The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003
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.
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.
From the end of August 2013 to the end of June 2014 our family (my husband, our three children and me) had the great privilege and pleasure of living in the apartment in the Winery at Clos Mirabel. Clos Mirabel has such a fortunate location – it was the most wonderful base for our ten-month long stay in France – just next to the larger city of Pau but at the same time undisturbed and close to nature. However, it was not the absence of noise we enjoyed the most – but the presence of a very special atmosphere of calmness and serenity that is characteristic of Clos Mirabel. The view towards the Pyrenees is something quite extraordinary, there is so much sky above one’s head and the ever-changing beauty of the landscape was something we enjoyed every day, even in the dark months. We simply all thrived there. Clos Mirabel was also a convenient starting point for many trips to the Basque country, the mountains (all seasons) and Spain. Ann and André were very kind and attentive landlords, we could always turn to them for advice and help, it was a great comfort to have their knowledge of the area always at hand. In short, our stay has given us lifelong memories that we will always cherish.

(I had to enter another arrival date to submit this review - please note that we arrived end August 2013.)
We stayed in the Winery Apartment for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our hosts Andre and Ann were very helpful in terms of restaurant and sightseeing recommendations, and the accommodation is well presented and in a beautiful location - not far from the amenities of Jurancon and Pau, but with a real rural feel. I'd recommend exploring the Vallee d'Ossau which is close by - magnificent mountain scenery everywhere! Overall a lovely spot to stay and I'd highly recommend it.
This was the priciest of our verbose rentals, and the one most nearly approximating a five-star hotel. ( There is a small pool.) As other reviewers have remarked, the hosts are especially gracious: by all means accept their recommendations for local dining. And be sure to pick in The wine store of Gan the sweet dessert wine Clos Mirabel bottled from grapes grown on the property. The apt for two in the Winery with the views was worth the price.
Excellent location & wonderful views. Definitely recommend The Winery as a great place to stay and enjoy the Pryenees. Andre & Anne are delightful hosts.
We had a great family holiday when we stayed at The Winery, Clos-Mirabel. The facilities are excellent, and the view from the house is stunning.The children loved the pool, and entertained themselves on the trampoline and swings.
Clos-Mirabel is well placed, if you want to travel by car, to visit Pau, go skiing, travel over the border to Spain, or visit the beach at Biarittz. I would certainly recommend this holiday property to family and friends.
We have just returned from our week long stay at Clos Mirabel. We were staying in the Winery which is perfectly situated by the pool and has the most fantastic view of the Pyrenees and French countryside from the front bedroom and terrace. The owners, Ann and Andre were great hosts; they got the fine balance correct of managing our privacy whilst being around to offer assistance when required, we genuinely believe that without their knowledge of the area we would not of experienced some of the things we did which made our stay so memorable, from suggesting scenic hikes in the Pyrenees to drawing maps of appropriate cycle rides (taking in some wineries on route and avoiding too many hills!). We shall definitely be recommending to our friends and hope to return at some point in the future.
