Painting Holidays at Clos Mirabel
14 – 21 October 2017
C los Mirabel is a beautiful fifteen-acre estate between coast and mountains. Its 18th Century Manor House is set in private parkland amidst the gentle hills of Jurançon with magnificent uninterrupted views out over vineyards to the entire chain of the Pyrénées Atlantiques. The owners Ann and André fell in love with the property 13 years ago and have renovated all the accommodation, sensitively blending new and old. In the midst of this remarkable landscape, Clos Mirabel offers several choices to stay in Bed & Breakfast or fully furnished Houses and Studios ideal for family holidays, romantic breaks, and overnight stays for work or leisure.
A haven of peace, ever changing light and tranquillity, it is the perfect location for Painting Holidays, Retreats, Family Occasions, Meetings and Seminars. It is open all year round including Christmas and New Year. Clos Mirabel is a few minutes from Pau with its Chateau, golf courses, race tracks and only 30 minutes to Lourdes. It is less than an hour from the mountains, ski resorts, cycling routes and hiking paths of the Pyrénées Atlantiques. Biarritz, on the Atlantic Coast, is an hour away as is the Spanish border. San Sebastian in the Spanish Basque Country is only an hour and a half away. Bilbao with its Guggenheim Museum is an easy day trip. Bordeaux and Toulouse are two hours away.
A very special place to stay in the Pyrénées all year round.
There are few places in the world where you feel a connection. This was one for us. We arrived as strangers and left as if we had known the place for some time. André and his charming daughter Emily made us feel so welcome. We explored the town of Pau, local vineyards and experienced the Pyrénées on Le Petit Train d’Artouste. André was very helpful in recommending local restaurants. Clos Mirabel is such a beautiful and tranquil place. We stayed in the Master Bedroom which is spacious and very comfortable. The view from the terrace is stunning. We sat there until dark. Breakfast consisted of cereals, cheeses, breads and delicious local honey. We felt sad to leave however we intend to return in the not-too-distant future. We recommend you visit Clos Mirabel and discover for yourself what a delightful place it is.
