Men on bicycles with mountains and 3 bikes in background

A re­cent cy­cling group de­scribed cy­cling in the Pyrénées with a base at Clos Mira­bel as a ‘myth­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence’ (Québé­cois cy­cling group May, 2018). If you or your cy­cling group is look­ing for your next chal­lenge Clos Mira­bel will be hap­py to hear from you.

Clos Mira­bel is a mag­ni­f­i­cent do­maine of 6 hec­tars be­tween coast and moun­tains. Its C18th manor is si­t­u­at­ed in a pri­vate park on the hills over­look­ing the vine­yards of Ju­rançon to the en­tire chain of the At­lan­tic Pyre­nees. In essence a haven of peace and tran­quil­l­i­ty.

View of the Clos Mirabel Manor from the sky

The view from the ter­race (see be­low) shows the Pic du Mi­di d’Os­sau and nes­tled in­side this mag­ni­f­i­cent chain lie the Col d’Au­bisque, and the Tour­malet, chal­leng­ing tests of en­du­rance in the Tour de France.
