Pretty French riverside town house for €189,000

Stunning character house for sale with secret garden in French "city of writing"

She had me at the heart🤍 adorned gate. The secret garden straight out of a children’s storybook (spread over 1/4 acre) is tucked between the rocky hillside and river. The character house oozes charm with unique features like octagon clay tile floors and exposed rock wall in one of the bathrooms. And of course it’s got my beloved exposed wood beams and vaulted rafters. Did I mention the views of the river and town are simply stunning? I seriously can’t get over this one — it ticks all the boxes and then some!

The Area

Montmorillon, known as the "City of Writing", is a charming town straddling the River Gartempe. It is a popular destination thanks to pretty river banks, Gothic bridge, old houses, monuments like the 12th-century Octagon and Notre-Dame church, and the medieval district of Brouard where bookshops and craft workshops abound. The town hosts a book fair every June on even years, and a writing and image fair in odd years. (Source:
