About the property

Pyrénées mon Amour

Small piece of heaven, far away from stress, in the hinterland of Perpignan, between Mediterranean Sea, Upper Pyrenees and the Cathars’ country.

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.

Discover the Fenouillèdes, an authentic and wild Mediterranean region. At a walking distance from the cottage, you can see the vineyard, the garrigue, dolmens, a Roman aqueduct, the lake of Caramany, ruins of medieval castle, magnificent panoramas.

A few minutes by car, you can visit exceptional sites such as: the Galamus gorges, the Synclinal of Saint-Paul, discover the rich heritage of the Fenouillèdes (Cathars’ castles, Romane’s churches …). Immerse yourself in the prehistory of humanity with Tautavel’s museum , visit the numerous wine cellars and taste the wines of the region (Côtes du Roussillon, Maury …).

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 cottage 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.

Pure nature

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place, in the middle of nature. It is quite far from everything touristic but this is pure nature with millions of wild flowers, butterflies, wildlife, birds ...

The gite is well equipped with a new kitchen and a terrace at our bedroom with a splendid view on the environment (ideal place for reading). Fabienne provided nice tips for walks and all the required detailed maps. We brought our dog with us and that was not a problem although there was no garden. We were sometimes visited by friendly dogs from the neighbourhood.😃

Genial Gracias por todo

  • 5 of 5

Quiero agradecer a la dueña de la Casa Fabi, que fue una maravillosa anfitriona de nuestras vacaciones. Las habitaciones son magnificas el baño todo muy limpio y ordenado con un estilo inigualable diseñado por ella. Fui allí con amigos a pasar unos días muy recomendable el aire la vista a los castillos que conocimos y sin olvidar ni desmerecer todo el enoturismo y la cantidad de bodegas que hay para recorrer.

La tranquilidad que puede brindar ese lugar fantástico siendo fácil llegar a una cuidad como Perpignan. .

desde Uruguay Sudamérica, recomiendo y promociono este lugar.
