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.

This appartment is suitable for a family, but may not be suitable for a renting by several couples because of the disposition of the rooms in mezzanines.

We absolutely loved Logis Colbert. The apartment was very spacious with 7 beds on 3 floors. If you like quirky without bling in an absolutely beautiful old world setting, this is for you. The building is stunning and the pool area equally so. We were given a very warm welcome and had the impression that nothing would be a problem during our stay. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for two weeks in Aug 2015. Our hosts were lovely and very helpful and welcoming. The Property is very charming and authentic with a lovely swimming pool. The Tour/Tower is sufficiently furnished but quite basic. A really nice outdoor terrace is a welcome addition and has lots of morning sunshine Overall. We would highly recommend Logis Colbert. Great location and value for money. Many Thanks to Yvonne and Jean-Jacques.

Our host was very welcoming, as was his mother during our stay. A delightful, rustic, apartment. Home was well set up with all necessary requirements. Comfy beds and thank you! - linen provided. The logis Colbert is a collection of apartments in the mill and other areas of town. We met many guests, some who had been coming for 11 years. It has a lovely pool area and is close to a delightful swimming hole. Our apartment was very open so unfortunately you all wake together- didn't bother our children- just us. Our kids enjoyed the different levels.

The place is amazing. We were met by Jean-Jacques' very charming mother and she showed us around in her perfect English. And the lovely Delia was on hand to answer questions and give advice throughout the stay. La Tour is a cool (temperature) and rustic place to stay – we slept in comfort and ate on the sunny terrace. If you have children, they will adore everything about this place.

Email communication was easy with very fast responses. Bize Minervois is a lovely village. We stayed in Le Tour apartment for 6 persons. The apartment is very spacious and had a large terrace which was lovely to have breakfast on. The apartment is dated though, beds quite old and the floors very creeky. As the bedrooms are all connected (via open stairway) this means that everyone is awake when one person wakes up. The wifi only works on the terrace near the pool (so not in the apartments). All in all, though, we enjoyed our stay at Le Logis Colbert.

This was the second time we have spent our summer holidays at Le Logis Colbert. We were made very welcome (again), and we loved the accommodation. La Tour had lots of space for our family, and the large terrace was perfect for meals outside in the sunshine. Bize Minervois is a great location for a visit to the region - there is so much to do including the nearby beaches, horse riding, visiting markets, wineries and more. There was also lots on in the village during our stay - the Olive Festival, Bastille Fireworks and more! Our 2 children also loved the pool at Le Logis Colbert - perfect for cooling off on those hot days! We would highly recommend this accommodation and host - and we can't wait to return!!

This is the perfect getaway into Bize wine country...the whole side trip was one of our highlights of Europe. Jean-Jacques' family runs a great inn. His mom is full on energy and smiles...she made us feel perfectly at home and made sure the nearby restaurant would take care of us. A very unique property. Highly recommend!
