La Villa is a 19th century manor that has been restored lovingly to create a luxurious boutique stay in the heart of the old quarter of Pondicherry called ‘the white town’, at walking distance from the main attractions.
Respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture, inspired by its Pondicherien past, the original walls of the ground floor converse with the immaculate white walls, teak wood, and glass and metal of the new extension. Old wood from levelled houses has been reused to create elegant contemporary furniture and local handicrafts are combined with the most luxurious and sophisticated western design.
The property’s USP lies in its personalised service by a very caring manager and an efficient staff, who leave no room for complaint.
La Villa features six suites. Each suite comes with a either a private sitting area or a terrace or balcony. The use of noble and natural materials like precious wood, fabrics, silver cutlery, fine porcelain along with a distinctive sense of colour and detail draws you into the atmosphere of poetic intimacy and non-ostentatious luxury.
The modern and elegant air-conditioned rooms are equipped with a flat-screen cable TV, electric kettle and DVD and a minibar. Featuring a shower, private bathrooms, the rooms also come with a hairdryer and free Fragonard toiletries. You can enjoy a garden view from all the rooms.
The restaurant in the Courtyard is the main dining area in theSouth Indian and continental cuisine. Breakfast is served in the rooms.
