We chose this place seeing the good reviews about this place. However this place was a nice one, a quiet and a warm environment. We had the luxury to select the room of ur choice, since it was an off seaon, and we got the priority. It was like a french colonial house and rooms were diffrent and ggod. But... More

I did not stay here, but I desperately wanted to during the recent Good friday weekend! Several times I tried the numbers and the email id given on their official websites, but the mobile number was always switched off and my multiple emails were never answered. Either this place has gone out of business or their communication system is seriously... More

If you want spend some quality time with your family and friends, this is the place to be. The heritage villa is a very private one with only 3 rooms, one lounge with classic furniture and a small Courtyard. We occupied 2 of the rooms (Jasmine and Frangipani), so the villa was almost ours. The property is very well maintained,... More

After researching the best option to stay in heritage hotels or guest houses (there are plenty in Pondy and tough to select one!) we selected this Guest House. We are 2 couples visiting Pondy over Republic Day weekend and had a great time. Pros : • Great Location, just 2 minutes’ walk from the beach. Very easily traceable, as it’s... More

In the middle of the heritage town, Villa Christophe is a very good guest house. The rooms are interestingly designed, I stayed in Jasmine (it has a bed on the loft). They served a simple breakfast and the staff was very helpful. Overall a great experience!

We got here a little late - around 8PM at night so things had quietened down in the French quarter by then. The housekeeper Babulal was waiting for us and upon escorting us inside, we were charmed by the place! It's not a huge place, but its so well done and of course you get the feeling of peace and...

When we checked into this hotel, we checked into a 3 room home where each room had a different style and character. We choose the room with the split level. Since only 6 guests stay at a time the villa is very private and quiet. Its in the main french quarter with access to lots of dining options

Once again at Pondicherry, I am sitting in a run down hotel, thinking of shifting my stay to a better accommodation. I call up a few Villas in White Town but they all say they are running full for the weekend. Finally I get a a ring back from one of the Villa's, I am happy and thank my stars.... More

The rooms were good and were very well managed by Babu and Martin. Those people never made us feel that we were far off from home. The french style place and the amazing breakfast that Babulal served was great. And when we were unable to get a bike on rent Martin borrowed us his bike to travel around.. The backyard... More

This recently restored villa, located in a quiet neighbourhood of French Quarter has just 3 rooms - Frangipani, Hibiscus and Jasmine. Once inside, you get tranported back in time. Each room is unique and decorated tastefully with art and period furniture. There is a small courtyard which adds to the overall ambience. Beach is just a short walk away and... More
