A little green haven: we have a garden in the city

What your guests will love about your home
Our house is a beautiful colonial bungalow located in the heart of Pondicherry. From the entrance door, you will get to an indoor patio where small birds sometimes nests. This is our living room! On the ground floor there is one bedroom with a king size bed, my office, the kitchen courtyard and another small room with a projector for watching movies. The bathroom also evolves around the patio and you can enjoy a bath with a view on the plants. On the 1st floor, we have 2 bedrooms with A/C and 1 bathroom with toilet. All rooms have large ceiling fan to keep the house away from the heat. Most meals are taken outside in the garden under a shed and away from the sun.
What your guests will love about your neighborhood

Pondicherry (generally referred to as ‘Pondy’) was under French rule until 1954 and some people here still speak French (and English with French accents).
Hotels, restaurants and ‘lifestyle’ shops sell a seductive vision of the French-subcontinental aesthetic, enhanced by Gallic creative types whose presence has in turn attracted Indian artists and designers. Thus Pondy’s vibe: less faded colonial-era ville, more a bohemian-chic, New Age–cum–Old World hangout on the international travel trail.

The older part of this former French colony (where you'll probably spend most of your time) is full of quiet, clean, shady cobbled streets, lined with bougainvillea-draped colonial-era townhouses numbered in an almost logical manner. The newer side of town is typically, hectically South Indian.
Part of the vibe stems from the presence of the internationally famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram and its offshoot just out of town, Auroville, which draw large numbers of spiritually minded visitors.

Enjoy the shopping, the French food (hello steak!), the sea air and plenty of yoga and meditation.
