About this listing
We receive you in the ancient Royal Factory of Sheets of the XVII th century.
The Logis Colbert in Bize-Minervois was formerly a Royal factory producing sheets for the Kings soldiers. It was built in the XVIIe century and closed after the French Revolution.
Active until 1789, the factory did not resist to the sale of the national possessions in 1791. It is acquired in 1836 by the back grandfather of the current owner. The Jean-Jacques family have been living there ever since that time.
Some other parts of this big and historic building were restored by his father as holiday apartments and include beautiful gardens on the side of the river Cesse with swimming pool, tennis and private parking. A variety of shops and 3 restaurants can be found in the village as well as 2 supermarkets less than 5 kms away..
Today, reconverted with happiness to shelters of holidays (apartments and independent houses by the river), it raises itself proudly at the edge of the Cesse and participates in the embellishment of the village.
In the enclosed garden, the pool (12,5 x 5,5 m), floodlit at night, is available from april 1st to october 10th, with sunlounge, sunbeds, barbecue etc. Meals may be taken in the garden where tables and chairs are provided. The games room, tennis and volleyball courts (grass) are also at your disposition. On the whole: 728 m² of garden.

Très bonne adresse. La demeure est superbe, dans un joli village du Minervois. Nous avons bien profité du jardin, dans lequel nous avons pique niqué le soir. La piscine est très agréable. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et y retournerons certainement.

It was a wonderful location, a small little peaceful village. We arrived late due to some trafic problems but even then they were there to welcome us. Highly recommended!
We (mum,dad and 3 children) stayed at this enchanting accommodation in the charming walled village of Bize-Minervois en route to the Alps. We were delighted to have discovered this secret idyll with it;s lovely restaurant, boulangerie and river for the children to swim in. Our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating, even providing us access to a huge and beautiful 16th century garage for our trailer! We spent many hours by a lovely pool in the leafy private garden and the children played table tennis in the common room. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Do read the other reviews which give an good description of the history of this this stunning building that has been in the family for generations.
