Outline Programme and Details
Welcome to Clos Mirabel Art Ateliers specialising in Painting Holidays and Art Masterclasses in the foothills of the Pyrenees Atlantiques at Jurançon, Pau, South West France.
The Clos Mirabel Estate
Clos Mirabel is a beautiful fifteen-acre estate between coast and mountains. Set in private parkland amidst the gentle hills of Jurançon, Pau, the domaine offers magnificent uninterrupted views out over vineyards to the Pyrénées. A haven of peace, ever changing light and tranquillity, it is the perfect location for painting holidays.
At the heart of the estate is the picturesque 18th century Manor House with south facing terraces. The Manor House retains its old world charm and offers two large salons and a dining room to relax and share time together.
The Grounds and Pool
Everyone can enjoy six acres of parkland at their leisure, relax in the shade of our oak trees and admire the magnificent uninterrupted views of the entire chain of the Pyrénées Atlantiques. The large mosaic pool, partly heated by solar panels, is available to all guests from mid-May to mid-October.
Located on the first floor of the Winery, this studio space was designed by our Italian architect. It offers a spacious open plan layout of 55 m 2 ideal for small groups of up to 15. The studio, full of natural light, looks out on to the Manor House and its open courtyard. The studio is available at all times during your stay.
All our accommodation has been carefully renovated and skilfully decorated. Bedrooms are equipped with WiFi and rooms in the Manor House have air conditioning. We can offer single or double occupancy in all bedrooms. Non painting guests are most welcome
