We arrived they were closed for lunch,staff were so friendly and helpful they have used the quiz and we set off. It was a lovely walk but we were hoping to see more of what really happens on a vineyard, rather than just read about it on boards around chateau. Wine tasting afterwards was great, highlight of the visit, but... More

A very pleasant way to spend an hour or two especially if you have children. Gift shop had a wide range of reasonably price gifts considering it was small. Helpful staff

A nice place to bring the family for a walk and tastings. Clean and well put together, the self-tour was very informative.

We visited on Thursday 30th June and had a lovely time. The chateau is very well signposted and easy to locate. We followed the trail and found the information on the production of wine very informative and easy to understand (this took us about an hour). The 2 staff members had excellent English and were so helpful, also enjoyed the... More

Dear Madam, Thanks to take the time to write something about our winery. It’s always a pleasure to receive people, as much when they take advantage of the visit. This is a real enjoyment for us to explain our work, our passion. Les Jardins de Mirabel is a familial activity, more pedagogic and more fun than a classic guided tour. More

We all had a great day here, we followed the trail and completed the activity sheets and then finished the visit by trying the beautiful wines they produce here. Staff were very friendly and spoke great English.

We spent more than two hours in this lovely place. Kids liked the horses, ducks, we appreciated learning more about the wine in the area and tasted it of course :). Thanks to the nice people working there.

It was a roasting hot afternoon when we visited so we were already wilting when we arrived. The young woman who greeted us, was very hospitable and spoke excellent English. She gave us the wine trail quiz to fill in and explained how it all worked - one for the adults and one for the children. However, we weren't able... More
