected!

There is a summer plunge pool
