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.
- The relaxing calm of the extensive terrassed flower gardens overlooking the river with lawns down to the water's edge. In the nearby hills, walking, moutain bike circuits abound, horse riding, paragliding.

Other Things to Note

Nous sommes absolument ravis des 3 jours / 2 nuits passés au Logis Colbert. Le cadre de cette ancienne manufacture est très agréable avec sa belle piscine et ses cours extérieures entourées de végétation, son emplacement pratique proche des petits commerces tout en étant au calme. Le studio Alpilles était parfait pour notre petite famille avec un lit bébé prêté (+ notre couffin pour notre nouveau-né mais un 2ème lit bébé était dispo si nous le voulions).
Les hôtes sont très accueillants, autant disponibles si besoin, chaleureux et serviables que discrets pour profiter pleinement de votre séjour.
Venus à l'occasion du mariage de nos très proches amis, nous avons pu profiter pleinement de l'événement à Montouliers tout près et nous reposer au logis comme dans une jolie bulle. Cet endroit a contribué à rendre parfait ce week-end !
Nous y retournerons sûrement pour découvrir un peu plus cette région magnifique.
Très bon accueil de la part du propriétaire ainsi que de son assistante.
Le logement correspondait aux photos mises sur le site.
Le village est très calme idéal pour les familles, se reposer et découvrir la région.
Le propriétaire et son assistante sont toujours là pour nous renseigner si besoin est.
L'atout majeur est la piscine ainsi que le jardin dans le logis.
Seul petit bémol : nous avions des voisins bruyants.
Really nice place. Very quiet small town. Very French too. Nearly any village around is worth exploring. Highlights Abbaye de Fontfroide and Minerve but sure we missed many things.
Apartment where we stayed (Les Alpilles) very homie. Nice views, pool downstairs in beautiful garden. What else? :)
We had a wonderfull time at Logis Colbert. The village Bize-Minervois is really cozy with some nice restaurants. We hired bikes for a couple days to visit the area and vineyards, which was beautiful. The mother of Jean-Jacques was very helpfull and give us some good tips. It was nice to take a swim in the pool after a day trip and the garden was peachfull for having diner or bbq. The room was very authentiek. Also a little bit old but it was clean and big enough. We really recommend this place and had a wonderfull time!!
We stayed for 3 Nights and took day trips to various locations around. The apartment has a very spacious living room with a kitchenette and has everything you need. It overlooks part of the village and some of the surrounding gardens. It's a very picture-book kind of town theres a river flowing through it, some little cafes and even a rooster crowing in the morning. The host was very friendly and accommodating and welcomed us the minute we rolled onto the parking lot. Would definitely recommend this place.
