Me and my friend had to leave our room (in another guesthouse in Pondicherry) as we decided to stay longer in town, so we asked around and found this amazing place. We were so surprised to find such a great colonial atmosphere and we fell in love straight away with the room on the second floor. Finally after 2 months... More

I stayed here for two nights. I really liked it here. The staff and Sabine were very genuinely friendly and it was very pleasant to stay there. I also liked the free breakfast, it was very tasty. It had a good location, and the Wifi was good. It is close to everything important. THe beds are super comfy as well.

It was my second stay there at Sabine's place, an energetic and smily french owner who knows a lot about Pondi and is very keen to share informations and good tips. Just delightful again. The place is beautiful, the rooms have a breezy balcony with little Tamias (squirrels) visiting you, and it is adapted to our standards for mosquito protection... More

We stayed in this wonderful guesthouse for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Each one is it's rooms seems to have a private outside space, and it's a wonderful oasis of calm and tranquility. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in the coloniale suite for one night; simply stunning. The staff and owner are... More

I stayed here for 4 nights and would have stayed longer had my plans permitted it. Entering the door from the somewhat noisy exterior is entering another world full of plants, quiet, bowls of flowers and a vast collection of memorabilia, obviously collected with love and care. I had a splendid room: terrace with table and chairs, large bed and... More

We stayed here for one night. The place is beautifully maintained. At a very good price with the location just 5 min away from the beach. This place gave us the proper feel of colonial properties. Location of this property awed us most as every good/recommended places to eat are nearby and mostly walk able. Pros: 1. Spacious rooms 2.... More

We can recommend this guest house for its charm, its owner, the personnel and its situation. The building is in the old French part of the town. Typical of colonial times and peaceful. The room was clean and we used the huge mosquito net over the bed. The guesthouse is only a few minutes from the tourist spots: two minutes... More

We stayed here for a night and the room instantly reminded me of my old home when I was a kid. It is an old colonial building with the rooms decorated with no colonial markings on it. Beautiful place, warm hosts, great location and super service. My room infact had an swing in it :D The place is located optimally... More

We stayed here over a long weekend and had a fun time. It's a sweet little place with a lot of yester-year charm. An old mansion converted to a b&b, the rooms are full of artifacts and paintings. We stayed in the room 'Julmella' which had a super high bed, and a cute little balcony. Good memories of breakfast and... More
