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
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.
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.

This is the best location, outside of the city. Fantastic manor, top notch hospitality, beautiful rooms. Don't look for something else, we were truly thrilled about our stay. Breakfast was amazing. Rooms were very large and comfortable. Fantastic view on the mountains. If i ever have a chance to go back, it is the only location where i would stay again. Thnaks to the great hosts!! Alexandra
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.
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
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.
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 :)
