Mirbeau, loosely translated as “reflected beauty,” is inspired in part by the soft light, warm colors and introspective character found in the paintings of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet. Mirbeau Inn & Spa was designed to evoke the warmth and comfort of a private French wine country estate and give you the feeling that you have truly “gotten away” even if you are only a few miles from home.
The Inn and its surrounding buildings and special gardens call to mind an old-world blend of casual elegance, unique and interesting architecture and classic pleasures. The chateau-like Inn and Spa buildings, including the four freestanding Cottages, replicate a private country estate that curves gracefully around the beautiful gardens and ponds inspired by Monet’s own gardens in Giverny, near Paris.
