Owner purchased this Chateau / Country House 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 Winery which housed the wine press has now been converted in to 4 self-catering Houses and Studios. 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 Chateau / Country House unique
Set in 15 acres of parkland the Clos Mirabel Estate offers you a chance to relax in a peaceful setting.

Summer in the French Pyrenees
What a fantastic location, really breathtaking, serene and restful. Could not have had a warmer welcome, breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pyrenees a dream. Customer services excellent, would recommend this without hesitation.
Pau and Jurancon delightful places to visit.
Dear Mrs Slater

Perfect stay near Pau
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.

Fabulous bed and breakfast!
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
Great family holiday location
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.
Fantastic house, beautiful location, great hosts
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
