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 Easter, 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.
My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at Clos Mirabel and it was perfect from start to finish. Our hosts, Ann and Andre, provided the perfect level of hospitality without intruding on our quiet relaxation, from the glass of perfectly chilled local Jurançon wine on arrival to the wonderful advice on the local area. Breakfast was a plentiful array of meat, salmon, cheese, bread (the walnut was our favourite!), cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, honey, jams and even fresh eggs from the Clos Mirabel hens. We had the Blue Room which was perfect, bright and airy with the most breathtaking view of the Pyrénées Atlantiques. If you want to get some peace and quiet, in the most beautiful, peaceful surroundings, you must try here; I know we will be back.
