Introduction. The word Equivocal in every sense

)

Doubt is an interrogation that opposes certainty. Uncertainty covers itself in doubt and calls for interpretations. Doubt raises ideas and then complicates them.

It

flees from proof, it longs for questioning. By creating uncertainty and ambiguity, doubt keeps us hesitant, dreaming, and ignites our curiosity.

a place where the spirit wanders freely in nature, in a hitherto unseen landscape. In Chinese philosophy such a setting is thought to promote wisdom. Numerous Chinese intellects value the tranquility of nature because it allows one to escape from reality, thus nourishing the spirit and readying the soul for artistic achievement.

Burgundy’s numerous charms attract tourists year-round. The region boasts prestigious wines, a rich history, and an impresive architectural heritage: the castles of Burgundian dukes, the abbeys of Cistercian monks, churches that date from the Roman era. Burgundy has long been a powerful economic and cultural force in France and Europe. Each year, the production and sale of the region’s renowned vintatges attracts tourists and wine-lovers from around the world.


Burgundy hosts a number of internationally acclaimed cultural events each year. Prominent among them is Beaune’s International Festival of Baroque Opera. Another is the grand festival of Saint Vincent Tournante, patron saint of winegrowers, which in 2011 will take place in the

manoir’s village of Corgoloin.


THE MANOR : HISTORY, DESCRIPTION, AND RENOVATIONS The manor dates from the 16th century [or 15th?] and is listed in the official register of French historic monuments. It was the property of Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins, founders of the Hospices de Beaune, one of the world’s best-known charitable institutions. Major renovations to the manor were completed in 2010. Today it is owned by Madame Mireille Lenoir-Senard.

The manor

The manor is a square building featuring barred windows and a tower with a pointed roof. Its spacious rooms have grand chimneys and soaring beamed ceilings. une élégante salle basse voûtée.

The dovecote

The dovecote is a tower located in a corner of the manor’s ancient walls. It has a pigeon house on the upper floors and an elegant dome-topped room on the ground floor.


A stone wall

A stone wall links the manor to the dovecote, and the dovecote to the barn. A pathway is planned for the top of the wall. This loop will allow visitors to circulate freely among the three main buildings on the grounds: the dovecote, the barn, and the manor.

BUILDING DESCRIPTION

The barn is a spacious agricultural building with a simple and elegant facade that perfectly completes the manor’s courtyard.

The cellar

The cellar is composed of two large vaulted rooms in excellent condition.


GUEST ROOMS On top of the hamlet’s Moux’s hill, sits peacefully the soft pink manor dressed in smooth plaster and 15th century stones. Lined with a large barn, stone walls, a dovecote, and rolling ceral hills, with the turn of one’s head, you gaze strolls from Mont Blanc to the golden vines of Burgundy. After a long rest, the Equivocal slowly swings opens its thick and generous walls to welcome you where silence and mother nature stay infalliblty sovereign. This reborn piece of history persuades you to open wide your windows, smell the roses, and listen to the distant music of rustling rivers and leafs. Its elegant and spacious medieval chamber, marked by its majestic chimney, ensures authentic rest and comfort . The hamlet dwells in an ideal location within a stone’s throw from the grandest winegrowers’ domaines. It is but 10 km away from both the cities of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune.

“I have a secret garden: China. My garden is the image of that country: vast and magisterial, with walls scarred by time. My garden shelters marvels. As in China, all things are possible, spontaneous, animated, shaped by the past and focused on the future.

All sorts of games are played here.

A childlike

atmosphere gives rise to dreams, arouses amazement. This garden is generous, bewitching and without taboos. It is paved with sparkling flowers and twining roots. Its inspirations are the evanescent fingerprints of ancient China, its thought and its wisdom. Superstition, spirituality, modesty, humility and grace pervade the nooks and crannies.
