Complete information

Le Canard au Parapluie Rouge is a charming & cozy pet friendly full service B&B. An excellent location, just minutes from Argenton sur creuse at exit 19 Celon off the A20 and situated in the heart of the Indre & Limousin Regions. Le Canard is warmly decorated with en-suite bedrooms, an expansive garden & plunge pool. All meals are home cooked and often with veggies from our kitchen garden & free-range eggs from our happy hens! We are the perfect stopover or stay awhile and enjoy the full benefits of our hospitality!

Le Canard au Parapluie Rouge (the duck with a red umbrella!)dates to as early as the 17th century with additions to the main house during the 18th & 19th centuries. During Le Canard's hey day it was a small hotel named L’Hotel de la Gare and accommodated overnight passengers from the near by rail line. Through out the years Le Canard has provided a warm and inviting shelter for many a traveler. Sadly the station house has closed, however the occasional train whizzes by as a reminder of the early days at Le Canard! Today, the property has been completely updated with all modern conveniences. You will find the style of Le Canard comfortable mix of eclectic furnishings from around the world creating a warm & welcoming ambiance.

Our bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, each with an en-suite bath or shower and offer views of the garden. The warm and inviting decor is unique to each bedroom and there are plenty of pillows and snuggle up bedding! Clock radios, hairdryers & bottled water are just some of the amenities we offer.

We would love for you to join us for dinner. Generally during the summer & autumn months we put on a BBQ which offers a variety of salads, veggies & meats-cheese & desert, other nights we offer a mix of French, English & American cuisines. Weather permitting, evening meals are served "Al Fresco" style in the garden. We can easily accommodate any dislikes, dietary needs or vegetarian.
