About the property

Pyrénées mon Amour

Pyrénées mon Amour is made of 4 comfy cottages fully renovated. The decoration and furnitures are stylish, they mix classical and modern design but respect the spirit of the houses.

Each cottage is independent, has its own entrance and a terrace with an amazing view on French « garrigue ».

Cottages were built in promontory on a rock located in Felluns, small picturesque village of 50 inhabitants. The upper part of the cottage open on the charming Church’s place which dates back to the XIIth century. You can move freely and let children play in the whole village, in total safety, because there is no roads.

About Fabienne Wetterwald

An Alsatian origin, former primary school teacher and lifeguard, I got engrossed in this region. After a very successful career, I wanted to develop a new project that would give me the opportunity to use all my skills and pursue all my passions. I love the nature, history and all types of arts including architecture and decoration. I also love writing and I published several poetry collections. I also love sports and hiking. I studied archaeology, art history and multimedia. I love meeting people and share my discoveries. I live on site and I will be delighted to welcome you.

Fabienne Wetterwald purchased this house in 2014

Why Fabienne Wetterwald chose Fenouilledes

My wish is to offer you serene holidays full of nice activities. I would like to make you discover this beautiful part of France, not well known and called Fenouillèdes. It is important to me to share with you my passion for this authentic region, far from mass tourism. My plan is to develop high quality service in respect of the environnement and a form of tourism based on cultural exchange. I want to give meaning to your holidays. I will look after your comfort and your tranquility and wish to share with you my historical and geographical knowledge of this part of France.

I live next-door, in an other cottage and I will be at your disposal during your stay. Starting from May/June, I will organise every week a french aperitif to welcome the guests. It’s always very friendly! Guests can order a basket of organic vegetables before arriving. Maps and hiking books are available. Price reduction are possible for certain activities in the region (Canyoning, horse riding, Via Ferrata, rafting). Felluns’ cave and the 12th century church can also be visited on request.

Séjour exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour exceptionnel dans le gite de Fabienne .

Tout était comme sur la description et même mieux .Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le coin du feu après une des nombreuses balades proches du gite , le calme et les repas au soleil en décembre sur la terrasse .

C'est avec plaisir que nous reviendrons peut être en été .

  • 5 of 5

Relax, enjoy nature in this absolutely paceful place. In winter, you can sit in front of a fire place. Fabbienne is a very charm host. We reccomend her place at those who are looking for silence and nature. Thanks Fabbienne!

wunderschöner und toller Urlaub in Südfrankreich

  • 5 of 5

Der Ort Felluns ist ein sehr idyllisches und ruhiges Plätzchen am Fuße der Pyrenäen gelegen mit zahlreiche Möglichkeiten die wunderschöne Landschaft in Südfrankreich für sich zu entdecken. Wir waren mit der Unterkunft sehr zufrieden und hatten überhaupt keine Beanstandungen. Die Kontaktperson ist sehr nett und kennt sich sehr gut mit der Gegend und den möglichen Freizeitangeboten rund um Felluns aus. Langweilig wurde es uns da nie. Der Strand ist etwa 50 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt.

Wer also Sonne, Wärme, Ruhe und relaxed die Füße auf der Dachterrasse ausstrecken und dabei den tollen Ausblick auf die schönen Berge und die Landschaft genießen will, ist hier genau richtig.

Komme immer wieder gerne zurück und kann es jedem empfehlen.

Grüsse Simon

Pyrénées notre amour😜

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte "la bergerie" est vraiment idéal pour 6 personnes.

La propriétaire "Fabienne" est d'une grande gentillesse et d'une grande disponibilité notamment pour nous faire découvrir cette magnifique région. Le gîte est idéalement placé pour emtreprendre des visites.

Le village est parfait pour des enfants qui peuvent jouer sur la place de l'église et dans le reste du village en toute sécurité et profiter des enfants de Fellunsqui sont très accueillants.

Nos enfants ont dit que c'étaient les meilleures vacances de leur vie.

Superbes vacances dans un endroit très calme

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé deux très chouettes semaines dans ce tout petit village, au centre d'une très belle région. Le gîte correspondait au descriptif et aux photos. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Fabienne, la propriétaire, qui nous a également fourni de précieux conseils et informations. Il y a plein de visites et d'activités possibles à des distances très raisonnables, et c'est sans le moindre doute que je recommande cette location !
