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 eleven 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 one blissfully comfortable and entertaining evening here on our way to Carcassonne. Such a welcome, delicious dinner with plentiful wine and great company. This is a very special, elegant but cosy retreat, set in wooded hills and offering breathtaking views to the mountains. We will definitely be going back for longer next time as there’s much to see and do in the area. Lovely family, exceptional place to stay.

Three fantastic nights spent at Clos Mirabel as part of a larger tour.. We arrived tired after an early start from eastern France. Not really feeling the desire to go out and explore that evening. We asked Ann if she would be able to offer dinner that night. She was more than happy to do so. We had a wonderful evening as we were joined by a French guest travelling alone for work, and by Ann. These are the experiences you miss with more mass market hotels. Our room was lovely, over looking the pool and mountains in the distance. A beautiful place and we'll definitely return.

Our three nights at Clos Mirabel were blissful. The location is stunning: mountainscapes all around and peace which sinks deep into your bones. the house is both beautiful but hugely welcoming. Ann and Andre could not have done more to look after us: trays of tea, restaurant booking, loans of woolly hats for a trip to 9,000 feet, travel advice. Best of all they have a genuine passion for what they do; their hospitality is faultless. We could not believe the feasts offered for breakfast: fruit, yoghurt, local cheeses and hams, artisan breads, more kinds of honey than you knew existed. Go now!

The best place we stayed during our holiday. Fascinating area. We had the Master Bedroom - very spacious and comfortable - fabulous views - the breakfast was superb. Can't wait to go back.


A warm welcome awaited us at Clos Mirabel ~ tea on the terrace with the most magnificent view of the Pyrenees imaginable. Ann and Andre are natural hosts who ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible in their beautiful home.


We spent 2 days at Clos Mirabel en route to the Mediterranean coast. We were welcomed by Ann who is the perfect host. We were offered tea on the terrace overlooking the mountains. When the cloud clears what a view! Ann was also a helpful tour guide and gave us information on restaurants. She even booked them for us - both suggestions were excellent. Clos Mirabel is close to Pau and the mountains so there is plenty to do but it was lovely to return and sit in the garden or by the pool and gaze at the spectacular scenery! Our room was comfortable and breakfast was plentiful. A great find!


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? It did, as Andre and Anne, our hosts, we're very warm, hospitable, and informative.  They helped us plan our excursions and recommended great local restaurants.  We were also able to have them provide a picnic  and wine in the yard, overlooking the awesome mountain range.   We hope to


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.
