Annie (the owner of this beautiful guest house) has created an absolute gem in one of the best spots in Pondicherry. She has designed this with such taste that it is up there with the most luxurious of hotels and at a far more reasonable price (rooms were going for 3750R to 5000R when we were there in Nov 2013). On top of the perfect blend of distinguished decoration, modern equipments and comfortable beds that ensure a great night's sleep, there is a great little pool (with jacuzzi light jets at one end) to cool down, a massage room (that I unfortunately didn't have the time to test) and a great top roof view of Pondi and the sea. This huge rooftop will soon welcome a wine tasting terrace if her brilliant ideas come to plan. As if that wasn't enough Annie and Alain are the most delightful of hosts, giving us great addresses and getting us the best possible deal to travel across the south of India (trust me I searched and nothing came close to what Annie was able to get us).
WE LOVED THIS PLACE and hope we can come back very soon! Don't even look elsewhere if you have the chance to get a room here - I advise you book well in advance as this haven of 6 rooms is bound to be fully booked when people catch on to la Closerie.
One word of caution for families with young children. The staircase and beautiful objects here and there are not suited for very young ones or kids that are slightly unruly. Our kids (10 and 7) loved this place but are rather careful. Most of the rooms are very big and can fit 4 easily!
