It was our first trip to Pondicherry and we were looking for a quiet place to stay at, in the french quarters. A travel blog led us to La Closerie and we hit jackpot.
La Closerie is a charming house located right behind Alliance Francaise on Dumas street. Its got a dip pool and a green patch in the centre of the property with rooms on either side. Its also got a gracious living room, with an interesting collection of literature, to lounge around in. We were a group of 3 and the room we'd chosen had a mezzanine floor with a mattress which suited us well. The room was done up nicely with furniture that's functional and eclectic. The only thing that we didn't like about it was the bathroom whose entrance had curtains instead of a door which made it uncomfortable to use.
The service was unobtrusive and the breakfast which comprised of fresh fruits, juice, croissants, preserves and coffee was healthy and filling. Agline, who was managing the place while we were there pointed us to some good french restaurants in the vicinity and was very helpful in general.
The location of La Closerie is perfect to explore the french quarters and we got lucky that our stay coincided with the Bonjour India festival, organized by Alliance Francaise held on the promenade. We were literally a hop, skip and jump away from the main performance area.
A very comfortable and charming place, will recommend La Closerie to anyone traveling to Pondicherry
