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.

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

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.😃
