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.

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.

Magnifique endroit

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique endroit. Accueil chaleureux de Fabienne qui propose des logements très intéressants niveau qualité/prix. L'infrastructure est en bon état et propre. Le lieu est calme et n'est finalement pas si éloigné des différentes activités possibles dans la région. De plus, la vue du balcon Café Abadie est superbe. Nous sommes un couple suisse avec 2 enfants et recommandons vivement un séjour dans un gîte "Pyrénées Mon Amour" :-)

Tellement bien qu'on a regretté de partir!

  • 5 of 5

Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison (mais avec une meilleure vue) dans le Café Abadie! Gîte super propre, tout confort, vue magnifique et accueil tellement chaleureux, avec une propriétaire qui nous a assisté tout le long de notre séjour avec ses conseils concernant les endroits à visiter, que nous sommes repartis le coeur lourd. Très heureux d'avoir trouvé un endroit où nous sommes les bienvenus avec notre chien! Nous avons déjà recommandé Pyrenées Mon Amour à nos amis et comptons revenir très bientôt.
