About this listing

The space

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, 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 15th to the end of october, with sunlounge, sunbeds, barbecue etc. Meals may be taken in the garden where tables and chairs are provided. The games room, and tennis court are also at your disposal.

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. Walk on the Canal du Midi (just 8 Km from Bize Minervois), Mediterranean Sea (35 Km, Narbonne-Plage, Gruissan), Medieval Village of Minerve (15 Km), Cité de Carcassonne (50 Km), Narbonne and its Cathedral (20 Km), Zoological African Park of Sigean (30 Km), etc.

On site we also make available laundry facilities (with ironing), housekeepers, childminders, shaded parking (open until 22h), bike garage. Just 100 metres from the Logis Colbert you'll find shops, a café, restaurants and a medical centre.

Le Logis Colbert is a little piece of heaven. We were sad to leave. The appartment (Les Alpilles) is perfect for a couple - spacious, comfortable, lovely views over the hills surrounding Bize-Minervois. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The general atmosphere was peaceful and joyful. We would strongly recommend Le Logis Colbert for a holiday.

We loved the location and the peaceful village which was so convenient for travel to see other towns and places of interest. Carcassonne, Minerve, St Guilhem le Desert, the views at D'enserune and Narbonne (Les Halles covered market is a must visit when you need a bite to eat) were highlights. Our accommodation was exactly as expected and the pool area was very welcome after a hard day's sightseeing. Yvonne was very helpful and the daily stroll to the parking area helped us to appreciate the village and its people. The only downside on our 8 night holiday was the bad behaviour of British folk attending a wedding in the Chateau nearby. Some of them stayed at Logis Colbert but their friends staying at lesser accommodation massed with them for two pool parties and our sleep was disturbed by 4am arrivals and a noisy room party at midnight in the apartment opposite ours. They showed no respect or regard for other guests...but we have rated the overall experience by ignoring their boorish behaviour and only rating the rest of our great holiday.

We had a very nice stay with Jean-Jacques and Yvonne. My boyfriend was disabled and Yvonne took very good care of us. She and her son in law were great!

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.
