If you are looking for a quiet , self-contained , visually stimulating property to read a book, take a dip , laze in the numerous cozy niches around the property to beat the Pondi-day heat Le CLoserie should be your blind choice.Having done all the touristy and must-see/do things in Pondi on prevoius trip , i wanted a place that i need not leave during the day , where i could relax undisturbed and close to the Beach road in the White town for evenings out.Le Closerie and Anne (the very busy and gracious Indian-French hostess who is sweet and accommodating) were perfect for this. The property is her brain-child and is in itself a pleasure to explore with the numerous details of decor and architecture. Breakfast was aptly healthy and filling. The fresh Croissants were inhale-worthy. Will definitely look to stay here next time around. Highly recommend it. Since finishing touches are underway , do not expect big on the cafe service but you could check with Anne on this.

Room Tip: Chose the rooms at the back end of the property which are cooler and not-road facing since they are less exposed. Also the bathrooms do not have doors so if travelling as friends it means the inconvenience of having to step out of the rooms to give privacy. And do take your swim wear as the pool is a life saver in the Pondi heat. (If you forget it, head to Casablanca on Mission st like we did)

A very tastefully done place and centrally located as well. We landed up spending more time at Le Closerie than actually scouting the city. The breakfast and rooms we excellent! We also had a really nice time with the proprietors of the property. I would definitely recommend this place!

Having never experienced a guesthouse or a home stay in India, we chose La Closerie with some amount of uncertainty. We like our creature comforts and normally choose a Taj, Gateway or Trident option where we can and although unfair to compare - - La Closerie did not let us down.
The rooms with the mezzanine floor (which sleeps 2) is absolutely great for families with little children. A special than to our hosts (Annie and Alan) who were absolutely great, very helpful and helped with bookings / plan our days in Pondicherry etc.

Room Tip: Annie showed us a few options and we liked all rooms bar room 1.

The location is superb, rooms are decorated with taste, breakfast is good and the welcome is very warm.
This Guest House is located in the middle of the French Quarter and you can do everything on foot.
If you want to spend a pleasant moment, I recommend!!
