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. 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, 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.
Other Things to Note
The wi-fi is available on site not included with accommodation.
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 !!
We had a great welcoming at this beautiful location. The room for 4 adults was very spacious and well equipped with an interesting history. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. The town is special with a great bakery but the streets are very narrow. Internet was only available in the garden, it would be better if you had access in the rooms, but the solid walls probably make that difficult, good for sound proofing though. Close to many towns and cities, you need a car for this location. We did not want to leave!
Notre séjour au logis colbert fut très agréable, une belle localité et une bâtisse magnifique au bord du fleuve.
A cela s'ajoute un très bon accueil et une belle piscine,je recommande fortement ce logis pour un dépaysement assuré.
Bel appartement situé dans une bâtisse de caractère. Le jardin et la piscine sont très agréables. L'accueil fut très chaleureux. Le village a beaucoup de charme. Un endroit parfait pour se déconnecter du tumulte de la ville!
Fantastic apartment in a beautiful village! Spacious, clean with everything you'd need and then more with the pool and games room downstairs. Checking in was easy and Jean-Jacques was really efficient with communication, took all the stress away from travelling for the wedding. Thanks JJ, appreciate your hospitality!
this was the most amazing place ever - a beautiful old mansion with several lovely apartments, a pool, games room, right on the river, in a charming town. perfect!
