We loved this guesthouse and would have happily made it a home base for a longer stay. I was a little concerned because some reviewers had uncomplimentary things to say about the owner. But I think it must have been about them, not her. Annie is a warm and fascinating person, in no way intrusive and wasn't unkind to any... More

Lovely relaxing place to stay. The property is lovely. This is more like a top end homestay than a hotel. Annie was so helpful and really interesting to chat with.. The other guests were all interesting, it was at times like being in a mix of Agatha Christie characters, a real gem.

The property is well constructed but the management isn't comforting. Henceforth the experience isn't worth the money. It's not a good place if you are just wanting to chill at your will. You are checked and taunted for the slightest things like walking over her grass or even putting music on your phone (how loud can a phone speaker get).... More

We stayed for two days at La Closerie. Anne was extremely helpful in organizing our travel within Pondicherry (getting us a scooty - that we didnt use, an auto and a cab). She also helped us in getting a cab to Chennai and made sure we got a trip to Mahabalipuram within the same price. Also, I had checked the... More

The moment you step inside the ambience hits you.... you know you have chosen right. This is a place for people who want to get away from the clutter and noise and relax for a few days. There are lots of areas to sit around and chill, you can enjoy the plants and the artefacts , its a total experience.... More

We would like to share our short but terrible experience in this beautiful hotel. We are both passionate about hotel business, worked in many top brand luxury hotels, visited a lot of properties around the world. Always been very welcome until we walked-in this hotel. Inquiring about availability, we've been told by the person in charge that the hotel was... More

I stayed at La Closerie in first week of November 2014. It is so beautiful and elegant that the moment you step inside you are transported into a new world...... a world where all things are perfect, artistic and you can not deciede which part or corner is more beautiful than the other. I was lucky to have met the... More

La Closerie, was a home away from home, with M'me Annie making sure that our stay was comfortable, homely, and went out of her way to inquire if we were to require any vehicles for rent. La Closerie, is not your run of the mill hotel. On entering , you notice the pool , the sky-walk, and the staircases. which... More

This is a really smart and well designed/decorated place. It is a haven of peace and quiet, with a really nice style to it. Annie the owner was around to help and chat, and talk to us about the area and advice on places to see, eat and arranged taxis for us too. Nice breakfasts of fruit, French bread, jam... More

It was absolutely a pleasure to stay here. When I came there the woman forgot that two more people came, that means I had no room. She showed me two other rooms, and I could choose the nicest one for the same price. The rooms are all very nice, warm, modern, and every room has there charms. If you need... More
