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.

Other Things to Note

Our holiday in Logis Colbert was in one word MAGNIFIQUE. The apartment is large, the kitchen is well equipped (dishwasher and all you need for cooking and serving good meal). M. Jean-Jacques installed an Internet in our apartment which was necessary for our nomad stay. There was not a washing machine, but it was not a problem to go to the laundry across the street to wash it for free. Beds are quite comfortable and we also appreciated the baby bed and the chair. The weather in Bize is very hot in summer and the heat came also into the Gascogne appartement, especially the bedrooms. We shared the beautiful swimming pool with other guests from Logis. Logis Colbert is the ideal place to stay for families with the children. Little town Bize is very calm and people are so nice and friendly.
Hi! We spent a perfect days in Bize-Minervois. The house is very nice and clean. There is beautiful garden and my best surpise was the pingpong table! The town is fantastic. We enjoy our time in Jean-Jacques place. I recommend it! :)
We were very happy with the flat. Perhaps the flat was a bit cold but it is comprehensive, since we only stay one night.
Reçu par une dame qui y travaille. Gîte grand et correctement équipé mais ameublement très vieillot et confort spartiate. Chauffage très juste pour l'hiver surtout dans la salle de bains.
Bonjour à tous!
On peut recommander le Logis Colbert à tout point de vue! L' accueil était chaleureux et l'appartement était propre et bien équipée! Nous avions vraiment un bon séjour, merci bien pour tout.
We had a great (although too short) visit at Jean-Jacques accommodations. The positive experience started with a warm welcome from his mother (as Jean-Jacques was at work). Staying in the former sheet factory added to the imagination of the experience. The garden was wonderful and provided an excellent setting for a relaxing glass of wine and relaxing conversation. It was too bad that we arrived on the only day that the local restaurants were closed (except for the ever-welcoming pizza place).
Excelente atención por parte de Delia. La casa es muy acogedora, con un bello jardín. Aunque le faltaría una actualización del interior de los apartamentos y mobiliario. El anuncio obedece bastante a la realidad. Hemos pasado una muy buena estancia.
