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
The wi-fi is available on site not included with accommodation.
The property was wonderful - amazing building, beautiful big pool, refreshingly cold as it was so hot! The hosts were lovely, friendly and accommodating as we were quite a large wedding group so they made our stay perfect! Rooms/apartments are huge and well equipped, and whilst Bize is so small it's hard not to be well-placed, it was great being a 5 min walk from absolutely everything! We would definitely stay here if we ever came back
Très bon accueil et très bel endroit. Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable comme à la maison. Le lieu est magnifique et les hôtes très attentionnés
We loved staying here. The garden and pool are lovely. We enjoyed eating our evening meals out in the garden. The apartment was spacious and accommodated our needs well. We appreciated the crib and high chair. The town is quite sweet with friendly people. It was certainly near to all the things we wanted to see.
We spent a lovely week at Logis Colbert. Madame Mathieu couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay . The apartment was basic but spacious and had everything we needed. The pool and BBQ area are well kept and Logis Colbert's location is perfect for exploring the beautiful village of Bize and surrounding area. The patisserie in the village is also fantastic. Thank you Madame Mathieu!
Beautiful place and beautiful apartment. We had a pleasant stay. Nice garden and pool. You can walk to several restaurants and there is a supermarket and a bakery in walking distance. I would recommand this place to everybody.
We had a great time here. Very kind people. They make you feel free (like you are at home, not like a guest on visit). Large private space inside and large swimmingpool to share. We also got a map for a roadtrip and were happy to play Some tennis. And we used the bbq (the supermarket around the corner Sells the best entrecote). To us it was a perfect place to relax a bit after seven days in various hotels.
We had a wonderful stay at the Logis Colbert in Bize Minervois. Nice hosts, nice appartment with old-fashioned furniture, great swimming pool and lovely garden. We will be back !!
