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 cottage 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 cottage 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.

STUNNING views of the Pyrenees

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Winery for 3 days, 4 nights in early April and we loved every minute. The winery, which sits alongside the Manor House, had everything we needed for our self catering stay – cooker, over, fridge, microwave, kettle etc. It was comfortable, warm and spacious. I have a real soft spot for wooden floors and those lovely French shutters and the winery didn’t disappoint. The English/French speaking hosts, Benoit & Maryse, were extremely friendly and always on hand to answer any questions or give advice. The most spectacular thing about the Winery, however, is its views of the Pyrenees which are second to none. Having never had much to do with mountains, I have a new found fondness for them. My two young boys had plenty of space to run around safely in the grounds immediately surrounding the Winery and the Manor House, which meant my husband and I could relax with some local cheese and wine by the pool and take in the lovely ambience. On a practical note, Clos Mirabel is just a short drive from local supermarkets where you can pick up just about anything you will need.

Memories for life

  • 5 of 5

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.

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. It is very much appreciated. The Winery has just been completely renovated which has made it a much more attractive & comfortable apartment. The magnificent views from the apartment of course remain the same... We currently have many cyclists staying who are trying the Tour de France route and practicing for the next étape. As you suggest,our guests who enjoy walking are discovering all the beauty of the Vallée d'Ossau. Seeing the Pyrenees from the terrace is wonderful and visiting the Pyrenean National Park is so easy, just 40 minutes door to door. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Clos Mirabel on another occasion. Very kind regards, Ann & André.

Deluxe mountain views

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great family holiday away

  • 5 of 5

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.
