Stayed here with my daughter. Have known Marco for a very many years; he is an aesthete and generosity personified, speaks fluent Mayalali and is a well-known figure in this State. Above all, he is a delightful host. The place is artfully rustic and authentic, something no hotel can ever give. The cook and his family have been with Marco... More

We had a delightful stay at Marcos' and his family's place for Christmas 2015. Expect tasteful food, restful nights and joyful evenings. We felt as if we were home from the very beginning, thank you very much Marco!

There is a real sense of living in a grand merchant's house as it might have been in the past. It is set in a lot of it's own space in an interesting residential road, detached from the normal tourist circuit. The house and it's rooms are large and unspoilt by progress in a positive sense, and this feeling is... More

This is a very special home stay. It sounds paradoxical, but Marc, the French host, has managed to create a wonderfully authentic Indian homestay. The traditional house, built around a garden courtyard, retains its original character, and with the exception of electricity, hot water, and internet, everything is as it was a hundred years ago. The furnishings are traditional, with... More

A special experience,after two weeks touring Golden Triangle the Rouge was just what was needed,unique accommodation and atmosphere to slow the pace.

We stayed at La Dame Rouge for too short a time - the nobly proportioned rooms, full of antique furniture, sculpture and curious carvings, were places to dream, to read, to listen to Marco's stories of life in India - Tanga's food was wonderful - we feasted like sultans and sultanas - the beach was only a short exciting ride...

I spent 1 week in La Dame Rouge and I was very impressed by the excellent and special place and its atmosphere, and by the lovely host family that is managing it. The room was great and the food was really excellent! I will for sure return one day (hopefully soon).
