About This Listing
OPENING ON THE 1st OF JULY
The 15th century cylindric dovecote topped with a
coned roof, holds a dominant and stragetic position
due to its former role as a watchtower. It lies at the
junction between the manor and the barn.
Its round stone walls are filled with over a thousand
interior niches. From the den all the way up to
the bedroom, certain niches penetrate completely
through the walls offering stunning micro views to the
surrounding fields and forests.
These piercings also create stunning rays of light that
move and drift throughout the interior. The bedroom
is capped by the ancient dovecotes rafters visible
through the transparent ceiling. This addition of a
transparent ceiling ensures guests safety from any
nocturnal owl intrusions.
Not suitable for people who could be afraid of heights. Also the stairs going up in the bedroom have a rather sharp slope.
Une très belle découverte en Bourgogne, et une hôte aux petits soins avec plein de bonnes adresses à nous conseiller! Un endroit idéal pour passer un weekend entre copines!
Merci pour tout :)
I can't say enough about how exceptional our stay was. Irene contacted us a couple days beforehand to ask if we wanted any advice on what to do in the area. She set everything up for us and it was all excellent. The winery she suggested in Aloxe-Corton was so inviting and gave it a personal touch! When we pulled up to the manoir, we were so excited. Then we climbed up to the dovecote, and WOW! I can't believe the architecture that went into this. Truly amazed! There are bikes on the property to take a nice ride on the quiet roads.
The manoir ranks high up there as one of the most special places my husband and I have stayed. Located about a 15min drive from beaune, the manoir was well situated close to the main road and many of the vineyards and Dijon. Thanks to Irene's recommendations and help in reservations, we had some fantastic meals on this trip. Irene was a fantastic host and this is one place we hope to return to again soon !
We loved loved loved staying at the Manoir Equivocal's Dovecote!!
The tubular shaped accommodation was gracefully designed and tastefully decorated.
The bed at the top of the tiers was so comfortable we overslept every night.
Irene the host is adorable. She made us feel right at home, gave us fabulous restaurant and vineyard suggestions and even made reservations for us!
We like this peaceful breathtaking place so much we decided to stay one more night.
The beautiful Manoir has other rooming options in case you have a larger group so make sure to check those out!
You need to have you own car with Gps as everything is spread out yet not too far from each other.
The dovecote was exactly as we hoped. It truly is a great place for a romantic getaway. Irene was absolutely fantastic in the run up helping us book restaurants and wine tasting. Definitely worth the trip!
My only regret in staying at Manoir Equivocal was not booking more nights. Our experience there was literally life changing. The manor is stunning both inside the dovecote and the surrounding lands. The hospitality of our host Irene was so refreshing and listening to the stories of how they lovingly restored the manor was fascinating and inspiring. Breakfast was the best we had in our two week stay in France and Irene's help with us finding great places to eat and taste wine was most appreciated. We most definitely will be back.
Le calme et la magie du lieu nous on envoûté ! Sans compté l'accueil chaleureux d'Irène ! Le petit déjeuné délicieux auprès du feu était la petite touche parfaite juste avant le départ. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir !
Clémence et Florian

About the Host, Irène
Musicienne, j'ai étudié le piano, l' histoire de l'art et l'ethno-musicologie.
Après quelques années de vie en Chine et de nombreux voyages j'ai décidé de gérer les projets artistiques, agricoles, événementiels et d'hébergements au manoir.
Il s'agit d'une demeure familiale que nous restaurons depuis plusieurs années avec une vingtaine d'amis architectes, designers de plusieurs nationalités.
Je peux aisément communiquer à l'écrit et à l'oral en anglais, chinois mandarin et italien.
J'aime particulièrement les hôtes airbnb et me sens très proche de cette manière de voyager! Nous vous attendons en Bourgogne pour déguster les grands vins de Bourgogne!
