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.

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.
The apartment was spacious clean and comfortable. It Is In A lovely village. The pool looked Very Nice. Other guests And A friend in the area gave us information on where to visit, as none was given by the Host. We did not meet Jean-Jacques.
The Wifi was located outside in the garden area. It was not available, If raining and was only available between 9am And 9pm which made it difficult when contacting Australia.
Le Logis Colbert is the perfect little hideaway.The apartment was clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable.The pool was a real sun trap and a very pleasant way to cool down after a days sightseeing. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jean Jacques, but his mother and assistant Deliah were very friendly and helpful.
The village itself has everything you need, a friendly village shop that sells excellent wine, a selection of nice restaurants (our favourite was the Cafe de Midi).We also got the opportunity to mix with the locals, watching a petanque competition on the Monday night.A thoroughly French experience!
We would definitely recommend Le Logis Colbert and hope to return one day.
Great place in a super charming town. The pool was great but you could also swim in the river Outside the Logis walls. It's hard to find a place in France that will accommodate a family of five. Was glad to have found this place. About an hour drive from Montpellier train station.
Great to have a pool after a long day in the car. Beautiful olde worlde charm. Very comfortable. Great view from my room at the top. Lovely old town
Really nice stay, enjoyed the roof terrace and swimming pool and Bize Minervois was beautiful. Eat in Cafe Midi round the corner.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour au Logis Colbert. L'appartement Languedoc situé plein sud est calme et ensoleillé toute la journée, vue sur la piscine, le jardin et la rivière La Cesse.
La salle de jeux et le cours de tennis ont ravis mes garçons qui ont également bien profité de la piscine.
Bize-Minervois est une ville agréable et je recommande cet établissement pour son confort et équipements.
We loved Bize-Minervois and Le Logis Colbert and the family and staff were helpful, pleasant and welcoming. The pool area is kept very clean and whilst we were there was not overcrowded and the other communal areas - the large patio area with tables and the room with table tennis table - are also well kept and lovely to relax in. The freshwater pool in the village - only 1 or 2 mins walk from Le Logis - is also beautiful, clean and good for swimming.
Un excellent séjour au Logis Colbert !
Parfaitement situé au milieu du village de Bize, un resto de qualité à 2 pas, une piscine de belle taille et, surtout, des hôtes charmants et disponibles.
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...
