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.
We stayed two nights at Clos Mirabel in late September. If only we could have stayed longer… Ann and André are exceptional hosts. The room was gorgeous, the views outstanding and the breakfasts were the best we had anywhere during our six weeks in Europe. Congratulations to our hosts for providing such a memorable sojourn.
