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 apartment 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 apartment 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely location, on top of a ridge facing south towards the Pyrenees with vineyards below.

Warm welcome from Ann and Andre with a glass of wine on the Terrace!

Large, comfortable rooms and beautiful grounds and a pool.

Ann and Andre together with their surroundings create a sense of peace and tranquility.

Brilliant!

A beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Generously and stylishly furnished.

Beds were comfortable with good linen

The hosts were charming, you are made v welcome and nothing is too much trouble. We were given info about how to find accommodation for our daughter's time at the University, where to get the best cheese, who was the best ham provider, the most enthusiastic wine grower etc etc!

Make sure you see the kiwi tunnel!

The spiral staircase is not for the faint-hearted and would be unsuitable for the elderly or young.

The views are exceptional.

Go, you'll have a lovely time!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and site of Clos Mirabel. The three-story apartment was comfortable and attractive, and the beds very good. Especially nice is the pool and the setting and visitas of the property. We made day trips easily to Biarritz and area, the Pyrenees, Lourdes, and of course Pau. Area restaurants are good, although the one-star Michelin nearby was the "emulsion-froth" type of cuisine! The owners Ann and Andre and their daughter are very pleasant. I would recommend that they provide written specific instructions for the dishwasher, clotheswasher, BBC on TV, and A-C-- instead of being called on each time that help is needed. And that they run through a check list to ensure beach towels, detergent, or basics are ready and in place. Same for a diary for and by visitors, with local recs added by each in turn, to leave in the apartment. The property was clean and really very lovely-- much better than staying down in Pau! I would go back again!

Clos Mirabel Manor House Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this charming Manor House Apartment for a week. The apartment is comfortable, light, well furnished, very clean and there is excellent attention to detail. The hosts Ann and André are very friendly and helpful. They willingly share their local knowledge and make suggestions about regional attractions, eating places and most things you might want to know. The surroundings are beautiful and the mountain views stunning. When we ate in, we took our meals and wine out to the pool surrounds and enjoyed being in such a beautiful place. We certainly recommend Clos Mirabel as a great experience in itself and as a convenient base to explore the fantastic French Pyrenees, together with the wine and cheese trails.
