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.

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.

Pleine nature, cadre idyllique et enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte "Café Abadie" situé dans un cadre idyllique entre mer et montage, bénéficie d'une vue imprenable. L'endroit parfait pour se ressourcer dans le calme et la sérénité.

Le temps était suspendu aux différentes balades et découvertes à faire dans les environs, des sorties "à la grande bleue", nous avons même pu pousser jusqu'au musée théâtre Dali à Figueras le temps d'une journée.

L'hôte de ces lieux, Fabienne, conviviale et sympathique, nous a transmis la clé de petits coins secrets, pour des baignades à proximité, paradisiaques et enchantées.

"L'apéro du jeudi soir" organisé par ses bons soins reste un moment de partage unique.

Merci Fabienne pour avoir restauré un lieu où il est encore possible de flâner et rêver, tu contribues à donner de la vie à ce village perché, plus près de étoiles, bravo à toi et longue continuation à "Pyrénées Mon Amour".

Joli gîte

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passés un très agréable séjour dans le gite Abadie au cœur du village de Felluns. Conforme au descriptif de l'annonce, nous avons trouvé un accueil très chaleureux de Fabienne qui a contribuée sans conteste, à la réussite de nos vacances. Très disponible, au petit soin pour nous, elle a su nous mettre à l'aise dès notre arrivée. Nous nous y sommes sentis comme à la maison. D'ailleurs, nous ne voulions plus repartir...tellement l'endroit est charmant... C'est vous dire! Pour ce qui est du logement, il est suffisamment spacieux pour 2. Très fonctionnel, il ne manque rien! si nous devions chercher un petite critique...nous aurions beaucoup de mal en trouver! donc un seul mot à dire...n’hésiter pas à louer ce lieu de villégiature qui est tout simplement, idéal pour ceux qui aiment les vacances au calme.

Féérie dans les Pyrénées

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très agréable dans ce gîte accueillant et très bien équipé. Une terrasse à 180° avec une vue magnifique sur le paysage, fait de ce lieu de vacances un endroit idéal pour se ressourcer !

Si vous êtes un lève tôt, vous pourrez peut-être même apercevoir quelques écureuils faisant leurs exercices du matin, ou des oiseaux se poser près de vous pour vous souhaiter un bon début de journée. ;)

De belles randonnées à faire aux alentours du village et dans la région… Tout comme nous, notre chienne a également beaucoup apprécié son séjour qui a été des plus agréables, grâce à Fabienne notre hôtesse, toujours aux petits soins pour ses invités.
