My family and I (five people in total) stayed in the wonderful Grandes Fontaines apartment for two weeks in early July, 2016. On the evening we arrived Wafa took a lot of time to ensure we felt welcomed and fully briefed on the facilities of the Gîte, and gave us some very useful information about Ferrette. Eric arrived a little later with a bottle of local wine to welcome us - a really wonderful warm gesture. Ferrette is about 25 minutes drive from Basel, or 20 minutes from Basel airport. The drive to Ferrette is beautiful, winding through a couple of small French villages and overlooking Basel in parts. Ferrette itself is the authentic small French village - very well stocked local supermarket, and two very good cafes. The Gîte is a fantastic building, with very beautifully preserved windows, flooring and décor. Both the adults and the kids in our group loved it all. Wafa and Eric are exceptional hosts.
