La Closerie is set is a great location near the coast, sights and good restaurants. A lot of though has been put into the decor and it's beauty runs through from the courtyard to the bedrooms. There are different places to hang about and relax which was great. Our room was spacious with a nice 4 poster bed. Baguettes were... More

Well, this is perfect example why you should always learn from your mistakes, 1st, I visited this place on new year 2015 with my 8 biker friends, the usual rules were no smoking, no drinking, no loud talks, no late parties, no peeing, no breathing, (pun intended) etc etc etc, but still we agreed to stay just for the place...

Annie is an amazing host! I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. She gave us a scooter to roam around the streets and explore the town. I would prefer this over the other typical hotels such as villa shanti and such. You will be staying at a beautiful location very close to the beach. Ideal... More

La Closerie.. Is a true gem in the heart of Pondicherry located near Promenade beach and walking distance from a bunch of cute cafes. Annie has literally put her heart out there to create La Closerie and it's hard for one to deny this. Breakfast is healthy and simple, each room is super clean and evidently detailed to perfection.

We spend two nights in La Closerie in January. It was a wonderful experience. The management and the staff there are very enthusiastic and helpful. Keep up the good work. The breakfast the provide is also very good and worth mentioning. I would recommend La Closerie for family as well as friends.

I think I have had most interesting time in LA Closeire, White Town, Pondicherry. What a brilliantly designed property. I think one should just come here to look up the French design. It is very near to the beach. One can walk to most of the nearby places including the Aurobindo Ashram. The rooms are good size, good sleep quality.... More

This was my first home-stay kind of thing. I was highly skeptical while booking but the place amazed me. Very nicely done Bungalow. The owner (Annie) is an artist - that's what I learnt from people there. Excellent upkeep and very well done interiors. The staff is super efficient. sit out places are cosy and comfortable. Location gets 100 points.... More
