Anyone looking for a beautiful boutique hotel to stay at to explore the quaint lanes of Pondicherry. Great for all types of travellers.

What we love

  • This mansion is housed in an 18th century structure that once belonged to a French family and was then occupied by the Department of Education, earlier called ‘Instruction Publique’ - the board still rests above the entrance door.
  • The restoration of this beautiful mansion has been more a process of repairs rather than replacements. It’s probably why, the aura of that time can still be felt when you walk through the courtyard, high ceiling rooms and verandahs.
  • The beautiful courtyard with the perfect greens is the protagonist of the mansion that changes its character depending on the time of the day and does it to perfection! You’ll see why when you visit.
  • This is a great place to discover the fabled Creole cuisine

What to know

  • The rooms have been named after former French possessions, names of ‘loges’ and ‘factories’. The suites have been named after the better known French areas
  • Some of the rooms have bathrooms incorporated within the room, without a partition. Some may love the idea, some may be against it vehemently.
  • If you’re traveling with someone who is differently abled, try and pick a room on the ground floor as the mansion does not have an elevator.
  • Find your way to the hidden wine making tank!
