The guesthouse is ideally situated in the French neighborhood in a quiet street where you can walk to visit the typical streets of Pondicherry or go to the sea road. I really liked the decoration of the place, bright colors and many decoration objects and paintings creating a warm and peaceful atmosphere. Many plants and a very nice terrasse roof.... More

The place is located in french colony. Near to the beach road. Quite and calm location. The ambiance is very good and room is very clean. The owners are very friendly. Choose a AC room so that you enjoy the stay in humid weather. Had a nice vacation at this location.

This was my second time in Patricia's place. The last time I visited 7 years back. That time Patricia alone was managing the show, now she has Michele his son to support. As usual wonderful experience, this time it was more so because we had our one and a half year old kid. It's refreshing every time I come here,... More

We spent 5 nights here over the Pongal holiday, and enjoyed the colourful and relaxed atmosphere of the guest house, and loved exploring charming and lively Pondicherry. We always seemed to have the most interesting conversations over the breakfast table with Tvarious guests from interesting corners of the world. Part of the charm of the guest house is the vivid...

Patricia's Guest House is a soulful place. I felt very close to nature while I stayed here. A variety of plants thrive in the house making the air fresher to breathe in. I stayed in the Family room. It has two beds and a clean bathroom with a terrific shower & a window for circulation. There are two windows in... More

The place was really charming with all the antiques. Mrs Patricia was putting up Christmas decorations when I reached. I got the room on group floor, opening to an open courtyard. Room was clean and well furnished. I spent time relaxing on the first floor terrace(remember to carry mosquito repellent though ). The place was quite close to the beach... More

As we were not lucky in Pondicherry, we came late due to a cancellation flight and then one day spent at the Nallam Clinic, thanks for the tip Patricia by the way!!! The place is still amazing and quiet. The suite on the top floor (ok a few stairs to climb... And so what?) is an adorable spot to recover... More

Close to the ashram, the paper factory, the essential oils laboratory and some of the best restaurants in Pondy. Olivier, the host, is a very interesting conversationist. However, the house would need some well deserved maintenance to improve the rooms and make them a little quieter and more functional. We had to leave it to meet some friends in another... More
