I'm a little late in writing this review considering that I couldn't wait to get back and share my experience at 'La Closerie' with my friends and family. I had absolutely no idea about the location or what to expect until we finally reached there after a tiring 9 hour drive from Bengaluru and Voilà! A little piece of heaven, tucked right in the center of the 'White Town', a 1 minute walk from the sea and 'the Promenade', La Closerie was a wonderfully pleasant surprise! Reasonably priced, aesthetically designed, impeccably maintained, the place goes all out to impress you. The pool in the middle of the guest house is the perfect place to relax and the lounge area is an ideal place where you can sit for hours. Quite frankly, i did not quite feel like stepping out of this wonder of a retreat. Annie, the owner, has single handedly done a commendable job at doing up this place and maintaining its standards. We sat together and had a few drinks along with my friends in the evening and it seemed like we were being hosted by some friends. I think the only slightly negative point here is that people come here expect it to be more than a B&B and looking at how luxuriously done up it is, one expects service to the standards of a decent hotel which is not the expectation that the owner has set out. So please bear in mind that it is, at the end of the day, not a hotel but a B&B and an excellent one! Needless to say, I have been raving about this place and have recommended it to quite a few of my friends and family. I surely look forward to visiting again with my special someone as I promised Annie :). Great job guys! Hope you finish the wine bar at the terrace with the sea view before we plan our next trip!
