Owner purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Owner chose Jurançon
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.

A really great place for a family holiday
We stayed with our 2 small children in this wonderful setting. The apartment was beautiful with everything we needed. The children had the bedroom on the ground floor and we had the top room with over 50 metres of space .
The kitchenette had everything we needed and more. Our kids loved the freedom of the gardens and spend lots of time on the trampoline and swings.
We all loved the pool and exploring Pau. We found plenty of family activities including the Artouste train through the mountains, visits to lakes with beaches and high wire climbing adventures ... We will be back!
Magnifique location vue sur les Pyrénées, accueil des plus chaleureux.
Domaine splendide au milieu des vignes, piscine très agréable, accueil très sympathique. Parfait !!
Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir à Clos Mirabel et nous espérons avoir la possibilité de vous revoir si vous séjournez à nouveau dans cette belle région méconnue de France.
