People often ask us just where is Argenton sur Creuse?
Unlike Paris, Nice, Bordeaux, Lyon or Mont Saint-Michel, Argenton is off the beaten tourist track, nestled snuggly in the centre of France.
In fact, if you draw a square around all the outermost parts of France, Argenton is smack bang in the middle of this beautiful country (thanks Google Maps!):
It’s about 2 and a half hours south of Paris by train (take the SNCF intercity Paris-Limoges train which departs from Gare d’Austerlitz Paris) or 3 hours by car (the roads are great but allow plenty of euros for the tolls!):
Once you’ve passed Chateauroux (about 30km north), you’re almost there! (If travelling by rail, you may need to change trains here, although direct trains are available once or twice a day.)
Whether driving from the north or the south, take the A20 and exit 18 to Argenton S/C:
If you ever get the chance to visit you might just fall in love with the place…
