Spacious rooms with modern baths in a beautiful heritage villa, part of the French Quarter of Puducherry.
French Style Luxury B&B is a certified discovery. Here’s why. It’s a heritage French villa in Pondicherry with beautiful furnishings in a great location with a lovely helpful host. The icing on the cake is the down to earth price at this heritage French villa in Pondicherry. The villa has been in the family of the first Chief Minister of independent Pondicherry for four generations. A quirky feature of this heritage French villa in Pondicherry is the numerous traditional artifacts of the region displayed around the house. The lady of the house loves them and can’t resist adding them to her collection when she chances on pretty pieces. Mr. Bascarene, the current owner is running it as a B&B till he can pass it on to his children. He is a quiet, soft-spoken person but extremely thoughtful and helpful beyond the call of duty.
On a quiet leafy street of the French Quarter, this heritage French villa in Pondicherry is well maintained and furnished with lovely furniture and linen making each room a very attractive space. Originally a single storey house, the first floor has been added in keeping with its heritage character. The entrance area of the house has a tiny foyer with an antique roll top desk. This takes you to a living room and the two bedrooms that lead off it. The living room has plenty of seating and is a comfortable place to relax. A staircase takes you up to the breakfast room, another large area with large French windows letting in sunshine. There are three small café-style tables with chairs. Two doors from this area lead to two guest rooms. There’s a fifth room on the terrace, which is perfect for single occupants or long stay guests. All the rooms have ensuite bathrooms that have been renovated with modern amenities.
Breakfast is served in the continental style and is delicious with freshly baked croissants, fresh juice, fruit platter and eggs. The owner is usually around to greet guests when they arrive and will help with information to plan sightseeing or shopping.
