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.
My stay at Clos Mirabel was extraordinary. The beauty of the place is a balm for the spirit and the hospitality of my hosts was a remedy for the soul. It is hard to sufficiently describe the impact of this place. Its beauty and warmth are extended with such genuine generosity you can’t help but be deeply moved by the experience. Everything is as shown in the photographs and even better than the descriptions written about the property. I was traveling alone but felt like I was a guest in the home of dear friends. The trip via train to Pau from Paris was a pleasure and easy to navigate. In a perfect world, everyone would have the opportunity to meet Ann and André and stay at Clos Mirabel. I plan to return as often as possible. It is a very special place.
