Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Authentic and wonderful Alsace

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful apartment in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

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

ausgezeichnete Wohnung, schöne Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die geräumige Wohnung liegt in einem schönen alten Gebäude und ist sehr geschmackvoll und komfortabel eingerichtet, auch in Kleinigkeiten fehlt es nichts. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Ferrette ist ein hübsches Dorf, gute Bäckereien und ein Supermarkt sind vor Ort. Man kann von dort aus leicht Ausflüge in den Jura oder auch nach Basel mit seinen spannenden Museen unternehmen (knapp 30 Min. entfernt). Unseren Kids haben besonders die nahen Burgruinen sowie die Basler Papiermühle gefallen. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
