About The Owner

French-Ca­na­dian An­dré is a re­tired di­plo­mat; Ann worked in the trav­el in­dus­try and public af­fairs. They both have a keen in­ter­est in health and well-be­ing which is re­flect­ed in their choice of Clos Mira­bel and its out­s­tand­ing lo­ca­tion look­ing over vine­yards, out to­wards the en­tire chain of the Pyrénées At­lan­tiques. Ann has a keen in­ter­est in psy­chol­o­gy; Emi­ly at­tend­ed French school and fin­ished her se­condary ed­u­ca­tion at the in­ter­na­tio­n­al school in Pau.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Val d'Adour - Pau

Much trav­elled Ann and An­dre fell in love with Clos Mira­bel and its breath-tak­ing views over 13 years ago. They lived in the 18th Cen­tu­ry Manor House for 2 years be­fore un­der­tak­ing a ma­jor ren­o­va­tion in 2005 re­tain­ing as many of the his­tor­i­cal fea­tures as pos­si­ble.

The orig­i­nal house at Clos Mira­bel was a very sim­ple Béar­naise farm­house built be­tween 1732 and 1738. A small barn was add­ed a lit­tle lat­er. In 1825, the prop­er­ty was purchased by Jean Mira­bel, hence the name, Clos Mira­bel. At the same time he bought sev­er­al acres of land that in­clud­ed the vine­yard.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Set in 15 acres of park­land the Clos Mira­bel Es­tate of­fers you a chance to re­lax in a peace­ful sett­ing. Clos Mira­bel pro­vides a hill­top haven in Bed and Break­fast and Self Ca­ter­ing Ac­com­mo­da­tion where vis­i­tors feel re­freshed and in­spired.

Ev­ery­one can en­joy the park at their lei­sure. It of­fers swings, swim­ming pool and tram­po­line for some, ex­plo­ra­to­ry walks for others or sim­p­ly re­lax­a­tion in the shade of our oak trees. Ad­mire the mag­ni­f­i­cent un­in­ter­rupt­ed views of the en­tire chain of the Pyrénées At­lan­tiques.

The large mo­sa­ic tiled pool in the Clos Mira­bel grounds is avai­l­able to all guests from May to mid Oc­to­ber. Part­ly so­lar heat­ed mea­sur­ing 12×6 me­ters and with a depth of 1-2 me­ters, it of­fers amaz­ing views of the vine­yards and Pyrénées.

Sun loungers, gar­den fur­ni­ture and bar­be­cues are al­so pro­vid­ed for your re­lax­a­tion.

Perfect stay near Pau

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a lovely stay with Anne and Andre. The Peach Room was spacious and bright with an up to date en suite bathroom and comfy bed. A small, organic winery is an easy stroll down the road. Just ring the bell at the gate and Manu will come round and provide a free tour and wine tasting.

The view of the snow-capped Pyrenees is amazing, looking out over the vineyards and rolling hills to the south. A great value and a wonderful visit. Easy to find, hard to leave.

Great family holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a number of times over the years at Clos Mirabel, and will be returning next year. It is a wonderful, welcoming retreat with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of things for families to do, such as swimming in the pool, waterslides at the beach and ziplining through the trees in the forest nearby. I would highly recommend Clos Mirabel to family and friends.

Fabulous bed and breakfast!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the master bedroom and it was not only beautiful but the view from the window was spectacular! The breakfast was very filling and delightful. Being greeted at the door with a glad of regional wine was wonderful too

Pyrénées-Atlantiques - Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Clos Mirabel is truly a little piece of paradise sitting majestically overlooking the Cote de Jurrançon and the Pyrénées. André and Ann are the perfect hosts.

The absolute peacefulness of this property of an evening is profound with the only nocturnal sounds being that of two Tawny owls calling each other. The manor house provides exceptional accommodation, with breakfast consisting of fresh local produce. If there was ever a place to either re-charge your batteries, or as a staging post for exploring the south of France or Spain then this is it. I can not speak more highly of Clos Mirabel and our beautiful hosts. For my wife's birthday it could not have been better. I believe they may have even been a little tear shed by her when we left. Most highly recommended.

Amazing place with amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived Ann, Andre and Emily welcome us into the superb Clos Mirabel. With its dominant position atop a hill, it is sheltered from the elements with an incredible view south across Jurancon vines and across to the Pyrenees you could easily believe you were a million miles from civilisation rather than just 15 minutes from the centre of Pau.

After asking for tips on where to eat, we headed into Pau and found the parking easy and the local food delicious. There is even a Michelin starred Auberge just a few minutes drive away and many other local attractions making this area far more inviting than anywhere else we have been in France.

Our room was well made, nicely decorated and offered us that grand view directly from our windows. It also managed that most difficult of things for a guest room; it was spacious and open to while away some time reading, whilst at the same time being cosy and we slept like logs.

Breakfasts at Clos Mirabel are wonderful with generous helpings of local produce, warm breads and freshly made food, and not a cliched croissant in sight.

I would heartily recommend Clos Mirabel to anybody visiting the area and we look forward to our next trip so we can return :)
