Aarle-Rixtel is a village in the Dutch municipality of Laarbeek in North Brabant. It lies about 4 km north of Helmond. Since the municipal reorganization of 1968 the castle Croy is part of Aarle-Rixtel.

Until the municipal reorganization of 1997, Aarle-Rixtel was a separate municipality.

The spoken language is Peellands (an East Brabantian dialect, which is very similar to Standard Dutch).
