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.

Grotte la merveilleuse

  • 5 of 5

Pour notre premier séjour dans le Languedoc , nous avons très apprécié le gîte "la Grotte " à Felluns . Très spacieux, très bien équipé, propre, et surtout original !

Le cadre est très calme et idéal pour une coupure de la vie active.

Madame Fabienne, la propriétaire est très sympa et est très à l'écoute de ses clients . L' accueil est aussi chaleureux.

Nous recommanderions ce gîte à des amis, nous avons d'ailleurs demandé la location du gîte "le café d'abadie" à Me Fabienne pour le mois de septembre ! Ils semblent tous originaux ! C'est avec plaisir que nous y reviendrons.
