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 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 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.

We had booked The Gatehouse for a whole month to share with family/friends for a special holiday.We were not disappointed our stay at Clos Mirabel AMAZING!! The beauty and charisma of the whole estate is breath taking! Ann & Andre very welcoming and always happy to help.Ann went far beyond role of host going off in car to collect my stranded husband on a broken cycle! Ann you are a star thank you.A special thank you to Xavier who when we needed a dr,made the calls,translated for us to the dr & Ambulance crew! Also the next day popping in to see how the patient was!!! We felt part of Clos Mirabel's special extended family!

The Gatehouse very well stocked kitchen so lovely to have extra cutlery/glasses/plates etc! We had booked a welcome platter what a feast!The garden around The Gatehouse so spacious! Ideal for relaxing in the shade or sun!& for Al Fresco BBQ's! We had the delight of bats appearing each night and a Red Squirrel & lovely Owl!!! Sunsets to revel in and the mountain fresh air so refreshing.After a trip out the pool a real welcome relief! So refreshing and the views outstanding fron the pool terrace! Pau so close to go too for amazing meals,the Chateau,the buildings & ambiance!!!

Clos Mirabel,Ann & Andre made our special holiday unique and one we shall treasure.

Thank You

Beautiful setting, super accomodation, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Gatehouse last May when we came to visit my youngest son who was at University in Pau. The accomodation was spacious - plenty of room for my two grown-up sons, my husband, myself, and my son's girlfriend. The large garden was perfect and we spent a lot of time sitting in the garden and eating outside. The outdoor pool which is just outside the main house has stunning views over the valley, vineyards and the Pyranees. I was lovely to spend time there with a bottle of wine in the evening and it was warm enough to swim almost every day of our week's holiday. Ann and Andre were terrific hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. We certainly want to come back and hopefully bring our grandchildren, I know they would love it. A beautiful area, lots to do and see - highly recommended.

beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Begin juli hebben wij (klein gezin met een dochter van vier) een week doorgebracht in "the gatehouse" van Clos Mirabel. Het was er heerlijk en rustig. Er zit een grote tuin bij het gatehouse en het hele terrein is echt prachtig. Voor kleine kinderen zijn er schommels en is er een trampoline. Het uitzicht vanaf de tuin voor het grote huis en het zwembad is geweldig. Ann and André zijn heel aardig, gastvrij, behulpzaam en zeker niet opdringerig. The gatehouse is comfortabel en van ale gemakken voorzien. En belangrijk: je kunt het er vrij koel houden, ook als het buiten heet is. Kortom: dit huis is van harte aan te bevelen!!!
