Its a great french villa with beautiful & classy interiors. The location is also great, its on a street right next to the beach road.

The hotel is a 100 mtrs walk from the promenade sea face, on Dumas street in white town, it is perfect mix of Tamilian Indian architecture with french decor and sensibilities. Breakfast was...

I had taken the room on the ground floor initially which was not that great. Go for rooms on the first floor, which are awesome. Located close to the beach. Breakfast was ok - pretty basic. There are good restaurants around the place though

The rooms are so cute and the best maintained rooms I have seen in Pondicherry. I stayed in Room 2 and I loved it. It was perfect where room 2 did not get mobile reception. It was peaceful and I had a very relaxed stay. Annie the owner was very helpful and cheerful. The staff was very accommodating as well.
