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.

Le gîte est très propre, la bâtisse belle, le village joli.
Nous avons été bien accueillis.
Le jardin / terrasse est petit mais très agréable : ombragé et calme, très planté.
Une seule petite déception : la salle de jeu, qui ne remplit pas toutes les promesses de la photo : pas de flippers et babyfoot payant, manquant de balles... Rien de dramatique mais c'est vrai que cette salle de jeu est un vrai argument pour le gîte quand on nombreux et que la météo est incertaine.
Séjour impeccable, bon accueil, piscine top, appartement vaste et confortable.
Beaucoup de jeux à disposition, bien pensé pour les familles.
On aurait aimé rester plus longtemps, les enfants aussi.
Peut-être une prochaine fois...
Gîte très agréable, très bien situé, calme, environnement exceptionnel pour des vacances en famille.
Hôte disponible et réactif
Logi Colbert is an excellent place for families. The pool is great in the heat, the host is very friendly, the garden with shadow and barbecue is lovely, and the little village is charming and full og atmosphere. We loved our week there, we loved the fact that even though we are amins other turists, we didnt feel as in a turist place at all. Perfect hollyday !
