Fifteen minutes from city lights, yet surrounded by vineyards. French-Canadian André is a retired diplomat, Ann worked in travel, Emily goes to the village school. They fell in love with Clos Mirabel five years ago, now they delightedly welcome guests. The 18th-century manor is flanked by a winery and gatehouse; the interiors are light, airy and restful, their gracious proportions enhanced by Ann's elegant eye. A spiral staircase links the Gustavian apartment's three levels, there's a pool terrace with breathtaking Pyrenean views and breakfast honey comes from André's bees. Outstanding.

"We spent several glorious days at Clos Mirabel ,    Jurancon France, in  October 2012.   We were greeted with an incredible view of mountains and vineyards, which was matched  inside by a large warm beautifully furnished home.  Our room was large,  airy,  immaculate, and very pretty.  How could it get any better?

"Other reviewers have extolled and described the virtues of Clos Mirabel with its incomparable views over the Pyrenees. One should perhaps add that having André with his French-Canadian diplomatic background and Ann with her perfect grasp and love of things French means that you feel you really are in France, yet at home, from wherever you come. A gem."

"We were welcomed most graciously by Andre and Ann to this most delightful and beautifully restored home. A very welcome beer (in my case) was followed by a lovely meal at a nearby restaurant, recommended by Andre. We were in a bedroom which Ann is quite obviously very proud of, with good reason; elegant furniture and a bed as good as our own (high praise). Wonderful and congratulations to them. We will be back to try the golf!"

"We enjoyed a wonderful three days in Ann and Andre’s beautiful home, Clos Mirabel. For us, staying at Clos Mirabel was a holiday within a holiday. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. From the moment of our arrival, Ann and Andre treated us as if we were extended family, always welcoming, never intrusive. Guest accommodation in the main house at Clos Mirabel really is part of the family home and it is impossible not to feel comfortable and relaxed. The rooms are generous, inviting, beautifully furnished and, in our view, exceptional value. Breakfast at Clos Mirabel is also a very special experience and Ann goes to some trouble to ensure that everything on the table is of the finest quality. In addition to beautiful homemade jams and local smoked trout and ham, there are delicious cheeses and organic yoghurts from the surrounding area. These are all served in a charming dining room, through the windows of which can be seen vineyards in the foreground with the Pyrenees as backdrop. We strongly recommend Clos Mirabel to friends, some of who have already visited and left feeling the same as we do! Even from Sydney, Australia, we will be back!"

"An absolute delight. A haven of peace. Beautiful house & grounds, fabulous position with open view to Pyrenees. Very comfortable and immaculately clean rooms. Wonderful breakfast. Ann & Andre are attentive and charming hosts. Very highly recommended."

"We went here on our honeymoon, and we couldn't have chosen anywhere better for a relaxing and romantic time away. In fact, it was so relaxing, we stayed an extra day! The rooms and property are large, elegant, and immaculate, but it was Ann and André who 'made' our stay here. They put in real effort to making us feel at ease, with plenty of space to relax on our own, and they shared so many small kindnesses that we can't begin to count them all. Some highlights were the homegrown fruit and local specialties that piled the breakfast table, Ann and Andre's engaging conversation, and the stunning view of the Pic du Midi that greeted us every morning from our window shutters. This is quite possibly the best b&b we have ever visited. Our only real advice (besides staying here) is to make sure you have a car - taxis can definitely get you into Pau/Jurancon, but it's enough of a distance that having your own transportation helps a lot. We'd also recommend the nearby two-star Chez Ruffet in Jurancon for a special night out."
