Mansion house housing a Gite for 1 to 4 people in Ferrette with porch and small garden. Recently renovated, the small Gite des Fontaines opened in the summer 2011. Its architecture, equipment, comfort, interior decoration and location make it a luxury guest house.
we spent our family/friends summer vacation in ferrette, france, at "la maison des fontaines".
the little town of ferrette is picturesque and beautiful, like from a fairy tale.
the apartment we rented at "la maison des fontaines" was just amazing! perfectly equipped with a full kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom with double sink, shower and separate tub, and an extra bathroom with just the toilet and a sink. one of the couches in the living room could be turned into a bed that sleeps two. as we were traveling with a baby, we highly appreciated that there was a baby bed, a high chair and a changing unit at our disposal.
the apartment furniture and equipment were brandnew, the interior was absolutely perfectly arranged with great taste, lots of detail and personal touch.
"la grande salle" on the ground floor level was just as welcoming and comfortable. a good place to hang out with the whole group on a rainy day, or in the evenings.
wifi internet connection is also available.
the house is in a cute little street just below the the castle, so when we looked out of our living-room and bedroom windows, we saw the castle on the hill right above. fairy tale-like!!
also, the surroundings of the house are perfect and safe for kids to run free and play.
the town has a couple shops, restaurants, a post office and a big supermarket to meet all needs. people are very friendly and welcoming. it's helpful when you speak some french, but quite a few of the people we met in town also spoke german.
the owners of the house are very friendly, helpful and approachable at all times.
i would go back to ferrette anytime! it was a wonderful vacation in a lovely and peaceful place.
Séjour du Juillet 2012 - voyage en famille
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.
We had a wonderful family holiday in this beautiful apartment. The setting was very lovely - a beautiful village surrounded by great countryside. The apartment was beautifully presented and had everything we needed. The owner was on hand to welcome us and help us with ideas for excursions. We enjoyed the many local walks, the views from the castle and the nearby towns, markets and sights.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this gite
The place is beautiful!!! The owners are really nice, friendly and caring. They treat you like family and are always there for you if you need anything. Love the place and would not stay anywhere else when visiting France.

trés bonne Location;
Nous n 'avons pas été déçu lors de notre séjour dans ce très beau gîte. Nous avons très apprécié une excellente literie et le calme favorisant un très bon repos. Toute l'infrastructure est mise à notre disposition pour le bon déroulement du séjour, vaisselle etc . La documentation sur la région est suffisante .Il y a pas mal de très bons restaurants avec un rapport qualité/prix intéressant.
Noël dans cette région du sud Alsace est aussi merveilleux par la décoration superbe des maisons typiques. A voir absolument .
Nous sommes certains que l'été, tout doit être également très agréable.
Les propriétaires très sympas et nous recommandons bien entendu leur gîte.
