Benoit Siat’s love affair with India started in the 1970s. La Maison is a culmination of that romance—an 1880s bungalow set in a 10- acre estate that was originally built for an adventurous Scotsman. La Maison offers a choice of four rooms—including the cheerful Sunrise room, that retains its original colonial charm and takes you back to a time when much of this area was wild and untamed. La Maison’s French menu includes decadent desserts, with souffles as the highlight. The villa is in the heart of Nilgiris’ tea country and most of the walking trails criss-cross tea plantations leading to gorgeous view points.
