La Villa

La Villa is a 19th century mansion, located in the heart of the old quarter of Pondicherry which is within walking distance of the main attractions.


Respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture, this 19th century manor provides all the facilities of a boutique hotel, featuring six suites, a swimming pool and a restaurant. Inspired by the towns past, the original walls of the old ground floor manor converse with the white immaculate walls, the teak wood, the glass and the metal of the new extension.


La Villa is located in the French quarter of the town of Pondicherry, three hours drive south of Chennai.


There is plenty to see in this area from ashrams, French colonial Pondicherry, museums, temples and textiles.

Why we like it

La Villa is small enough to take the entire property (six suites) with your friends and family. The rooftop pool is lovely, and with so few guests, it often feels like you have the place to yourself.
