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

Felluns is a wonderful place where are mixed all the ingredients of a peaceful and rich life. The architectural construction in which is located the holiday cottage is composed of the 3 oldest houses of the village. They are built on rocks. 4 holiday cottages have already been renovated (former sheepfold, former forge, former café and troglodyte area). I wanted to preserve the atmosphere of this place to let my guests discover this rich region and come recharge their batteries there.

What makes this cottage unique

Authenticity, quietness and comfort. Label Gîtes de France 3 épis. Between sea and mountain. Wonderful views of the landscape of the garigue. Preserved setting, diversity of landscapes, beauty of the sites, breathtaking panoramas, diversity of the fauna and flora, vineyard, wild nature, Mediterranean climate and contrasted land.

Warm welcome, conviviality, temperament of Southern people, local feasts, cultural events, arts and crafts and local producers. Sports in the middle of nature, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, canyoning and activities for adults and children. Green tourism, responsible tourism, environment friendly, organic culture and spring water.

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.
