This 120-year-old garden house has won the prestigious Viellies Maisons Françaises (VMF) award for French architectural heritage and is the town’s first private luxury villa. The Belgian tiles imported from Vietnam and the Indo-Chine bedroom embellished with shades of Shanghai red reveal the story of the original owner, a Franco-Tamil merchant who made his fortune in Vietnam. Pondicherry’s vibrant F&B scene and culinary traditions (including Tamil Creole) come calling to the villa, courtesy the on-site chefs, while their list of activities includes everything from diving to surfing.
Rs. 35,000 for the entire villa
