We visited La Maison for lunch in a small group of friends. The food was decent with generous portions across all courses. The location is great with fowls, turkey and a couple of dogs roaming around. The dogs were friendly and were the highlight. Though they didn't seem too well taken care of which was upsetting. The daschund had an... More

La Maison is beautifully located in the midst of various hills in Kotagiri. The location is picturesque from every angle. But the homestead fits perfectly in the beautiful view with this gorgeously decorated wood/concrete structure. The owner has really taken his time in giving La Maison a beautiful charm that makes this place beautiful both inside and out. The service... More

Heard of the place from many friends who were all ga-ga about the whole package. The place didn't disappoint one bit. Quiet little bungalow on a ridge with a small tea factory within walking distance. the food is either french or indian and the host Monsieur Benoit is your typical frenchman and a lovely host. the rooms are tastefully done...

Had heard a lot about the place from friends and was finally lucky to visit it over the long weekend. It is a nice heritage bungalow, maintained nicely by Mr. Benoit who is the proprietor. There's a homely touch, a wonderful place for the kids to enjoy amidst the fowls, pets and some domesticated animals. They have fixed continental menu... More

We reached Kotagiri after a quite strenuous journey through the Nilgiris and were really surprised about the wonderful house, the friendly staff, especially Kanchana, the host and cook - while the owner was absent - the quiet and clean rooms, the bone fire and the delicious meals.

An excellent host, very friendly, went out of his way to meet our needs. Location a bit away from town, breathtaking views, We had a number of food restrictions, so limited scope for food variety. Every thing just perfect. The only thing was that we felt that the price was on the higher side with respect to the amenities provided.... More

It isn’t easy to find La Maison, especially as there are no signposts to guide you along the way and not all locals of that area are familiar with the place as well. After 1 or 2 misses and a wrong turn here and there along the way, we managed to reach our final destination. But, before that, you get... More

La Maison is the perfect place for feeling at home, away from home. Perfect location, incredible host, nice people, divine food, long hikes, welcoming local people. Also a great place for self-reflection while connecting with nature. Judy van Zon

Booked for Sunday lunch on a friend's recommend and weren't disappointed. La Maison is a little tricky to find but the views through the tea plantations are fabulous. No hotel signs seen but a map and a smart phone got us there. The house is perched on the hillside with commanding views over the valley and down to the plains.... More
