La Mirande is a fairy-tale setting for sophisticated family celebrations, especially weddings, as you cannot be overdressed for a house which stands for French decorative arts of the 18th century at its best. An enfilade of beautiful period reception rooms around the central patio contribute to the generous public space available to stage the event and the two ways of dining at La Mirande, one elegant and classic upstairs and the other convivial and “hearty” downstairs makes it easy to imagine all sorts of scenarios. The romantic location next to the Popes’ Palace contributes to the impression to step out of time or time travel for the very special occasions in life.
The elegant Napoleon III dining room, from when one of the previous owner’s family became city mayor, seats up to 16 guests and the old kitchen from the 19th century, downstairs in the servant’s quarters, can be privatized for memorable and entertaining (the chef cooks in front of the dinner party) evenings. The Garden Room can seat 40 guests and the adjacent terrace can be privatized for an equal number of people for a cocktail or pre- dinner apéritif.
