If anybody looking for a relaxed stay with the touch of colonial feel, White town is the area u have to look out. Thanks to Sabine the host, very flexible when I requested for a late check out. Breakfast was limited with crossiant, butter, jam,...

There are so many great things about colonel heritage- the location, the decor, the rooms. Uniquely decorated with no detail spared, you really feel like you're in a French oasis. Beds were comfortable and showers great! Would be amazing if they did food also..

Pondicherry (Now also called “Puducherry’) was the chief French settlement of colonial India. The French section of Pondicherry has streets that are laid out in a well-planned grid pattern and are best explored through leisurely walks especially for experiential travelers like me.The buildings are easily recognizable by their elaborate doorways, garden courtyards with multicoloured bougainvilleas and the buildings themselves are...

This hotel is a converted French colonial mansion. It is stunning; the front garden, in particular, is a delightful haven, as it was presumably designed to be, from the heat of India. The owner is friendly and attentive. The staff are engaging and entertaining. However, this is not a cheap hotel, and for the price we expected rather more than...
